In anticipation of the Junker Jane Style Doll swap, which will be opening for sign-ups soon, I have been practicing by making ornaments in her weird and wonky style.  If you google "Junker Jane" and choose "images", you will get a ton of pictures of her work.



The following three pictures are the first ones I did.  I went a little heavy on the "creepy".







These last two are more kid-friendly; I think the cat is the best combination of my personal style with the Junker Jane look.





I hope lots of you will join us in the swap.

I repeat my question from your other post - when do you sleep, woman? Or do you have elves who finish your projects while you sleep? Hmmm, minions, perhaps?

I knew they were yours as soon as I saw the thumbnail! They're great, Leslie. I looked at these on my Google search yesterday of JJ's work. Love them!

Thanks, Smmarrt!  Alas, there is not a minion in sight (...I could probably use a minion.  Where does one find a minion?)

I've never heard of junker jane before now, but i love this style. Ive actually made a couple things a while ago with a similar style, it's nice to see this kind of style spread more. These are really cute too, I'd love ornaments like these.

Hahaha! LOL!!

BTW I love your Junker-Jane-style ornaments. Not too creepy if you ask me.
Just right. I am someone who doesn't like creepy, even not creepy-cute.

This isn't, I would hang those in my Christmas tree. But maybe than they would NEED some sort of creepy: to scare off my kids so they won't eat all the Christmas chocolates in the tree.... HAHAHA!

those are great!  I hadn't heard of junker jane either and i love this style!  so fun and colourful, full of whimsy and just a little edge.  Oh I wish these were mine Smiley

Not sure my sewing skills are ready to try this sort of thing myself, will have to work on that.

 Love these. I might give ornaments a try and if they turn out well join the swap. Then again, I know whatever I make won't compare to these. They are fanastic!

After posting last I went to your blog. Truly amazing. I think I'm in love with Junker Jane (and with you now). I reposted your Junker Jane blog on my blog to share (of course with all the links going back to you). I think you have inspired me to go "Junker Jane" style and maybe even join the swap!

Like I said, truly amazing!

Thanks, ana4! You should add your blog to your profile page...I can't find a link to it.  Yes, Junker Jane is really cool, and addicting once you start making things in her style.

Leslie,

I got your message and tried to reply, twice, but I don't see my message in the outbox so I don't know if you got it.  Cheesy I just wanted to let you know that I never thought of it that way, through your eyes. I have fixed the issues (hopefully) and you still rock!
