Crazy girl with occasional strange idea let loose on internet; film at 11.

I grew up in Louisville, KY. My mom kept a cabinet full of miscellaneous craft items, and we would build stuff from her collection of odd parts. Inspired by her willingness to gather unusual artifacts, over the years I've saved pieces of this or that. Stay tuned to see what I've been compiling from the stockpile!

Also, these days I cut and splice T-shirts, thrift store clothing, fabric remnants, in addition to making clothing from scratch using yardage.

In college I was a textiles & clothing major, 'fashion merchandising', as they called it, with a built-in business minor, though I added a second minor of art history.

In recent years I've had the honor of making costumes for my favorite tribal bellydance troupe Gypsy Hands!

In case you're wondering about the name, 'jennyflex8' has been my ebay moniker for over nine years. There was a minor Bond girl named 'Jenny Flex' in the film "A View to a Kill", played by Alison Doody. I always liked that name, and the numeral 8 is my all-time favorite number.
