ABOUT JEN AND ZOEY



This site was created and is primarily run by Jen (Zoey's mom).  After a couple of years now of playing dolls with Zoey, crafting for them (and with them) and planning little doll adventures as well as parties and gatherings I decided that we should have a place to compile and share all of our ideas as well as to share our love of dolls with others...and that's what I hope this place turns out to be!

Now...a little about us:


Zoey loves dancing and takes ballet lessons weekly throughout the school year, she loves fairies and building fairy houses, reading, hiking and playing with friends.  She also LOVES playing with dolls...American Girl dolls to be precise.  Her first doll was a Just Like You doll which she named Zoe.  Since then she has gotten several more dolls to add to her collection.  She currently has Zoe, Kristen, McKenna Brooks, Emily Bennett, Julie Albright and Bella.  Her Bitty Baby, Lucy, has been in our family since Zoey was just two years old.                                      

I am Zoey's mother, (Jen) and I have to say that I too have been bitten by the doll love bug! I never imagined sharing a love of dolls with Zoey as much as I do and we're just deciding to go with it!  As far as I am concerned...the less my daughter is "plugged in" to technology and gaming systems, etc. the better, and I am all for her enjoying being a child for as long as possible. Imagination and play go hand in hand and I love that this is something that we can both share together.  In my eyes, it's not just a love of dolls and play that's going on...it's also creative writing, history lessons, exploration of arts and crafts, photography, role play, etc. When I am not playing dolls with Zoey I can be found at work (I am a preschool teacher at a Montessori school and do freelance design work for scrapbooking manufacturers), or attending to Zoey's various school functions or running her to and from dance classes.  I love to bake, read, hike with family and friends and I also enjoy photography and blogging.  I have one doll (which stays in Zoey's room with her doll family), Rebecca Rubin.

    1. I know that I've seen people actually use the boxes that the dolls come in as doll beds by just putting bedding on them...cut out magazine pictures for wall art...look at the dollar store for mini items for things for the dolls too! I am always surprised at what I can find!

  19. HI! I absolutely LOVE this website! I have five American Girl dolls, including Felicity, Marie-Grace, Caroline , Molly, and a Just-Like-You doll named Leah. I also have a hearts for hearts girl named Dell, a Strawberry Shortcake doll (which is actually pretty much the size of an AG doll) that I renamed Emily, two dolls that I got from Trade days and thrift stores, named Mary-Sunflower and Evangeline, and two tiny baby dolls. I also have a mini Kit doll and a new doll from the 1940s (Yes, it is actually FROM the 1940s) that I have to pick up soon from my grandmother's house. This website has inspired me to make more doll accessories and things!

  21. I just wanted to say that I recently found your blog and it is adorable! I just finished reading all of the posts and I am totally inspired and amazed (and a bit jealous!) of all of your great ideas. I am an adult collector, but LOVE AG. It's great that you and your daughter (along with your friends too) have found something that you both enjoy together.

    I just started my own doll blog recently, if you have chance come check it out at http://sayhellotomylittlefriends.wordpress.com/ Looking forward to seeing what else you post, such great ideas.
