Whatsa Hen Pen?

Welcome to The Hen Pen - a gathering place for hens like me that love all things that involve sewing and crafting. I've been sewing since I was in the single digits, thanks to my Nanny Lusk, and I've finally come to point where I believe what I make might just make someone else happy. 

So what exactly is a hen pen? There are two definitions in my world. The first by Merriam-Webster:

Hen Pen  - noun ( \ˈhen-ˈpen) -
1. a shelter or house for female chickens

And then there was my Papa's definition:

Hen Pen  - noun ( \ˈhen-ˈpen) -
1. a group of women sewing; usually is accompanied by lots of idle gossip, laughter, and general "clucking" for hours on end


About Me



Alright, so maybe that's not the best picture of me. (But I do *love* me some foot long chili cheese dogs - especially when they're from that dirty little oceanside bar we found on my honeymoon in Myrtle Beach.)



That's better. This is me and the husband. Isn't he hilarious?



And this is me and my little twin, otherwise known as The Kid. He's a few years older now (6, to be exact) but this is still one of my favorite pictures of us ever.

I'm Danni. I love all things sewing, reading, writing, and being creative in general. I started The Hen Pen in February of 2011 as a way to share what I love doing most - sewing - with others. So far I've been infinitely blessed with a steady flow of followers and hope to continue bringing enjoyment, even if it is in the smallest form of handmade goodies, to as many people as possible.

I hope you'll stop by and visit often!
