So excited that my baby daughter now has her own RBG board book, thanks to a generous gift from my great aunt! It’s the perfect addition to our existing collection of my own books, RBG action figure (another generous gift from a friend), Notorious RBG tee shirt 🤣 and of course our RBG peg dolls! Swipe for a closeup of the pegs and/or check my recent posts 🥰🥰 . . .✨✨ I recently sent a pair of RBG peg dolls — one lace collar, one dissent collar — to the real RBG along with a personal letter. As a female attorney myself she has been incredibly inspiring. I hope they made her smile ☺️✨✨. . . . #jensprettypegs #RBG #dissent #idissent #dissentcollar #custompegdolls #pegdolls #ruthbaderginsburg #strongwomen #rolemodels #notoriousrbg #womenlawyers #handmadegifts #rbg4life #ilookuptoher #womensupportingwomen #pegdollportrait #feministgifts #thatnewbooksmell #womenempowerment #feministicon #longisland #womenwholead #feministart #supportsmallbusiness #lawyerswhopaint #rbgpegdoll #longislandmoms #longislandlife #etsysellersofinstagram

“I’m sometimes asked when will there be enough [women on the Supreme Court.] And I say ‘When there are nine.’” - Ruth Bader Ginsburg. . . . I absolutely love the demand for RBG dolls 🥰 (I recently sent a pair — one lace collar, one dissent collar — to the real RBG along with a personal letter. As a female attorney myself she has been incredibly inspiring. I hope they made her smile ☺️) I will be painting another group soon - DM or visit my Etsy shop to get on the list. . . . . . #jensprettypegs #RBG #RBGArmy #dissent #dissentcollar #custompegdolls #pegdolls #ruthbaderginsburg #strongwomen #rolemodels #notoriousrbg #womenlawyers #handmadegifts #famousquotes #strongwomenquotes #womensupportingwomen #pegdollportrait #feministgifts #womenempowerment #feministicon #artistsoninstagram #womenwholead #feministart #supportsmallbusiness #lawyerswhopaint #rbgpegdoll #longislandmoms #newyorkers #madebylongisland #etsysellersofinstagram

For my 100th (!!) Instagram post I think it’s fitting to share the photo that started it all — the photo of a set of family dolls I painted of my own family and shared on Facebook that led to a flurry of interest and which sparked the creation of this new peg doll adventure. At the time I painted these dolls, a new business was not remotely on my radar. As discussed in more detail in an earlier post (scroll back to the photo of me with a painting of Billy Wilder for that one), I was a NYC biglaw litigator for 9 years but left in 2017 to take time off to spend more time with my family. The thought of adding competing obligations onto my plate (especially with 2 young boys and a new baby) was not something I was looking for or thought I would consider. But, in an effort to find small bits of time for myself and my own heavily neglected interests (ex: painting!!) I painted these dolls one afternoon, along with 2 babywearing dolls (of myself in my favorite carriers) and a set of Harry Potter dolls for my son. Things quickly spiraled from there, and I jumped at the opportunity. 2 months later, here we are! I am still learning and growing and trying to juggle the business side with fulfilling orders that I am grateful continue to flow in. A little over a month ago, at the insistence of my younger sister, I joined Instagram (at 34, I was one of those Facebook-only dinosaurs) and a few weeks ago Etsy. I’d like to think my photos (as well as my dolls) have since improved a bit, but these dolls (and this photo) have so much sentimental value for me that I had to share them regardless. I don’t know what will come of this little business but right now it makes me so incredibly happy. Thank you all for your support 🥰. . . #jensprettypegs #thankful #newbusiness #custompegdolls #pegdolls #pegdollfamily #personalizedpegdolls #pegpeople #waldorf #waldorftoys #woodentoys #handmadetoys #handmadegifts #lawyerswhopaint #longislandmoms #longislandhandmade #openendedplay #openendedtoys #learningthroughplay #heirloomdolls #inclusivetoys #longisland #100thpost #pegdollfamilyportrait #etsysellersofinstagram #supportsmallbusiness #sparkjoy #dowhatyoulove #meetthemaker #originstory

We have a set of Melissa&Doug architectural wood blocks — my son is playing with them right now and I started wondering... would it be crazy to paint them? Or maybe paint some of them? I am all about color and I have the supplies needed to paint and seal them safely... we love our rainbow @grimmswoodentoys blocks... what do you think? ☺️🌈. . . . . #jensprettypegs #pegdolls #custompegdolls #imaginativeplay #imaginativetoys #handpaintedtoys #woodentoys #artistsofinstagram #openendedplay #openendedtoys #imagination #learningthroughplay #learningthroughplaying #customized #handmadegifts #etsysellersofinstagram #handmadewithlove #lawyerswhopaint #waldorf #grimmsrainbow #grimmswoodentoys #waldorfhomeschool #natural #inclusivetoys #simplicityparenting #melissaanddoug #longislandmoms #handmadelongisland #montessoriathome #adviceneeded

Rainbow Waldorf-style peg dolls are amazing for open-ended imaginative play! They can be customized to match whatever color scheme you would like and are available with natural wood heads or multicultural skin tones! (these were painted to match our beloved Grimms large stacked pyramid!). . .

Went to the art store with my son to get some new supplies for us both!!! 😁😁😁 You could tell it has been a while though because not only has my old favorite art store closed (RIP Pearl Art 😭), but the packaging on my go-to paint has completely changed as well 🤦‍♀️ even so, I am glad to be back at it! I am totally inspired with a lot of new ideas (as is my son, who came home with new canvases for some #harrypotter paintings!) . . . . . . #jensprettypegs #pegdolls #custompegdolls #pegdollpainter #newartsupplies #artsupplies #pegdollfamily #letthempaint #momswhopaint #lawyerswhopaint #wahm #personalizedpegdolls #woodentoys #handmadetoys #handmadegifts #longislandmoms #lovetopaint #longislandhandmade #rbg #inclusivetoys #longisland #handpainteddolls #etsysellersofinstagram #shoplongisland #blickartmaterials #sparkjoy #dowhatyoulove #newbrushes #newpaints

I have had a few people ask me recently about the 2 inch “regular size” bell-shape pegs (used for RBGs, four seasons dolls, fairies, bunnies, pastel waldorf style dolls and most women in family sets) as compared with the 3.5 inch “jumbo size” bell-shape pegs (used for bridal and engagement dolls, woodland fairies for babies, extra-detailed babywearing dolls and the women in some family sets). I snapped this picture of some of the dolls in my Etsy shop to show them side by side — the second picture is a custom family I painted recently that also uses these two sizes. As always, don’t hesitate to comment or message me with any questions!. . . . . #jensprettypegs #woodentoys #waldorftoys #custompegdolls #pegdolls #diversityisbeautiful #handmadewithlove #handmadetoys #lawyerswhopaint #openendedplay #inclusivetoys #multiculturaltoys #woodtoys #longislandmoms #handmadelongisland #minimalistmom #diversitymatters #naturaltoys #openendedtoys #imaginativeplay #allskintypes #etsysellersofinstagram #diversityandinclusion #bespokediversedolls #dollsofallcolours #simplicityparenting #rbg #ilovecolor #colorfultoys #comparisonpic

What’s your favorite season? I am 100% a summer girl, although spring is nice too.

Thank you to @miscarriage_loveandsupport for the follow and for including my dolls in your stories yesterday♥️♥️♥️. These particular dolls are one of my favorites and were painted for an extra special family who I really enjoyed getting to know. They lost their beautiful daughter Gweneth a few years ago but she continues to be an important part of the family and is always remembered. I am honored to have had the chance to paint something for this beautiful family in a way that includes every member. 🌈👼🐻 @christie7171 . . For those who may not be aware, I include angel babies/children (for free) with any family doll order upon request. I have had three heartbreaking miscarriages myself and it is important to me, if I am creating a family product, to offer a way to include the entire family. ♥️♥️♥️ . . . . #jensprettypegs #custompegdolls #handpainted #waldorftoys #pegdolls #handmadegifts #pegdollfamily #handmadetoys #lawyerswhopaint #custompegdolls #familyof5 #rainbowbaby #pregnancylosssupport #miscarriage #childloss #beautifulfamily #miscarriageawareness #nycmoms #miscarriagesupport #pegfamily #angelbaby #angel #longislandmoms #handmadelongisland #longisland #miscarriage #etsysellersofinstagram #longislandhandmade #iam1in4 #pregnancyafterlosssupport

Painting all of these details is time consuming (especially the dissent collars! 🤪) so it takes a while to complete a new group of RBGs but I absolutely love it and it’s so much fun to see them all come to life!

I just loved these colors so much that I painted two sets of simple Waldorf-style rainbow pegs in fun spring pastels!

Two months in to this unexpected new business adventure and it’s easy to focus on the things I still need to work on (next on my agenda are printed cards and finalizing new packaging) but I am trying to remind myself that I have come a long way in these two short months and Rome wasn’t built in a day. Grateful for all of my incredible customers and that I continue to have a steady stream of orders to work on. The rest will come. I am enough. You, too, are enough. ♥️. . . . . . . #jensprettypegs #youareenough #newtoetsy #inspirationalquotes #empoweringwords #imperfectlyperfect #womenempowerment #fridayinspiration #pegdolls #newbusiness #custompegdolls #pegdollfamily #pegdollpainters #etsysellersofinstagram #woodentoys #naturaltoys #lawyerswhopaint #longislandmoms #longislandhandmade #inclusivetoys #longisland #pegdollfamilyportrait #handpainteddolls #shoplongisland #sparkjoy #dowhatyoulove #dowhatmakesyouhappy #selfcare #youareloved #enjoytheprocess

#tbt to a few of the first peg dolls I painted (predating my business!)... Harry Potter dolls for my 7yo son! We are an absolutely Harry-obsessed family and not only has my son dressed as Harry for Halloween the past 3 years but we are also the reigning champs for the past 2 years at our local HP trivia night sunset cruise... which is for adults! (Swipe for a photo of us at this year’s trivia night! We go in costume!) ✨✨ If you’re also a Harry fan, what house would you be in?

These turquoise and purple jumbo woodland fairies were a custom order for a sweet baby girl (I saw a photo, trust me she is adorable! 🥰) ... but I didn’t realize until this morning that they were also a perfect match for my current fav baby carrier.

I have been meaning to post an introduction and this picture showed up in my Facebook timehop today — 12 years ago — so it feels like the right time for some backstory. . . .This photo is of me, as a first year law student, at the Graduate Student Art Exhibit... showing a painting I did in high school. Let me backtrack and explain... . . .My name is Jen — I’m a mom of three young kids and live on Long Island, a suburb of NYC. After 9 years working as a commercial litigator at a big NYC law firm, I left my job mid-2017 to take some time off and spend more time with my family. Art has always been my passion, but my young children and demanding job always took priority and I rarely made time for it. In many ways, staying home and adding another new baby into the mix in April made it even harder to find time for myself and my own interests, because as a type-A perfectionist I felt (self-imposed) pressure to be the perfect mom and keep a perfect home in order to justify having left my big job. . . .Motherhood is beautiful but it’s also messy and hard. Physically, emotionally and mentally. You gain a beautiful new life but it’s also common to feel like you have lost your old self. . . .I woke up one morning after my third baby and realized I had zero self-care and always put myself and my needs last. Even my “me time” was really for my family and household (when the kids were finally asleep I would stay up late jumping from task to task and even when I finally found a chance to read I was reading books on decluttering and gentle sleep training and not for pleasure). I decided that I could and should set aside at least 5 minutes every day to do something completely for the old me. In my case that meant art — something I had always loved but moved to the bottom of my priority list as I navigated law school, and took off the list entirely as I juggled a big firm job and motherhood due to what I perceived as a lack of time. . (Continued in comments)

Last week I sent the real RBG a pair of my RBG dolls along with a personal letter (as a female attorney myself, she is particularly inspiring).

These two little RBG dolls are finally on their way to the real RBG!! I have wanted to send one to her for weeks, ever since I painted my first doll in her likeness, but as a perfectionist with anxiety I got a bit overwhelmed with drafting the perfect accompanying letter. In some ways it was actually for the best, as, in the intervening weeks, I came up with a new dissent collar design (I am sending her a pair of both collars) but one mantra I am trying to live by in the new year is “done is better than perfect.” This weekend I finally drafted a heartfelt and personal letter (as a female attorney myself she is particularly inspiring) and finalized it last night (first typed as a business letter but it didn’t feel right so I copied it into a handwritten card). Travel safe little RBGs... I hope you find her feeling well and recovering fully and put a smile on her face. Is it too much to hope for a reply? ☺️. . . . #jensprettypegs #RBG #dissent #dissentcollar #custompegdolls #ruthbaderginsburg #notoriousrbg #pegdolls #handmadegifts #handpaintedgifts #strongwomen #rolemodels #notoriousrbg #womenlawyers #womenempowerment #woodentoys #bespoke #shoplongisland #attorneys #supremecourt #supportsmallbusiness #lawyerswhopaint #rbgpegdoll #longislandmoms #inclusivetoys #handmadelongisland #madebylongisland #anxiety #livingwithanxiety #doneisbetterthanperfect #anxietyisreal

Not there yet but at 478 it’s within sight! Not too shabby for a new business unexpectedly started less than 2 months ago and a jump to Instagram exactly one month ago today ☺️. Thank you all for your support — Etsy launch will probably be delayed another day or two because I’ll be watching RENT live tonight but I am almost done with a number of new dolls I can’t wait to share ♥️♥️♥️. . Update! 2 days later I am now actually at 500.. thank you thank you thank you! 🥰. . . . . . #jensprettypegs #thankful #gratitude #newbusiness #custompegdolls #pegdolls #pegdollfamily #personalizedpegdolls #pegdoll #pegpeople #waldorf #waldorftoys #woodentoys #handmadetoys #handmadegifts #lawyerswhopaint #longislandmoms #longislandhandmade #rbg #inclusivetoys #handmadewithlove #longisland #500followers #pegdollfamilyportrait #handpainteddolls #supportsmallbusiness #sparkjoy #dowhatyoulove #rentlive

How adorable are these engagement dolls? 💍 I stumbled across these teeny rhinestones and knew they would be perfect for a diamond ring ☺️ I don’t usually paint mouths on my dolls to keep with the open-ended Waldorf style, but the photo reference for these dolls (of the couple moments after getting engaged) had such big beautiful smiles and just radiated happiness — that the family member purchasing these agreed that this set needed to have smiles too 😁🥰. (Check my earlier posts for an in-progress shot of this set!) . . . #jensprettypegs #woodendolls #pegdolls #handmadewithlove #lawyerswhopaint #handmadelongisland #minimalistmom #pegdollfamily #handmadeisbetter #rainbowpegdolls #simplicityparenting #custompegdolls #ilovecolor #customgifts #customweddinggift #bespoke #shoplongisland #engagementpegdolls #pegpeople #pegdollportrait #engagementgifts #newlyengaged #woodenpegdolls #longislandwedding #engagementdolls #engagementring #longisland #oneofakind #radiatinghappiness #wereengaged

Here’s the answer to my earlier hide and find challenge! Were you able to spot the camouflaged peg doll? ☺️ took my boys a bit of time to find it but then they loved it.. and so did baby sis. If you rotate it, the all-black and all-ivory views create a bunch of other camouflage options too ☺️. I went with the jumbo size (aka baby-safe size) because I expect this doll to continuously be hidden all over the kitchen and potentially the rest of the house... and baby girl, who specializes in trying to sneakily eat tiny bits of dirt, feathers and fuzz, is likely to be the most frequent finder 🤦‍♀️ . . . . #jensprettypegs #bespoke #woodentoys #waldorftoys #pegdolls #dolls #handmadegifts #waldorf #handmadewithlove #handmadetoys #lawyerswhopaint #rainbowpegdolls #inclusivetoys #multiculturaltoys #giftsforkids #giftsforbabies #woodtoys #longislandmoms #handmadelongisland #longislandhandmade #minimalistmom #madebylongisland #naturaltoys #reversible #handmadeisbetter #camouflage #hideandfind #hideandseek #canyoufindit #foundit

While I was packaging up the latest round of RBGs to ship out I was thinking about what makes these dolls so special. Not only is RBG a total badass, but each doll is lovingly handpainted (by me!). I have tentatively decided to start signing and dating the bottoms of all of my dolls, beginning with these RBGs, so you can look back at them for years to come and remember how and when they were made. Thoughts?. . . . . Taking orders for the next batch of RBG dolls (which will include both lace collar and dissent collar dolls).

Hey everyone! I stumbled across this graphic today and it really resonated. Thank you so much for all of your support (all kinds!) — not just purchasing dolls but also mentioning my new venture to others, sharing photos, commenting, and even liking my posts on Facebook and Instagram. If you told me 2 months ago that I would be starting up an art business I would have told you that you were crazy. But, life takes unexpected turns and here I am! Whether my little business continues to grow or becomes a hobby/side gig, I am so happy to be painting again, connecting with people and adding a little extra joy and beauty to people’s lives ♥️♥️. . . .

I usually try to avoid character dolls and stick to personalized dolls and my own unique designs but my boys are recently obsessed with the French cartoon “Miraculous” and its heroes Ladybug and Cat Noir. This weekend we cobbled together costumes using items we found around the house - masks and some black and red polka-dot fabric from an old pirate costume - and this morning I quickly whipped up a few dolls. My 4 year old son played with them for hours! ☺️ Is anyone else familiar with that show? It’s on Netflix.... . .

Experimenting with some new designs to coordinate with the woodland fairies I posted yesterday. I don’t think the knit hat really goes, but when I asked my 4 year old son this morning it was his favorite so I will be doing a separate set of hat dolls too. Still debating whether to go with plain hair or add leaf crowns... thoughts? I am leaning toward olive leaf crowns... . .

My 4 year old son came home from preschool this week and referred to something as a “boy color” — I swiftly reminded him that all colors are for everyone, and that my own favorite color is blue. This morning when I showed him these jumbo woodland fairies that I painted for his baby sister, I asked if he was wondering why I did blue and not pink. I was so happy when he smiled and told me that blue is for everyone! 💙💙💙 . . .

Just glazed my first set of dissent collar RBGs! 😍. . I am happy to say I have been selling out of RBGs as fast as I can paint them and most people have been placing orders for multiples so I am going to keep an ongoing RBG list to help me keep up with demand and pace them with my other orders. If you are interested in one or more RBGs, comment here or message me with the number you want and which style (the white lace - her fav! - or the dissent collar). You can pay me once your dolls are ready. (Those of you who already commented on my other posts are already on my list and your dolls were included in this batch. I will DM you). If you have a deadline let me know and I’ll do my best to meet it. Join my VIP group on Facebook (Jen’s Pretty Pegs VIP Group) to get sneak peeks and access to special offerings and behind the scenes shots. . Pricing is $35 for one, $65 for a set of both collars. Shipping is $8 for priority, $4 for first class and local pickup is also available. . . I truly appreciate all of your support and absolutely love the demand for RBGs ♥️♥️♥️. (I am sending a pair to the real RBG as soon as I can draft an appropriate accompanying letter! As a female attorney myself she has been incredibly inspiring 😍) . . #jensprettypegs #RBG #RBGArmy #dissent #dissentcollar #custompegdolls #ruthbaderginsburg #pegdolls #handmade #handpainted #strongwomen #rolemodels #notoriousrbg #womenlawyers #handmadegifts #womenempowerment #woodentoys #feministicon #artistsoninstagram #newtoinstagram #feministart #supremecourt #supportsmallbusiness #lawyerswhopaint #rbgpegdoll #details #closeup #longislandmoms #handmadelongisland #madebylongisland

Ok, now that we’re out of the woods I’ll admit I was pretty worried about these little guys. They shipped out Friday and Priority tracking said they were delivered Saturday... except they weren’t. And they didn’t come Monday or this afternoon either. Many calls to multiple post offices later they finally arrived tonight. *phew* I was preparing to re-paint them but I was pretty attached to them and I am glad they arrived safe and sound, even if a bit tardy. (And they can be given as a gift this weekend, right on schedule) ♥️♥️. . . .

Throwback to the first set of peg dolls I painted! Before painting dolls as a business was ever on my radar, I painted this set of rainbow dolls for my 4 year old son, to match his amazing blocks from @grimms! Painting my own peg dolls allowed me a greater variation in size, color and skin tone and my son *loves* them. I have been on a quest to simplify, minimize, and focus on natural toys that foster open ended imaginative play and peg dolls are perfect for that. These dolls have been uncles, parents, teachers, firefighters, police officers, and so many other things. A 4 year old’s imagination is limitless! ✨. . . .

These extra special dolls were delivered today! 🌈♥️ **For those who may not be aware, I include angel babies/children (for free) with any family doll order upon request. I have had three heartbreaking miscarriages myself and it is important to me, if I am creating a family product, to offer a way to include the entire family. ♥️♥️♥️. . . .

Playtime! ☺️ Before I ever started painting custom family peg dolls I painted peg dolls for my son to play with! My four seasons dolls are one of his favorites. They pair nicely with his favorite rainbow blocks and they have *magical* powers ✨✨ . . #jensprettypegs #custompegdolls #custom #handmade #handpainted #wood #art #artistsofinstagram #dolls #pegdolls #handmadegifts #handmadewithlove #details #oneofakind #supportsmallbusiness #artist #woodtoys #lawyerswhopaint #fourseasons #winter #spring #summer #fall #rainbow #waldorf #giftsforeveryone #imaginativeplay #magicalpowers #grimmswoodentoys #inclusivetoys

Sooooo glad to read that RBG’s recovery is “on track” and there is no cancer remaining! ♥️ I painted a new batch of RBG dolls last weekend to fill some pending orders and keep a few on hand for Etsy but they all sold before I could put together a listing ☺️ I will be painting another batch, but this time I plan to do a few with her dissent collar. 😁 I also saved one to send to the real RBG as soon as I can draft an appropriate accompanying letter — as a female attorney myself she has been and continues to be an incredible inspiration ♥️♥️♥️. . #jensprettypegs #RBG #RBGArmy #dissentcollar #ruthbaderginsburg #scotus #pegdolls #handmade #handpainted #art #strongwomen #rolemodels #notoriousrbg #womenlawyers #custom #gifts #handmadegifts #womenempowerment #woodentoys #wood #artistsoninstagram #newtoinstagram #attorneys #justice #supremecourt #supportsmallbusiness #lawyerswhopaint
