Jens Custom Crafts offers unique guinea pig and other small animal products custom made to your liking. www.jenscustomcrafts.com

Jens Custom Crafts LLC is located in Michigan and run by myself, Jenny, and my husband Jason.

All items are coming from a smoke-free home.

Each month Jens Custom Crafts Features a specific small animal rescue and 10% of sales that month are donated to the rescue. Read all about it here http://www.jenscustomcrafts.com/rescue-donation-program.html

Please feel free to suggest your favorite rescue to be added to the list.

The rescue donation program has been a huge success and I am so happy to help out those that work so hard to save animals.

I am also happy to offer a 25% discount to recognized rescues as well as free shipping. This also applies to customers purchasing items for a rescue.

Watch my thread frequently for new sales!

April is all about Atlanta Metro Guinea Pig rescue. 10% of all purchases will go to them at the end of the month!

To kick off sales this month, I am offering buy any 2 items and get a 3rd item of equal or lesser value for free!

Oh my goodness, Vince is adorable! He looks like he is sporting some longer locks :) Is he a long haired pig?

Awe he is adorable! I do have a question. If I get the cage liners would I also need to put towels underneath them? Or is one cage liner all that is needed? Also, Would I need to wash it several times to get the fleece to "wick" I currently use care-fresh but am considering changing.

He is super cute. Yes, he is a silkie!

Thanks furpiggie!

I personally don't put any towels under my liners. I change mine out every 4-5 days and that seems to work best for me.

Within the next few weeks, I plan to start publicly offering a new type of cage liners, that consist of fleece, batting, Zorb http://www.wazoodle.com/cgi-bin/catstore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=4001007, and then Procare http://www.wazoodle.com/cgi-bin/catstore.cgi?user_action=detail&catalogno=4000000 .

I personally like this new type better, but they will be a little more expensive. I haven't purchased a large enough amount of the zorb and procare yet to offer them on my website, but if anyone here is interested I would be happy to make their liners this way.

Prices will be as follows:

2x1 liners : $24.00
2x2 liners : $45.00
2x3 liners : $60.00
2x4 liners : $80.00

Yes, that is a 2x4 liner! I currently do not offer 2x4 with my current cage liners as I use actual towels to make them and there is too much piecing together to make a 2x4.

Cage liners are included in the buy 2 get 1 free of equal or lesser value sale for April!

This is Dexter, Vince's brother!

We had the 3rd brother as well, but sadly he passed away a few months ago. They were posted on craigslist shortly after I adopted my first two piggies. I originally was going to just adopt Dexter, but then decided to take Dexter and James. The woman that had them emailed me a few days later and said the 3rd brother (Vince) was returned, so of course I had to go get him also!

RIP James

Thanks. I am not a sewer in any way shape or form! Therefore, I will probably want to order some already made. Seems to be the easiest method.

I was only teasing on the contest :) Me and Eric were talking about doing one last week. I should wait to do mine anyhow, I've been thinking of something to do in Shakes memory, maybe it will be that and Rainbow Bridge theme. More pressing matters to deal with first.

Nice sales btw!

I didn't get a chance to comment on the last thread. OCCH would like to thank you so very much for the donation. As we all know, every single penny counts. The money will certainly go to good use. On behalf of OCCH, the volunteers, and the piggies....THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

Thanks DaCourt and everyone!

I will figure out my totals and get that over to you guys later today :-) I also want to send some beds and stuff. What would you guys be most interested in? Could someone also PM me an address to mail the beds to?

You guys are more than welcome. Thank you that all you do!

I don't have many items here yet, but I have an Artfire.com store with pre-made items ready to ship out. Again, not too many different things on there yet, as I still have many orders to sew, but check back often for new items added!

Here is the link http://www.artfire.com/users/JensCustomCrafts

Here are a few things that are on there for sale

DaCourt, if it helps I'm expecting an order from Jen anyway and I'd be happy to hang onto the stuff for the shelter until I can trade it with Susan or other volunteers or drop it off at an event. (If it's easier for her to ship my stuff and the OCCH the stuff all at once.)

Aww, love the pictures Laura! You'll have to email me a few over to submit for the contest :-) I need more entries!

Sus provided me with an address jedifreac, so it's no problem. Your order will be done soon, and it may take a few weeks for the donations so I don't want to make you wait any longer :-)

Yes 3popcornpiggies! Those are the only fancy pigs i've ever had, sometime I hope to find a teddy needing a home :-) I'm most partial to Aby's.

Jedifreac! These are on their way today. I think this is by far the coolest set we have made. Jason (my husband) gets all the credit for putting these together. He figured out which pieces should be where and designed them all!

For those that don't know, Jedifreac sourced out a sheet set and fleece blankets and sent the materials to me to make this awesome set up for her guinea pig cage!
