About Jennie Mae
Hello! My name is Jennie Mae.
I'm a big-eyed bird with a quick wit, sharp tongue and the capacity to care far more than what is necessary. I'm a passionate creature with an at-times overwhelming personality, and for that I offer no apologies.
Hailing from the still-wild west that is Wyoming where I never quite fit in [thank god], I found solace in the Internet, comic books and video games. Having grown up with two older brothers, the ribbons and curls of little-girldom were almost immediately replaced with bugs, gore, NES and my oldest brother's comic collection. When it comes to being a girl's girl, I never really stood a chance.
As I grew older, art and cooking became my life. As I grew older even still, I found that the more I learned about these things, the more I realized that I really wanted to share all of the fun, useful things that I learn along the way.
And thus, Little Moth was born.
The name "Little Moth" directly represents the parts of me that I'm most fond of. Erratic, glistening, and difficult to hold on to, my life is a whirlwind of in-the-moment passions and living life based on personal morality and the constant human struggle that is happiness VS contentment. I don't have a very specific plan in life, and I intend to keep it that way.
I spend most of my days flittering around my house in beautiful Colorado, finding messes to make and delivering periodic smooches and snacks to my three cats and one glorious boyfriend. He's way cooler than me, which is hard to believe, but totally true.
I believe in maintaining a body-positive attitude, openly discussing mental health with absolutely zero shame, and swearing like a sailor. I'm agnostic, often times offensive and very rarely sorry... but don't let that scare you away. I'm also really good at telling stories, making yummy food and loving those around me with all of my heart. Let's hang out!
Let's be honest here... I'm super weird. From my dead thing collection to my obsession with serial killers, I have a good few interests that most people would describe as a bit more than interesting.
I'm also fortunate enough to lead a very nomadic life, travelling around the country for both work and play.
I've been working comic conventions since 2010, and am absolutely in love with the often times bizarre lifestyle that entails.

I live to make beautiful things. Creepy ones too, of course. You can look at them here if you want!
I FUCKING LOVE FOOD HOLY SHIT.
Seriously. There are very few things in this world that I love as much as I love food. Cooking it, eating it, looking at it, I don't give a shit... I want to be a part of it.
I've been working in and out of professional kitchens since I was 14, and have picked up so many wonderful techniques that make cooking easy and fun. I believe that EVERYONE can cook, and should!
I pride myself on my fresh, healthy, often times locally-sourced dishes that are shockingly easy, and I'd love to share them with you!
And don't you worry... I cook plenty of greasy, unhealthy, way-too-tasty dishes, too.

Do It Your Goddamn Self.
I fancy myself a handier man than some, and am always experimenting and tinkering with a million things around the house. Sometimes I'm really great at them... sometimes not so great. I promise to share both so you can either learn something, or have a chuckle at my expense.
Either way, do it over at my DIYGS section!
