About Me

My sweet little best friend Kiki crossed the Rainbow bridge on 7/19/2018. She was 18 1/2 years old. She was definitely loved and spoiled. We miss her so much. I like to think she's here with us in spirit. Goodnight sweet kitty.

If you don't receive a swap from me, please contact me. I work hard to get my swaps out on time. I don't click sent until the swap is mailed at the post office and out of my hands. Things get lost sometimes, so please contact me and I will resend if necessary. Also, please send me a message if you feel I should have received your swap. I try to rate the same day I receive swaps, but things happen...

I enjoy mixed media projects. I love swapping ATCs. My newest obsessions are making zines, trying new mixed media techniques, and attempting to use my sewing machine. I would love to take some sewing classes. I also make repurposed jewelry out of dominoes, Scrabble tiles, hardware, and spoons. I absolutely love altered art.

I will love almost anything cat related. In fact, I'm a huge animal lover, so you can't go wrong there.

My favorite color is purple. I also like turquoise, red, orange, lime green, & pink. I adore bright cheerful colors (not neon). Pastel colors are beautiful, but they just aren't "me".

I love anything I can use in my junk journals. I love paper, vintage books, ephemera, etc.

Favorite Television

American Horror Story, Game Of Thrones, American Gods, Outlander, The OA (I'm obsessed with this show), Netflix.

Favorite Books

Some favorite authors are David Sedaris, Neil Gaiman, Stephen King (older stuff), Dean Koontz, Christopher Moore, Carl Hiassen, & Sophie Kinsella. I'm NOT a huge fan of true crime and romance novels (Harlequin, etc).

Favorite Music

I love all kinds of music. 70's, 90's, folk, acoustic, rock. I'm not a fan of mainstream country right now. They all kinda sound the same to me. I like older country and a few recent artists. A few favorites: Mumford and Sons, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Jack White, Miranda Lambert, Brandy Clark, Kacey Musgraves, Todd Snider, John Prine, Steve Earle, Zac Brown Band, P!nk, Old Crow Medicine Show, and so many more that I can't think of right now.

ABCs Of Me

A few of my favorite things:

A-Alice In Wonderland, animals, ATCs, altered art & jewelry

B-Books, birds, bright colors, book pages, buttons

C-Chocolate!, Cardinals, Concerts, coffee, colorful pens, collage, cats (small and large)

D-Dogs, dragons, decorated paper clips, donkeys, anything Dina Wakely, Disney Villains, Distress ink

E-Ephemera, elephants, ebooks

F-Fairies, foxes,

G- Game Of Thrones

H-Harry Potter, Halloween, Handmade envies

I-Inside Out

J-Junk Journals, Jelly Roll Pens, Jane Davenport, Jasmine Green Tea

K-keys, Kindle


M-Mixed media art, Marilyn Monroe, music, Maleficent, mermaids, mindfulness

N-Netflix, Nightmare Before Christmas (especially Sally)


P-Purple, polar bears, painted furniture

R-Reading, rubber stamps, Repurposed items, road trips

S-Stencils, stickers (I don't really need: foam, kids, teacher/reward), snail mail

T-Tim Burton, Totoro


V-Vintage papers, maps, sheet music, and books, van Gogh

W-Washi, Wizard Of Oz, Wicked


Y-Yellow roses

Z-Zebras, Zines


I will love almost any postcard sent to me. I really don't mind ad cards as long as they are interesting, funny, or are related to my likes. Handmade postcards are great too if the swap allows.


I'm not a fan of dirty items, stuff that smells like cigarette smoke or mildew, foam/kids/teacher/reward stickers, black licorice, and floral scents (except jasmine and lilac). Politics and coloring books give me anxiety. Please don't send me anything involving cruelty to people or animals.

Favorite Movies

Anything by Tim Burton, Star Wars, Avengers, Wizard Of Oz, Hairspray, Guardians Of The Galaxy, comedies.

Comment: Thank you for the beautiful tag doll! I love her and will be finding a place for her in my studio. I really love all the colors and amazing texture in your background. Her face is perfect too :) I always struggle with faces and it's definitely something I continue to work on. I think that was one reason I pushed myself to try the swap :) Thank you for sharing your creativity!
Comment: I love the journal page, Its beautiful! Thank you so much! Thanks also for the little sketch book, I'm excited about using it. That was so sweet of you!
Comment: Thank you for the zine. It was really nice. I bet the original is wonderful. I could see the layers and textures you used on each page.
Comment: Loved that you used all different holidays than I did.It is so much fun seeing how each partner illustrates the days. Thanks so much for your great zine,

Comment: Well, I simply adore Lucy Maria! Her lovely blue hair adorned with a pink butterfly--what a look! She's gorgeous and her 'dress' is simply lovely I'm crazy for all the stenciling and textures and that beautiful heart. You chose such amazing fibers as well--love that they are tiny. I'm in love with the pink fiber--the thread with the teeny-tiny tassels. A true work of art! Thank you for a wonderful swap and for those lovely extras!

brooklynbunch rated for 100 Movies on Apr 7, 2019
Comment: Thanks for the list and the snail mail stickers. We had about a dozen of the same films (Bohemian Rhapsody, Sleepless in Seattle, True Grit, West Side Story, etc.) and some I forgot about and didn't include (Trading Places, Willy Wonka). Also like the Marvin Gaye stamp--they never have any cool ones at the local post office. Susan (brooklynbunch)

Comment: Hi Jen :-) I love, love, love the ICAD you sent. The bright colors are so spring-like, and because it's raised, I could actually put a die cut flower in it, like the one you sent as an extra! Thank you also for the extras... so pretty! I want to invest in those squiggle dies someday. THANK YOU!

Comment: What an adorable, artsy zine! I love it! I like your "on a stick" day. The MN State Fair is FAMOUS for putting anything you can eat on a stick. 3 of them were picked as best in America: tater tot hot dish on a stick (that is so Minnesotan in so many ways), giant egg rolls on a stick, and fried fruit on a stick. Not to mention the guiltiest pleasure anyone will EVER eat, a deep-fried Snickers on a stick! The weirdos - mac-n-cheese on a stick, mango with chili and lime on a stick, alligator sausage on a stick, teriyaki ostrich on a stick... basically, in MN, we take a strange amount of pride in shoving a stick up in basically any food and eating it - but only at the State Fair. Sorry, bit of a tangent, anyway, thanks for a fab zine! See you in April!

Comment: Thanks for the great list. I didn't recognize the John Prine song until I played it. Though none of yours were on my list, all the others would certainly be in my top 100.
