About Me

Updated: 10/10/2018

As of September 2018, I’m back in school to work on my Graphic Design degree! I’m super excited, but this also means I won’t be participating in very many swaps, maybe quick ones if I have the time. I managed to make some awesome pen pals here so I will try and keep up with them first, hope to be swapping again soon!

Greetings! I'm Jen, 31 years old, happily married and have a one year old son, living in the Bay Area since 2015, originally from Austin, Texas, born and raised.

I've just started pen palling, postcrossing, and now swap-botting(?)! Doing my part to revive snail mail.

Hobbies

I started my lettering journey in March 2017 shortly after my son was born, and I became a stay at home mom. For the most part of the year I stuck to lettering with markers and pens.

Now I am venturing into watercolor painting, and as of 4/16/2018 I'm learning Copperplate Calligraphy with a dip pen, wish me luck lol (I'm left handed so the struggle is real). I have also begun stamping and embossing, and just learning how to apply different forms and techniques into my artwork.

I started playing the piano when I was 6 years old and at 12 I started playing the organ for my church. I love singing in my church choir and learning how to play different musical instruments, in middle school I played the french horn and over the years I've been on and off learning to play the guitar. I have a pretty eclectic taste in music, the only exception would be “screamo.”

My mother taught me to sew and crochet when I was young, and in 2017 I started learning how to knit. Though I find these hobbies fascinating, I've never really finished a project other than making throw pillows and curtains, but I love the idea of decorating my home with home-made decor :)

I'm resolving to read more, my favorite author is Dan Brown. (The Davinci Code, Angels & Demons, The Lost Symbol, Inferno) I have his newest book, Origin.

I used to indulge myself in video games! XBOX360, WII, and sometimes PC. I absolutely love The Elder Scrolls games (Oblivion, Skyrim), Final Fantasty XIII, any Nintendo games, Sims 3 and League of Legends to name a few. That is the only MMO I'll play, I'm more of an anti-social RPG gamer haha. Now that I have a toddler, I stick to iPad games, restaurant/hotel simulators, This War of Mine, puzzles.

Currently, I am having a blast on swap-bot and learning new paper crafts, and writing to my penpals.

Favorite Crafts

Lettering has opened plenty of doors to keep me busy for a while. As I mentioned above, I am currently learning Copperplate Calligraphy. I think a list is just easier so here goes:

  • Lettering/Calligraphy
  • Painting (Watercolor for now)
  • Stamping/Embossing
  • Handmade Envelopes/Mail Art
  • Handmade cards, postcards, and now flipbooks
  • Bullet Journaling
  • DIY home decorations
  • Scrapbooking

I have an interest in, but haven't tried:

  • Woodburning
  • Foiling
  • Homecoming Mums (I think this is just a Texas thing haha)
  • ATCs
  • Sculpting
  • Decoupage
  • Bookbinding

I post my lettering practice and other crafts on instagram, if you'd like to see my progress and other inspirations, please follow me: MarblexJam

Comment: Thank you very much for the pretty decorated envie and your letter. I am a bit disappointed. The swap description said that it has to be handwritten. We had over two weeks time to write a letter :/ The host gave you a 5, so I will give you a 5 aswell, but I really can't give you a heart. Sorry :(
Response: Understood, I didn’t have access to a copier and I was traveling during the time. I just reread the swap clarification and realized I misunderstood printed for typed, my apologies for the mistake, thank you for the 5!

Song Lyrics #3 Electronic Mail Deadline: May 1, 2018 ID: astrodogg

Hola! I'm your partner for this swap! My song is in Spanish, so I've added on a translation of what the lyrics mean. I hope you like it. Here is also a link to the song on YouTube if you wanna take a listen:

Thanks!

Artist: Xavi the Destroyer ft. Ñengo Flow and J. Alvarez Song: Caminando por la Calle

Voy caminando por la calle recordando de mi padre y el consejo que un día me dio Que la humildad es lo que vale que todo somos iguale, que perfecto solamente es Dios

Translation:

I'm walking down the street remembering my father and the advice he gave me one day That humility is what counts That we are all the same, that only God is perfect

Song Lyrics #3 from annim

This is Robbie Williams's song "Love my life" and I sing it to my daughter. <3

I cannot promise there won't be sadness. I wish I could take it from you. But you'll find the courage to face the madness, And sing it because it's true.

I love my life. I am powerful, I am beautiful, I am free. I love my life. I am wonderful, I am magical, I am me. I love my life.

Find the others with hearts like yours. Run far, run free. I'm with you.

Song Lyrics #3 Electronic I'll paint the picture, let me set the scene I know, I'm all for people following their dreams Just re-remember life is more than fittin' in your jeans It's love and understanding, positivity
