About Me

Currently under construction...

Hi, I'm Jen - a 42 year-old married, working (nurse practitioner in hematology), mom of 2 (Mathilde, 8 and Oliver, 5).

I'm returning from a hiatus of a few months, during which I tried to focus on the things that really matter (children, spouse, home) - and decided that crafting and fun mail IS what really matter! At least, in part.

In any event, I miss swapping and mail. So, I'm back! (And, I'm looking for 2-3 new penpals :)

Favorite Crafts

Making messes

Mail Art


mixed media everything

Journals/planners (I use a Midori travelers' notebook)


spinning yarn


would love to learn watercolor painting

cooking (vegetarian)

Stuff I like

New Ideas

Learning about other people

Weird or Quirky

Dark and Strange

Bad advertisements

Foreign ephemera

Nature (mushrooms, insects, plant life)

Gnomes and Vikings

Hand-lettering and Calligraphy

Fish and sea-life


Colors: Green! Earth tones, neutrals, brights in obnoxious combinations. Don't care for: purple, pastels, cornflower blue, mauve.

Green/Simple living, minimalism - the idea at least!

Exercise/Fitness (trying!)

Buddhism, mindfulness, kindness

Stuff I don't like

Attempts at religious conversion

Donald Trump




Glitter and confetti

Comment: Thank you so much for the great layered ATC. It is almost as pretty on the backside as on the front. The tiny stamp is really cute. I also love the extra paper goodies and especially the washi samples. This envie made my day.

Comment: No need for windows for a great PC! Your's is perfect without! Great combination with all the rubber stamps you've used. Love it! I'm right back from my holidays which I spent on the marvelous island of La Palma. Great but too short - as always. :) I hope that you will spent also some great days.

USAFwife rated for April 2017 Journal Swap on May 12, 2017
Comment: Your journal arrived today and thank goodness for tape! The old USPS did a number on the packaging, and I think it's all in tact, but one corner is very worn down. :( Why must the USPS punish us this way ????? I can't wait to read through it. :)

Comment: Hi Jennifer, I certainly do love your ATC, it's gorgeous. I love the look of the oxide colour, not tried them yet. Some projects look lovely when kept simple, as this does. I appreciate the wonderful extras that will be very useful. Thank you! ❤😊

Comment: Terrific vintage stamps, and I loved your envelope! It's so nice to receive fun mail art, especially with rubber stamping. And you were exceedingly thoughtful to have included so many great stamps. The postal-themed washi was the icing on the cake! Thanks for a Great Mail Day!

Wondering- didja get the washi studies ATC I sent your way?

user2637 on Nov 14, 2016:

Thanks for the great blue envie for the tag on MPU forum! Lots of cool stuff in there! :)

Loonstruck on Nov 7, 2016:

Oh my gracious! When you said you had pretty envelope makings, I had no idea. She is going to love these so much. Thank you for aiding in my mission and for making my heart smile!

oblivionspin on Nov 4, 2016:

I would not know, if you hadn't told me that your postcard was a rubbing. I was actually super confused about how you rubbed through cardboard before I caught on to the different layers. The texture is absolutely fantastic. You really should join more postcard swaps!

pkpeace on Oct 18, 2016:

Thank you so much for the beautiful G45 paper! I love to use the back of it because it's always so pretty! I know exactly what you mean about the front! You are so kind and thoughtful, thanks again! Patty xo

oblivionspin on Oct 18, 2016:

^-^ you absolutely made my day with the unexpected box of joy. I'll send you a proper reply but I wanted you to know I got it.
