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: I got your journal this morning. Thanks so much. I love your artistic style! A two hour daily commute?!!! Ohmygosh! Plus everything else... 😳 I remember those Little League days with our 5 kids. 💖🤪
Comment: Hi Jennifer! What a treat to get something from an old friend! (as in long-time . . . not 'old' ;+) Your library pocket is . . . in a word . . . magical. How do I love it? Let me count the ways: the color palette, the embellished clippie, the ziggity-zaggity stitching, and every other bit of it. One of my favs is the little bug clip on the back--so creative! Thank you for your lovely note. I actually cut out your collage on the front of the envie; it was too pretty to go into the bin. So nice to swap together again!

Comment: Wow! This is amazing! I love the colors and theme. Butterflies are amazing. I also love how you took the butterflies and stapled two together to create a 3d effect! I will be stealing that idea! Thank you for the tags too, im loving tags right now. They are so useful! Thank you for taking so much time for me!
Comment: Smart going with the vintage theme, it is one of the most popular. I really liked the way you packaged everything together, so cute and clever.
Comment: Jennifer, the paper clip banners you made for me are so lovely...and of course anything with a bird theme makes me very happy! Love all the details on each of them. They are very vintage looking. Love the way you displayed them on the book pages (thank you). Enjoyed your decorated envelope. Very nice swap! Thank you.

🤣 I was just moseying through your profile and had to tell you that your 'dislikes' gave me a good chuckle. You're my kind of people. Thanks for putting a grin on my face!

Hi Jen thank u so much for this beautiful art journal!!! I cried! I have never gotten emotional over a swap before but I really wanted one of these journals and have not had the time to make one myself and wow you did such a beautiful and creative job, I have literally been showing EVERYONE I come in contact with lol!! Thank you for putting such love into this gift for me, you are amazing.

Hello! Jen. Just wandering through your profile to do a profile check for the Group: Artisan ATCs. You have been swapping here for 6 years! That is so awesome! I like that you spin yarn. My Aunt used to weave (she's in England). I love your children's names! I use art/crafts as my relaxation.. It is definitely an important part of my life! Oh, Welcome to the group! We are a wonderful and talented craft collective... I look forward to swapping with you! :-)

what a wonderful and generous-hearted thing you've done, by "stepping in" to replace a swapper who did not, or would not fulfill the requiremeng of the swap! I wish for you much happiness and joy this holiday season, and I hope you will make lots of wonderful swapping friends - thank you again!
