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: My lucky day to get not one but two swaps from you! Your index card is awesome! I like it better than the sample we worked from - I had to use more than one die cut on mine as well because I did not have one as large as the one she used. Love your background and the colors you used. Please be my partner again!! Thank you for another great swap.
Comment: Oh Jennifer! This mini album is just amazing! I cannot believe all the wonderful goodies you tucked inside it that all are perfectly coordinated . You have some great die cuts too - the black mandala, the black border, love the black beetle, the vintage papers, all the awesome TH Halloween goodies. It truly is so special! Thank you so much!!

🀣 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!
