About Me

9/29/2020: I received an envelope from Trinidad&Tobago, but unfortunately it was damaged, and I'm not sure what was inside or what swap it was supposed to be for, so I don't know how to rate... if you sent it, please let me know!

Hi, I'm Jen - a 45 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

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

CAMILES rated for USATC: Halloween ATC Coin Swap on Oct 25, 2020
Comment: Cute coin, thank you n for papers, too. Love how you decorated the envelope.
Comment: I always wanted to try the toilet paper embossed technique - it turned out super cool! Thanks for the amazing ATC’s you sent - I love them, both! Happy crafting! 😁
Comment: Hi Jen! I always love receiving mail from you because I know it's always going to be AWESOME! First, thanks for the newsy letter--I adore that paper--did you design it? And the envies ARE up to your crafty standards--they are understated and elegant ;+) LOVE the black envie you mailed--it's spooky-beautiful. As always, I completely understand the need for (and lack of) alone time. When my children were young and I would take a bath, the two youngest would bring a blanket and books into the bathroom to 'keep me company.' haha . . . Hang in there, my friend!

Rabbitfreedom rated for Creepy Cool ATCoins: Set 2 on Oct 23, 2020
Comment: Wow, I really love these ATCoins - the images are striking - are they rubber stamps? Loved how you colored them too - thanks for creating such beautifully morbid works of art!
Response: I'm glad you like them - I honestly don't even remember what they looked like, lol! I need to get better at taking pics of what I've made so I can answer questions like this!
Comment: Hello and Happy Tuesday! Thank you very much for the beautiful ATCs. Autumn is such a special time and you captured it perfectly in your art. I was also very inspired by your handmade notecards and envelope. So nice! Have a wonderful day! :)

lmacdavis93 rated for YTPC: Paper Bag Booklet on Oct 19, 2020
Comment: Hi Jen and I love this paper bag booklet you made for me! I really like the printed paper you used for the inside pocket and the bird on the outside is perfect for fall - I would have used it for sure. And all the fun goodies inside - that big butterfly tag, the old library card that you embossed, fun little papers - I love it all and will most definitely be using it for future projects. Thanks so much for a wonderful swap!!

Arabella rated for YTPC: Autumn Stacked Clusters on Oct 13, 2020
Comment: Oh,Jen!!! These clusters are soooo beautiful!! I don't know if I can stand to use them - might have to just put them on a card and hang them in my craft room!! And yes, they do peel off the parchment paper and I can attach them to the card! Thank you so much! (We live about 10 miles from one of the fires, thankfully, so got a lot of smoke for a few days.) Take care and have a lovely autumn!

🀣 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!
