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

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!
