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)

would love to learn watercolor painting

Stuff I like

New Ideas

Learning about other people

Bad advertisements

Foreign ephemera

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!

Comment: Thanks for the great ATC and owly goodness!
Comment: Wow what a wonderful swap! Everything you've sent is awesome and delightful and put together in the most gorgeous way. The ATC is just beautiful - I love all the layers and how you used the embossed frame and torn, layered papers. Best moth art I've ever seen! And you've sent many treasures besides. The square stickers are terrifically detailed. Did you make them? All the bits and pieces from the flowers to the chip board shapes are right up my alley, and you've even included a perfect selection of washi tape. Many thanks for this truly wondrous swap.
Response: I'm glad you liked it :) I did make the stickers - just inks and rubber stamps!
ladeebug rated for SMSUSA: Happy Mail October 2017 on Oct 23, 2017
Comment: got your Happy Mail for October, thank you so much for the beautiful goods, I loved all the signs of autumn that you included, but most of all , I loved the beautiful handwriting you have, My mom won a handwriting contest when she was young, Alas, I didn't inherit the gene from her. lol I am from the old school where they taught handwriting, and once in a while someone will comment on mine, but nothing as beautiful as yours. I too love the fall colors, I love to paint and the old barns with the trees full of color just call to me, I also love spring with the bright little spots of color when the spring bulbs pop up, I must get some more daffodils in before the first frost, I gave up on tulips, I have chipmunks who dig up them faster than I can plant them, So they won that one, I still like to see them scoot around looking for acorns, that the squirrels have missed. . Thank you for swapping with me. I will think of you as the leaves fall and old man winter is knocking . Marcia
Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it! My husband thinks my writing is hard to read... I hope it's just hard to forge :)

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!

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
