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

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!

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

Thank you so much for the Halloween themed Randomail, and I really loved your idea of an advent type of thing for my mom too, thank you, thank you!!!

I'm wondering if you've received the "lot's of rules atc" or if it is wandering around the postal system, lost and lonely? Could you let me know if you've received or if I should resharpen the tools I used in lieu of scissors? :)
