About Me

Mail has been slowly picking up, although it's still quite a bit slower due to world issues/staffing problems. If it's been a while since my send date, PLEASE PLEASE contact me first and I will do whatever I can to make it up to you! Please have patience with our postal system during this time. And stay safe out there!

I prefer Quality over Quantity. While I appreciate you wanting to send me extras, please no more paper scraps or just save the extras for someone else. I have more than enough goodies and would just like you to put your very best into the swap itself! Thank you!!

Hello! My name is Jen. Born & raised in western upstate New York (and now live in eastern NY, for about 8 years now, really love it over here). I have ventured into other states (and Canada) but have never been International yet!

Occupation: I am a RN and have been for 13 years now (I have a MSN). I love my work. I mainly work in Geriatric care. I love to sing to my patients, and they love it too!

I am a single mom, I have 2 teenage boys who are so different from each other yet still somehow the same! They are amazing kids.

We have 2 Great Danes who think they are lap dogs and a Miniature Schnauzer who thinks she is as big as the Great Danes! She runs the house and keeps the bigger dogs in line. We also have a Sphinx cat who couldn't care less about anything but eating, sleeping, wearing sweaters and zoomies!

If I send you too many messages, I am sorry!! I just get anxious sometimes when I mail things and I want to know everything made it there okay. And you like it as I do like making others happy.

Also, I always send, I love this site! If you have not received something, please let me know as soon as possible and I will resend ASAP!! I tend to send shortly after partners are assigned (unless it's a little more time consuming)!

Favorite Crafts

I love papercrafts such as mixed media/altered works of art. Love to draw and watercolor. I'm addicted to junk journals and planners. I currently use a hobonichi weeks. I love many different styles from cute to modern to vintage/antique.

I do a lot of woodworking on the side and like to create and build different things. I also do a lot of 3D printing and playing with my Glowforge! I have been dabbling in a bit of resin too!

I do a little bit of sewing but small things and when I have the time or when I feel like sitting down and sewing. Closer to the holidays is when I tend to sew.

“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.” – Amelia Earhart


I love different Architectural works and older buildings with lots of details.

I love fantasy creatures (non-cute): dragons, tree spirits, faeries, dryads, centaurs, forest nymphs and gods, selkies, hippogriffs, mushrooms, mushroom nymphs, chimeras, elves, mermaids, elementals, unicorns, etc

My music is all over the place. I love jazz and classical, some techno and electronica. Whatever suits my fancy at the time.

I love anything and everything to do with The Nightmare Before Christmas (I have 3 tattoos of NBC, 8 altogether). I am not big into sitting down and watching TV, I rarely have time for it. I do have Netflix, but my boys use it more than I do. We are always outside doing things and adventuring.

I am into nutrition and fitness. If you have a favorite healthy recipe or smoothie recipe you would like to share, please do. I drink water or flavored water - no sodas or sugary drinks.

I love sarcasm and sarcastic things and sayings. I curse too much. I enjoy humor. Things that can make me laugh.

I love antique shops and thrift stores. I love pyrex, fiesta ware, antique/vintage photos and books, vintage buttons, vintage advertising, vintage playing cards, vintage stamps (both mint and used), miniature & tiny things, vintage charms & keys. I love using found objects in my art.

I love cards & stationery, stickers (love washi stickers and vintage styles), die cuts/cut outs (no tiny ones, love vintage styles), Tim Holtz, 7 Gypsies, Graphic 45, and the like, love unique postcards (shapes, art styles, etc), german scrap, victorian scrap, vintage tickets, vintage/old book pages, flat metal pieces (decorative).

Other likes include: hiking, kayaking, snow skiing, fishing, relaxing, traveling, going to the city, the mountains, New England in the Autumn, maple syrup season, the first snow of the year, folklore (local too), old/run down graveyards, old/run down buildings, "haunted" areas, hot air balloons, thick socks I can wear without shoes/boots, candles or candle tarts (no vanilla scented anything please, I like fresh scents). I love local honey, apple butter, maple butter, or fruit jams/jellies.

My favorite animals include: foxes, raccoons, river otters, ferrets/weasels, great danes, sphinx cats, hippos, elephants, and sharks.

I truly appreciate anything when someone puts the time & effort into putting a package together for me.

“Kindness is a passport that opens doors and fashions friends. It softens hearts and molds relationships that can last lifetimes.” – Joseph B. Wirthlin


I don't eat candy or too many sweets. I drink coffee, but drink it black. I do like teas, but only teas such as Earl Grey, English Breakfast and the like. I am not much of a fan of flavored tea or coffee.

****I do not smoke.****

PLEASE DO NOT SEND: Holiday themed items (unless the swap is specifically for that) (except for Christmas themed vintage or vintage like items, I WILL take those), anything religious or racist and sexual content, sequins, confetti, loose glitter, cosmetics/nail products, vanilla scented anything.

Thank you for the July WW! I love the fabric squares. The prints are really pretty. I plan to use them for TM inspired patches. I'm making myself a bag rn with some neon/black fabrics I got for a steal on Mercari. I love the note cards you sent as well. You have the best taste in cards. Thanks for thinking of me this month!
