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 save them 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 10 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 15 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.

lindseyjae rated for MAIL ART - The Sun on Jan 8, 2023
Comment: Hi Jen! Thanks so much for the cool sun-themed envelope! I also love the fun stuff you included inside for me. Sadly where I live we haven't had hardly any sunshine so far this year, but that is typical for Michigan during the winter months - either way, it isn't too great to not see the sun for so long ah. Thanks again for brightening my day with this swap - take care!
Comment: Beautiful envelope, as always. And I got a laugh from the notecard you sent. Love the plus-size kawaii stickers, too. Thanks for a fab swap. Happy new year to you and the boys! 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣3️⃣

so very much for the amazing RAK package you sent me! I received the pick up slip a few days ago but only today was able to get to the post office before closing. I opened the box and Oh. my. goodness! I am overwhelmed with giddiness at the package- it is chock-o-bock full of happy mail goodies! I am going to be enjoying just playing with and going through this for days! Thank you SO SO very much. It seriously feels like second Christmas receiving this delightful and generous package! BIG appreciation! :-D

Welcome to Sunshine Swaps!

VioletLove on Jan 4, 2023:

Thank you so much for the surprise RAK!!! I hadn't checked the mail in a couple of days because I was only expecting unfun mail. So, it was extra lovely to find your package! We are having some unusually stormy weather and a new embroidery project is just what I need. Thank you so much for your kindness :)

OMG! i just opened the box you sent me for the LBOE - Christmas Presents. You managed to make a package where every single little thing is perfect for me! From the great articulated dragon and dragon crystal ball to the cut dragon card to the color of the beads to craft with, you absolutely spoiled me! Thank you so much and Aloha!
