Hi, I’m Jen.
I am a married, stay at home mom to 3 boys. I am addicted to vintage papers like ledgers, library cards, old index cards, forms, envelopes, etc.
I am working on a recipe journal made from a vintage cookbook. It is an amazing project and so much fun. I am also making a garden journal using my vintage Better Homes & Gardens Garden Book. I make travel journals from all of our adventures.
Current Journals: travel journals from my Bahamas trip and Amsterdam trip, my summer 2022 journal, gardening, recipe, a few art journals and my classic journal for writing.

The only thing I ask not to be sent is anything related to alcohol (sober over 4 years!) like wine and alcohol memes, labels, etc. Thank you!
I will not use samples of food, lotions, makeup or drinks. I do not pass these on either.
Everything else is fine. If I don't like it or it's not my style, I'll just pass it on. No worries!
For every swap I send, please feel free to message me or keep my address and write back. I am always looking for new pen pals and people to swap with.
NOTE: I recycle as much as I can, especially envelopes, note cards, unique images on envelopes, cool stamps, etc.
Send Me Your Art! I love receiving and displaying things you made. I will always prefer handmade.
