About Me

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.

I'm going to try an ABC list because I find them so helpful when my swap partner has one. So, here goes, the ABCs of me:

A: art, address labels, animals, Annapolis, altered art, Amsterdam, ATCs, alternative music, ads (vintage), antiquarian

B: books, birds, boating, Buddha, bohemian, Bahamas, Ban.do, butterflies, botanical, Banksy, Better Homes and Gardens (vintage only), bookstores, Brooklyn Art Library

C: collage, The Cure, color palettes, cameras, Christianity, churches, Chagall, curiosities

D: Dutch, Depeche Mode, die cuts, doodling, Delft blue

E: ephemera, envelopes, 80s, environment, Earth

F: fishing, Florida, flowers, the Florida Keys, Fort Lauderdale, Field Notes, fussy cuts

G: gardening, green, good vibes, gratitude

H: Holland, handmade, hope, happiness, hippie, Tim Holtz, hot air balloons, happy mail

I: ink, indigo, iconic style

J: journals, journal supplies, junk journals, joy

K: kites, kindness

L: letter writing, love, ledgers, library, lady bugs, lemons, limes, Ladies Who Lunch

M: marine life, music, maps (especially vintage and map postcards), mixed media art, mail, museums, mindfulness

N: nautical, nature

O: ocean, origami

P: painting, postcards, paper (especially vintage), patterns, peace, plants, pen pals, preppy, plaid, photos, postage stamps (especially vintage and foreign)

Q: quartz (images/stickers)

R: rainbows, retro, recycling, rain, ribbon (vintage or retro), reading, randomness

S: stationery, scrapbooking, sobriety, sea, ships, sailboats, stickers (not puffy or child-themed/reward), sunshine, the Sketchbook Project, stamps (ink and postage)

T: travel, trees, tulips, typewriters, teal

U: unique items, umbrellas, unplugged

V: vintage, Van Gogh, vellum paper, vellum bags, vibes (positive, good, healing)

W: weather, watercolor, water, washi, windmills

X:

Y: yellow

Z: zen, zines

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.

Comment: Thank you so much, Jennifer, for the lovely card and the fun enclosures! I opened my cards advent calendar style, opening 2 -4 cards everyday Dec 1 - Dec. 25. Yours was the last card I opened and it made my day. I love all the golden enclosures from the washi, the sticker and the paper scrap square. I hope you had a Merry Christmas! 🎄♥️... Karla, 12/25/22

Comment: Hi! Thank you so much for all of the goodies that you sent me for this swap! I love the little piece you made for one of my junk journals and will be certainly be using it! The note card is rather interesting, but I couldn’t figure out what was going on until I read the back. Lol! I love the old-fashioned telephone stamp! It’s perfect for my vintage junk journals and other projects! I can’t wait to use it!

Comment: Yowza Batgirl!! So in love with everything you sent. The envelope is a keeper for sure, and thought it was fabulous. Then the PC’s, especially the babes on the beach, made my day. And when I thought it couldn’t get any better I reached your index card. Can you see the sparkle in the air from my beaming smile? Can’t wait to go over to the studio to display it. And finally the handmade pocket with the rubber stamped images…adorable! So enjoyed reading your note. We should swap photos of our studios! Thanks ever so much for this truly happy mail!!
