About Me

9/29/2020: I received an envelope from Trinidad&Tobago, but unfortunately it was damaged, and I'm not sure what was inside or what swap it was supposed to be for, so I don't know how to rate... if you sent it, please let me know!

Hi, I'm Jen - a 46 year-old married, working (nurse practitioner in hematology), mom of 2 (Mathilde, 11 and Oliver, 9).

My word for 2021: Intention. For the past several years, it has been "mindful", and this is closely related - I'd like to remain intentional, putting thought into everything I do rather than acting robotically or impulsively. Also, I'd like to keep positive intentions at the forefront of my thoughts...

Comment: It is wonderful! Thank you!
Comment: Oh my, these journal note cards are absolutely amazing! I can't decide which one is my favorite - I love them all and can't wait to incorporate them into my junk journals. In fact, I was just pulling together some celestial ephmera and the pink lunar card is going to work perfect for it! Thank you so much!

isabellasnow rated for USAPC: Altered Key Tags on Apr 27, 2021
Comment: Oh, Jennifer, everything I receive from you is just wonderful! You even created a box!! Your key tags are (of course) gorgeous. You managed to get so much detail on each one. Thanks, too, for your sweet note. I'm fully vaccinated now and things seem to be getting more back-to-normal here, too. So nice to be partnered and I'm gearing up for our monthly exchanges!
Comment: Wow, this was extra extra special. Thanks so much.
captkristi rated for AMA: Mapped Mail Art on Apr 23, 2021
Comment: Hey Jen! Thanks so much for the Mail Art. There is something about this that I ABSOLUTELY love. I have kept it on my table since it arrived earlier this week - and I keep looking at the woman's face. I just love it. I also love that Winnemucca (one of my favorite Nevada towns) is showing through her face. I am drawn to this one. Lovely. See you in the mail box :)

9O96O rated for AMA: Face Time ATC -Apr on Apr 20, 2021
Comment: That is so cool, I love how the window turned into a crown. Like you, I often start with something, not sure where it will go, and then it evolves. Everything is beautiful, from the gorgeous envelope to the notecard to the ATC. Thank you so much, JW. πŸ€—
Comment: Double hearts! I love them all - what a score! Thank you!
Comment: Wow - it's not even my birthday or Christmas! Thank you so much for the awesome box of goodies! I'll have fun going through everything and seeing how I can use them.
Comment: Oh my, oh my! These fabric swatches are just stunning. Your layering and the toppers are just gorgeous. I’m just in awe of what you made for me. Thank you so much for such a beautiful swap! I love them ! πŸ₯°β€οΈπŸŒΈπŸŒ·

MamaMangrove rated for AMA: Easy Mixed Media PC on Apr 13, 2021
Comment: Thanks for your delightful mixed media card, Jen. I love the combination of colors and techniques -- & of course I'm a sucker for circus performers!. I haven't updated my Flikr photos in over a year, probably closer to a couple of years now that I think of it, but thanks for having a look.
orneryswife rated for USAPC: Index Card Collage Art #1 on Apr 12, 2021
Comment: Very creative use of the elements!
Comment: I absolutely love this piece!! Thank you so much for sharing it! Have you tried stamping her on tissue paper yet? Or thin rice or mulberry would also be nice. But I love the colours and the chaos! They all work great together.
jannieb rated for Quickie ATC #37 - Senders Choice on Apr 7, 2021
Comment: Thanks for joining my swap. I really liked the ATC's you made for me...especially the little man with the stars & flowers. I love the technique you used. The little envelope/holder was so cute too! Thanks for a wonderful swap. Take care!!

Thanks so much for your finished touch to the ATCs for the Buddy Card Starter Challenge swap. I'm liking the frog too. I like the texture on the here & now one.
