About Me

Hello! My name is Jennifer and I am a 34yr old wife, homeschooling stay-at-home mom, foster mom, Christ follower, and artist. I live in the beautiful state of Michigan, only about a 10 minute drive from Lake Michigan. We have 1 dog, 2 cats, and 2 fish tanks full of small freshwater fish.

My favorite thing to swap is Artist Trading Cards! I started creating and collecting them in the spring of 2020. Before that I had been working on learning to paint for a little over a year. I often use acrylic and/or watercolor paints in my art pieces, but I am learning more and more about mix media and collage. I enjoy using stamped images, scrapbook papers, colored pencils, lace, corrugated cardboard, thread and stitching, and more! I believe an artist puts a little piece of themselves into everything they create. I am also interested in bookmark, ephemera, mini pocket letter, or other arts and crafts type swaps.

Other hobbies of mine include reading (especially historical fiction and fantasy), riding my bicycle, riding ATV's, journaling, and baking. Some of these hobbies we enjoy together as a family, along with playing all kinds of board and card games, doing puzzles, and playing video games. I also recently opened an ArtPal Shop to sell my work, including journal/purse dangles, bracelets, and more.

I will only mark my swaps sent after I drop them in the mailbox. If after a couple weeks (leaving time for mail delays) you don't receive it let me know. I am happy to re-send when needed. Also, if something is delivered with postage due, send me a message and I will send you what is owed! And I am so sorry in advance if that does happen, but I will do my best to make sure it doesn't.

Response: Oh, I didn't realize it was an international bag... I have never done an international bag swap, only the US ones, so it must have been sent to me by mistake. Sorry about that!

Hi Jennifer! I got your PC in the mail recently, thanks so much for wanting to be my postcard penpal! I am excited to start sending PCs back and forth with you. I will get a reply sent out asap! Also, could you do me a favor and private message me your address? I know you wrote it on the top corner of your PC but the postal machine stamped directly over that spot and I can't quite make out part of your address. Thanks so much - just wanna be sure that my reply finds its way to you. Also! Yay for meeting fellow Michiganders here on swap-bot!!!
