About Me

Hi, Iโ€™m Jen.

I am a married mom with 3 boys. I love vintage papers like ledgers, library cards, old index cards, forms, envelopes, etc.

Send Me Your Art! I love receiving and displaying things you made. I will always prefer handmade.

BIRDS! I love birds. I am starting a bird junk journal and have been collecting bird images, preferable vintage or bright colors.

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 trips, gardening, recipe, a few art journals and my classic journal for writing.

I just started a yellow and blue art journal and welcome anything in these colors.

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, butterflies, botanical, Banksy, Better Homes and Gardens (vintage only), bookstores

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, sea, ships, sailboats, stickers (not puffy or child-themed/reward), sunshine, 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


Y: yellow

Z: zen, zines

I will not use samples of food, lotions, makeup or drinks. I do not pass these on either so please just save these items for other swappers.

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.
