About Me

Currently under construction...

Hi, I'm Jen - a 45 year-old married, working (nurse practitioner in hematology), mom of 2 (Mathilde, 8 and Oliver, 5).

I'm returning from a hiatus of a few months, during which I tried to focus on the things that really matter (children, spouse, home) - and decided that crafting and fun mail IS what really matter! At least, in part.

In any event, I miss swapping and mail. So, I'm back! (And, I'm looking for 2-3 new penpals :)

Favorite Crafts

Making messes

Mail Art


mixed media everything

Journals/planners (I use a Midori travelers' notebook)


spinning yarn


would love to learn watercolor painting

cooking (vegetarian)

Stuff I like

New Ideas

Learning about other people

Weird or Quirky

Dark and Strange

Bad advertisements

Foreign ephemera

Nature (mushrooms, insects, plant life)

Gnomes and Vikings

Hand-lettering and Calligraphy

Fish and sea-life


Colors: Green! Earth tones, neutrals, brights in obnoxious combinations. Don't care for: purple, pastels, cornflower blue, mauve.

Green/Simple living, minimalism - the idea at least!

Exercise/Fitness (trying!)

Buddhism, mindfulness, kindness

Stuff I don't like

Comment: I would like to say you have definately succeeded in harvest themed for this ATC, I do love the texture across the surface of the card. And I adore the little note paper you added with it - how cute are those tear tap mushrooms!
Comment: You really went over the top! Love all of them! I had such a time sewing mine as my machine does not like the slickness of the vellum. The zigzag was a nice touch.
Comment: Very nice! Thank you :)

Comment: Hi Jen, Thank you for the blue ATC and all the goodies you enclosed in your mailing! Your explanation of how you created your card really helps me to see all that is there. As a new collagist (collager?), I am learning new techniques all the time.
