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...

Favorite Crafts

Making messes

Mail Art


mixed media everything

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

Bad advertisements

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

Attempts at religious conversion

Donald Trump




Glitter and confetti

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.

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.

Comment: Awwww!! Jen!! I always love to get your swaps and I can always tell they are from you because the envelope is so beautifully decorated!! But I think you have outdone yourself on this swap!!! All of the snippets are so beautiful and well constructed! I just love them!! If I had to chose, I would say that my favorite is the steampunk "Beauty" one! No, no, the frog one!! Wait, no, the flower "light spirited" one! Oh, I can't choose a favorite! Thank you, thank you so much for all of your amazing snippets!!!

AliCrafter rated for YTPC: Zig Zag Flipbook on Mar 30, 2021
Comment: What a delight to receive this swap from you. I love it, snake and all! I LOVE the black trim you used on the back - is there a place I could get some? There are so many little places to discover secrets, and so much fun goodies. I thank you so much! Oh! I forgot to add that the envelope was fun, too. Vintagey and using the paper bag - nice.
Response: I’m glad you like it! I honestly don’t remember what kind of black trim I used... I keep trying to conjure up a picture in my head, but I’m blank 😐
