About Me

Mail has been REALLY slow with COVID-19. If by some chance it has been a while since my send date and you haven't received, PLEASE PLEASE let me know first and I will do whatever I can to make it up. Thanks so much for being so patient and stay safe out there!

Hello! My name is Jen. Born & raised in upstate New York. I have ventured into other states (and Canada) but have never been International yet!

Occupation: I am a RN and have been for 13 years now (I have a MSN). I love my work. I mainly work in Geriatric care. I love to sing to my patients, and they love it too!

I am 38. I am a single mom, I have 2 teenage boys who are so different from each other yet still somehow the same! They are amazing kids.

We have 2 Great Danes who think they are lap dogs and a Miniature Schnauzer who thinks she is as big as the Great Danes! She runs the house and keeps the bigger dogs in line. We also have a Sphinx cat who couldn't care less about anything but eating, sleeping and zoomies!

If I send you too many messages, I am sorry!! I just get anxious sometimes when I mail things and I want to know everything made it there okay. And you like it as I do like making others happy.

Also, I always send, I love this site! If you have not received something, please let me know as soon as possible and I will resend ASAP!! I tend to send shortly after partners are assigned (unless it's a little more time consuming)!

“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” – Scott Adams

Favorite Crafts

I love papercrafts such as mixed media/altered works of art. Love to draw and watercolor. I'm addicted to junk journals and planners. I currently use a hobonichi weeks. I love many different styles from cute to modern to vintage/antique.

I like odd buttons (flat), random gears and small odds and ends, pieces of lace, vintage tickets and ads (all kinds), washi tape, textured papers and the like.

I do a lot of woodworking on the side and like to create and build different things.

I do a little bit of sewing but small things and when I have the time or when I feel like sitting down and sewing. Closer to the holidays is when I tend to sew.

“A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.” – Amelia Earhart


I love different Architectural works and older buildings with lots of details.

I love fantasy creatures (non-cute): dragons, tree spirits, faeries, dryads, centaurs, forest nymphs and gods, selkies, hippogriffs, mushrooms, mushroom nymphs, chimeras, elves, mermaids, elementals, unicorns, etc

My music is all over the place. I love jazz and classical, some techno and electronica. Whatever suits my fancy at the time.

I love anything and everything to do with The Nightmare Before Christmas (I have 3 tattoos of NBC, 8 altogether). I am not big into sitting down and watching TV, I rarely have time for it. I do have Netflix, but my boys use it more than I do. We are always outside doing things and adventuring.

I am into nutrition and fitness. If you have a favorite healthy recipe or smoothie recipe you would like to share, please do. I drink water or flavored water - no sodas or sugary drinks.

I love sarcasm and sarcastic things and sayings. I curse too much. I enjoy humor. Things that can make me laugh.

I love antique shops and thrift stores. I love pyrex, fiesta ware, antique/vintage photos and books, vintage buttons, old game pieces, bags of broken metal jewelry, vintage playing cards, vintage stamps (both mint and used), miniature & tiny things, vintage charms & keys. I love using found objects in my art.

I love cards & stationery, stickers (love washi stickers and vintage styles), die cuts/cut outs (no tiny ones, love vintage styles), Tim Holtz, 7 Gypsies, Graphic 45, and the like, love unique postcards (shapes, art styles, etc), german scrap, victorian scrap, vintage tickets, vintage/old book pages, flat metal pieces (decorative).

Other likes include: hiking, kayaking, snow skiing, fishing, relaxing, traveling, going to the city, the mountains, New England in the Autumn, maple syrup season, the first snow of the year, folklore (local too), old/run down graveyards (I like to do rubbings on the stones), old/run down buildings, "haunted" areas, hot air balloons, thick socks I can wear without shoes/boots, candles or candle tarts (no vanilla scented anything please, I like fresh scents). I love honey, apple butter, maple butter, or fruit jams/jellies.

My favorite animals include: foxes, raccoons, river otters, ferrets/weasels, great danes, sphinx cats, hippos, elephants, and sharks.

“Kindness is a passport that opens doors and fashions friends. It softens hearts and molds relationships that can last lifetimes.” – Joseph B. Wirthlin


I don't eat candy or too many sweets. I drink coffee, but drink it black. I do like teas, but only teas such as Earl Grey, English Breakfast and the like. I am not much of a fan of flavored tea or coffee.

****I do not smoke.****

PLEASE DO NOT SEND: Holiday themed items (unless the swap is specifically for that) (except for Christmas themed vintage or vintage like items, I WILL take those), anything religious or racist and sexual content, sequins, confetti, loose glitter, cosmetics/nail products, vanilla scented anything.

Comment: All new washi for me. Cool card too. Thanks so much!
Comment: Hi Jen and thank you for the fantastic front/side loaded pocket. Wasn't this one fun? I'm glad other people can figure these out so they can show the rest of us who have no clue how to make up one of these! Love your plaid paper - makes me think of a fuzzy warm flannel shirt! And so many fun goodies inside. I love the heart pocket with the glitter - did you make that??? Fun tags and journal cards, snowflakes and the cute tiny envelope. So much fun! Thank you for a great swap!!
Response: I thought of warm flannels as well when I pulled the paper! I love the YTPC group and all the fun and new ideas to stay creative! My art journal is packed with so many things! It was perfect! And yes I love making shakers since I learned how to and have a tool to make one with. We R Memory keepers has a fantastic one to use and they are relatively easy! Thank you for the heart!
Comment: Thank you for the beautiful atc!
Comment: Very fun envie! And super cool goodies!. Thank you very much!
