About Me

Update 12/27/22 -- Hey Swap friends! I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for being patient with me on rating swaps. I have been offline a lot, sometimes unable to get on for a couple of weeks. I have had several life changes in just the past few months, including taking long-term placement of another newborn, being diagnosed with a chronic illness, and moving my mother closer so as to take care of her. Because these things, and more, require so much of my attention, I will be swapping a lot less type 3 swaps for a while.

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.

Jennifer you and your family are in my prayers.

"The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." -Philippians 4:7

MichelleKemper on Mar 11, 2023:

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand." Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Blessings, Michelle
