About Me

Hi, I’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 Bahamas trip and Amsterdam trip, my summer 2022 journal, gardening, recipe, a few art journals and my classic journal for writing.

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.

Comment: Woo Hoo! Your envelope was open across the bottom when it arrived, but I think I received everything. Love the fabulous collaged envie , the assortment of postage stamps and the decorated window envie inside. Feels like fabrictape across the bottom…is that homemade? My very favorites are the fussy cuts from book pages!! Yowza Batgirl! Those are right up my street!!!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️
