About Me

Hello,

My name is Julie. Wow can't believe it's almost been a year since I've joined Swap-bot and it's been a really great experience joining the swaps. I love being able to write my letters to my pen-pals but sometimes it's nice to also take a break and do something small like sending someone a post card or some happy mail to brighten their mail box.

I think it's great that the old fashioned letter writing is coming back and people are connecting through it.

I've been married to my husband for 16 years. I'm also a full-time working mom to three minions that keeps me very busy and also a military wife so once in a while life gets really hectic and I might be out of commission for a while so I try my best to let my swap partners and pen-pals know, it's not my intent to send something later but I'm still sending your stuff out.

Favorite Music

I love pop music, Korean pop and alternative rock, 80's, 90's music but really I will try to listen to any music and as long as my ears like it, it will probably go on my Spotify play list.

Favorite Books

I am really more of fiction reader. Not that I hate non-fiction it's just with my attention span being that of a squirrel, it really needs to grab my attention in order for me to read non-fiction.

I haven't had much time to do any reading but some of the books I've liked are fantasy, fantasy romance, and classics like Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, Anne of Green Gables, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights. I also like YA books like Hunger Games series, Mortal Instruments and Harry Potter.

The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan which I started reading when I was a sophomore in high school like a 100 years ago now.. haha I'll likely have to like start reading again from the beginning since it looks like Amazon is coming up with a television series!

Favorite Movies

I enjoy watching action movies, sci-fi, romance and comedy but I'm terrible when it comes to horror or suspense. I'm one of those that tends to watch through their fingers LOL. Some of my favorites are Sleepless in Seattle, all of the Avengers, Star Wars of course, John Wick, James Bond, Die Hard, Lord of the Rings series, Matrix, Bend It Like Beckham, and numerous others..

Favorite Crafts

I'm mostly into paper crafting. I got into paper crafting when I was pregnant with my oldest 12 years ago. I like making small things like cards, tags, using washi tape, stickers and embellishments on my planner, journal, and letters. I've participated in craft fairs as well to make stocking stuffer items for kids and people to buy their teachers and friends during the holidays. Really I'm like a stationary, washitape, planner stickers, stickers addict LOL. I can't help it. There's too many cute things!

Favorite Television

I rarely get a chance to watch t.v. nowadays since I'm too busy being mom and doing other projects so it's more like Netflix whenever I can. Some of my favorite t.v. shows all tended to be sci-fi like Star Trek, Stargate, Falling Skies, The Librarian, Farscape. Looking forward to the Witcher Season 2! I also like watching kdrama, cdrama, jdrama when I can.

Instragram

I'm @MyKraftymakes if you're ever on IG. I tend to post my journaling, planner, letter writing and crafty stuff there.

Other things

Things I like are: Kawii anything...stickers, stationary, etc. I like flowers (Hydrangea is one of my favorites) Faries, Vintage or Shabby chic theme Anything with Pusheen the cat I like bright neon and pastel colors washi tape - any kinds I'm not picky coffee - I love it tea - I don't have a specific flavor, I think it's great to try variety Chocolate- Rocky Road, KitKat, Twix are awesome Pens and Markers - I like all of them but some of my favs are gel pens, glitter pens, fine points

Comment: I have been beading jewelry for one of my pen pals for a Christmas Present. It is coming along great. I want to journal but just can't seem to get to it, lol. One of these days I'll make time. It has been in the 90's around here which is much better than the 100's you Californians have had to live with. If you would like a postcard in return send me your address and I'll get it right out. I love the flower postcard you sent.

Comment: Thank you for the Mt. Shasta pc and your nice message. We used to live in Everett after my husband got out of the Navy in 1981. He was stationed on NAS Whidbey. We live south of Seattle now, next to Puyallup but make a trip up north every few years. Mt. Shasta would be beautiful to see, too. Take care and thanks again!
