About Me

I live in Fairport, NY which is just outside Rochester. I am married to a wonderful man named Kelly. We have 2 children. Timothy is 20 and Rebekah is 15. We also have a cat, but I am not really into a lot of cat things.

I have a BA in English Writing with a minor in Visual Arts. I currently work for a retail merchandising company traveling to local stores to help with product placement and presentation. I love listening to audio books while on the road.

I am currently trying out pocket letters. I just sent one to my daughter at camp. I am also working on a few different themed journals...a book of herbs and their properties, a book about moon phases as they relate to planting and living naturally, a book of Tarot cards. I use a bullet journal regularly for planning purposes and junk journals for memory keeping.

I love botanicals, vintage photos of anything, ephemera (original or good reproductions), astronomy including moon, stars, planets, etc.

Casting Crowns,

News Boys,

Steven Curtis Chapman,

Comment: Julie! First of all - it's always fun when you love the envie, which I did! (I sort of want to find a large crossword book now). Thank you for the wonderful package - With each item I pulled out, I kept thinking of the different ways I could use them. Thank you! Question! Do you know what the triangle, sewn item is called - maybe it's a tag? TIA. Once again, thank you so much. Be well! <3
Response: LOL So glad you enjoyed everything. The sewn triangle thing was from a tutorial I watched. She was using it over the top edge of a junk journal page to tuck something in.

Comment: Thank you so so much, I love how carefully made this is! I think I will use it as small album for a trip, as I can store something inside the envelopes and hide more personal journaling there too. And also thank you for the generous extras, that was such a surprise as well, very kind of you <3 <3 <3.

Thank you so much for the Destash package you sent. There are so many neat things to use. Love the way you packaged everything too, smart idea! So sorry for being a little late on thanking you, it arrived safely :)

Resending a tag to you for the โ€œI collectโ€ since it seems Iโ€™m airheaded when it comes to putting the label on the correct tag. The joys of getting older lol.

Iโ€™ll have a replacement sent out to you in a couple of days. Please let me know when you receive. You can pass on the items to someone who will enjoy them. My apologies to you! Trial and error. Hope you enjoy the replacement. :)

Thanks for sending the cool zine. It's pretty great for a first attempt! My zines have been less about teaching or learning and more about feelings but I've had more fun with using color...ah the beauty of having a color copier at home :-) Have a great day!
