About Me

Hi, my name is Katie. I live in Michigan. I have been a long time crafter and recently discovered junk journaling & bullet journaling. It has been a great way to use up my long ignored scrap-booking stash and helps me relax after work. I enjoy finding creative ways to upcycle old books and non traditional crafting items. And bullet journaling helps keep me organized and on track with my goals while giving me a chance to draw and doodle. Recently I have been trying some watercolor painting as well. My other hobbies include weaving, cooking, gardening, and yoga. I especially like cooking healthy meals from the vegitables that I grow.

I also enjoy traveling, but don't get to do it very often. I hoped to go to Colorado for a yoga retreat, but these days not much traveling is going on. I hope to eventually visit every state in the US. I enjoy visiting National parks when I travel. I spent a semester after collage studing art and French in Paris, but I still don't speak French. It is still a skill I would love to learn.

I joined this forum as a way to connect with other crafters and swap some happy mail. I'm not interested in swapping tea or food. I am loving reading peoples profiles and trying to find or create things that I think they will like. I also enjoy working the contents and envelopes from swaps I recieved into my junk journal.

Things I like

Ephemera

Leaves

Bees (save the bees)

Current projects

Right now I'm replacing 2 of my raised beds and planting my vegitable garden. I am also going to pull out the dying bushes in the front of my house and put in shade plants and flowers instead. I'm working on a junk journal with a vintage style, constructed mostly of junk mail and reused paper. I'm reading Plant Seed, Pull Weed, Nurturing the Garden of Your Life by Geri Larkin and Nine Hills to Nambonkaha by Sarah Erdman. I have decided to challenge myself to watercolor paint 1000 flowers in 2021 to teach myself watercolors. I'm on 205 :-)
