Hi, my name is Katie. I live in Michigan. I have been a long time crafter and discovered junk journaling & bullet journaling durring the shut down. 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. 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.
There are a few swaps that I have sent but have not been rated. I understand that stuff happens. Things get lost, people get busy. If you did not receive my swap, please let me know, I am always happy to resend.
Flowers and botanicals
Bees (save the bees)
Mid century modern

Days of the week stickers for bullet journaling
Earthy and/or muted pastel color palettes

I saw the best idea from someone else's profile, they suggested that people send a picture of the landscape around where they live. I thought that sounded like a great idea, so I'm borrowing it! I would love to see your local landscape.
I tend to watch a lot of nature or cooking shows. I don't really watch any new series, I used to love Project Runway and What not to wear. Now I watch a lot of YouTube. Some of my favorite channels are CHACHA NOTE asmr, Gaile Agostinelli, Girl with Quill, Good Eatings, Mic the Vegan, Plant Based Bride, Pick up Limes, Shayda Campbell, Tiny Acorn, Torryn Marie, Wheezywaiter, Yoga with Adrienne.
I guess that just shows that I like to learn new thing about my interests.
My current junk journal has a Reader's Digest cover and very random pages. I'm going back to a jounal with less blank pages. I have a second journal that I am hoping to use mire as an art journal and try some more mixed media. I'm reading The Quantum and the Lotus, and when that takes too much thought I am reading Leading with Gratitude. (Still!! I really need to read more!) Since my 2021 1000 water color flowers challenge was a bust. This year I think my goal will be to paint greeting cards. I'm hoping I won't get board so fast with the subject matter, since I can work on any theme with this goal. Would it be too ambitious to think I can make hand painted holiday cards for next Christmas and Hanukkah? I have been spending a lot of time in the garden, everything planted and I am enjoying greens, kale, beets and tomatoes.
