Greetings! I am Julie and I am 47 years old, born and raised in the southern United States, married to the love of my life for almost 28 years, Christian, have one 22 year old daughter and two dogs, named Harvey and Azalea. I live in the great state of Tennessee, just south of Nashville. I love to travel and look forward to visiting lots of new places in the future! I love and collect all types of paper with a special love of all vintage ephemera. I am a voracious reader with a great love for cozy mysteries, historical fiction and cookbooks. I always have a book in my hand if I am waiting on something or someone. I like to make smash journals, handmade books and am always using paper in some way or form.
I also enjoy Etsy and handmade products: vintage paper, soaps, crochet, retro fabrics, stationery.
I love taking classes of all sorts: jewelry, mixed-media, journal making, soldering, needle felting, weaving, embroidery.
I love crime thrillers/mystery, classics, like Jane Austen, beach reads and lots of fiction.
I have bookshelves everywhere in my home and I am always asked if I have read all the books in them all. The answer is always yes and sometimes more than once!
