** I guess I better leave this note on my profile a little longer...I was off swap-bot For several years until a few months ago due to various personal issues. It took a long time for me to decide to come back. I wanted to be sure I was going to participate fully. That is why I am back now. I love swapping. I do have a few 3s from years ago. Thanks for reading this. Julie 7/8/19**
I live in Newark, NY which is just outside Rochester. I am married to a wonderful man named Kelly. We have 2 children. Timothy is 17 and Rebekah is 12. 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 audiobooks 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.
