About Me

** 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 a follower of Jesus Christ and married to a wonderful man named Kelly. We have 2 children. Timothy is 16 and Rebekah is 11. 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 at ReHouse Architectural Salvage as their Online Sales and Marketing Specialist. This place is full of inspiration for my larger home projects.

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.

Resending a tag to you for the “I collect” since it seems I’m airheaded when it comes to putting the label on the correct tag. The joys of getting older lol.

I’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!
