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. 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.
Flowers and botanicals
Bees (save the bees)
Mid century modern
Thriftng and Garage sales
Black and white old photos
hand made paper
Days of the week stickers for bullet journaling
Earthy and/or muted pastel color palettes
Purples, pinks, blues, greens, beige, Brown's, off white, grey
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 am also starting to get into post card swaps and am trying to build a collection of postcards.
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 is made up of envelopes, cards and other bits that people have sent me in swaps or given me because they know I'm doing this hobby. It's kind of like a collaboration project with all my swap partners from when I first started swapping! I am also working on a journal for a holiday gift for my parents. I'm reading The Ideal Team Player by Patrick Lencioni. I have decided to challenge myself to watercolor paint 1000 flowers in 2021 to teach myself watercolors. I'm still only on 262 :-/ Maybe when I have some time off for the holidays I can at least make it to halfway.
