Hi! I’m Julie – or Crafty Julie – and I love scrapbooking, crafting, and being creative. I also love to learn and love to share what I learn with others. I always try to lead my best creative life because being creative makes me happy.
In recent years I haven’t been able to do as much crafting as I would like since I became a mommy (insert baby now turned two-year old crazy person.) I learned during the first year of my daughter’s life, that while trying to be a mommy, part-time business woman, and wife that I lost the way in the creative part of my world. I recognized that I needed to find a way to bring creativity and crafting back into my life because it brought me joy.
Fast forward a few months, a crazy idea, and some inspiring mompreneurs and here we are – CraftyJulie.com – my little crafty corner of the web where leading your best creative life is my motto. And I want you to join me to lead your best creative life, too!
So why should you come along with me? Well, I have been scrapbooking for over 15 years and learning new crafts for as long as I can remember. I love making beautiful things and love to share what I learn with others so that they can make beautiful things too. I am super passionate about everything I do and want to share it with the world. My friends and family will tell you that I’m usually up for trying any new crafts, projects, or anything creative.
I love to discover new creative things on social media and want to share it with my friends. I want to let them know about the newest website that I found for creative learning. Or a new person to follow on Instagram for scrapbooking ideas. Or a great tutorial that I found on Pinterest for a DIY project.
I also love to be the friend that helps out whenever asked. I’m the go to girlfriend for “I can’t remember how to reload my adhesive, can you help me?” – “Of course! Let’s figure it out together.” Whatever questions my friends have, I’m there in a second to help. Let’s figure out how to get that photo to print right, or what do you think about this layout, or how should we organize these crafting supplies. Whatever it is, I’m your girl!
I want us to support each other in our crafting lives, just like I do with my “real life” friends. So can we be creative best friends already?! Come on this journey with me and lets push each other to always try to lead our best creative life together.
