We want to thank Anne Swinkels for being the October guest designer!

Our guest designer for November is Julie Steed. Welcome Julie!



Hello!  My name is Julie and I hail from the often-soggy Pacific NW area of the U.S.  I am accompanied on life’s adventures by my husband of 24 years, Chris, my daughter, two sons, and some furry and feathery friends.  My day job is a preschool teacher – I get paid to play all day!

As a child my favorite part of school was when the teacher pulled out the art supplies.  Color, texture and composition still catch my eye.  To support my paper and stamp buying habits I opened an Etsy shop, Elves In The Attic, in 2009.   I’ve been a fan of Stampotique for years and love the wonderfully quirky style of their designers.  I’m thrilled and honored to be a guest designer this month!
