Julie Helenius' Profile

About

Born and raised in Chicago. My mother was very artistic so creativity was in my blood and bones from a very young age. My day job is as a children's music instructor and entertainer. Crafting is my therapy.
I love all things old and enjoy scouring thrift stores, antique stores and garage sales. I always wonder about who the original owners were and what life was like when they first bought the item. I love mixing old and new but only have so much space so I began selling on ebay and esty to pare down my own collections. And also to test the waters of selling my hand made crafts. It's an enjoyable hobby but I think I'll keep my day job.
