About Me (the nutshell version)

Hi I’m Julie, the creator of Shine, Just Shine. I have been writing, creating and crafting my whole life. I am an emerging writer and artist and love learning and sharing new things. My interests are many and range from obscure Persian poetry to making upcycled crafts from old “treasures.”I am also a dabbler sometimes known as Julie 2013scanner or multipotentialite depending on which books/blogs you’ve read.

I have lived in many circumstances and have had an incredible adventure of a life. I currently live in a small city with my husband and two mostly grown children. If you’d like to hear the nuttier version click here.

I created this blog as a way to nurture grassroots creativity and art. I hope to inspire you to be your best, most creative selves and to embrace your own nobility. You can join me by paying it forward and encouraging and supporting others on their creative journeys.

~ Julie
