Julie has a passion for creating. From her garden to her sketch pad, from the kitchen to her camera, she enjoys the process of creating at all levels. Julie has also been fascinated with technology and all the cool things it can do for her. Combining these two passions, creating and computer technology, has led her to discover the joy of digital scrapbooking. Julie began paper scrapping 10 years ago to capture the joys her children brought into her life. During the fall of 2003 she picked up a magazine that talked about a new hobby, digiscrapping. After surfing many sites, Julie discovered that she had a passion for this new and interesting hobby. Then, during the summer of 2004 her mind began to turn to thoughts of creating her own backgrounds and elements. She developed her first CD called “Julie Mead’s From Girly to Grungy” and began to research how to promote her first product. On a whim, she decided to open her own website and see if she could sell her products online. Julie gave herself one year to see if her new site, E-scape and Scrap, would be a success. She has been thrilled at the the reception her online boutique has recieved in the digital scrapping world. But more importantly, she has enjoyed meeting people from around the world, many have become friends she keeps in close contact. The year, 2009, will mark the beginning of E-scape and Scrap’s sixth year in business.
Julie has 2 grown children, a daughter and a son, and one grandson. She has been married to her husband for 30 years. Her family loves to get together as often as possible. Julie is a full-time kindergarten teacher in her small rural community. Running her online boutique is a challenge but one that she thoroughly enjoys. You can also find her designs at www.acherryontop.com and www.cottagearts.net . She was part of a team of designers that created a memory book for the TV show, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Her work has been published in numerous magazines. She has also had an article published in the Digital Scrapbooking Magazine. In the summer of 2005 she was a featured digital artist in the magazine, Simply Sentiments.
