to Julia :)
"Hi there! My name is Julia, I am from Brazil, and I’ve been a paper designer since I was able to hold and cut with scissors! I considered myself a very blessed being ‘cause I have never been rich or anything similar to it, but the Lord has helped me so much to grow up as a human being in all senses, that, whenever a good opportunity comes my way, I put as much love and effort as I can so that at the end it turns out being a great new something on my life.
In 2004 I started learning 3D paper techniques and took a refinement course at the Alicia's Atelier in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
On 2007 I started focusing on Scrapbook and, since then, our home office has never been the same! In 2008 I got the following Certifications: SDU (EK) Basic Course, in Brazil and SDU Advanced Methods, in Chicago. With great joy, I accepted the invitation to become Scrap Teacher at a local store in Brasilia-Brazil, as well as member of the Hobby Farm Design Team 2009.
At the moment,I juggle among my daughter raising, family, career, community work, teaching …, besides the everyday scrapping hours! August this year I attended the USA CKU-Provo willing to get updated and learn even more of Scrap technique. And… Won! Yes! I won the CKU contest “Best Project on the Overall”. And that’s not all! It’s September, spring time in Brazil and flowers are just blossoming and, together with it, I got the wonderful news that very soon Upsy Daisy will have its products sold on the Brazilian Market and… from now on I have a spot on the Upsy Daisy Design Team!!!
I shall thank the Lord, my close family and my true friends for the wonderful achievements in my life. Their support and love make all difference in my life"
