Inspiration Team Member: Julie Odil

Hello, everyone! My name is Julie Odil, from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers.   I am brand new to the SVG Attic design team (inspiration team), and I'm very excited to be here! 
 I began blogging a little over 2 years, and it has totally changed my life.  Then, about 18 months ago, I bought a Silhouette to celebrate my first ever design team acceptance.  Well, it was one of the best purchases I've ever made!  I've had sooooo much fun with Silhouette and SVG files.  3D projects are generally my favorites, but I'll make whatever strikes my fancy.
A little about me:
I live in a small resort community in NW Wisconsin.  The town is so small, we don't even have a stop light!
I work full-time as the activity director/music therapist at the local nursing home.  I've been there for nearly 29 years now and I LOVE my job! My husband and I have 2 Golden Retrievers. One of them goes to work with me everyday.  She's far more therapeutic to some of the residents than I will ever be.
Born and raised:  50 miles south of where I live now.  I haven't ventured too far from home.
Places I've lived:  Eau Claire, WI (where I was born), Chetek (my current home town), Minneapolis, MN (where I went to college and got my first job), St. Cloud, MN (second job out of college), Newark, NJ (internship).
Crafting Style: eclectic.  Although I'm generally clean and crisp with my projects and lines, I never know when I'll try something else and really get inky.  I love stamps and use them on almost every project I make.  I also love paints -- both watercolor and acrylic.
My favorite SVG Attic project:  I purchased quite a few SVG Attic files in January and February of this year.  I love the sets and the variety in the sets.  Here's a step card I made with the "All at Sea" set.
