Julee Tilman - vervegirl
Boise, ID
Hi friends! I'm so excited to be jumping into the Dirt Pile! When I stumbled across SplitcoastStampers back in 2006, it changed my life. I had just quit my corporate graphic design job and although I had stamped the occasional birthday and thank you card through the years, had never really thought of stamping as something you practiced. I discovered the daily challenges and I was hooked. I chased challenges, learned so much about making cards, and made amazing friendships. I started a blog, then somewhere along the way I decided to start a stamp company. And the amazing people I met here on SCS followed me along for the ride. My heart is overwhelmed by this amazing community and I'm so honored to be chosen to design for you all. My username is Vervegirl, chosen partly for my now closed company, but the meaning of Verve is creative enthusiasm, which resonates in my soul and is very much a part of who I am.

I live nestled in the quiet foothills of Boise, Idaho with my hubby of almost 22 years and my 7 year old identical twin boys. To be clear, the foothills are quiet... the boys are NOT! My boys are amazing and have grown my heart (and my patience) at least three sizes! I'm enjoying this season of life, embracing the little moments of being a full-time mom. And I'm loving my new independent life as a stamper of leisure. Haha! Well, I do manage to keep myself busy designing cards for several companies, but it's a completely different busy than actually running a company!

When Lydia asked me to join the team, my immediate response was #LifetimeAchievementUnlocked. It truly is a dream come true and I hope that I can inspire you as much as the designers who have come before have inspired me! Let the adventure begin.
