to the super funny, crafty, inspiring, and amazingly talented
Julie and I first met at a boutique last fall.
"Hi. I'm Julie. A nerdy, Jesus loving, recovering Diet Pepsi addict. I am all about flip flops on rainy days, English literature, going to the movies alone and anything turquoise. I can't be in the same room as someone eating a popsicle and the smell of ketchup or bananas makes me gag. I used to hate the color pink, but now have a houseful of girls. I am married to a youth pastor, wish I was still a teenager and would go back to high school in minute. I look forward to the day when vampires are "so 2009" and am not ashamed to admit my love for Star Wars or my passionate affair with Dave Matthews. I am a horrible sleeper, have a compulsive need to sew something every day and fight with my A.D.D. on a continual basis. I hate talking on the phone, or talking in general, but am the best listener you will find, fiercely loyal and way too sensitive for my own good. I don't remember the last time I was bored and having a day with nothing to do is what I dream about. My blog makes me look much craftier, cooler and funnier than I actually am. My shop feeds my fabric obsession.
I heart her messy flowers
and the fabulous fabric she uses for them.
Julie makes her messy flowers for people of all ages
so everyone can have a taste of their messy goodness.
And seriously, what is cuter than a baby in a headband?
Treat yourself to a pretty messy flower
because even grown ups need a little hair candy.
Ok now take a deep breath
and make sure your sitting down
because Julie is giving away your choice of item from her shop.
Seriously. Your choice!
How cool is that!
