Joy's Hope Giveaway!

I'm so very excited to introduce you
to the super funny, crafty, inspiring, and amazingly talented
Julie of Joy's Hope.

Julie and I first met at a boutique last fall.
From the first time I saw her super cute stuff,
I knew she had to be some sort of creative genius.
I was right.
Just check out her blog and see for yourself.
And if being uber crafty isn't enough,
she is also hilarious, encouraging, helpful and all around amazing.

Meet Julie.

"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.
Peace out, girl scouts."

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?

This messy flower headband is sure to cure even the worst case of B.H.D. (Bad Hair Day).


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!
