I saw one of these little beauties in a boutique in Arizona and just had to have it! The wheels started turning and my mother-in-law and I quickly created a pattern and after several attempts I discovered how to create the flower. When Becky and I started JuJuB we knew we had to raid our fabric stash and see how many we could come up with! Since we both have a ton of fabric, I'm sure we could have made a ton more!! We had to limit ourselves to about 20! Order one on our Esty shop!!

Becky and I found this gorgeous idea Ribbons & Lace in Arizona. When you have as many clips as we do, you have to have a cute place to put them. We pulled out our stash and dug for fun ribbon. We started with the darling pink girlie one. Then we had to do a fun colorful one. Lastly, I wanted to do this vintage black, white & brown one. I LOVE them all! Becky and I could not decide which one we liked the best!

In our invitation for our open house next week, we promised decadent jewelry. Here is a sneak peak at one of my FAVORITE THINGS!! I discovered these Scarlet Lime Watch bands a year go and fell in love. I got them as Christmas gifts for everyone and had to have three of my own. I love how pretty they are and the fun colors are truly inspired. The watch bands and faces come separately, so you can get as many fun bands as you want and match them to outfits or your mood. When I first got some I had to have the classic black and white one, but I also love my pink one that's a fun pop of color. Now, I have quite a few. (smile) I love wearing them to dress up an outfit or when I'm simply feeling playful. I'm so excited to share these with you!!
Cookies & Cream (this one is sold out, so this is the last one!)
I love blue and pink together and had to snatch this one up too! I told you I love these!
I have had my eye on this one for a long time and just had to get it!!! This one if my personal favorite!!
Becky stole this one to wear around. She LOVES red!!!
Come try them on in one week! We are offering them at a special sale price since we love you all so much. We have more coming in soon!!!!

I am pretty sure these Mini Felt Flowers will be in Heaven. My friend Stacie found these for me. Stacie, you deserve a HOLLA!
These come in all different colors.....these were just a few of my favorite....
I am thinking I'm going to put these on some bobby pins; but they'd be really cute on clips too. Hmmm, Decisions, Decisions.....
Remember our fun and vintage earrings seen here. Well of course Becky and I had to steal a few for ourselves. We just couldn't help ourselves. I had to have the smokey and vintage white earrings. Becky couldn't live without the lady bug and wedding lace earrings.

I have always loved scrap booking. Well maybe not always... my mom is the scrap book queen and would always get me supplies for Christmas. She kind of gave me the nudge in the right direction. The real kicker was when she got me my Cricut and I had my first darling daughter. I dove in and was hooked. I love journaling and telling our story through pictures. So when Becky and I started talking about making invitations, I quickly said, "I'll do it, I'll do it, I'll do it!!!" Becky was happy to let me run with it and here's what we ended up with! The more I fall in love with crafting the more I love mixing different mediums together. This was a fun mini project because I used paper, fabric, ribbon and sewed it all together. We both are feeling a little stir crazy due to the cold weather and wanted our invitations to explode with warm colors. We can't wait for spring! We also had to throw in a free clip for everyone to give them a tinny taste of what is to come. See you next Thursday 7-8:30 @ Juliana's. Come @ 7:00 for door prizes or feel free to drop in and check it out. We can't wait to see you all! Everyone is welcome!

So, I have been making these for YEARS....well, ever since I had my little Lexie who is 4 now. I actually took a fun class at this really cute store in Arizona...maybe you've heard of it? Ribbons & Lace? Anyway, I LOVE that store. Everytime I go to Arizona, I have to stop by. Some of these gems I picked up there last time I was in the neighborhood.
Like I said, Juliana and I are having this open house next week and we will have tons of these to choose from! These are your more traditional bows but with our funky flair. Don't these just make you smile?
These are our most typical sizes--big and small. Personally, I'm a fan of the big--but I always lean towards things that are more bold--you know, the things that make a statement....Ok OK! I like to show off! But if you've seen how cute my girls are, you know why!:) I know, I'm biased.;)
But seriously, Isn't this Mocha Stripe to die for?
Or this Hot Pink Houndstooth!?!
Gumball Pink Anyone?
This Yellow Sunshine makes me SUPER EXCITED FOR SPRING....I am so ready for permanent Sunshine!
And, here I am in my ridiculously messy craft room. No judging please! I can't be creative and clean at the same time! It's impossible--ask my husband! I have spent hours upon hours in here! Mostly during naptime and after hours....but don't you think it was worth it? Well, I DO!

So, jujuB is getting ready to throw it's first PARTY! Juliana and I are going to have an open house in about a week and a half and we have had to get our product ready. It's been crazy fun making tons of different things, and I think these burn flowers are one of my favorite things we make.
Are they not darling?
Pretty sure the zebra one is my favorite...
See how versatile they are? I LOVE to wear them, AND they look DARLING on my girls. Here's one on Lexie.....LOVE it!
I love Shay in pink....
Aren't they so Springy? I am so ready for bright colors and sunshine! So, if you are like me, and can't live without these, check out our etsy shop, or better yet, come to our party! March 3rd at Juliana's...7-8:30. You won't wanna miss it!

I just got back from a wonderful quick trip to Disneyland. It was exhausting; but there is something really rejuvenating and being able to just have pure fun. I couldn't wait to ride the roller coaster with my husband and take my girls to meet their favorite princesses. You will soon come to see that Becky and I have a passion for fun bows and accessories! My mom surprised me with these darling little bows she had made just for the occasion. I really do come by crafting honestly! Thanks mom, these were the perfect little touch!

My husband, Ryan, and I have been married for almost 7 years...crazy! So, we have had 8 Valentines' together. And honestly, Ryan is AMAZING at spoiling me on holiday's. I have ZERO complaints. This year I found this DARLING idea that I wanted to make for him. I found the idea from here at the Dating Divas.
Can you believe it's out of a muffin pan? I wrote something I loved about him for each number and slipped it inside.
Then, I asked my little 4 year old daughter to tell me what she loved about her dad and I snuck her little slip of paper in too. :)
That there is my man! He of course loved it! Yes, it was cheesy--but isn't that what Valentines Day is for? He says he loved what I said, but truthfully, I think he LOVED what Lexie had to say more. It was so fun to make and a great project to do with my girls. Shay, obviously wasn't up for pictures at that moment. :)
Here is one of our latest projects, vintage earrings! We found this great tutorial from Disney at Ruffles and Stuff. Here is a link Ruffles and Stuff.
We were just going to make a few.... and well you see what happened!!!! Like usual, Becky and I got a little carried away. What started out as one craft night turned into 2 and a few late nights on my part! We both love ribbon and lace and beads, so we had a blast with this project because it combined so many of our favorite things. You've already met Becky, isn't she great? I couldn't do this all with out her! Well I guess I better introduce myself. I'm Juliana. I've always loved "old stuff" and I love to mix it with fun pops of color. These earring are a great example. I absolutely adore the names we gave to the different pairs. Some of the names are lemon drops, vintage lace, summer berry, and lingerie! Check out our Etsy shop to see which is which and to grab one for your own!!!

I had to share some pics of my new FAVORITE flower! Felt Dahlia's! Are these not absolutely darling? And so springy? With the weather being so cold, I have spent many hours indoors with my girls and while they have been playing dress-up I have been making these babies. Now, don't be fooled by their gorgeousness...Although these blooms look simple to make, well they are actually, but they take FOREVER! While cutting them out, I watched all three Anne of Green Gables movies, AND all three Twilight dvd's. And then while I assembled them I listened to my i-phone playlist I think 3 times through--yeah, there are over 50 songs on my playlist, which really needs some updating now....Hmmmm, better get my hubby on that. :)
They were worth it though! Don't ya think? I guess there is a reason to be thankful for the snow. I can admit it, but just this once!
We are jujuB! Juliana and myself love to craft. Okay, we don't just love to craft, we are kind of obsessed with it. We get together just to craft at least once a week. Truthfully, since we started jujuB we do it way more than that, but I don't want to sound so obsessed that you think we are crazy. :) Ok, I am a little crazy, and Juliana is what keeps us all together. That's why we are such a great team!
Aren't we cute? Becky is on the left(that's me!) and Juliana is on the right. Yeah, yeah, she's the cute blond one. :) We took a picture of our very first 'craft meeting'. So, when we look back after all these years we can look back where it all started! Hopefully my hair looks a little better. :) We hope to show you all our cute stuff we make, (which is alot) as well as what inspires us to craft. You could say this is our journey of creating things together. Hope you like it! If you don't, that's ok, just lie and say you do! We'll all be happier!
