Hi everyone, I'm absolutely delighted to introduce my new sponsor, juliethefish designs!
Let’s get to know Julie, the shop owner of juliethefish designs. Julie lives in Central California with her hubby and three funny little boys, ages 5, 2 and 6 months old. She’s one busy lady and has an amazing husband who supports her compulsion to create. I love that! During the day she stays at home with her boys and at night teaches English as a Second Language to Spanish speaking adults. Yay, Julie! As a little girl she loved crafts: sewing classes, coloring, painting, and beading the day away. She still loves beads and paper and has dabbled in many crafts. Julie’s newest addiction is hand stamping sterling silver, as is obvious by her shop. As her loved ones sleep she hammers away. On her etsy profile, Julie says… “I am honored to make hand stamped keepsakes for customers all over the world. I am inspired by their lives, the stories they share, and their occasions for giving.” Can you say WOW! I seriously love this. And let me just say that her creations are absolutely fabulous.
I’m going to showcase a few of “my” favorites from juliethefish designs and I’m sure you’ll agree. And let me say it was hard just to pick a few. Julie makes: necklaces, bracelets, earrings, rings, a special section "just for the guys", weddings, and custom orders. Plus you'll have to check out the section titled "extras".
|These are pretty darn cute.|
|This is my personal favorite and I'll be getting one with my inital and birthstone.|
|This is absolutely priceless and pretty cool for someone if you ask me! That special someone.|
|I had to include the bookmark.|

|The necklace is for Autism Awareness and for every necklace purchased Julie |
donates $10 to the Hope for Autism Foundation.

Julie relaxes by…I like to take bubble baths, go for a jog, or go to Hobby Lobby!
What's your ideal day night? My ideal day/night would be a day of travel with my family - exploring an international city unfamiliar to us.
Any fall fashion must-haves? A well worn, perfect pair of jeans.
Something quirky about yourself... I have been a vegetarian since I was 14.
