I was so blessed about a year ago to reconnect with Julie through blog world. Her father was my youth pastor for several years when I was a youngster and made a dramatic impact on my life. I have such fond memories of their family and visiting her house the other day was like a sunny walk down memory lane. Julie’s friend Denise, who also went to our church back then, was able to be there too.   I can’t tell you how excited I was to be able to visit with them.   These girls are beautiful and just as wonderful as I remember them. Julie made a yummy lunch and then I got to tour her beautiful home.

Julie has a great blog called Less Than Perfect Life of Bliss and a neat canvas business called My Fine Art. After getting my digital files from Jessica, I knew I wanted a few canvases printed for the girls’ room. Julie’s prices are so much more affordable than anything I have found online. Plus, she’s just a sweetheart to work with and can do so many customizations.   I just love how they turned out and can’t wait to get to work on making the girls’ room special. I’m off to a good start.
They decided to move their twin beds together so it’s been a bit of a dilemna pulling it all together.

I had already seen many of Julie’s great projects but it was so fun to see them in person.

I love this jewelry organizer she made. I NEED that pink fabric.

….and her kitchen is absolutely dreamy!

Her whole house is dreamy and she’s so lovely and down to earth. You’ll love her, I know you will.

She gave me this canvas as a gift and I just adore it!! Stevie asked me why the heads were cut off.
Artsy? Hello?
Thank you so much Julie.
We love them all.

P.S. I was so sad Amy, Julie’s sister couldn’t join us. I always LOVED her too and her brother David. They were ‘little’ when I was in youth group and I always wanted to babysit and play with them. Those were the good ‘ole days!

  4. Edie! You are too kind to me. I LOVE that pic of the girls holding their canvas! I’ll remember our little luncheon for a long time. We can’t wait to do it again. And if you want some of that pink fabric, I know a little shop in Paris in the fabric district… 🙂

    P.S. Will you email me that pic of the 3 of us? 🙂

  5. Love all the house pics, she obviously has a fabuous home. I really like your bangs and your boots Edie, I wish it ever felt cold enough here to wear knee high boots. I guess I’ll save mine for our trip to Minnesota…this year it’s in December! I freeze when I go in October, so I’m not sure how I’ll survive the cold. :/

    Those blown up canvas prints are great, I’ve always wanted to do that. I’ll have to check out the link. Take care.

  6. Edie!!!! The canvases look GREAT! I do have to say…I love the “headless” photo I took, but the girls’ version is hilarious! If you have any other photos of the canvases can you email them to me? I am going to do a blog post about my clients’ art, showcased in their home. 🙂

  7. A few things in no particular order:

    – My closet has never ever looked that neat and organized on it’s best day. I think I have closet envy.

    – I saw a craft project for a similar jewelry “frame” on one of the site’s on your blogroll using a lovely green painted section of chicken wire. I know it sounds a little crazy, but was spectacular.

    – Your logo at the top of the page is broken for me again which is not said to stress you out, but I would want to know if it was me. Kinda like having spinach in your teeth.

    Enjoy the weekend!

  8. You’re friend Julie sounds so talented and I love all of her stuff! So happy for ya’ll that you all got to meet up together and spend happy times! I, too, love that jewelry organizer – – she should sell those on her Etsy shop too! 🙂
