BIO: “I am juju. A hapa haole born in Salt Lake City (not mormon tho) but raised on the tropical island of Guam. My mother is Japanese, and my father is Caucasian (with French and English roots). I am Married to my best friend (Ryan) and we are living in Sunny San Diego.
My ongoing love affair with crafting started when I was a child. I just love to create things, and seem to get my hands dirty in all sorts of projects! Sewing, knitting, jewelry making, print making to name a few.
In July of 2007, I became a stay at home mom to a delightful little girl. Her name is Rio – yes, like the Duran Duran song I put my career on hold to be a stay at home mom. Only then did I realize how utterly hard it is to find cool baby clothes out there. I learned how to make fun stuff on my own in hopes to share it with others.
FYI (since some people seem to care): I am happy to report that we live in a smoke free environment, but not pet free – we have 2 loving cats in our home. (Although, I do try my best to keep them away from my projects.)”
