Julip Made_quote of the week_3_17_14 Admittedly there has been some radio silence around these parts lately.  This quote pretty much sums it up.  I'm not sorry I stepped away and took some time to regroup, including a wonderful vacation and lifelong memories made with my family (some of which, I'll be sharing here soon).  I am sorry if I've left anyone wondering without explanation and I have missed creating for this blog. 

I'm a big culprit of saying 'yes' to too many things, all while trying to lead a 'balanced' life.  Between a busy few months for my day job, freelance clients, planning our wedding, and the blog among many other things, something had to give.  I was creatively drained.  Rather than try to force out lackluster content, I'd rather keep the integrity of this blog so I decided to take a break to renew my creative juices.  I'm also working on saying no more often, especially to projects that don't necessarily fit with the vision I have for myself or Julip Made moving forward.

This was a time to refresh, a time to live completely in the moment, and a time to make some progress on other projects and goals in my life.  Our wedding, now almost just six months away is slowly coming together with vendors falling into place and I couldn't be more thrilled.  Soon I'll be at the detail/DIY phase creating lots of goodies for the big day.  I debated whether to share it with you all here on the blog, but that would take away the surprise of the big day for our guests and the thrill of the reveal with you all post wedding.  I will however be sharing some of the wedding ideas that I don't end up using in addition to a host of other entertaining content.

With some other projects out of the way, expect Julip Made to be back with a bang and a slightly altered focus skewing even more towards entertaining and events, with some wedding and house updates sprinkled in.

Thank you lovely readers for your patience and looking forward to what the spring will bring!

Julip Made Oscar Party7 Although the Oscars are all about glitz and glam, to me, the perfect viewing party will achieve that without much fuss.  A flavorful popcorn bar paired with a champagne cocktail bar that offers a variety of options for your guests achieves that easy, but glam vibe.  This simple Oscars viewing party lets your guests sit back and enjoy the show with more than just your standard movie popcorn and soda.  More importantly, this party will take you minutes to prepare and let you enjoy the show with your guests.

Julip Made Valentines Day easy floral arrangement6 This is your fail-safe guide to an easy, affordable, and beautiful Valentine's Day arrangement.  Don't get me wrong, a dozen red roses are great and always welcome, but this arrangement adds a bit of interest and will impress the receiver with your arrangement prowess.  In terms of cost, I buy my flower's at Trader Joe's where each of these three flowers cost $5.99 or less.
