The holidays are always so crazy! I’m almost done with my 13-day-in-a-row streak at my job, and I’m definitely excited to have some time off. The holiday season is always very hectic, and very demanding. Even still, I am glad that I was able to squeeze some time in to decorate my apartment this year (my kitchen is super cute!), as well as get Ruby July moving forward. I have a good break from work over the next two weeks, and I’m excited to do some more research into the project, as well as get some designs going! Can’t make any prints without any designs, now can we? Anyway, I thought I would write a quick post to update things a bit, and let everyone know that there will be a lot more progress over the next few weeks. Most of it will still probably be more behind the scenes, as there’s a lot that goes into creating a successful venture. I’m still keeping positive and looking forward to the future of Ruby July. But first, CHRISTMAS!!! Happy holidays to you all! See you in 2013!!!
Oh, hey. Hello!
My name is Jessica, and it’s great to meet you. This is officially the beginning of Ruby July, a fine art and design studio. But first, a little bit about me. I’m a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. I moved to Minneapolis upon graduation, and have been stuck in a full-time-job kind of rut. I’ve been looking to put my talents (and degree… sigh) to good use, and slowly warmed up to the idea of creating my own side business. So here we are, and here is Ruby July. My goal was to primarily design and create custom screen prints, for a variety of needs. Initially, I enjoyed the thought of creating them as birth or wedding announcements. Now, my once-dormant-brain has spun into a whirlwind of ideas. A whirlwind, I tell you. This is hopefully, only the beginning. I’m really only in the planning stages right now, but I can’t wait to see where this will lead. I can’t wait to share my ideas and prints with you, and I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them. Please keep an eye out for more updates (and products!) from Ruby July. Thanks so much!
