Hi I am Julie Spinks the Owner and Maker behind Ju Ju Creations.
After 15 years as a Senior Manager for a Large Retail Company it was time, after the birth of my second child, to try a new adventure that would allow me to work around the commitments of my home and family life whilst utilising my creative passion that came from my studies in Art and Textiles.
Like so many parents before me I found it hard to let go of the many baby clothes and the sentimental value they held, so I was going to box them up and put them into the attic! Sound familiar? But I didn’t like the thought of them being out of sight, so I decided to put my sewing and artistic skills to the test and that’s when I made my first memory bear from both the boys baby grows they had outgrown. I then got several requests from friends to make them a bear and that’s where I’m at today, 4 years later making memory bears, quilts, cushions in fact anything that brings the cherished clothing to life.
