My Blue Room Earrings

Julie Broberg is an American living in Denmark.   We met one year ago in April when I stumbled upon her Flickr account and was mesmerized by the photos she had posted.   I wrote asking what camera she used which led to a friendly exchange of emails and an invitation for me to visit her blog Moments of Perfect Clarity   It may sound corny and cliche, but I was so inspired by her words and images and unbridled creativity that a month later I created this here bit 'o writing. 

When Julie declared me a blog crush last May, that I was it.  I had become a firm disciple of Julochkaism*.   (*Julochkaism:  A doctrine I just this second made up whose principles embody: "writing as the new praying", art journaling, retreats know as "blog camp"and taking photographs of shoes, eyeballs and daily life).

In the past year Julie as been responsible for depleting my savings account has inspired me to purchase my Nikon D60 and MacBook Pro.  The only reason I don't have an iPhone is because AT&T isn't my cellphone provider.   If this pattern continues, I may find myself buying a 17-acre farm in the future.  Check out her latest project.  It's remarkable and I'm so glad that I only have to read about it and not actually get in there and clear cobwebs. 

Last December, Julie held a  contest of sorts for what she considered the best thoughts on the meaning of one of her photographs.  To my utter amazement, I won (scroll to the bottom this post to read about it).    Julie promised a handmade prize and sure enough, it arrived a few weeks ago.  I've been wearing it ever since.

Thank you Julochka for the Blue Room Earrings (named for her studio) made by your talented little hands.   More importantly, thank you for enriching my life in the past year with your constantly evolving creativity and your friendship.  I can't wait to see what you get up to in 2010.

oh man, i'm blushing! they say we find the people we need when we need them. i'm very happy you found me - i've learned so much about using essential oils to enhance my creativity and help me relax - and find myself doing so on a daily basis.

and i forgot that you found me via flickr and not via the BoN thing. thanks for reminding me of that.

and thank you even more for these kind words.

I too have become a disciple of Julochkaism. I read her blog everyday and she inspires me constantly. I even suggested my husband make me a craft studio after seeing so many lovely pictures of "the blue room"

Oh the earrings are soooo sweet. What beautiful colors. I love the white metal too. What a lovely surprise. I can imagine that every time you where them you will feel the love. Yea!

Boy did I get a giggle out of the "Julochkaism doctrine"...Boy do we women know how to love...give us a computer and what do we do? We send out love into the world.

Blessings Liz.
