Pomegranate Time

I’m thinking I need to design something inspired by the stunning colors of these seeds… Some family friends gave my mom these gorgeous pomegranates that they grew organically in their yard. The seeds were so pretty, I had to take a picture of them before I dipped in. I didn’t think to photograph them whole though. The internet says we need to eat the seeds… Read More »Pomegranate Time

Fall Preview

How’s your summer? Yes, it’s still summer. But you don’t need me to tell you that autumn is around the corner. That doesn’t mean TOO much to me, as a weather spoiled SoCal gal, and like you, I do have heating in my home. But still, I’ll be launching some cozier looks for fall and winter, even as I move towards more year-round/seasonless looks overall.… Read More »Fall Preview

Featured On Allure.Com + PREVIEW Your CUSTOM DESIGN

I’ve been great, despite accidentally cutting my own hair into a mullet on Saturday afternoon. If you follow me on Snapchat, then you already know about that misfortune. I must’ve been feeling omnipotent following my AWESOME feature on, and believed I could actually razor cut some pretty yet edgy face-framing layers all by myself. I’m not feeling invulnerable anymore but I’m still very excited, happy,… Read More »Featured On Allure.Com + PREVIEW Your CUSTOM DESIGN

Do you hate hand washing your clothes as much as I do?

I’ve never liked hand washing. The only times I’d ever done it was when I had to spot clean something. I rarely heeded the advice of clothing labels that advised anything beyond “machine wash.” Instead, I’d sometimes dry clean them, but usually I’d just throw those items into the machine with the rest of my laundry. Of course I’d at least put those items in one of those… Read More »Do you hate hand washing your clothes as much as I do?

Stylish Organizing for the New Year

Do you make New Years resolutions? I don’t think I’ve ever made one before, but I do love how a new year feels so refreshing and open for possibilities for growth and expansion. This year, I still don’t have any “resolutions” but I AM setting some intentions and goals, and being tidy is one that I’m excited about. If you’re like me with the stay-tidy intention,… Read More »Stylish Organizing for the New Year

Spur & Goad: A New Creative Blog and Community

Spur & Goad is a collective of entrepreneurial makers and artists, founded by Bethany Ashmun and Inga Roberts. They launched less than two months ago and they already have SO MUCH rich and fascinating content about makers, places, and people. I especially love how they share the creative process of the people they profile. I’m proud to say that I was the featured maker in one of their first blog posts.… Read More »Spur & Goad: A New Creative Blog and Community

How Yoda Helped Launch My Business

Who’s excited to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens? I am. I’m not even a superfan, and I still got chills typing out those first sentences. In honor of the movie’s release, here’s a piece of related Amy Eve Jo history. In 2013, I became an aunt for the first time. I felt that my soon-to-be-born niece needed a Yoda hat and robe; perhaps I was moved by the… Read More »How Yoda Helped Launch My Business

Ready for the Holidays

We’re entering my first holiday season with the Amy Eve Jo shop, and I’ve been hard at work, making sure everything’s in place for you to have a pleasant experience. Here’s a quick overview of what I’ve implemented. Easy Returns I almost don’t want you to read this because, ideally, you’d never even think of returning any Amy Eve Jo item.  Luckily, I haven’t had… Read More »Ready for the Holidays

Playing Favorites in a Big Way

I’ve always been tickled by objects that are scaled up (huge) or scaled down (miniatures). When I was five, I loved fashion and dressing up. My big sister had Fashion Plates, which I thought was fun. But for me, I preferred the Little Van Goes Drawing Kit because it was smaller and therefore, cuter than the Fashion Plates. As for going LARGE-SCALE, I adore my long reach lighter,… Read More »Playing Favorites in a Big Way

More Unique Than Expected

I love that the baskets are made of reclaimed materials Did you know that the Amy Eve Jo baskets are made of reclaimed fabric remnants from the garment industry? That’s the biggest reason I chose to work with this yarn, because I liked saving this versatile material from being tossed in the landfill. However that means that the yarn’s availability is unpredictable. I knew that… Read More »More Unique Than Expected
