Showing Off - Reader Features


Happy Wednesday Sugar Bee Readers! We’re Julie and Ashley Rae – the mother and daughter team behind the beaded jewelry shop, The Julrae Box – and we’re really excited to be stopping by. We design and create one of a kind jewelry – everything from necklaces, bracelets, and earrings to even special jewelry for your fridge! We have so much fun creating things together and sharing them with women all around the globe.

You guys are SO crafty, which made narrowing down our picks from this week’s Take-A-Look Tuesday super difficult! Check out what caught our eyes…

Jessi from Practically Functional made delicious looking Pink Lemonade Cookies. Pretty, refreshing and appealing! (And that tip on how to bake perfectly rounded cookies? Brilliant!)




The Coffee Table turned Office Desk over at Blissfully Ever After is such a great DIY project – combining two outcast pieces into one fabulous desk!



On Love, Pomegranate House, Talitha made these coconut shrimp for her hubby – even though she’s not a seafood fan – and they look yummy. The recipe sounds easy enough and we like that beer is included!  



Check out how easy this DIY Glitter Nail Polish is at The Crafted Sparrow! Super cute, cheap, and oh so easy! 


Catherine from Paisley & Polka Dot Threads shows us a fantastic repurpose of a discarded, roughly treated chair. The black paint/coffee sack combination really works well!



Ready for the kids to go back to school? Heather’s French Press has an excellent collection of food ideas for your young scholars! Pizza pops, sandwiches on a stick, mac and cheese muffins, food-colored noodles – all creative ideas sure to put smiles on kids and adults alike. 


How beautiful is this origami ornament? The post has clear and easily understood steps for those who want to try it themselves – we’re ready to give it a whirl! Find the details on Ashley’s Dandelion Wishes.

Kilee from One Little Momma shows us how to add a (temporary) pop of color to our bookshelves! It really makes us wonder why we didn’t think of that! Can’t wait to get started on this project!




This is such a great idea for friends and families to welcome a new baby! Head on over to My Inner Need To Create and you’ll find clear instructions help put this awesome idea within reach. Congratulations on your sweet nephew, Jessica!



Nancy from Small Things With Love shares a wonderful way to encourage creativity in your toddler and the photos prove how much fun it can be! 



We absolutely LOVE this antique dresser makeover! The combination of a dark stained top and aqua painted bottom is just perfect. Fall in love with it over on I Should Be Mopping The Floor.



And last but not least is a beautiful hanging votive planter from The Scrap Shoppe Blog. It’s a simple project, but with big impact!


Thanks for letting us hang out this afternoon, Mandy! We would love it if you crafty ladies jumped over to check out our shop! We’re always adding new items, so check back often! Have a great day – and keep crafting!
