Welcome to our 5th installment of the Spotlight series from Sophie n Me.
Today we are spotlighting....
1.Your name and name of your shop(s)? My name is Julee Ahlman and my shop name is “Surf and Sand”
2. Day or night job if you have one. I have a full-time job at Kaiser Permanente as an optician, which means I try to create and take photos in the evenings. 3. Where do you get the inspiration for your designs/shop? I lived in Hawaii for almost 20 years and I love the ocean and bright tropical flowers. I’m obsessed with bright colors!
4. What was your favorite book as a child? “The Island of the Blue Dolphins” by Scott O’Dell. Hmmm....I may want to read it again. I haven't thought about that book for a long time!
5. What did you have for breakfast today? Cottage cheese, ½ of a bagel and 2 clementines. But that's only because it's Saturday. I usually have string cheese, while I'm driving to work. Stormy Seas Necklace 6. Finish this sentence "Once upon a time...." There was a woman named Julee, that won the lottery and moved with all her family and friends to French Polynesia. She lived happily ever after. Glass and Seashell Bracelet
7. Friends or Seinfeld? Seinfeld! T.V. just isn’t the same! 8. What makes you giggle like a child? Spending time with my friend of 40 years (Yikes! I’m getting old) As soon as we’re together, I’m suddenly an adolescent. Her husband just shakes his head, when he watches us together. Pink Chalcedony Earrings 9. What don't people know about you? I took accordion lessons as a child. But please don’t ask me to play now. 10. How many hours do you spend a day searching for stuff on Etsy? More then I’m willing to admit!
