She is fun, extremely helpful talented and provides safe environment as well if that is a concern. had a blast at latest event…..and her new 4 footed furry assistant was adorable too. Sooo highly recommend

Allison Welch Quincy, Illinois


Julie was wonderful to work with! She came to us with all the necessary supplies, set everything up and tore it down. Her teaching style is a mix of hands-on and “go with the flow” so each of us could make it our own. We had a blast, would definitely recommend!

Ashley Belden Quincy Paint Party


I always have such a good time when ever I attend a paint party. Julie is so helpful and so artistic. She always helps you out with whatever you need. I highly recommend if anyone is wanting to do a painting, or a party, or even just would like to order something, get ahold of Julie! She responds quick and is so kind!

Julie was awesome! She knew I couldn’t make it the night of her event, so she was kind enough to cut out the wood for me and talk me through doing it on my own. Her ideas are so fun:) Looking forward to working with her again!
