Bring out the holly

We have some great new Academy J stuff in the works.  We hoped to have it online before Christmas, but due to finals, Christmas, and the fact that one of us is getting married (!)... we may have to postpone it until after the holidays.  

Fortunately, however, if you are in the area, we will be selling our products (including some of our new stuff) at the My Girlfriend's Closet Boutique in Bountiful this weekend.  You can shop Friday and Saturday (December 11 and 12) between 11 am and 8 pm at 2200 south Orchard Drive.  This boutique may or may not be a great place to find some great Christmas gifts, just sayin'.

This Saturday, November 7 we will be selling our products at the Bijou Market. This market, held at 501 North 900 East in Provo, UT features over 40 local vendors selling their own unique handmade merchandise. We sold at a previous Bijou Market over the summer and loved it! Come check it out and find some great Christmas gifts while you're at it.

We also just may have some unique, never-before-seen products of our own making their first appearance this Saturday.

AJ Giveaways

So we're a little new to the blogging world. We have a long way to go with it, but we are learning a lot about how everything works and are having a blast with it. We have even been featured a few different places... Check them out here and here. Both of these sites are doing giveaways of Academy J merchandise - how great is that?

It's almost here....

Academy J has some big news (well for us at least) ... is officially in the works. We've said it before, but this time it is really happening. Our goal is to have the website up and running by the end of next week so be sure to check it out.

(So it turns out creating a website isn't the easiest thing in the world. This is me (Jessica) sitting in one of my design classes working on the website instead of a class project).
