About Julia raye
Hello, all! I am so glad that you are here! I'm Julia Raye, or just Raye as most know me, and I'm the one behind all things here at Julia Raye's Design Co. I'm an Email Marketer by day and a crafter by night as I work my two dream jobs. Creating has always been a part of me. I started out with boxes of markers and crayons, then moved on to my grandmas sewing machine and a learn to crochet kit as a gift from my parents for Christmas on year. It all took off from there. There wasn't a day I was't trying something new or bringing home another pillow that I made with my grandma after school. I even put together a "magazine" with all the things I could sell to people. I knew nothing other than "that would be cool to make." This was in 6th grade. Fast forward a few years and a lot of learning and now we have Julia Raye's Design Co., one of my dreams slowly coming true.
I went to the same small school from kindergarten to my senior year in George West, Texas. I played volleyball and softball and showed animals in 4-h during all of those years. Then, I went off to the big city of Austin to attend The University of Texas at Austin (hook'em). I graduated in May of 2017 with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing from the McCombs School of Business.
This little shop started during my second year at school and my dreams for it have continued to grow since then. In the beginning it was just simple items being posted to my Etsy shop website whenever I had the chance to make them. Now, I'm excited to have the time and knowledge to put work into it everyday to make it better.
Putting together the pieces for this shop bring me so much joy and I am so grateful that I get to create everyday and share it with all of you. I look forward to every day of this journey ahead!
