their story: it was a chance meeting in the summer of 2003. they quickly learned that they had a few things in common including a passion for creativity and a penchant for travel. they booked a couple of plane tickets to europe, traveled around six countries, and came back with one conclusion: they would have many more adventures together. bluejays & bumblebees is one of those adventures. brooke and justin are inspired by the places they travel, near and far, and design and make the artwork in their shop.
