New Beginnings

Julaan Creations is diving right in and creating new things by delving into social media. Facebooks and twitters and blogs... OH MY!

What is Julaan Creations you ask?

Julaan Creations is a Canadian company run by three wild, creative women looking for a change from their usual 9-5. The company is based in Kamloops the gem of the province of British Columbia.

Julaan is a combination of the three partner's first two initials: Julie, Laurel, Ann. Desperate? Maybe but it had a ring to it.

Pregnancy is a very special time and we're delighted to play a part with our advent calendar. We believe the maternity advent calendar and sibling advent calendar is the perfect gift for the expectant mother and expectant sibling.

Advent from the latin word adventus meaning "coming" it is the period of expectant waiting and preparation for a celebration. There is nothing more worthwhile celebrating than the birth of a baby.

Through our own experiences and those of our friends we realize how important it is to involve children early in the pregnancy. The sibling calendar was born so that your children can share in the excitement of your pregnancy. Imagine the conversations you can have with your children when they open the window that says "***" and their joy at finding a baby animal sticker to match the beautiful African animals on the front.

The idea was born during a social evening where one of the group was pregnant and unable to resist turning to the next page in her pregnancy by the day book. The anticipation and excitement reminded us of our children opening their Christmas advent calendars and the idea was born but what to put in the window. The ideas for the contents of the windows ranged from quality chocolate (who doesn't love chocolate - pregnant or not? to other edibles then finally a consensus between three women was reached and the maternity bracelet where every week of your pregnancy is celebrated was created. The bracelet created from the windows of the calendar can either be worn or kept as a keepsake in the baby book.
