JO DY BO RO UGH S FOUNDER — FLY MONKEY Fly Creative business spotlight


I started sewing around the age of 20 — kind of late to the game, compared to others. My grandma had sewn my entire life, so I had been around it, but had never touched a sewing machine. I have been a creative person since childhood, always involved in art and singing. My grandma had taught me how to crochet and make things, and when I told her I wanted to tackle sewing, she was really excited and thrilled to help. She was a big part of my sewing start and now I continue to keep her close to my heart. After she passed, I inherited her sewing machine and table, with the drawers untouched, all the contents just as she had left them. More times than I can count, when needing some random supply, I’ll say, “Let’s see if Grandma has one,” before I start digging in those drawers.


I do not sew on that machine, but it is beautiful, and such a special part of my sewing room. My decision to sew began one evening, when I decided I wanted to try to make a quilt. That is how it all started! Looking back at that night in my apartment, with my fabric laid out on the floor, using a piece of cardboard I had cut into a 12-inch-square templet, I have to laugh — I knew nothing about sewing! I realized after looking at something sewn, that if I put the right sides together of two fabrics, I could make a nice seam. The fact of the matter is you always have to start somewhere. Start with one piece, add another, and another, and before you know it, you have something bigger, beautiful and functional. Whether a quilt block, a simple pattern, a first post on your business social media, or your first big order, there is always a first step! This was pretty much my process with bag making as well. That first pattern seemed impossible, but I started with one piece, added another, made mistakes and corrections, and in the end, had a nice little bag. Just like with my quilts, practice made perfect. I started with simple, one-zipper pouches. They were good practice, but after making several, they got boring. So, the next step was bigger and more intricate. Again, the patterns were very intimidating, but the process was the same — one cut, one stitch, until you have a whole piece. I was hooked! I still enjoy quilting, but bags have become my passion for several reasons. Although still time consuming, bags are generally less so than quilts. They are something that people can use on a daily basis, and from a business standpoint, they leave the home and can be seen by several other people. Because they are less time consuming, individually, the price per piece comes down and they are more appealing to a larger audience. They are also just a ton of fun to make!


Here at Fly Monkey Fly, I create handmade bags, pouches and purses. I have premade items that are posted for sale and available for immediate shipping, but I also do custom projects. Ordering a custom-made bag is a great way to ensure that you are getting a perfect gift for someone or yourself. Customizing a bag gives a person the opportunity to choose just the right fabric or alter a pattern to their specific needs. For example, many of my customers have chosen to add a crossbody strap to purses to fit how they like to carry them. I can change the length of straps, add pockets, and in a lot of cases, change the size of the overall bag. These features are just a great way to make the project perfect for the customer’s needs. Handmade gifts, over the years, have become my go-to. I love the process of making things, but really enjoy how people react when they receive something handmade. The appreciation shown to me, for a craft that I so enjoy, is a gift to me as well. That is really how Fly Monkey Fly came into existence. After gifting so many things over the years, and getting such heartfelt responses, I thought maybe more people would be interested. Any maker knows that you can only make so much stuff and have it lying around. So, I decided to put my creations “out there� and see if I had any takers!



Fly Monkey Fly is in its infancy, but I have spent almost 25 years getting to this point. Fly Monkey Fly officially started this last summer. I have, so far, shown my products on my Facebook and Instagram pages. The response from these social media outlets has been very encouraging, and I have had several custom orders placed from my listed bags as well! I have recently started the process of setting up an Etsy store in order to reach an even larger audience, and to help streamline the shopping and purchasing experience for my customers. My goal is to produce many more, ready-to-ship items for the shop. I am very excited about this next step! As I said, I’ve spent almost 25 years getting to this point. There have been many successes and failures along the way. It doesn’t happen overnight, and the first try, still to this day, doesn’t always go as planned. If you are thinking about taking up a craft, do it and keep doing it! It will only get better with time. I ran across a quote recently that really struck a chord with me. It went something like, “Masters only become masters after failing more times than a novice has started.” This is so true! Makers are a community, and I truly enjoy how we all generally share and celebrate each other’s successes and failures. It’s how we all learn and get better. I have a ton of other bag makers and quilters that I follow on social media and my two best friends are very successful makers as well. The idea, material, and experience sharing happens on a weekly basis.


This is integral to my success in all the projects that I do. If you are someone who is seasoned in the craft you love, or someone who just thinks they might want to try it, seeking out communities with similar interests is crucial in my opinion! You can learn from the old sages, and you may find that, regardless of your skill level, that you can offer advice, or your own experiences, to others as well. Quality and craftsmanship are very important to me. I have spent a lot of time researching what other bag makers have used successfully and what to avoid. Providing well-made, beautiful products is what is at the heart of Fly Monkey Fly. I graduated from WSU Fine Arts Department in 2006, so the design of a piece, and the fabric choices, are always in the forefront of my mind when it comes to making my bags and purses. I also have a background in interior design, which leads to my day job; I manage Higginson’s Home Center and Mattress Outlet, here in Pullman. I have been very fortunate to have been with Higginson’s for almost 19 years. Many of you may even know me from there! Some of my bags have been made with the discontinued fabric swatches that I have been collecting all these years. You may even see a bag I have listed made out of the same fabric on your sofa pillows! I knew that I would eventually find something to do with all of those samples that I couldn’t bear to part with. From the business side of things, I have a few things from my past experiences that have helped with the start-up of Fly Monkey Fly. While at WSU, my focus was graphic design. This has been very useful in creating my logo and the graphics needed for my business. My extensive experience in customer service, along with the first-hand experience of managing a community driven, local business, has been crucial to understanding how a successful business is run with integrity.


My years of working with the public at Higginson’s has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of the people in our community. Pullman is a great place to live, and that has a lot to do with the people who live here. I’m so excited that I have been given the chance to share this love of mine. I look forward to working with the community in a different capacity, although maybe involving some of the same fabric! Last, but not least, what does Fly Monkey Fly mean? Well, I think it is important that a person pursue, and celebrate, what makes them feel like they’re awesome. That is what sewing has done for me; and I think that those monkeys made the Wicked Witch feel a little like she was pretty rad too!

Fun Facts About Jody Boroughs : I cannot speak any other languages, but I love to sing. I am right-handed. I wanted to be a figure skater when I grew up (funny to many friends and family) because just walking, in general, can sometimes be challenging for me. I have, over the years, been known to fall down… a lot!

The Importance of


1. SIMPLIFY Life is chaotic enough, so when listing your home create a simple design and declutter as much as possible. Do you really need to have all of those cooking utensils out on your kitchen counter 24/7? Or can you find a drawer where you can easily get to them after your home is shown to potential buyers? A simple design creates an environment that relaxes those who walk through the front door, allowing them to see how much work you have done to get it ready to put on the market. A great way to do this is by renting a storage unit! Remove items that aren’t needed on a daily basis and you will be amazed at the reactions!

2. DEPERSONALIZE Yes, this is still your home, and this is something that is difficult to do during the transition of selling and moving. However, the key is allowing your potential buyers to envision their personal items in the living room — where they can put their kid’s trophies on display and where they can place the dining table that has been in their family for four generations. Be careful not to make it look too stark. Keep some minor décor pieces to give the home a personality that attracts the right market. This can be a difficult task, but our agents are here to help and guide you through what can stay and what should go!

3. LIGHTING When you turn on a light, it creates an inviting atmosphere for the guest, or potential buyer, to enter your home. This is very important, especially this time of year! Many showings during the week are after 5pm, after the sun goes down. Even the sweetest home can look dark and uninviting if the lights are turned off and the entry is difficult to navigate in the dark! This is a simple but effective step. If you are aware of a scheduled showing, turn on all of your lights and ensure the exterior lights are on. If a showing is last minute, that is what our hired real estate agents are for! We get there a few minutes prior to turn on the house lights and get it “show ready� before the potential buyer walks through the door.

4. KEEP IT CLEAN There is no such thing as a home that is too clean for a showing! With the weather turning around (thank goodness!) that also means a clean yard. It is said that potential buyers make a decision about a home within the first 30 seconds of seeing it; that is why curb appeal is so important to get your home sold for the highest amount! If you do not have the time, expertise, or simply do not want to do a full deep clean inside and out, reach out to us! We have plenty of contacts to choose from to get your home in tip-top shape, to get it sold fast!

Thinking about listing or purchasing a home this Spring? Let us help!

It’s this time every year, as the snow begins to melt (hopefully!) and the tulips start to peek out of the ground, that we get the urge to rid our house of all the junk that has accumulated over the last year. I think there is a direct correlation in the Pacific Northwest between the new, more frequent sun breaks, and the desire to lighten up our homes. It’s the time we put all the heavy blankets and thick coats away, and allow the light to fill in. With that can come a bit of an overwhelming task, because let’s be honest — it’s not always easy to purge unused perfectly good items or put away that sentimental blanket your grandma knit for you. This is where I come in. While I can’t tell you what exactly to purge and what to keep, I can offer this easy three-step process that I used on my very own hall linen closet shown here. Keep in mind, while I’m applying this specifically to a closet, you can apply these steps in every room of your home.


PURGE: Personally, my closet is full of curtains from our previous

home, a multitude of mis-matched sheets, and an excessive amount towels. Mostly because when I get new towels, I just shove the old ones in here, but hey I may need them at some point when I have a plethora of overnight guests, right? Not likely, but it could happen, I suppose. The reality is I don’t need them, and by donating them they will likely end up in a home where there is a real need for them. Same with my old curtains and random bits in here that I haven’t touched since we moved in two years ago. Time for them to be loved in a new home. As I go through my purging process, I make four piles: donate, keep, trash, and a maybe pile. The first three are clear on what to do with them, but the “maybe” pile is usually the one I leave until I’ve gone through everything and then revisit at the end. I don’t want to stall my sorting process by staring at one piece for 30 minutes trying to decide what to do with it. Usually by the time I’m done with everything I’m able to go back to it and make a quicker decision. It feels good by the end to see how much I’ve been able to get out of the way.

STORE: Now you’ve done the

hard part and said goodbye to the pieces you just don’t need. You will have items left that need to go back in the closet, plus your heavier winter things that have been out and now need to be stored during the warmer months. My favorite way to organize both open shelving and closets are with baskets. You can fill them with smaller items to help contain them and clear the shelves of clutter. Also, pieces such as towels stored in the baskets helps eliminate the drooping piles that are inevitable when stacking too many items. Baskets are also great for placing pieces that are not coordinating with the colors that are visible. For example, I have our bright pink and blue beach towels as well as my kids cartoon towels in a basket to keep my color palette neutral (my personal preference but choose a color palette you love!). Having a combination of basket storage and neatly stacked pieces helps with finding items easily, and it adds depth and texture, making your closets more visually appealing.


STYLE: Finally! The fun part,

making it look pretty! Now that you’ve decided what to put in baskets and what to keep out, it’s just a matter of arranging them. I like to balance the baskets on the shelves, separating them so not all the baskets are on one side, making that side feel heavy. Splitting the baskets up with some neatly stacked towels, possibly a faux plant, and other décor, creates balance on both sides of the closet. You can see on a couple of the shelves, the baskets don’t go all the way across — I alternated which sides the baskets were on to achieve visual balance. It may seem silly to put décor in a closet and in some cases, you may not have the extra space to do it. But if you do, it really takes the closet up a notch, potentially, not treating like a dumping ground. When things look nice, we are just more likely to take care of them to keep them looking that way, pretty simple right?!

Workouts in Pullman

Photo Credits: Emily Popchock Photography

Use the Parks Parks here in town offer lots of room and great structures to use in your workout. Let the kids play (or use them as added weight resistance), while you get in a functional and time-savvy workout! Set a timer on your phone for 30 seconds work, then 15 seconds rest and add some jams to keep you moving.

Bench —Dips: Keep hands positioned tight to your rib cage, press up and lock elbows out at the top, bring it back down to a 90 degree angle at your elbow slowly.


—Butterfly kicks (abs): Sitting on the edge of the bench, hang both legs out in front, balancing and keeping abs tight. Using your hands on each side for balance, kick feet six inches in a scissors motion. Get creative and go horizontal, vertical, or try writing words with your toes pointed, holding the same position.

—Elevated push-ups: find a structure to place hands a little wider than shoulder width apart, feet hip width (challenge yourself with one foot raised). Lower your body until your chest touches the structure and then press up.


—Step ups: step up with the weight in your heel and squeeze buns at the top.

Swings —Planks: either set both elbows or both hands onto the swing and find your balance. Keep your feet close and hold your abs tight. You want your back as flat as possible and shoulders engaged. Keep hips tucked and bellybutton in tight towards the spine. Hold that position. Switch it up by doing a side plank with one arm or one elbow on the swing or on the ground for more stabilization.


—Lunges: in the reverse lunge position, set rear foot on the swing and press hips back into a reverse lunge until the front knee is bent at 90 degrees. Keep weight in your heels — keeping your knee lined up with your big toe — all the way up on front foot and squeeze buns at the top.

Monkey bars —Pull-up variations - start at the bottom with arms fully extended; the angle of bar to torso will determine resistance and which muscle group you use. Switch it up with many different pulls: wide grip, chin up, close grip. Pull your body up towards the bar and slowly bring it back down to extended position. This slow eccentric movement (bringing back down) will build strength for your pullups! Do as many rounds as time allows. Any time working out in is better than no time working out in. 15 minutes is better than zero. Work with what you have.

Utilize stairs around campus If you want a quick and efficient cardio work out, hit the stairs (there are a lot of options around and on campus!) Set your timer for an allotted time and keep moving until you hear that buzzer. If you want to switch it up, here are some ideas. —Walk every stair - 10 jump squats at the top, walk down —Walk every other stair - 10 curtsy lunges at top, walk down —Run stairs - 10 body weight squats at the top, walk down

M EET K I N Z IE B R OW N As a mom of three and an ever-changing schedule, I know first hand how it’s important to look for opportunities to work out. Often it’s most time efficient to fit exercise in with things you’re already doing. Going to the park? Do a workout like this. Utilize those 20 minute gaps between pick up, drop off and other tasks. Train yourself to look for opportunities. Coupling that with nutritious food choices adds up!





That don’t pay off: The side effects of diets no one talks about By: Anna Grindeland

The new year has come and gone and you may or may not still be on that diet you started as a New Year’s resolution. There is no need to be discouraged if you aren’t, because the truth is: diets don’t work. In this article I hope to urge you to ditch the diet and consider making non-diet resolutions that may actually improve your health.

Diet culture is successful at making money, but not at making us healthier. Whether it be based around only eating certain foods (a certain 30, perhaps?), avoiding certain food groups altogether, or embarking on a strict nutrient tracking program, diets are all diets and carry with them some harmful side-effects. Individuals who go on multiple diets over time, also called “yo-yo dieting,” are more likely to suffer from heart disease, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, and long-term weight gain. Even if you see weight loss in the shortterm, 97 percent of dieters will regain more weight than they’ve lost within four to five years, according to longterm health surveys.

According to data from the CDC, nearly half of all Americans go on weight-loss diets each year and spend $33 billion on weight-loss products only to be told they don’t have

Short-term diets, otherwise known as “crash diets,” can lead to muscle loss, which in turn, slows the body’s metabolism and leads to the accumulation of more visceral body fat — the kind of body fat linked to metabolic syndrome.

enough willpower, or that they just need to buy three more months’ supply for it to “work.”

That’s right, folks: we do not fail diets; diets fail us.

The truth is, if diets “worked,” we would not continue to put money and time into these programs and products year after year.

No need to feel discouraged — there are a number of habits you can resolve to do to improve your health — any time of year.



Resolve to cook more. Start with a small, reasonable goal. Cook one more night per week than you usually do. Need some cooking inspiration? Try a new online recipe finder. A few of my favorites are the New York Times Cooking app, Food52.com and Delish.com.


Resolve to eat breakfast. Eating breakfast is linked with better attention, more energy, and a healthier body weight. A quick and healthy breakfast can be as simple as a handful of trail mix, a banana with peanut butter, eggs and toast, or oatmeal topped with fresh berries.


Rather than restricting your diet, try introducing a new food. You can start with one new ingredient each week. Get curious! Online recipe finders and food guides can make it easy to find a recipe for anything.


Resolve to ditch the diet mentality. We are told that taking up a diet is the righteous, wholesome, and self-promoting thing to do, which is just plain false. You can care about your health and say no to diets; it might just be the healthiest thing you do this year.

Heather’s is the best of the best and she’s constantly learning, teaching and leading. There is honestly no one better than her. — www.labellasalonspa.com

NICOLETTE — Poppy Salon @nicolettered

—She always makes the experience relaxing and she does the best on my blonde hair!

—Nicolette hands down! Before I went to Niccolete, I had the worse experience with “professionals”. After the first appointment I knew I’d go back there for life! Thanks for taking care of my stubborn hair!

— I box-dyed my hair for years and years after bad experiences at professional salons. She was the first I went to after that, and she always does such amazing work on my hair. I trust her completely and would recommend anyone to her!

@nicolettered at @salonpoppy is the most amazing stylist I’ve ever met and had do my hair. I have always left happy with my hair! It’s so amazing what she can do, especially when I give her the reins and tell her to do whatever she likes with my hair. I have always gone in to get crazy, wild colors done, and she goes above and beyond to make it fun, different, vibrant, and definitely a head turner when people see it. Not only is she amazing with her skills, she is also kind, funny, and a great person to be around! The atmosphere of the salon is just so welcoming and happy, and Nicolette is part of the reason for that; she always has a smile on her face, and you can just see the passion radiate off her that she has for helping people make their hair healthy and beautiful!

—Nicolette is seriously amazing! I wish I still lived in Pullman so I could get my hair done by her. Perfect EVERY. DANG. TIME.
