My Locket of the Day: Mixed metals, mom to some little Walsh’s, my faith to guide me, a sparrow because I think it’s my spirit animal, my favorite colors, some sparkle & some love.
1 hour into a 2 day event and I’m already crying!! A grandma made this locket about her 15yo grandson diagnosed with sarcoma last week. He is a hockey player with black and red team colors set to have his leg amputated after 10 rounds of chemo.
My reminder yesterday – locket full of dreams: flip flops to represent the move to FL, love note from my awesome guy, sail boat for our love of sailing, and a boat drink for a chill way of life and a future dream; camera dangle to remind me to capture the beauty in everyday.
When they say everyone has to start somewhere, it is true. On the left is the very first locket I ever created when I received my kit. I was so scared that I would not be able to be creative enough, or outgoing enough to sell anything. And look at where a year got me. The locket on the right was a recent one.
I got my fall Hostess exclusive from Origami Owl in the mail today and promptly I filled it with my hopes, dreams, life, love. This serves as a reminder to stop and smell the roses, focus on eternity and my kids, don’t be afraid of change ( the butterfly! ) and of course, savor the sweet things in life. It’s a pretty full locket, but that’s how my life is right now.
my planner locket, it’s close to my heart! my dad was just diagnosis with stage 4 non Hopkins lymphoma and he will start treatment soon, this is with me at all times to remind me how your life can change in a heart beat and we have to live life to its fullest loving it and cherishing each moment.
Today was the first day of school and these are the two lockets I wore today. The bracelet had all of my inspirational messages: big girl panties, say yes! (To being awesome), wishing on a star for the new year, and how I need to remember I’m a force for good for my students. more…
Just wanted to share that I changed up my heart locket that I carry in memory of my Dad and added the camping charm..He loved the outdoors and definitely loved to go camping as well as riding his motorcycle
Another testament to my fellow origamiowl designers. What an amazing company. Helping each other be a force for good. These are chains I’m bringing to the Pediatric oncology unit with the chemo comfort bags. Some donated, some I purchased. This company is always inspiring .
I’ve gained so much more from O2 than that. I’ve gained time with my five kiddos that all start with “K” (Kami, Karter, Kord, Kace and Baby Knox). Ive been able to have the time to teach a Bible Study and Kindergarten Sunday School. I’ve earned recognition, which as a SAHM doesn’t normally happen. more…
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy when skies are gray…. So many people have special memories of that song connected to their childhood and parenthood. Being able to capture a memory in a locket for one beautiful momma and her three girls is all I need to bring sunshine to my life today.
My father was diagnosed with ALS on Dec. 28th 2016. My father was always an extrememly hard worker who was highly motivated and skilled. He loves gardening, mopar, traveling, hunting, fishing, his grandkids and of course irish music. (my mother could do with out that last one lol) He has been a pillar of strength in my life for as long as I remember. more…
Today is an Amazing day! My little sister is graduating from college!! Meg, I am so proud of you. We may be 3,000 miles away from each other, but you are still my best friend. I love you and know that you are going to succeed at whatever comes next!
My memorial locket for my mama I change it out between lockets and go back and forth between wearing it as a bracelet or necklace but the theme remains the same! “LIVE IN THE MOMENT MAMA’S ORDERS
In an attempt too keep this pregnancy exciting and different, we are going to TRY and not find out the sex until they day he or she is born! Easier said than done, but I think we can do it!
My kids are my world and my motivation. They are the reason I get up in the morning – mostly because they want something or are hungry. 😄 But I love them dearly. Every locket tells a story and so this is my story. What’s yours?
#MyObsession right now.
Typewriter: because I tell stories and help others tell stories through jewelry
Sparrow: because I’m hopeful and because I have found a family in my community of fellow designers
Arrow: because I follow the path I set for myself and I’m excited for the journey
