$25 Origami Owl giveaway!


This is another giveaway that I'm just SO excited to share with you all!  

Origami Owl is a new custom jewelry company.  It is unique because you can build your own necklace with their lockets and charms.  Their necklaces are really cute and definitely one of a kind!  

Here is a little bit more about Origami Owl:

Origami Owl was founded by a 14 year oldentrepreneur. Inspired by the desire to create jewelry that would be beautiful,meaningful, whimsical and fun, Isabella Weems launched the company with thegoal of saving enough money to buy her first car. In 2010 she introduced the“Living Locket”, a necklace that can be customized with meaningful charms thatrepresent things that are important to you. From humble beginnings at homeparties, the success of Origami Owl quickly grew in fanfare and today Weems’ businessmodel is replicated by Independent Designers nationwide. “Women absolutely lovecreating unique pieces of jewelry that reflect their own style. We closelyfollow the latest styles to ensure that each item in our exclusive line is fashion-forwardand on-trend,” said Isabella Weems, Origami Owl’s Founder. 


I chose the aqua wish locket.  It came in this adorable "as you wish" packaging.  Seriously, I thought it was so cute, I had to take a picture first before I could even take it out! 



And here it is with even more cute packaging!  Black and white chevron with aqua?!?  YES, please. :)  
Anyway, it is an actual locket that opens up and you can write your wishes and dreams on the inside.  It also has a tiny cute little pearl beside it.  



Here is another example of the peach locket being worn.  The papers on the other side are what comes inside the locket for you to write your wishes on.  I love the length of this necklace too.  I feel like a great necklace can definitely help to complete your outfit and this one really does that for me.  



So, as I was saying earlier, one of the really great things about Origami Owl is that you can design your own necklaces with their lockets and charms.  Here are just a few examples of those too. 





Aren't they all so cute?!?!  These would also make a cute gift too!  Make sure to check out the website here and see all of the fun designs!

My friend, Stephanie, is a new designer with this company.  She is offering one lucky person here a $25 gift certificate to Origami Owl!

Also, if you are interested in selling Origami Owl, please contact Stephanie via her facebook page here or leave me a comment with your email and I'll get you in touch with her.  This is a new company and it's not something everyone else is heard of (like thirty one, scentsy, etc...), so it is a great time to join!

This awesome giveaway will end on Friday, July 27th.

Crayola Summer Fun Color Wonder giveaway!

Wow!!! I have an awesome giveaway for you all!  

Crayola's Color Wonder stuff is one of our absolute FAVORITE things around here, so I'm very excited to give one lucky winner everything you see in this picture!


Some fun facts about everything included:

  • With over 10 feet of coloring, the compact Color Wonder On the Go Tiny Tube lets kids tear off a perforated activity page for magical coloring fun at home or on the road.  The tube fits in the cup holder of a car and can store the included markers inside, making it a perfect on-the-go activity. Adhesive-backing allows paper to stay in place while coloring so kids can easily create anything imaginable.
  • Bring your friends on the road with the Disney and Barbie Crayola Color Wonder Mini Coloring Pad and Markers. With more pages than ever, kids will enjoy coloring a variety of pictures featuring some of their favorite characters. These fun coloring pads are also available in mini sizes that are perfect for tucking into a bag and bring them with you wherever you go.
  • Get back to basics and allow kids to draw what they see outside their car window or daydream and draw whatever they imagine with the Color Wonder Coloring Pad. Kids will be entertained in the back seat with 5 sheets of Color Wonder paper and 2 Color Wonder Markers that only leave a mark on special Color Wonder paper.
Create, erase, and create again with Crayola Dry Erase products that allow kids to unleash their inner artist over and over without carrying around hundreds of sheets of paper.
  • You’ll be all packed up and ready to go with the Crayola Dry Erase Travel Pack that features a dry erase surface, along with dry erase crayons, an eraser and a sharpener to help sustain hours of fun. Take out the game and activity templates and let kids challenge each other to different games using vibrant, washable markers.
  • Everyone can get in the game with the Crayola Dry Erase Zany Play that comes with four bullet tip dry erase markers and boards that your family can use to play games like tic-tac-toe, the dot game and mazes.




We are saving some of this stuff for future road trips, but of course, Jenna saw it all and went crazy for it.  So, I let her pick out one thing to do right now and she chose to open the Tiana set.  



So excited!

Hard at work! 


This giveaway will end Thursday, July 5th.
