Origami Owl {giveaway}

Have you heard about Origami Owl yet?  Let me start by saying that I am NOT a charm person.  Never been a fan of charm bracelets and I typically go after more modern on-trend jewelry over something more traditional like a pendant.  However...I love love love this company and how charming the necklaces are.  pun intended?!  ;)

You can add pieces, take them off, order more & switch them out.  I'm so excited to team up with my fab friend Brooke to offer one of YOU {because I also love my readers} your very own, personalized Origami Owl living locket!  

Here's how the jewelry works:

You pick your chain & locket then fill it up with super fun charms and add plates & dangles as you see fit.  I wasn't crazy about the dangles until I realized they're on clips!  If you want it, keep it on...if you're feeling less blingy...take 'em off.  Or {like me} if you're thinking of getting one in your child's birthstone...you can keep adding as many as you need!  {perfect for Mother's Day...am I right?!}

Origami Owl was started by Bella, a young girl who wanted to buy a car for her 16th birthday.  And now, she's telling her story with jewelry parties all over the country.  So empowering & inspiring!  I also think their mission statement is fabulous:

So...where to begin?!  Here are 2 bundles I put together when looking through all the collections...

{love life}
All of the things I love about my life.  high heels.  wine.  teaching.  lipstick to represent my glamourous side.  my puppy.  a love letter {because hubs & I dated long distance for 2 years}.  coffee.  elephants.  and an airplane for my love of travel.  I'd also hang the heart charm for all of these things that I LOVE.

{blessed}
Then of course there are all of the things I've been blessed with.  teaching.  this blogging community.  the grace of God that is new every day.  breast cancer research in honor of my grandma.  baby girl's {soon to be} birthstone.  my puppy again.  a pink baby carriage & sweet little footies!  another heart dangle.  and again the travel.  I need to add something else for my family & husband...I guess I better get back to shopping!  :)

The winner will receive a
large silver locket & her choice of a $10 chain!

*follow my blog AND leave a comment on this post to tell me what you'd put in your living locket {do both for 1 entry}
*like Brooke's Origami Owl Facebook page & show her some love {for a 2nd bonus entry}

The giveaway will run through Sunday, May 12th and we'll pick a winner at random for Mother's Day!!

I'd love to put the beach items (because us teachers LOVE summer; don't we?), my daughter's January birthstone, a snowflake for her being born in the winter, the lipstick because I love makeup, and the dog charms because I have two ADORABLE Shih Tzus and just lost another in March, so I'd have it in her memory. Thank you for giving me the chance to win - and, of course, I'd put the apple because I LOVE teaching first grade! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog, by the way - been a follower for almost a year :) :)
