I'm embarking on a brand new adventure and with that comes stepping out of my comfort zone. I have a twelve year old partner and a ton of stuff to learn.
A couple of weeks ago one of my friends was telling me of this new business she was in and before I knew it Jakob, my grand son, was online and signing up! Well since he's 12 he couldn't sign up alone, so Nana stepped up and signed up with him. Oy Vey.
It's a direct marketing business and it really is kind of cool. It's called "Origami Owl." Basically it's customized lockets. Turns out, they're beautiful and so much fun! I made one for each of my girls for Christmas and I got one as well. Then I made another for myself honoring my mom and dad and my Texan roots.
The company's idea is to "tell your story" buy choosing a locket, charms, and a chain that "tells your story," or the story of someone you love.
Jake and I spent today going through our first big order for our launch party and I'm really getting excited. I think it will be fun.
Our website is http://jakobandteri.origamiowl.com You should take a peek and maybe you'll find something you love!
This is the necklace I made to honor mom and dad. It's a silver locket with crystals, a silver back plate that says "believe," a cowboy boot (of course), a jet (my dad was a pilot), a crystal heart for my mom, and a tiara for me. Then I added the dangles you see. When I got it all put together I completely loved it!
I placed an order for more stock tonight and ended up buying things for another necklace for myself. This could be dangerous! Jakob is already dreaming of paying for medical school with his part of the income, and me? I'll just be content to watch it grow.
