Origami Owl Giveaway!

I'm so excited to have a guest post and fun (and EASY to enter) giveaway from Jennifer today. I wish I could win! -Jenna
---------------------------------------------------------
Hi everyone! I'm so excited to be posting here on Jenna's blog. I've been reading here since Hudson was a tiny baby, and I have loved following all of their adventures! Rhett is just a little older than my own sweet boy Levi, so I can relate to so many of Jenna's stories.

That's actually what I want to share about today--stories! I am a story teller by nature. I love to share about what is happening in my life. Scrapbooking is one of the ways I do that--I love picking out the perfect pictures and embellishments to capture moments. I also love journaling. There is nothing like a blank page in a pretty notebook and a favorite pen. Now that I'm a mom and working full time, I don't have as much time for either of those things as I'd like. There's just never enough time in the day! But capturing memories and sharing my stories is still so important to me. I don't want to forget any of the little moments in life. That's why when I discovered Origami Owl jewelry, I was hooked. Origami Owl offers lockets, charms and other accessories that are completely customizable for you to tell your story with jewelry.

This is my first locket. I started with the Blessed plate, because it's exactly how I think of my life. I added the rose gold cross to represent my relationship with Jesus and His death on the cross for me. The April birthstone is for the month my husband and I were married, and the July birthstone is for my son. Finally, I added the script word love because I want to remember every day how much I am loved and to show that love to others.  

I love when people ask about my locket, because I can share my story! And I love being an Origami Owl independent designer and helping others create lockets that tell their stories! Some of my favorites: 

-A mom who lost her son created a beautiful heart locket to memorialize him, with his initials, a pair of angel's wings,  and a heart saying "in memory of". 
-My dad built a locket for my stepmom after they went through a rough patch. It included the "Always" plate, the "love" plate, a wedding ring charm, and the sun and moon charm to represent loving her to the moon and back. 
-A good friend chose charms to represent her hobbies and passions: a paw print, a music note, an Icthus fish, and an owl. 
-My pastor's wife used our "Over the Heart" chain, which holds two separate lockets, so she could include birthstone kids for all 13 of her grandchildren!
To make it even easier for you to tell your story, Origami Owl has been recently released a collection of Hispanic cultural charms, a set honoring mothers, and a set to celebrate graduates. There is something for everyone!

What story do you want to tell? Is it about your marriage, your kids, your grandkids, a special trip, a favorite past time?
