Origami Owl: Living Locket #O2Journey #OrigamiOwl #sponsored
Now that we’ve seen all the fun that comes in The Holly Jolly Box of Happy it’s time to play and start creating.  The foundation of Origami Owl®  is the Living Locket™.  Every locket is custom designed to tell your story and represent the things you love.  In just a few steps you have a beautiful custom creation that can be altered with the seasons and even your mood.

  1. Begin with selecting the charms that hold meaning for you.  My family is my life and the focus of my Living Locket.  A ring for my marriage, mom for my favorite job in the world, my sons’ birthstones, and a camera for my passion.   
  2. Select your favorite locket and chain.  For a daytime AND nighttime look I love the silver Twist Locket with Swarovski crystals.  The large silver chain is perfect for holding up to my grabby 2 year old.
  3. Add to your story and reflect your personal style with a hand-stamped metal plate or dangle.  Plates come in all styles, but I loved this little rose gold love heart.  It’s small and adds a little extra meaning to my locket.  Dangles are an easy way to switch up your style or add another level of personalization.
  4. Close up your locket and carry your story with you everywhere.  

Living Lockets make the perfect gift too.  With the holidays around the corner who on your list would love a Living Locket with a personal story built by you?  Charms make great stocking stuffers for anyone to add to their locket.

I just love the beauty in a rustic pie during the holidays.  The beauty is in the imperfect homemade crust.  My favorite part of making the pie is forming the crust.  I remember helping my mom roll out the dough, carefully laying it in the pan, folding and crimping the edges with our fingers.  These pies take on the flavor of the holiday, from mint to a classic pumpkin or pecan pie.  I’m loving the simple twists of adding chocolate, sour cream, or even ice cream.
