Origami Owl Giveaway


I am so excited about today’s giveaway…not only because I love the product, but because I am a sucker for stories behind successful women.  Have you seen the awesome Origami Owl Lockets? Or heard about how Origami Owl was started by a 14 year old girl?


Here is a small excerpt from an article about how Isabella Weems got started
Two years ago, 14-year-old Isabella “Bella” Weems told her parents she wanted a car for her 16th birthday.  Her parents made a deal with her. If she wanted to create a business and earn the money, they would match her investment. With $350 in babysitting earnings and $350 from her parents, she invested in some clear lockets. She called them Living Lockets. Customers could customize by choosing charms to place inside the lockets.

Bekki Johnson, a Leading Designer for Origami Owl would like to offer one Idea Room Reader with a $50 Gift Certificate so that you can own one of these fun and unique lockets for yourself.

I was able to test out one of the Origami Living Lockets myself.  I LOVE this piece of jewelry.  I have so many hobbies, that I had a hard time deciding what charm to put in my locket.  And then I realized what I really wanted to wear around my neck and keep close to my heart are my husband and kids.  So I chose out the birthstones of every one in our family.  With 7 of us, four of us share a birthday month (2 and 2) so I added 5 birthstones.  And the glass locket? So well made!  I can’t wait to add some more charms.
