Origami Owl: Sponsor Review + GIVEAWAY!

So, have you noticed something new on my sidebar?? I know you couldn't have missed the pretty ad on the right side, showing off a gorgeous locket. That locket comes from Origami Owl, and I had the pleasure of working with Jennifer (awesome name by the way), an independent designer for Origami Owl. 

"I have been an Independent Designer with Origami Owl for five months. I love the personal connection I get with my customers when I help them create a locket that tells their story. In addition to Origami Owl, I work full time at a major food manufacturer and am the mother of a three year old daughter and wife of a very supportive husband."

The lockets and charms inside are like wearing your own personal story. You first pick your locket, either medium (holds 4-7 charms) or large (holds 7-12 charms), and the color (plain silver, silver with bling along the edges, gold or rose gold) and then you choose your charms. And that's where I had the hardest time. There are SO MANY charms to choose from. Everything from birthstones, to initials, to numbers, to hobbies... the options are endless.

After much thought, I finally picked out 5 charms I wanted. I went with a "hubby" themed locket. A "J" and a "D" for his first and last name, a charm that says "Love", a blinged out heart, and a birthstone for April (the month we got married in). Don't they look so pretty together? And look how shiny that locket is, you can see the reflection of my iPhone case. :)

The package was sent to me in a gorgeous little container, and it was super easy to put in the charms. The front and back of the locket are connected with a hinge on one side, and a super strong magnet on the other. I just popped it open, inserted my charms, threaded on the chain, and VOILA! It was ready to wear. Even hubby loved it and said it's so much prettier than he expected it to be.

So, how many of you are jealous of my new pretties? Raise your hand because I know you are! Wouldn't you like to have one for yourself?? Jennifer has offered to give one LCW follower a $25 gift certificate! Booyah!

My favorite is the sand dollar charm! I've always wanted to find one in the beach but there so hard to find!

I saw this by chance on the web and fell in love with it. The bracelet I had when my son deployed, filled with meaningful charms, broke and could not be fixed. I have been looking for a sentimental necklace and this is it. With all that has happened in my life lately (rape of child, subsequent pregnancy, cancelled wedding, hospitalizations, etc) I need to do something for ME and this necklace would be it. Thanks for sponsoring the contest.
