The Life of a Home Mom

I am an Origami Owl Independent Designer

Ever since I did my first Origami Owl review, I was in love with it and wanted to be a part of it. For a very long time I had wanted a mother’s locket, bracelet or ring and Origami Owl Locket there was this large locket that had all the answers. I mean with five kids it isn’t very easy to put them all in a ring, etc. When doing the review I was even more impressed with the amount of response I got from Michelle, she was so friendly and willing to talk to me about each piece, the company and my life. I loved the way my locket looked but even more the packaging was so cute and the product was safe inside a fortune cookie. How cute is that?

I became even more interested in Origami Owl when I learned more about young Bella (the designer/founder) and how it began as a  wish of getting a job to pay for her first car by the time she turned 16 and she did it. She had told her parents she wanted one and they informed her she needed to buy it herself.  She created this company and the rest as they say is history, only today it seems that this company leads the way for many direct selling companies.  I knew I wanted to work with the company immediately as I watched a video of her stopping off at schools and donating to kids that didn’t get much, you all know I love to pay-it-forward and donate to children every year.

I kept having to put it off though because of one reason or another, but then something magical happened (an elf gave me a little hand) and I became an Independent Designer too. I won’t lie, I had been reading all about Origami Owl ever since that first review, I read other people’s pages, the stories of how they got in, read reviews on locket just to see the stories people were creating. I kid you not I love stopping by and reading about why someone made the locket they did because their stories are so interesting. It’s like reading a very short book. Reading the stories and seeing the locket proves that no two lockets or people are the same. Once I signed up to be a designer I couldn’t wait until I got that first package, you know the Origami Owl Kit that makes you really feel official.

Many of you like to read why a person starts a business, truth is besides the above I also want to begin making more money then my blog makes (which isn’t much) in order to pay off debt (lots of it) and to continue to stay home with my kids, especially Nicoli. He’s at that precious point in his tiny little life where he’s just learned to crawl, pull himself up and next it’ll be walking and I don’t want to miss a moment of it.  Plus at the end of this year I start paying my college off.  I ordered my Origami Owl kit on November 27th and it got here Monday, December 2nd (due to the holiday). The kids wanted to see all the charms that were in it…okay well the girls did the boys didn’t really seem to care. BalletGirl (age 13) can’t wait to sign up on her next birthday to do this with me as a mom and daughter team. I was asked by my oldest “Mom when you start selling hundreds of dollars worth of these a month can you buy me the Playstation 3?” Hey, it means they believe in me right?

If you are anything like me you want to know how it is going and what everything looks like. Right? Not to worry I will show you what I get and when I get sales. I will take you along this journey with me, just like I do my parenting journey. Who knows maybe I’ll help some of you out but you may help me out too. (visit and buy something and help me stay home with Nicoli)

  1. I once sold DK books, but bought as much as I sold (didn’t make any money). Now I’m blogging. I’m making a little , enjoying what I do, and most importantly can work from home to be with my kids.

  2. I first started seeing it last year when bloggers started doing giveaways. I loved mine and wanted to continue on. Lockets that you can interchange with your moods/seasons/life. I love it.

    I do try earning money with blogging but I need to get a more stable amount coming in every month. Any tips?

  3. Agree. What is your locket? What’s the meaning behind it? I have 2 girls with the birthstone color and then the 3 boys with their birthstones, a gold heart with mom and a silver heart with family on it. I’d like to get one for both girls and go off their likes.

  4. I love the fact I can stay at home with my kids. Currently I’m trying to make sure I am able to continue to do that, which is why I’m branching out more. My older daughter (13) wants to get involved with the company with me and can’t wait until she is 14 so she can join.

  5. I have an Origami locket and I love it. These are of heirloom quality.

  6. I’ve actually never seen this company before! I make money blogging!

  7. so pretty! i keep seeing these and have been wanting to make one. or 4. i think all of the pieces i want won’t possibly fit into ONE
