Nothing But Purple

A little back story of becoming an Independent Designer for Origami Owl.

I had just been divorced from my husband of five years and needed to find my independence, to find out who Jessica was after going through what I had endured from an insecure man.  I needed to learn that I am not an extension of someone else, that I can do things; like go out with my friends, spend money on myself, or just be at home without feeling guilty of anything.

I spent $149 of babysitting money to get started and guess what I have now? 

My independence, people I can call friends, goals to reach and grab, and to teach my boys that nothing is given to you. You must work for it.

I have been to three conventions on my own with this company. The Origami Owl conventions have always opened up my mind, heart, and soul to see my bigger picture. The BIGGER picture!

So, I ask you today, what would you do with an extra stream of income?

Have you every wondered what it would be like to have time and money for the little extracurricular activities that you, yourself would enjoy to do but are unable to because you're living paycheck to paycheck?

Investing $99 into owning your own business could be the best thing you ever do for yourself or your family.  You can join here.

First Born - Connor Boy

Connor Boy

You are my first born son.  The one I wanted because I wanted to start a family. 

At first I fumbled around, I'm still fumbling around because you are always growing and need to be taught how to be an independent, self sustaining, human being one day without me. 

At six months old you were already too smart for your own good.  You knew what you wanted and you got it. You went after it.

You started walking just as you were turning a year old. That year went by so fast, I couldn't catch my breathe.  We celebrated you on your birthday and had so much fun.

Fast forward to now, already eleven years old, I worry about stuff that I shouldn't be worrying about until you're much older.  I still worry about because you are my child! I worry about whether you will choose to do the right thing versus the wrong thing. I worry that one day you'll choose your dad over me. 

I'm happy to say that I am proud of you for making the choice to finish cub scouts and to continue with Boy Scouts. You will achieve Eagle Scout, I believe in you!

Little Leo

Leo is a mixed breed pup. I was told that he was an American Eskimo Spitz/spaniel mix but as he has gotten older  and I've seen a few English Setters, Leo is looking a lot like the English Setter breed.

Last year was a bit rough, although Leo is an easy dog to train, he had to live with a friend, Alicia, who was glad to help me until I was able to find a place that would allow pets to live with the tenants.  He enjoyed the pup he played with but I knew he missed me. Nala was a great friend for him.

I take Leo to the dog park because at my apartment complex there isn't an area for the dogs to run around outside. They have to be on a leash. Leo loves the dog park. He'll run and run and run and never seem to run out of steam until I tell him it's time to go.

Once we get back in the car and moving, he falls asleep right a way.
