Change is a good thing — Butterflies do it

Butterflies have such a symbolic meaning, that we all (including me), take for granted.

Imagine the “whole of your life changing”, the metamorphosis the butterfly goes through. The amount of transformation that happens from the egg, to the caterpillar, to the cocoon. And from the cocoon, the butterfly emerges.

Why this lesson on Butterflies? Let me explain…

Change is good. Spring brings change. Some embrace it, some leave it to chance, and others ignore it. Whatever the situation is, it’s okay. 

For me, I chose to embrace it. 

So agree. But not sure I'll be leaving here anytime soon.

As you know, I’m a designer. A knitting designer. Yesterday I chose to be an Independent Designer with Origami Owl. I found this to be quite refreshing. A way to showcase my designs. A place I can find inspiration in the everyday-kind-of-loves. 

It compliments my business model…design with the customer in mind. 

Knitted design accessories which compliment your jewelry, your personal likes, and what makes you feel good. 

I’ve had consistent thoughts about designing jewelry that would compliment my knitted accessories. But, after purchasing and playing, or purchasing and just letting it sit in the drawer, I began my search for that perfect company. One that would compliment what I was doing as a knitting designer. 

After researching many wonderful companies, I settled on Origami Owl. It all began by a young woman, Bella, who had a big dream to have her very own car by the age of 16. “We are deeply committed to being a force for good and making a difference in the lives of others. We strive to help others achieve their dreams, just like I achieved mine.” Oh, and she did get her car. A white Jeep named Alice. 

I’m 100% convinced this company will go hand in hand with my knitted designs. My hope is that I can create a special locket/bracelet/wrap/necklace for YOU that will compliment your favorite hand knit accessory, your personal likes, and what makes YOU feel good, as well as tell your own story, or tell the story of someone special in your life. 

Y=Your
O=Own
U=Uniqueness

If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t BIG enough. 

What are your dreams?
