How many times in life do we get the opportunity to be part of a brand new company?  
Once in a lifetime if any at all?   Try two times in your life!!!  

Wow!  I am extremely excited to be able to be one of those willing hearts that gets the opportunity to be part of history for a second time.

When I started with Origami Owl they were just a year old and I have felt privileged to be one of their founding designers from the start. As a matter of fact this past February I celebrated my 4th year anniversary and I could not be happier and full of hope for the future.

This last January I had the privilege to attend L.E.A.D. a leadership summit in Coronado California and it was incredible!  We got to experience first hand the knowledge and expertise from our founders and the top leaders in the company.  We got to experience first hand the Spring product reveal, changes to our enhanced career plan and just a lot of inspiration, camaraderie among our fellow designers.

One of the highlights of this leadership summit was the announcement of the launch of Willing Beauty an Origami Owl family of brands!   Willing Beauty was born out of the synergy of four willing hearts - Our Origami Owl founders and original mother/daughter team Chrissy and Bella and the founders of Willa skincare- Christy and Willa.  How awesome is that?  These power women have come together to create a revolutionary brand of skin care that is going to be a major game changer!

The company is set to launch in April 2017 and there is a waiting list to become a beauty advisor as of now - I jumped right at the opportunity even though I'll be learning more as I go as I did when I joined Origami Owl. There is something about the new and the innovative that excites me and I am so thankful and blessed lighting struck twice in my lifetime!  I will be posting more information as I go but I can sense that the future is so bright!

Finding-answer-prayers - Live Sparkly

How do you live sparkly?

It's all in the details is a way of life for me... 
If you know my story you know that I truly believe that it's the small details in life that add up to a whole lot of wonderful.

I try to never compromise adding a little extra into everything I do.  My life has evolved tremendously over the years but at the core I have always paid attention to details. The more I experience life and I grow I realize that at the end of the day those little details become the big things and the memorable things you keep close to your heart.

Living sparkly to me is just that - taking the time and caring about the way we live every day. Showing your light everyday from the smallest interactions to the big things you are trying to accomplish.  The mere fact that the smallest gesture like a genuine smile can turn someone's day around for the better inspires and motivates me to do it every chance I get. You just never know who needs that smile at that precise moment.  I think living sparkly is also a way of life.  We have the choice to choose how we will face the day and if we are willing to make a positive difference in this world and in the lives of others.  I welcome you to read my live sparkly story by clicking on the link above.

I am so happy I have found a way to empower, motivate, inspire and make a difference in the lives of others through Origami Owl and that my prayers have been answered in the most unexpected ways.

Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.”

This is what I am talking about!
So inspiring to know that I don't have to feel overwhelmed about doing great things today (which I do want to accomplish by the way!) but simply start by focusing on the small things and doing them in a great way.

That is what It's all in the details is all about.  Taking care to focus on everyday little things that make life beautiful.  I think that starting your day with a grateful heart gives you the lenses to notice and pay attention to the details that surround you.

I am learning so much from this Direct Selling Growth Summit!  click here: Direct Selling Summit

So many valuable insights from industry experts.  I never realized that being associated with sales marketing or network marketing would allow me to learn, grow and enrich my life in such a positive way.

As I started this blog I never knew what it would take to get it going. My initial intent was pure genuine desire to express myself and share my take on life. I never blogged before, but now I realize that you don't have to be an expert but just do it!  As you move... you learn.. then you grow.

I get fascinated at how every little thing I have felt inspired to do in the last few years has built on itself to bring me to the perfectness of my now.  That is what people mean by enjoying the journey!

It all comes full circle...

How do you live sparkly? What does this mean to you? To me - my life motto of " it's all in the details..." expresses it all. Approach your life and everything you do paying attention to all the details that make this life beautiful - special, worth living... pay attention to all the beautiful details that you can incorporate into your life to make someones day - to beautify your surroundings, to be the best person you can be in whatever you do!

I created this blog with a deep desire to express the way I approach life, to highlight the positive, to shine the light on the blessings and all the things I appreciate about the aspects of my life.  It was a way for me to try and capture what I really mean by "it's all in the details" I had never blogged before and I sure had no idea where it would all take me.  I've struggled through the years to keep it going but my heart keeps bringing me here.

My soul was searching so much and I prayed, walked through the valley... in so many ways. But the journey took me to incredible and unexpected places, showing me through new encounters and everyday interactions the path was unfolding right before my eyes. It still is and I am so excited for the future.

Where do I begin?! 
Origami Owl has given me such a wonderful creative outlet, one my soul was searching for after I had to put interior design on a shelf.

It has provided me with the opportunity to grow a team and fulfill one of my dreams of mentoring other women, inspire motivate and empower others to succeed. It has afforded me the ability to give back to various charities, like Dress for Success, Cinderella's Closet, Send Me Foundation, Athletes for Education, the Lupus foundation to name a few. Most importantly it has given me the opportunity to work alongside my daughter and teach her valuable lessons about work ethic, philanthropy and self-confidence. And the list goes on!

Find out more here:

Here she is last Friday at a regional meeting teaching other girls how to fold an origami heart- she asked them to write a goal or a dream inside the paper fold it into a heart and keep it very close - she gave them ideas on how to string the hearts together into a garland and/or put them in a frame to always remind them of their dream/goal. Something Bella our founder did for us back when Origami Owl was born. This may have been a simple task but it really empowered her to lead a group and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

Ok - my motto is "it's all in the details" so it should be no surprise that I am totally obsessed with planner decorating now!  How much more detailed can it get?

I have always loved planners, writing down goals, checking off checklists etc.  I had heard and even used color coding for my entries in the past which was pretty enough but OMG when I realized that there is a whole planner community out there and so many inspirational ways to decorate your planner?  I became totally NUTZ as my daughter puts it. 

I adore all the stickers, washi tape, accessories, pens, and just plain creativity involved in the whole process. I have a pinterest board where I follow some of my favorite planners and post some of my newest hauls and latest finds.

This is my latest addition and I am loving the layout and pre-decorated aspects of it!  I love that the rings have a heart in the middle and that you can snap on additional items with such ease.  Yeah that will make it FIVE planners people!   NUTZ I tell ya!  but I LOVE IT!!!

This is my Erin Condren Origami Owl Planner I bought at last year's convention with one of the Chanel inspired paper clips I made myself shown below.. I was inspired by another planner on pinterest and found the images there as well and just went to town!  So pretty!

Of course the first thing I do now is to go straight to the dollar section at Target when I shop there and EVERY time I say I am just looking, I end up with something totally fabulous! I just can't help myself!

I will add all my favorite websites, youtube planners that inspire me and Etsy shops on the right so you can go find your latest obsession as well.
