So I have truly trying to live by my "let it go" mantra. And my kids have embraced this new outlook wholeheartedly. I've even caught my oldest taking a deep breath while muttering "let it go". It sounds kind of hokey, but it really does seem to snap things back into perspective pretty quickly.
While browsing Pinterest (yes I'm a pinner), I came across this idea for a tattoo that I fell in love with - it is an image of a balloon floating up with the words "Let it go" inscribed under it. While I'm not quite ready to get my tattoo (still working up the courage), I really wanted a piece of jewellery with this charm on it. Problem was, I couldn't find anything that was just right. Most balloon pieces had hot air balloons on them, and that wasn't really what I wanted.
After putting the word out on Facebook that I was looking for someone to do custom made stamped jewellery, I was given contact info for Teri at Swirlicious (http://swirlicious.myshopify.com/). I sent her my idea (essentially I said a birthday balloon with the words under it)...my heart broke just a little when she said she didn't have a stamp of a birthday balloon. She did tell me she would see what she could do, so I left it in her capable hands.
A few days later, she sent me this picture and asked what I thought of it:
Well today I picked them up - and they did not disappoint. I LOVE them, and I can't wait to give them to my girls tomorrow. I'm thinking this piece will get alot of wear from all of us.
I would like to officially thank Teri for using her creativity to make what I wanted a reality. If anyone needs any awesome pieces made, make sure to check out her FB page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Swirlicious/50893132379)!
