Origami Owl and Updates on life here

Hello........do you know about Origami Owl.  It's all about lockets, charms and tags and telling your story through jewelry.  Yep, I did it, I signed up to be a designer.  No, I don't design the jewelry just demonstrate it.  I was interested in this awhile back but there was a wait list to join.  Then a friend of mine and I decided to both join.  I love all the layered looks and the bigness of the jewelry these days......but sad to say, it's not me.  I love that you can customize  these lockets.  I like a really long chain.  I can slip it over my head and off I go.  I have seen so many creative ways of using the charms.  I am not planning on make big bucks with this.  I promise I won't be using this blog to run my business.  I just wanted you to know.  I will have a giveaway pretty soon.  If you are interested and want to know more you can check out this website  Debby Messner. Origami Owl.com........or of course email me at clowninabug@gmail.com.  (I have been trying to switch emails due to the problem I have when someone replies to my other email address.  OKAY, for what else has been going on here at Cozy Blanket.
I am still having back problems.  You know that it isn't good when I am missing the Springfield Extravaganza and The Back Woods Fest.  I have been on the steroids for a week now.  I am convinced it is a pinched nerve in the middle of my back.  With having arthritis and degenerative discs in that area, it is concerning me.  I have already had one back surgery and will avoid that til I can't stand it.  Any suggestions out there.  I am going on an exciting trip in a couple of weeks.  I need to be better.  I will post about that soon.   I am so enjoying having two more grands to spoil these days.  My house will always have ice cream as little Mabel associates it with coming here, hah.  We go to soccer games on Saturday and flag football on Sundays.  Yes, I won't miss these and they don't take a lot of effort.  I did try to clean my house a tiny bit yesterday and that wasn't good.....that is how this back thing started.  Ooops, I said I wasn't talking about that anymore.  Other than a couple warmer days we have had beautiful weather.  We keep missing all the rain everyone around us gets.  Thank goodness it has stopped raining in Colorado  The flooding was very near to where my daughter and her family live.  Like....all around them.  Seeing and hearing the towns that were flooding was very sad.  I have been to all of these places.  I know they will rebuild but where do you start.  Also most of these people and places have no flood insurance.  The fire that destroyed all of Sandy's rebuilding was hard to take as were the shootings in DC.  Sometimes we have to just focus on the good things around us.  We can pray and hope and support those that are hurting.  Okay the sun is shining and the temps are perfect......so let's all have a beautiful day. 
P.S. How could one not love a company with this as their background color.

Sorry about your hurting back Debby, I hope that it doesn't come to have to go through an operation again.

I'm not a jewelry kind of person myself but I like looking at the jewelry other people wear, isn't that funny?

Good luck with this new venture.
Hugs,
JB

My son and I have had back problems in our family. My son is taking the exercise route and I'd say it's working for him. Making the muscles back there strong is the key.

Hi Debby, I know that back problems are not fun. When you hurt, it is miserable. I tried to send you an e-mail to your old address. Let me know if you got it, if not I will try your new e-mail. Isn't it wonderful having your grands closer and watching them play sports or whatever? Have a wonderful day. Many Hugs and Prayers from your Missouri Friend.

That image makes me utterly happy. I am sorry about the back problems, but am just grinning and grinning at those two cutie-patooties.

Take good care of yourself. Love on those grands, but take good care of yourself. Good luck with your jewelry adventures too.

Debby, I am with you on all the heartache around our country. We can't stop praying...ever. I know you are in torment with your back...sometimes , I just can't get comfortable. I am trying to remember to stretch every morning now. That helps. Moist heat helps. My problem is I want to rake, shovel, or sweep everything I see. The porch, the driveways, the yard. GAAAA. I just can't seem to help myself like that. What with you having some degenerative problems...chiroprators aren't for you. They could probably do more damage. I will keep you in my prayers also. xoxo,Susie

You expressed my feelings beautifully. It is to the point where I cannot watch the news anymore. It is so upsetting at my age. Hope the back is improving. Last week did my back in, and I am having to reconsider the job. Do not think I am able to do it. Will keep you posted. Will try to mail of pkg this week. The longer I wait the more books go in Not bad :-)g

SO sorry your back is still hurting. Rest and then exercise has worked best for me. Feel better. xo Laura

Hi Debby! Thanks for sharing about your little Yorky... Pets make us laugh, don't they. Please take care of yourself. My Mom had a back (sorry, I had to say it) problem a while ago, and after a few shots it went away. So be patient... it will get better! Take care, Vicki

hi Debby! The jewelry sounds like a lot of fun. I really hope you get your e-mail straightened out. And did I tell you that I love your blog header?? It is adorable :)
I am so sorry that you are suffering from your back. I know these kind of injuries hurt. As for all the crazy in the news lately. Yes, It can be depressing. But faith in God. He is the best :)
Blessings,
Susie
