A year ago, I began to donate a portion of the profits from the sales in my shop to Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and Seattle Children's, two special places where Ellie has been hospitalized and had surgery for her heart conditions. In February of this year, the Heart.Full Collection became a permanent part of my shop. (You can read about how Mandy and her daughter Hudson inspired me to take these steps in this post.)
It has been fun to see what necklaces are the favorites this holiday season, and I really am enjoying hearing about who customers are buying the necklaces for and why. And it honestly feels like a gift to me when people share that they are gifting themselves with a necklace because they need to remember they are not alone.
I love when customers share their stories. Fills me up in a big way. And I am deeply moved when they share that they chose an item from the Heart.Full Collection because they read about Ellie's story or have a child who was also hospitalized or that they simply want to be part of giving back while giving this season. (Thank you.)
While working on orders, I felt moved to create two new necklaces for the Heart.Full Collection: the "You Are Loved" heart locket above and the "joy" necklace shown below. I adore these new large heart lockets (above) that just came in, and the word "joy" just feels like the perfect mantra to add to this collection

And I just want to remind you that all U.S. orders placed by Monday will be sent to arrive in time for Christmas. I will continue to ship orders that come in after that date, but I can't guarantee they will arrive by Christmas, especially any custom orders. Please just let me know if you have questions.
Thank you for continuing to support my shop. It truly is an honor to be part of your gift giving this year. Each time I hammer another Soul Mantra phrase into a locket and then package it up, I am reminded of the ways we shine our lights on one another's paths. Yes. Thank you.
