I am SO excited to show you my new ‘limited edition’ charm that I designed for bcharmed! Ok… so it just came in the mail, and I got it on Friday… and I haven’t taken it off since I got it! I adore it!
In October, the bcharmed folks contacted me and asked me if I’d be willing to design a charm for Christmas, and immediately my favorite ‘Santa’ image popped into my mind. One side is Santa himself with a red and white chevron pattern in the background, and the other side says “holly jolly”. The charm is 1.25” circle, and has a couple little gems dangling as well! I love how Santa’s beard kinda sparkles with clear glitter and there is a little gem on the back in the Holly Jolly.
They asked me to write a little blurb about the charm
When I was asked to create a keepsake charm for Christmas, I immediately thought of this cheery Santa. This cute guy was a part of a vintage collection of holiday seals that belonged to my great-grandmother. He reminds me of the Christmas magic I knew as a child–a time filled with wonder, and magic, and pure child-like joy! It's that same little piece of magic I love to see in my own children's eyes… and even allow myself to believe in as I give in (sometimes reluctantly) to the season of giving and love. Truth be told, Christmas stresses me out. So many things going on, and every year it weighs me down. I wanted a piece of jewelry that I could wear the whole season as a reminder to BE "holly jolly". I hope that when people wear this happy charm they will be filled with the joy that comes from giving, and the magic that comes only from the true meaning of Christmas.
if you are anything like me, and you need a constant reminder to turn on the 'holly jolly' (i woke up this morning needing an extra dose of "jolly" and "holly"… i have been working like a mad-woman on other-than-christmas projects for the last 3 days, so i need to dig deep to make some magic here around my house. we did have a new friend arrive "Elvis" the Elf.. my kids were SO excited, and have been wispering all kinds of secrets they want him to tell santa!
ok… my friends at bcharmed have given me a "Holly Jolly" Charm to give away to one of my bloggy friends! so i am opening my comments here on my blog today- and Thursday i will be choosing a lucky winner and someone will have this beautiful and happy charm to hang on your neck through this holiday season, and be a sweet tradition each year!
