Do you ever get those ideas at midnight?
You wake from a dreamless sleep and suddenly you have the perfect anecdote, or an interesting story line. If you’re not into writing, maybe you finally decided on a hobby or your body told you Midnight was a great time to start a workout.
You find yourself wide awake filled with a hum or nervous type of energy, you roll over to tell your partner about your new revelation, only it is Midnight and your significant other is about to kill you for waking them up…
I say, “Welcome Friend!” You are part of this tribe now but if this isn’t you you are still welcome here.
One night in late August, I woke up at midnight and I realized that my workout routine, my diet, my non-existent hobbies and my life were currently on the “same ol same ol” path which gets so boring. Amen? So I decided I needed to shake things up a bit….But how?
Unbeknownst to me, later that day during “normal” human hours I would find the answer. I was cleaning out my closet working through the bins that we all have filled with junk we should just throw away…where I “organize” things and found a treasure from over 15 years ago. There was a small box that contained old beads, earring hooks and a few tools. I thought, “hmmmm”. I took out my old kit and opened it up. I had no idea what I was going to do with this “junk” but I figured I could make something cool. Little did I know that two months later I have made 9 online sales, 20 craft show sales and have a growing inventory list.
I am not sure where incorporating Aromatherapy came from because I don’t sell essential oils but I do use them.
Do you ever smell fresh laundry and immediately you are in heaven and hoping that heaven smells like fresh laundry? Do you have a favorite flora scent? Once when I was little girl there was a certain type of Rose that grows well in California, its amazingly fragrant and the smell of roses reminds me of childhood, sunny days and being carefree.
Some people don’t like lavender, but that’s okay you don’t need to associate with that negativity anyway. Just kidding. However, Lavender combined with other scents can be so calming. Do you ever smell something and it takes you 25 years into a past memory that faded so far from your mind and its back clearer than ever? That’s your olfactory working its hardest and there is something to be said for that.
I made the first few pieces void of aromatherapy lava stone all together. They were pretty and sometimes I still make some bracelets without them usually by mistake. However, when I started thinking of what could set me apart from the rest of the jewelry world I got to work on combining a piece of jewelry that could be functional and beautiful. Whether you like Aromatherapy or Jewelry there is a little something for everyone here.
