List of 10 ways to Reuse your Bubble Mailer

 

Howdy Jewelry Fan!! It’s Earth Day! You may remember, that here at OSJ, we have three core values: Be Satisfied, Be Authentic, and (important for today!!) Be Conscious. I’ve done a few posts about this ethos and I don’t want to bore you to tears today, I mean A LOT of companies are talking about this today. Know that I’m researching carbon neutral options for your purchases and my business and still hauling my recyclables back to the studio if an event doesn’t have recycling (although there are NO events right now, I don’t disagree). So, I thought I’d take a minute and make some concrete recommendations surrounding 10 Ways to Reuse the Bubble Mailer your Jewelry (most likely) Arrives In. 

Drumroll Please………

10 Ways to Reuse Your Bubble Mailer 

  1. Use it to protect your Kindle or Tablet
  2. Store Camera SD Cards in it
  3. Use it to pack Razors for trips (when we get to taking those again)
  4. Bring it with you to the Beach to hold Beach Rocks and Treasures
  5. Tape it up and Reuse it to Mail something
  6. Use it as a Drink Cozy
  7. Put Monthly Receipts in it for your Taxes
  8. Store the Tiny Screwdriver and Screws for Repairing your Eyeglasses in it
  9. Bubble Mailer as the New Coffee Can—Store your $100 Bills (write “Tampons” on it so no one gets too curious)
  10. It’s a great place to stash your Weed

 (Please know that I don't necessarily advocate for all of these related activities. They're just ideas!)

Messages in a Bezel: The Secret Life of Margaret’s Inscriptions

Howdy Jewelry Friend! I’ve been writing messages INSIDE the bezels that hold the stones in your OSJ Jewelry. For like, two or three years. (Insert shrug emoji here.) If you have a purely woven piece, then, whew! I guess you can skip this whole confessional. But if you’re bezel-curious or bezel-positive, then maybe you should read on?? Initially, like any tiny habit and secret, it started simple. The words were simple, things like, “Soul Shine”, “Love Wins”, “Believe in You” and “Be the Light.”

Ugh. My Hearts are Showing

January 17, 2021

Now I’m going to let you in on a little secret. At my house, the end of every argument is ended and put to rest, FOREVER, with a Hug. Sometimes, when thoughts and emotions are too much to tame and explain, we just say, “Can we Hug it out?” Sometimes, it takes some real arguing to get there, and other times it’s fast tracked. Now, you gotta know, it’s perfectly acceptable for either party to say “No.” It hurts a little, mostly a lot, but it’s about respecting someone's boundaries and allowing them the space to decide when they want to move on.

August 19, 2020

Some of my earliest memories of August center around the long, last days of summer, a child’s perfect wish to hold onto the time before school began and the day long bike riding sessions and drawing chalk spaceships in the street and playing Horses and swing sets and lemonade on the back patio.

Like Dierks Bentley, “I Hold On”) where I’d ride horses across the west and zoom into space where the expanse of stars would twinkle and welcome me (I didn’t know the physics of the atmosphere interacting with the wavelengths of light, so in my woman child dreams, the stars ALWAYS twinkled, even when floating amongst them).
