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.
10 Ways to Reuse Your Bubble Mailer
(Please know that I don't necessarily advocate for all of these related activities. They're just ideas!)

So cute! Wooden box, all little green bits promising to thrive on neglect and small amounts of water. Surely the perfect plants for me!! Perfect size for my desk! (A desk which is the first grown up desk I’ve ever owned- bought it last fall after stalking it online and in person for nearly a half a year.) Perfect right next to the lamp (Costco buy and it’s twin is in my family room) to the right of my monitor, a bright green, adorable reminder that we are all living and connected.
Except they started dying.
I can promise you, I was giving them ALL the neglect they needed. Stressed about my green experiment and NOT wanting my husband’s over two-decade premonitive admonition to be true, I moved them over to my studio windowsill. Lots of sunshine there!! And I fussed. I may have overwatered them if my niece is right—we had a frantic facetime consultative intervention when I noticed big, bold, juicy leaves on the rug. AHHHHHHHH!!!

I planned on writing a great Journal Entry for you concentrating on Design and my “Design Process”, but I’ve been distracted. Forgive me? I’ve been in the house since March (and I’m grateful for the house to be in since March, by the way). And so, when considering my design aesthetic origins, what it is that drives my work, I, of course, settled on the debate: Star Wars vs. Star Trek. (Please know that both aforementioned names are copyrighted by Walt Disney World Studios and Viacom-CBS respectively (as of this writing in July, 2020). I mean no disrespect or infringement, and only mean to discuss the illustrious franchises with the utmost of fan respect.)
