As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her Halloween looks. I was even more pleasantly surprised that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Head to our blog to find out how. Have you ever made your own costume? .

I will never forget the day we brought Elle home from the rescue. Super Dad took one look at her and said he was sure she was part lion... She was just missing the mane. So, when we had to decide what type of costume to get Elle this year for Halloween, I knew she HAD to be a lion! And @chewy had the perfect costume for her! Of course, Super Dad and Falynn had to get in on the action too. 
Now tell us, WHO WORE IT BEST?
Super Dad, Falynn or Elle?

Yesterday we visited a local farm and Falynn had the best time ever. She desperately wanted to hold a chicken but she didn’t know how. I love that she wasn’t afraid to ask for help. After learning the right way and trying a few times, she finally got the hang of it. I believe she held 3 different chickens. One 💩 on her shirt and we told her it was good luck. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤣 How was your weekend? Did you try anything new?

World Mental Health Day is a day that affects us all. Whether it’s you or a loved one, it seems as though more and more people are speaking out about their struggles with mental health and how it affects their lives. Since having been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder myself years ago, I’ve connected with so many people through social media and am so grateful for this platform where we can reach out to others and let them know that they aren’t alone. What hurts my heart the most, is hearing about the amount of kids that deal with anxiety these days. I wish there was a magic button we could press to take away anxiety from our kids, so that they can enjoy their childhood, but unfortunately, it’s not that easy. Fortunately, there are steps we can take. I am grateful to @theanxietyhealer who has written another guest post on our blog today for those with teenagers who may be struggling with anxiety. She shares what signs to look for and when to seek help. I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out and pass it onto anyone with teenage kids. Let’s help in any way we can. .

Turning Tragedy into Wearable Art

Imagine going through a series of heartbreaking events… A difficult pregnancy, giving birth to twins who were only two and four pounds, losing one of those babies to SIDS and then years later, having the surviving twin diagnosed with stage-three cancer.  What would you do?  How would you cope? Could you take your grief and turn it into something positive? Maja Arnold did and this is her story.

Maja Arnold with her son Lukas

On a quiet night in October 2007, Maja heard a panicked cry from her husband that she will never forget.  She stumbled into the hall to find her husband crying and holding their newborn, Isabella.  She frantically attempted CPR while her husband called 911.  In a matter of minutes, their lives had become a bad dream that they couldn’t wake up from.  Isabella’s death was believed to have been caused by Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Almost exactly two years after Isabella had passed away, they were blessed with another daughter, Ella.  Life finally seemed to feel more settled when one day in 2010, she noticed a bump on Lukas’s tummy. Testing revealed that her then 3 year old son had a tumor, the size of a baseball, on his kidney and was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer.  Through nine hours of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, Lukas remained brave.  Maja credits her faith to getting through what was obviously the toughest years of her life.  Lukas has been in remission ever since.

When Maja reached out to me on Instagram and I heard her story, I was compelled to share her strength, her talent and her passion for empowering others.   Not long after she first reached out, Maja sent over her sketch of a necklace that she was going to create for me, which incorporated our initials, H, N, L, I and F.  Seeing all of our initials together, in a modern piece, was unbelievable. I loved the sketch, but I never imagined that the finished piece would be even more beautiful.

“Working with people and their stories is the most beautiful thing that could have ever happened to me. When negative things happen, I can create healing through my art. When positive things happen, I can pass the happiness forward,” Maja says. “My clients share their stories with me…it is truly a blessing.”

My custom necklace arrived in a box and sweet little gift bag.   I couldn’t get it open fast enough.  I knew I would love it, but it was honestly so much more than I could have imagined.   I became very emotional, seeing a symbol of my family that I could wear around my neck every day.  I couldn’t think of a better gift.

It’s no wonder that brides-to-be, parents who wanted a symbol of their family and even others who were experiencing grief have sought her out. Each piece represents a personal story and transforms it into wearable fashion of the highest quality to be cherished for lifetime.

The necklace is sterling silver, a very impressive weight and is extremely well made since Maja works with a local artisan who handcrafts every custom piece she designs. It wasn’t long before it was on my neck and I was proudly wearing it everywhere I went.  I have gotten so many compliments on it (especially when they figure out what it is).

“I want to empower women and let them know that when they go through a hard time, there’s something inspiring coming on the other side,” she says, “even if they don’t know it yet.”

Maja’s designs are creations of love, inspired by the story of the wearer. The process takes about three weeks. Maja sketches and handcrafts each one-of-a-kind piece. In the end, the finished jewelry is a vehicle for each person to share their unique message.

For me, it came at the perfect time. Suffering from anxiety has kept me from traveling a lot and I was panicking about our upcoming road trip. The necklace was the perfect reminder that as a family, we could conquer anything as long as we’re together.

This necklace means the world to me and I’m so grateful to Maja for reaching out to me.  It’s a keepsake that will help me to remember that my husband and my kids are what gets me through each day.

As if you haven’t heard enough reason to check out Maja’s creations, a percentage of proceeds of all sales through MajaArnold.com are donated to Seattle Children’s Hospital, which she credits with saving her son’s life. Her “Giving Back” initiative is her way of providing support to families with children who are in need. I can’t think of a better cause and a better reason for you to consider getting one of her pieces for someone you love (or even for yourself).

    Reading at first makes me think if I will continue it or not since it makes me sad. But Maja’s statement: ‘When negative things happen, I can create healing through my art. When positive things happen, I can pass the happiness forward” makes me admire her. I hope every women will be just like her in terms of absorbing things like this.

    What a beautiful necklace! I just can’t imagine losing a baby or a child and then almost losing her twin to cancer. Wow! I’m glad that Maja was able to turn some tragedy into something beautiful.

    She’s amazing and I admire her for being brave while fighting through everything that life has thrown at her and her family. I think this business is worth supporting, especially since it also a way to help out those in need.

    My heart breaks for Maja. I cant even fathom losing a child. That is awesome that she was able to use her grief to make beautiful keepsakes for others to wear with pride. She is an amazing woman.

    I was teary-eyed while reading this story about Maja Arnold. She has really overcome a lot of heartbreak. The necklace is beautiful and I love how she gives back. What a brave lady!

    I know several people that would love to have a remembrance in the form of a necklace or bracelet to remember that special someone. Great to see people reaching out to help others.
