Jord Watches-AND a giveaway!

I am always on the look out for beautifully crafted things that come from small businesses.  Jord Watches (pronounced Yode) is a company that I have had the pleasure of working with before, and I am never disappointed with the style and craftsmanship that this company puts out.

There are a couple of companies that offer wood watches, but this is simply one of the best companies that I have seen.


Each watch comes in a cedar humidor that can be engraved as well.  The box is stunning as well, as I am a sucker for packaging.  If something is packaged nicely, it usually means that whatever is inside is going to be nice as well.

Whatever watch you select can be sized for the person and can be engraved if you choose.  The watches come with a warranty and free shipping as well.



The watch that I chose for collaboration is from the men's collection, Hyde.  It is a stunning ebony wood that has a dark finish.  It is like a chocolate dream. I chose a men's style, as I love large face plates because I think the style is classic, and sometimes I just love have a big, bold piece of jewelry.  I like to style watches with "arm candy" or "arm stacks" aka lots of bracelets.  

If you are looking for a special gift for the holidays, whether it is a him or her, Jord Watches is a great place to start!  The options for these watches are endless as you can mix and match face plates and woods.

Because this company is so generous, they are hosting a giveaway for a $100 gift card towards the purchase of a watch.  Please follow this link to get entered! Everyone who enters will receive 10% off!

Also, be sure to watch my IG and IG stories for more styling tips and tricks to update your wrist or the wrist of someone you love!

Stay Sweet,

Wooden Wrist Watch

Mama Said Tees / EveryKind




I had the absolute privilege to work with EveryKind (Mama Said Tees) a couple of months ago, and I don't think I could love a company any more than this one!

The story of this company is really fantastic and speaks to how amazing humans actually are.  Here is their story:

It all started in 2014 when we met online (yes, really!) bonding over our love for exclamation points (!!!), having the same name (Colleen) and our babies born just a day apart. We shared a passion for kindness and had an instant connection by way of e-mails. Our friendship grew from e-mails to texts to phone calls, and we decided what better way to share kindness than putting it across the hearts of our kids on comfy tees for all to see!
In the summer of 2014, EVERYKIND (formerly known as Mama Said Tees) was created before we ever even met in person. At first, we only sold tees with kind messages, but our small shop "that could" has grown into so much more than we could have ever dreamed. EVERYKIND is a lifestyle brand that spreads kindness through unique designs created with you in mind. We believe that no matter who you are, you fit right here with us.
We want to shout to the world (and we need your help) that we embrace everyone's differences and we have a desire for EVERYKIND to be accepted. We are a growing brand with so much to achieve and we are so thankful to all of you for helping us share our mission in kindness!
xo,
Colleen & Colleen 
Both of these woman a ultra amazing and have a great story all their own.  So needless to say I am SOLD on this company!

Not to mention most of their apparel has a portion of the sales go to a wonderful charity that supports kindness and changing the game in how we see each other.  Basically, how to spread kindness.




 So, I grabbed my #instagramhusband and my in real life husband to snap some photos of some of the items they sent to me.





First up is the redefine Normal Tee.  The original normal tee! Make a difference while rocking your Normal tee!  A portion of the proceeds go to PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center! The end of bullying begins with YOU!

This shirt is incredibly soft and it also come in hoodie form below (and its on sale!), which I just keep with me at all times!






Also available is the Everybody is Different Tshirt.  How boring would it be to all be the same anyways? Own your differences because there is NOBODY like YOU!  Read more about the inspiration behind this shirt HERE.  



This company has rolled out a bunch of new designs, all that are as comfortable as the next, and all that help spread love and joy! And who doesn't want to be a part of that?

What is your business about? What is it that you do/sell? I like to call it creepy crafting. 💚 Mostly it’s a creative outlet that became a hobby that I wanted to share with others. Everything I make is something I would wear or decorate with myself! 

What gave your the inspiration or motivation for your business? There’s such a niche for us Halloween lifestyle lovers and my creepy ghouls and gals out there... 🎃 and there’s just not much that caters to our style. I realized the only way I was going to find what I was looking for was to make it myself. It’s been so much fun and I thoroughly enjoy every challenge that’s presented itself in trying to make my crazy ideas become a reality (also thank you YouTube for reteaching me how to use a sewing machine 😅)

What has been your biggest success to date? My biggest success has been to see everyone’s overwhelmingly positive responses to my creations! 🖤 I love making them, but hearing the feedback and shock at how much they love what I made or how the photos don’t do my creations justice, makes me feel amazing! I am so honored. 😌

Do you have any big plans/ideas/launches planned for 2018? Not as of right now. I will be starting student teaching full time, so I’ll be working around that chaotic schedule. 🙃Teaching children is my dream and crafting is my outlet, but I’m sure I’ll come up with something for my batty babes and monster men! ⚰️ Until then though, I LOVE doing custom pieces so please reach out to me with any ideas!

Do you have anything on special or something you are launching for this holiday season? Yes, a collection of creepy holiday goodies! 🎄🦇 Stay tuned...
