Asking for help is hard

My brother-in-law Eddie passed away July 17th. I started a gofundme account. It was hard to even start it- took me a day to figure out what to write- and I look at it now and it’s so generic sounding I feel bad. I have gotten a few donations to go towards his immediate family, and I am deeply grateful. I am grateful for all the messages and prayers that I know are going up. 

This is the link Eddie Martinez Gofundme

Having to go through what the family is going through is so tough- but adding the financial burden of a funeral is just overwhelming. I am looking into funeral insurance for my family. And they all know my wishes but really can do whatever they want to help them grieve and get over my passing. 

Wow even writing this has been so hard and I didn’t even talk about Eddie. 

Miss you so much- your whole family misses you so terribly much. You got us all together- you mended the family feud and got all of your brother and sisters together. They are stronger now because of you. 

Love you Eddie-thank you for treating me like your own. See you on the other side.

Love – Father & Son

This is what I see every time I pick up my cell phone. 

Father & Son at Huntington Beach Ca

This is a screen shot- I seem to have lost the picture itself-but I have this! This is my Ozzie and my step-son at Huntington Beach CA. This was the first time in YEARS that my husband was at the beach and my step-son was helping him walk to the water. Ozzie was very weak due to dialysis. This was 3 years ago and he still is on dialysis (ESRD due to diabeties) and still is weak, but he has days where he can do a lot of activity ( we look forward to those days ☺️) 

Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there! 

I wanted to share- thank you for reading ❤️

Happy Creating,

Baby Emma Rose ~ Memorial Fundraiser


Click on picture to shop~100% of my profits will be donated

 ‘The world lost a beautiful baby girl- Heaven gained an Angel’ 

My name is Clara and I met Emma’s Aunt Tiffany at Stanton Baseball Little League closing ceremonies and was drawn to her when she shared a very personal experience she and her family are going through. The loss of Emma Rose. She never made it to see her parents but were so loved from the moment they new they were going to have a baby. I would like to give everyone an opportunity to help raise money for memorial services for Baby Emma Rose and to also help with her families household expenses during this difficult time. For the next 6 days, when orders are placed for Origami Owl Jewelry on the link provided, I will donate 100% of my profits to the family. I have never met Emma’s parents {Ammie Davis & Rick Willey} but God has placed this in my heart to help and I feel so strongly about helping this family who lost their baby girl. Here is the link to shop 100% of my profit will be donated. And please- if you are led to do so, please share this.

Clock on picture to shop. 100% of my profots from this event will be donated
{the following is from Tiffany – Emma Rose’s Aunt ~ On June 6, 2015, my niece Emma Rose Willey was taken from us before she ever had the chance to meet the world. We were supposed to meet her on June 10th and the night of the 5th, we got the news that she had passed. I am asking for help to be able to give her the burial and Memorial Services she deserves. I want to make sure that my sister Ammie Davis and brother in law Rick Willey can have a little bit of peace of mind knowing this is possible and one less thing to worry about during this hard time.} – Tiffany

This is so heavy on my heart. I would like everyone who reads this to help out. No order is to small. Every order generates a commission for me and I am donating 100% of the profit from this event. It will continue till June 30th. This is the link to Emma Rose’s Memorial fund

Origami Owl & my thoughts of happiness

I am truly Happy that I became an Independent Designer for Origami Owl. I know it might sound corny, but I am. It is giving me something that I cherish- and that’s happiness. I get really happy when I do anything that involves Origami Owl. I posted awhile ago that it’s like magic to me, and it’s true. I am happy when I take pictures of our product. I am happy when I post about it and talk to people about it. I am happy when I go to a persons home and introduce Origami Owl to them and their friends. I am happy when I listen to people who have made a Living Locket, or are making one at a Jewelry Bar, and they tell me what each and every charm means to them. They tell me the story behind everything! I am happy when I follow up with my customers (some of whom are great friends now) and they tell me that THEY are happy and love the necklace or bracelet and get compliments on it-and then they tell that person the story behind all the charms!

One of my dear friends became an Independent Designer. We were talking about the process of gaining customers and trying to sell the products and I told her that

we are a force for good and bring happiness into people’s lives

and I really believe that.

My best friend became a designer before me and our plan was to be a partnership, but then, as a lot of companies do, they changed their policies, so I became an Designer. I love that she is in this company with me ❤ and I am in it with her.

My sister also became a designer! She lives states away and through phone calls, texts and facebook (sorry WP) we talk about Origami Owl and how tired we get after a Jewelry Bar (it is very tiring but wonderful) and we are happy! Love Ya bunches sis!

Before I became an Independent Designer, I was very happy. Had a great husband, a great career, great friends and family. I still have ALL that but ( work) and things have changed for me in my personal life but I feel that Origami Owl has filled a gap in my life 🙂 It makes me happy.

Ok wow, I turned on my phone with every intent to post a picture of a possible gift idea for the holidays but this turned into A LOT more then that.

Thanks for reading.

As always-Happy Creating
Clara ~.~

P.S. My family and friends think I am a bit crazed but I still love them
