Big Harmony Bracelet announcement

Great news!
I was crunching the numbers this weekend and I’m able to offer a special on the Diamond, Pinwheel and Floral Garden style bracelets!  I have received about 3x more of these styles than any other style, so even though they’ve been my best sellers I still have a lot of them left.  I have all three of these styles listed for only $20 each!
Here is the scoop.  I have just over 2 months left to raise my last $4000 for my trip.  I have a large garage sale planned for spring (if you have a box or two of goodies you planned on donating and instead would like to send them my way please let me know, I’d be so grateful!) and am hoping to bring in $1000 from that and a few other small fundraisers planned as well in addition to the Harmony bracelets.
It’s about more than a bracelet.  When all bracelets are sold there will be 333 women walking around Minnesota and the country who have purchased from me and are all wearing these bracelets to represent what we can do when we join together and put our money towards good things in the world. We can all make a difference. This bracelet is a small step in declaring that.
I hope that every time you look at your bracelet you feel connected to all the other women who are declaring that they too are cheering on love and compassion, peace and unity over all else.
There are also a few red and pink bracelets left that are included in this sale that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.  (What a great gift.)
 
I will be wearing my bracelet on Valentines Day and I hope you will wear yours too. 
 
Post a pic to FB of you wearing your bracelet that day and tage me in it. Let’s help spread the word that together we are all making a difference! 
 
I am SO grateful for each and every one of you!  Thank you for supporting me. I will be leaving in only 4 months!
Make sure to let me know if you have any questions.

words for the friend who just announced she’s getting divorced

I remember a time almost 10 years ago where I felt like the sound went out around me, everything was caving in on me and I was trying not to black out. I was just informed by my then husband of 5 years that he didn’t want to be married anymore.  I remember thinking of our 3 year old, thinking how did I not see this coming, feeling like I had just failed on the biggest stage of my life.  A spent a few hours in denial, then a few days in shock then months in tears and more denial.  Then something took over me that told me I’d be okay, life would go on. On some deeper level I knew that I would come out of that situation stronger and wiser then I had gone into it.  But it was a hard, yucky time. I was annoyed with the world, annoyed with people around me and mostly annoyed with myself.

I moved back to Minnesota (from Dallas) and while sharing a bedroom with my daughter in my parent’s house, I began to put my life back together.  I made lists of all the things I had given up on that I wanted to add back into my life.  I made lists of career options.  I made graphs and charts of all the areas of my life; career, health, finances, hobbies, goals, travel, living, relationships. I noted where I was, where I wanted to be.  What I needed to add into my life, who and what needed to go.  It was hard but thankfully this energy took over and helped me go through it.  I never expected those few years following to be the beginning of the greatest years of my life.

I was lucky to have a few level headed friends and family members around me to help keep me moving forward.  I’ll never forget my dearest soul sister telling me, “You can handle this like they would on Springer or Oprah” . Wow, there were some pop culture words of wisdom that I have never forgotten.

I wanted to give back and help others so I’ve created a Divorce Manifesto.  This is a FREE printable guide that is perfect for women going through a divorce. You can pass it along to anyone you know who could use this tool in their life right now.  Print it, put it by your desk, on your bathroom mirror, in your car or wherever you find yourself needing a boost and reminder of how to not only survive the divorce experience but turn it into a time where you get to know yourself, honor yourself and reset your life path.

Story behind the art – crossroads

Head Held High Crossroads artwork by Noelle Rollins

“Crossroads” by Noelle Rollins

Today I want to start a new weekly feature called, “The story behind the art”

Title: “Crossroads”

I created this artwork about 8 years ago. I was going through a divorce, I was back in Minnesota in a place of refinding myself. I knew what I didn’t want to be and I knew where  I wanted to get to. I was somewhere in the middle.  I was caught between the calm I wanted and the chaos I didn’t.  I frequently thought of the classy women in my life that were who I looked to for advice or to see how they’ve handled themselves at defining times in their own lives. I remember my friend Tammy when she was going through something saying in her fabulous southern accent, “I can either choose to handle this like they do on Jerry Springer or like Oprah, I choose Oprah.” It’s funny how such a simple line has helped me through so many situations. Choose classiness and all that is good over being sucked into the part of you that wants to rip someones eyeballs out.   Now don’t get me wrong, there are times you need to give it right back to someone, don’t be a punching bag, it’s not wrong or unclassy to set appropriate boundaries with people when they are trying to put their own crap onto you. But I try to remember to keep my head high and embrace my fabulous, even during those times I surely don’t feel fabulous or classy.

I think this artwork has resonated with so many people because there are times in all of our lives where we are in the in-between zone. We want to be reminded of what is possible and to just keep going and be aim to be strong; knowing there are great things ahead.
