{ 2 awesome DIY jewelry displays }

Are you a genius?

Don’t be so quick to dismiss your abilities.
Genius = Artist = Linchpin = an individual who can walk into chaos and create order, someone who can invent, connect, and make things happen. A Linchpin is someone who isn’t afraid to stand out or to share her gift with the world. And more importantly, it’s someone [...]
