My daughter Journey had so much fun helping others on her birthday last year that she decided to host another Give BIG Birthday Party! To celebrate her 8th birthday, Journey is asking family, friends and you to celebrate with her virtually by making a donation to Water.org.

The folks over at Brilliant Earth asked me to participate in their Signature Piece Challenge. The challenge was to create a fashion board around one of their fabulous vintage cocktail rings. They are all so gorgeous, it was hard choosing just one.
