Debates and the Future of our Democracy

Posted by Mindy Harris on

While the build up to the debate I witnessed last night was intense, including a week filled with the death of Ruth Bader Ginsberg and the announcement that our current president would be appointing a new supreme court judge before election day.  How does this effect my life and the life of the young mom's and their mother's who are living through this historic time.

Kid's Jewelry Basics

Posted by ShopPad Support on

A newborn receives many gifts during the precious time before and after birth. We started our company after receiving a 14K gold Diaper Pin with charms after the birth of our son.  Over the many years of working in this industry I have learned a few tricks and tips that I would like to pass along today. This offer has no strings attached, it is my opinion based on my years of experience and study of jewelry making and repair. 1.  For newborn avoid necklaces at any time.  Perhaps allow a necklace to be worn during a christening or baptism...
