Tamera Beardsley: An I MATTER Woman; a Jewelry Giveaway and the Blog Hop!

My friend and fellow blogger, Tamera Beardsley is not only an accomplished jewelry designer, but also a woman who inspires others with her talents and messages.  She has begun a new celebration of women called CROWN YOURSELF, and it is another way to say I MATTER.  Here is today's post in Tamera's words:

"I am Tamera Beardsley and have both a life style blog and accessory line of the same name. After raising my three children, it was writing my blog that helped me reinvent myself and reconnect with my initial career in designing fashion accessories. Over the past several years I have realized the importance not only of  self acceptance and self care ... but even more so … the importance of celebrating our own souls ... and what makes us each unique  in our own way. I call this celebration of self … Crown Yourself!
Crown Yourself is a mission I have taken up this year … to help remind ourselves … to take the time to celebrate the magic and uniqueness that resides inside each of us. Crown Yourself is a literal and figurative reminder of our own intrinsic worth … the unique  soul that resides insides each of us.

I have learned from the personal experience of being on this planet for 55 years … the more I can validate and accept myself with grace and kindness, celebrate my own unique soul and in doing so ... Crown Myself … the more I can do this for others.  The better care I take of myself … the more I have to offer others.
I have recently been designing not only literal crowns … but Crown Yourself bracelets as well!  Realizing not everyone is comfortable with a literal crown, I have recently introduced bracelets that are a perfect reminder to Crown Yourself! The bracelets are made from howlite stone beads.  Howlite is believed by many to reduce stress and anxiety. Each bracelet is finished off with a three dimensional crown … the perfect reminder to Crown Yourself … or even Crown A Friend!"
Two of you are going to win one of these bracelets...just follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter and we will announce the winners next Thursday on I MATTER day! Then go enjoy the blog hop! To Shop Tamera's jewelry go HERE! And for this audience, you can get a 25% discount with the code CrownYourself.  Finally, visit Tamera's blog HERE.

  20. I would love to wear one of Tamera's crowns on New Year's Eve! I think she is a great stylist and has a terrific eye and her tablescapes have been very inspirational to me since I think I am missing the decorating gene. Thank you for featuring her here! Love to you both. XO, Jill

  23. Pam and Tamera,
    I just love this I Matter series! And the notion of crowning msyelf? There's nothing that says "I Matter" more than doing the things that make us feel like a queen! More important than the pampering, however, is that notion that we must treat ourselves like royalty if we are to be able to bestow generosity on others! Those bracelets are as amazing!

    1. You are so right, Annah. After I began to take care of myself again at age 50, I was amazed at how much more I could do for others. My desire to help others was invigorated when I began to take better care of myself. I had been having a pity party for a long time and when I stopped, I could focus on the needs of those around me in a healthier way. It is amazing how the two go together.

  27. Of course I matter and am unique! Empty nest is highly under-rated!

  28. I think the message is brilliant. As women I think we get trained early to gauge our worth based on how others view us, or by how much we DO for others.

  29. What a great message for all of us! WE DO MATTER :)
