What's Going On In Our World (The Blog)
^^^^BLATANT GEORGE STRAIT SONG REFERENCE^^^^
Everyone has one, and we can't be left out, so we have one too. Lori does most of the writing, but she tries really hard to get other contributors (cough: ERIC). It's a good thing she is the most interesting fan in the world. Stay nerdy my friends.

Holidays, Projects & Exclusives
From time to time, we will introduce a collection only for a particular ComiCon, Event, or Limited Time Only. Here is where you will find these things. Be aware though, they may disappear faster than the green bean salad at Thanksgiving dinner.
Words To Live By Project
This project is simple, yet has the potential to change the world. Select or customize a word charm that reminds, empowers, or inspires you. A gift for YOU! Then select another word charm for another person and give it to THEM as a gift. The gift isn't so much the charm as the conversation you will have when you tell the person why you chose that word for them. The conversation continues when it is "paid forward" from your chosen person, and the ripples of meaning and connection go out from there. In test markets, they not only sold out, but every experience was positive and life-changing. YOU HAVE TO TRY IT. It will change your world. Your charm can be fashioned into a necklace, bracelet, keychain, or zipper pull.
Activism & Causes
Because what is life if you can't make the world better. If you are passionate about something, chances are, someone else is too. And maybe that someone else is US! Even if it isn't, we can custom make your passion into a reality.
You haven't seen lamp light until you've seen it through the eyes of our Steampunk Lamp Artist Eric Embree. He is truly a creative genius who has created some amazing things. You owe it to yourself to have one of his pieces in your home.
COME SEE US
Want to know where you can buy our cool jewelry in person? Or better yet, see our beautiful mugs in the flesh & get our autographs (who knows, they may be worth millions--no billions one day)? Look no further!
Here is where you’ll see our upcoming calendar. You can even make an appointment to come look around in Lori’s studio, especially if you bring sugar cookies. They’re her favorite.
The Art Gallery
All of these items have found homes, can you believe it? We didn’t even have to die first in order for them to be valuable to someone. We will forever miss them, but we have pictures of most to remember them by. If you see something you like here, we can probably create something similar for you! Give us a holler!
