Look on the Bright Side Day

December 21st, 2011 · 3 Comments

Even though today is the official start of Winter, we hope you can find the positive parts of this cold season. That’s why today we’re celebrating National Look on the Bright Side Day, celebrated every December 21. Today we hope you join us as we think optimistically and find the positive parts to our adventures (and misadventures!). It is winter solstice, which means it’s the shortest day of the year but also a great chance to discover new beading techniques as you hunker down for long stays inside.

In celebration of today, browse our site for some yummy bright colors and free fun ideas you can try at home! Whether you’re in the mood for festive pieces or looking forward to nights in front of a roaring fire, think positive and find inspiration from the world around you during these chilly days. Below are some fun and bright ideas you can try to get in the spirit. Happy day to you all!

    These are all beautiful! I think my favorite is the Cheetah Chain Belt but I love birds so it’s hard to choose between that and the Shakespeare’s Starling Necklace. Love them both :)

    Oh goodness, your site has so many reasons to look on the bright side. I want to order everything. I am especially partial to Swarovski; you have the best selection. I also appreciate all your tips and design suggestions. Thank you!! :) )

    As a “glass half full” kind of girl, I always look on the bright side! Have a sparkly Solstice! :)
