2013 Earth Day Giveaway

Spring is such an exciting time of year with plenty of reasons to celebrate. Here at SariBlue we like to celebrate the change of the season, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and of course Earth Day. Earth Day is a great occasion to focus on the health of our planet.

Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day is observed on April 22 each year. The April 22 date was designated as International Mother Earth Day by a consensus resolution adopted by the United Nations in 2009. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries every year. You can learn more about Earth day on the wiki page (where this info came from) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_Day .

There is great information about ways in which Earth Day has impacted all of us globally and how you can support the efforts on The Earth Day Network. They coordinate amazing events and ways to participate in the grassroots effort of A Billion Acts of Green .

This year we celebrate Earth Day with a few of our friends by sharing an eco-friendly giveaway. SariBlue and the shops that are participating in this giveaway are all eco-friendly artisans. We hope you enjoy learning a little bit about these amazing women owned and run small shops and enter the giveaway for a chance to win some truly beautiful items. The rafflecopter has all the info on how to enter and we all appreciate your support. Please feel free to share this with your friends!

SariBlue® expands the Baby Belly Bell™ Collection

SariBlue® loves babies, we love moms, we love families, we love pregnant woman and we really love making meaningful jewelry. Our original Baby Belly Bells™ have been part of pregnancy journeys for hundreds of our customers and their families.

Our design is so unique it has recently been trademarked, and we are really thrilled about this.

Making each Baby Belly Bell™ brings me joy and happiness; sometimes I think I get more excited about sending one to a customer than they do.

I really believe pregnancy, babies, family are life’s biggest gift. It is so important to love every minute of your pregnancy and what better way to celebrate your growing bump than a special piece of jewelry made expressly for you. [Read more…]

Backstage at The 46th CMA Awards

The 46th Annual CMA Awards was awesome! If you happened to see the event on TV you would know the little skits, the performances, the acceptance speeches were fun and an authentic display of love of music and sincerest gratitude from those who are lucky enough to have great talent.

The event like most things that week was greatly impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Many of the performers and people involved in the event were delayed and impacted by the huge storm.

Despite the despair caused by the storm the awards event carried on and very sweetly paid many tributes to those who were directly hurt by the storm. I really liked Brad Paisley’s performance of “Southern Comfort Zone” and the shout out via the Jay-Z/Alicia Keys’ song “Empire State of Mind”. [Read more…]

Meet Anthony V: Tattoo Artist, Multi-Media Creator, Canadian, and all around cool cat

Somehow this month, these weeks have gotten away from me, where does the time go here in New England in the fall?

Today I find myself super thankful for being safe, having a roof without trees through it and thinking of everyone hit by the storm that was…..

Our featured artist for the month (well it is the last day of October) is Anthony V. Anthony is someone I have known for YEARS. We met while working together at a strange little place and instantly became friends. His kindness, creativity and humor are like magnets and I was totally drawn to him. We connected in an odd place and time, he is someone I do not see a lot, but think of often.

SO you say, what is his story? What odd place do you know him from?

An rarely known fact about me… and maybe more commonly known fact about Anthony… we worked together at an old New England farm that was transformed into one of US’s first and largest horror theme park: Spookyworld. Anthony was recruited and brought into to help make Spookyworld a truly creepy and fantastic place to scare the pants off of people. He has amazing skills in the artistry of makeup, model making and a great sense of drama. If you ever need a fantastic artist or are seeking an original piece of body art Ant is your man. Let’s see what inspires him: [Read more…]
