Words that won’t make your tween roll her eyes

Sometimes when I talk to my ten year-old daughter, she’s so busy sighing and trying to stay awake despite my obvious stupidity that she doesn’t exactly hear me. But when she pulls her new necklace from Pickled Tink out of her stocking, this year, she’ll be too smitten with how pretty it is to remember to scoff at the positive messages on it.

It’s like pop art meets typewriter keys, in a rainbow of colors and patterns. So go ahead and pick loved and joy and any of their other words (or ones of your own) while building a bracelet or necklace of charms. Whatever you choose, she’ll get the message in style, loud and clear. -Mir
