Hello Bodacious Bijous family. April is a month that's near and dear to my heart because it contains so many holidays highlighting important causes.
Lupus Alert Day
First, April 1 is Lupus Alert Day. I have been hard at work creating some designs that I will be donating the proceeds from toward Lupus awareness, throughout the month of April, and support for the 1.5 million Americans living with this disease.
Empowered Women Entrepreneurs Day
As a female business owner, I'm also thrilled about Empowered Women Entrepreneurs Day on April 7. Do feel free to send me some of your own stories about starting a business as a woman that I can share with my followers!
World Creativity and Innovation Day
Next up is World Creativity and Innovation Day, which takes place on April 21. This is a day that's so important to me as an artist. I hope you will take some time out on this day to study some of the great artists and innovators doing big things in the world.
Earth Day arrives on April 22 as a reminder to treasure this planet that we call home because we only get one chance. I really do try to make every day Earth Day here at Bodacious Bijous by always shipping your purchases to you in reusable fabric drawstring bags.
April: Stress Awareness Month
Finally, I want to draw attention to the fact that April is also Stress Awareness Month. Have you been guilty of overlooking how stress may be impacting your physical and mental health? I know I'm as guilty of this as anyone. However, I hope we can all be intentional about taking time for self-care. One of the ways that I remind myself to take time out for myself is my beautiful amethyst bead bracelet that helps with anxiety. I'll have this bracelet for sale in my shop during April if you're looking for a stunning piece of jewelry that is also packed with positive intentions!
