Charmed, I'm sure.

Posted by Anna Kate Thursday, December 29, 2011

Each year, Leadership Consultants typically collect something on the road during their year of travel.  In the past, Consultants have collected everything from Christmas ornaments to Tervis Tumblers, t-shirts, postcards, and I'm sure many other things.  I decided to collect charms at every visit, so that by May I would have a full bracelet to forever represent this amazing year.  When I got home for the holidays, my sister (who has recently taken up jewelry making as a hobby) graciously offered to attach all of the charms I collected this semester to my bracelet.  This was no easy task as some of the "charms" weren't even charms -- they were earrings, lapel pins, necklaces, etc.  Not every school store carries charms, so I had to get a little creative.

I am still missing a few charms (Florida Southern, Furman, and Tulane) but have ordered all of them except for Tulane (if you know where I can find a Green Wave charm, please let me know).  I also still really want to order an ear of corn as my last charm for the semester -- although the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is already represented already on my bracelet, I visited our chapter there (Alpha Epsilon!!) three times this semester and think they deserve to be represented more than once.  Plus, I will always think of an ear of corn first and foremost when I think of Nebraska...Who doesn't?
As my next semester as a Leadership Consultant quickly approaches, I can't wait to see what charms I will add to complete my bracelet!
