Congratulations Kathy Bommarito and Karen Rideout ~ The Newest Hoot Mama and Origami Owl® Team Leaders!!!

Hey Hoot Mamas!!  Happy Monday to you all!  I hope you guys had a great weekend!!

Team Hoot Mamas just celebrated it's 20th Team Leader promotion in August and I couldn't be more proud. What an amazing group of intelligent ladies that have joined me on this journey!   We truly are Building Dreams One Locket at a Time!

I am so excited to introduce to you today Kathy Bommarito and Karen Rideout,  two new Team Leaders on my amazing Hoot Mamas team.  Origami Owl® would not have been possible if I didn't ask others to join this journey with me.  Team Hoot Mama is comprised of some of the most fabulous and hard-working women I've ever met.  It's truly an honor to lead these women and to call so many of them my friends! 

Kathy Bommarito ~ Team Leader - Caledonia, MI
Hi, I’m Kathy Bommarito, a Team Leader with Origami Owl®.  I'm a wife and stay-at-home mom of five awesome kids! My husband & I were married in Jamaica ten years ago and our kids are now 14, 13, 8, & 6 year old twins!  I’ve been a stay-at-home-mom since my twins were born.  I call myself a “mom-preneur” because in that time I have started and owned several businesses, including a cake decorating business and a retail company promoting the Great Lakes, which we donate part of our proceeds back to the conservation of the Great Lakes and Lighthouse restoration.  I love summer & the beach, and I spend as much time at the beach as possible in the summertime!  So what’s in my locket?  I have the palm tree for my husband, a MOM charm for my kids, flip-flops, lighthouse, sun and a cupcake!!  That’s my story!

I joined the company last summer and it’s been a truly amazing experience!  Since my kids are now all in school, I was looking for a job opportunity that would allow me to be home with them after school and available to take them to their sports and activities.  While at my son’s baseball tournament, I walked over to an outdoor craft market and saw the Origami Owl® booth.  I was amazed! The jewelry was so sparkly and beautiful!  I immediately fell in love with Bella’s story and the concept of creating a meaningful piece of jewelry.  I went home that night, Googled Origami Owl® and found Karen’s blog.  I contacted her and joined right away.  I’m so glad I did, it’s been such a blessing in my life.  I recently bought a (new to me) vehicle and took my family on vacation!  All because of the income I earned doing Jewelry Bars!
I first joined Origami Owl® because I loved the jewelry and wanted to make money, but I now love being a designer and I love this company!  Origami Owl® gives you all the tools you need to have a successful business.  I’m having so much fun; I still can’t believe I get paid to do this!  I have met many inspiring people and I’ve been able to encourage and inspire others as well!  I never knew how much I would enjoy being able to help women tell their personal stories through their own customized jewelry!  And now that I have my own team, Team LocketMamas, I’m able to support and motivate them, which is also very rewarding!   Feel free to contact me at or for more information about Origami Owl® or to join Team LocketMamas! Mentor #35718.

Karen Rideout ~ Team Leader - Mendon, MA

Hi!  I’m Karen and I am so proud to be a Team Leader with Origami Owl!  I recently moved to MA and am thrilled to have the opportunity to spread the O2 love here!  I was so happy to be able to start my business with friends in Pennsylvania where it took off like a rocket because everyone just falls in love with these products!!
My Background:  I grew up in Long Island, NY and travel back as often as I can.  Opportunity knocks and my husband’s career has brought our family to Upstate NY, Pennsylvania and now Massachusetts – and my beautiful daughters are troopers through it all!  It’s a great life lesson to see what the future holds for us, but I do know that am taking Origami Owl with me every step of the way.
The Origami Owl love started for me in early 2013 when I saw someone’s locket posted on Facebook, I couldn’t stop thinking about that gorgeous locket!  When I woke up the next day I immediately signed up online!  It was while I was on the old wait list that I found Hoot Mama Lockets - and I count my blessings every day that I found Karen’s blog!   I couldn’t ask for a better mentor and leader to guide me on this journey. 
It’s important for me to say that I do not have a sales background but I do have a passion for the product and the company!  And if you love the product and share your story through your locket, then guess what?  You’re already ‘selling’ Origami Owl! 
I have met a great group of women since I started with OO whether they be guests, hostesses or my fabulous team members!  If you are ready to take the next step then I would be happy to help you on your journey!
You can email me at to learn more about this amazing company and what it can do for you!
