This all started when I was trying to think of how I could raise $$$ for ministries that are close to my heart. The idea of making handcrafted bookmarks or “book jewelry” popped into my head. After ordering some materials and looking through my stash of vintage ribbons, beads, etc, I thought I’d give it a go.
Needless to say, the idea itself is always the easiest part. These little gems are a lot of work! But as I’ve given them away as gifts people really seemed to love them and I began receiving orders.
So though I may not make a lot of them as originally intended, I do enjoy the process and most of all, I love making something that will, in the end, result in blessing someone else – whether it’s the recipient of the bookmark or the ministries that are so dear to my heart.
