How It Started ~ The Ribbon Necklace
It all started with the Ribbon Necklace
I love beautiful things!
I love having them around me.
I LOVE creating them.
Seeing what I can do with my own hands.
About 5 years ago, we were missionaries to Ukraine home on our second furlough. Traveling was hard because I couldn't create my own "little home", I had nothing creative I could do. So I started making ribbon necklaces for my girls. When we visited churches, people would come up and ask where I got those necklaces and purses from. When they found out that I made them, they would say, "You ought to start selling them!" I did not think that was something that I could handle as I missionary, so just smiled and said, "Thank you!" If I had opportunity, I would give out some of the things I made to Pastor's daughters or people we stayed with.
Little did I know how the Lord would work! When he called us back to the States, I kind of stopped making them as we had to start setting up house again with nothing. That kept me busy for a while!
I am so excited about this next step! What was once a "nice thought" is now starting to happen!
