New product, Re- purposed Prayer Journals

This is an item I've been wanting to make for several years now and finally got all my thoughts and ideas together.

Re-purposed prayer journals made from vintage book covers
Prayer requests can pile up, we all know that. And it can be a burden to remember it all. This organizer journal will help with that and hopefully, enhance your prayer life as well.
Comes with a vintage skeleton key bookmark.
Book is broken down into 2 sections. The first is for Adoration of our Father, Confession and Thanksgiving. This you will do each time you sit down with your journal to pray.Then comes Supplication. This is divided into 7 sections. One for Family, Friends, The Lost, The Church, The Nation, and the Sick and injured. A 7th section is unassigned for you to use as you feel lead.
There are pages to write the requests down and you will focus your prayers on one section each day of the week. For Example, Monday pray for Family requests, Tuesday for Friends and so on.
If you are interested in one of these journals they are $13 plus shipping. Or just make one for yourself, using the method I've explained.

These make great gifts and I can customize it with the cover of your choice. I have a lot of covers available. Many more than I've pictured.

Just email me at and we'll talk about your preferences.

I also have Day Planner organizers, Diary Journals, & Address books available with the same cover choices.

19 pcs in 2 days, New Jewelry Creations ala Junque

Finally my jewelry is starting to sell at Winnie & Tulula's . Partly because Wendy and Gloria are merchandising it so well with their fabulous clothing. So after my visit to my space last week I realized I needed to get back into the workshop and make some new pieces.

Well here you go 2 days 19 pcs and all using stuff I already had.

Whew... I had a slow start, but once I got going, I was like the energizer bunny. I just wish it didn't make my back hurt so much to sit at the work bench. I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong with my posture.

Anywhoo, this and more will be going to Winnie & Tulula's starting next week. Probably on Thursday.
