How to make homemade bookmarks and cards : Another therapeutic hobby


Dear Friends,

I shared in my last post about 2 therapeutic hobbies that are helping me a lot, namely nature walk and photography. They helped me to relax.

Whenever I walk in the nature park, I am reminded of the great God Who created us and is caring for us daily. It helped me to remember to rest in Him :)

Photography helped me to capture some of the beauties of God's creations and be a constant reminder of Him and His greatness.

Another therapeutic hobby that helps me to relax and gives me a great sense of accomplishment and joy is making homemade bookmarks and cards using these photographs I have taken or photos that my friends shared with me.

I love to put in encouraging Bible verses or quotes to the pictures taken and made these homemade gifts for my friends. I also sell them on my little website business at Homemade Bookmarks Cards and Gifts.

Here are some simple bookmarks and cards. Feel free to download and print them for your family and friends. You may also sell them, if that will help you financially :-)

I took these pictures at Sentosa Flower Exhibition, Sentosa Island, Singapore. They are some of my favourite Bible verses.

To make the above homemade card for your friend, just do the following:

1) Download the picture above:
- Put your cursor on the picture
- Right Click your mouse
- Saved the .jpg picture into your computer

2)Insert this picture into a Word Processor (such as MicroSoft Word) or any other software.

3) Use a color printer to print.

Hi Lorie,

It's good to hear from you. I am keeping you in my prayers. Yes, chronic illnesses can really take alot from us. May our Lord continue to strengthen you and give you much grace as you look to Him. Continue to cast all your cares upon Him because He cares for you.

Dear Nancie,
I remember your writing about the bookmarks a long time ago. And I always thought it was a great idea, but forgot about it. This time, I plan to learn how to make these bookmarks and pursue this hobby.

Thanks for the info.

Hi Nancie, I'm with you on the nature walk. It's certainly very therapeutic and brings us closer to God. This makes me realised that I've not gone for walks of late. And your post certainly makes me feel like taking off right now and head to the park LOL. Will try to get off work early and do just that.

I remember your bookmarks and I admire your creativity. Thanks for sharing the steps to making them. Hope I'll get around to trying it out soon.

Thanks for dropping by and keeping my dad in your prayers. There's so much comfort in knowing that you're being prayed for. A big hug to you!

May God bless you richly!

Nancie said...

Keeping your dad and you in prayers still. A big hug back to you! May God bless you richly too! Take care.

Blessings Nancie, Your nature walks and photography are beautiful! I love looking at each photo. You truly have a gift in taking photos! But this post on "how to" is so excellent as well. I'm so glad that you are taking it easy & enjoying therapeutic hobbies like these! Your bookmarks are so precious! Whenever I hold one, I say a prayer for you. Today I saw you in a comment of a mutual friend, & my heart leapt with joy to know that you are coming back bit by bit...
I did not notice your previous posts in my dashboard, & I know I FOLLOW you. Have to check that out!

How beautiful & true your words of seeing God, Our Creator as you enjoy nature! I'm glad that you find REST & can relax! I pray your Homemade Bookmarks are prospering you & God is watching over you & your family with love & grace!
