I celebrated my 1,000th post at Praying for Grace last week. To celebrate, I gave away a rosary. Because my 1,000th post was on the Feast of Mercy, and about Divine Mercy Sunday, I decided to make it a Divine Mercy rosary.
Made with handmade 8 mm blue and white pearl polymer clay beads, glazed and strung with Czech glass crystal and Japanese pearl seed beads in between. The center is a pewter Divine Mercy center and the crucifix is a beautiful carved pewter crucifix.
Congratulations to Ellen, whose name was drawn.
Due to unemployment, and thus financial hardship, I have changed my policy of not adding labor cost to my rosaries. I hope that you can understand why this is necessary and will continue to support my apostolate. At this time I need to support my family with my skills and resources. I have not added much to the cost of each item -- not as much as most vendors would, doubling or tripling their cost -- but just enough to contribute a small amount to my family's income.
