Hello and welcome to Handmade Marks! I'm so glad you're here.
My name is Debi and I'm the face behind Handmade Marks. I have been creative for as long as I can remember, usually having more than one project on the go at a time! After sending our wedding thank you cards, we had a surplus of blank cards. I got doodling and before long, I had too many to send myself, and found myself ordering more blank cards...and that is how Handmade Marks was born!
Living on the edge of the Cotswolds provides me with endless inspiration and a leisurely pace of life to design and make (in between my day job as a primary school teacher!). I often marvel at God's creation and feel extremely fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the UK.
From the very beginning, I've strived to encourage others and point to Jesus with my designs. In Colossians 3:2, the instruction is to "Set your minds on things above, not earthly things."; I sincerely hope that the cards I make point people to Jesus.
Sending and receiving post is one of my favourite things and I feel honoured to be part of others sending joy, hope and love to their friends too.
