A few snapshots behind the why of Imani Design

It all began because of LOVE. I fell in love with these precious people in Africa and life has not been the same since. It was upon my return from our first trip that God told me to step out in faith. "Imani" - Faith in swahili. Somehow God was going to use the gifts He had given me to accomplish His will in my life and the life of others. My job was simple and complex all in one move - to step forward in FAITH.

So, I thought I would share a couple pictures that warm my heart. They are precious reminders for me to keep stepping forward in faith step by step!

All of the beadwork in the Tumaini Hope line is made by women who are participating in a training program where they are learning to create and sell items to improve their quality of life. These women
face many hardships as it is difficult to raise enough money for their most basic needs.
Each jewelry piece sold helps make lasting change in their lives.

This particular design has SO MANY variations of ways you can wear it. Belt, Long necklace, Wrap Necklace. It is simply a beautiful design - a lovely piece to WOW people with.

Meet Lily, My New Girl: Vintage Mannequin Dress Form Beauty

Don't ask me how -or- why... but this new addition to our family has had the name Lily bestowed upon her. We found her  as we were passing by a garage sale. SCREEEEEECH - we came to a sudden stop in order to snatch this little treasure up.

At first I wan't too sure about her. She was vintage alright, and she had character, but I wasn't sold on  what I would do with her with that bow on her chest. Still I couldn't pass up on the extremely low penny it required to make her mine. Turning it quickly was an option with the low listing price we could still make money on with a re-sale.

Well, after taking some ebay photos with her I am now IN complete LOVE with her. She is a delight. I will post some of the ebay pics I took later to show you how nicely she displays treasures to be sold. .

She is a wonderful addition to our family. I can't tell you what we have been doing all these years without her. Welcome Lily!!!

ALL Aboard...Next Stop Africa: mission trips & online store

First of all we would like to say a HUGE...

{source: imagine foundation}

for the AMAZING support we received over the weekend. We were completely blown away by all of the enthusiastic and heart felt customers we met. You ladies ROCK!

Several of you were very interested in future involvement. Many were wondering about purchasing more jewelry on an online store. Great news! We have found a site that will fit the bill for us and it will be up and running shortly. 

The other common question was - how do I sign up to go? Oh how this makes me leap with joy! We LOVE to meet people who are being called to GO! So for those of you who asked, I am staying true to my word and posting the next steps here for you. It is most likely CTK will have two trips heading out this summer:  One to Arusha, Tanzania and the other team is the one my husband and I lead to Nairobi, Kenya. The information meetings and training meetings will be posted on the CTK Missions Community Page. There is also a separate page for CTK Kenya Mission trips and Tanzania as well. 

Again let us give a great big SHOUT OUT to all of  you who stopped by and supported what we are doing. We are so, so, so very thankful for each and every one of you!

Jewelry from Africa: Making a Difference

Kelly Minter @ WOW Conference: Step into the Power

Upcoming Show! 

Hey guess what's up with Imani? We have been busy, busy, busy getting the items we brought back from Africa all prettied up for you. Well, for you if.... you will be joining us at the Women of Whatcom's Conference: Step into the Power. It is this coming weekend @ CTK Bellingham on Meridian in Bellingham, WA. For the details click on the link under the photo of Kelly posted above.

What could be better then listening to someone who has a heart for Jesus, sitting with other women who are eager to soak it all in, and being able to help make a difference around the world? I am SO looking forward to this. It is a bunch of my favorites all wrapped into two fun-filled days.

We would love to see you there. If you mention you saw this post you will get a free Maasai Bag with a $20 purchase. (As supplies last).
