I had just four days to find a gift for my niece’s last-minute baptism this week, so I turned to my trusty friend Amazon.com in hopes of finding something special that could also be two-day shipped.
The site offered quite a few cute baby bracelets with crosses, some of which had a little poem attached suggesing that the recipient save the bracelet to wear again on her wedding day. Unfortunately none of these were available to ship fast enough so I decided to DIY it.
Most of the companies selling these bracelets were smart enough to blur the product pictures so much that it was impossible to make out the text of the poem. But with a bit of guesswork, I deciphered one of the poems. The original wording of the poem suggested the baptism bracelet be attached to a garter in its next life. I found this somewhat distasteful, so I reworded the last stanza a bit and printed it on some cute paper at the office supply store.
Here’s a link to the bracelet pictured in the photo:
