Beaded Bungee Bookmarks Review

The name of the wonderful company who made this bookmark for me is called Twin Cottage Industries. It is run by two identical twin sisters, Carol Amos and Kathy Getto. Carol lives in Fallon, Nevada and Kathy lives outside of Boise, Idaho.

When they first contacted me I had no idea what to expect but when these two bookmarks arrived I was really stunned at the work that went into them. Going with the theme of my website they made one of the bookmarks a cup of tea sitting in a saucer with a spoon beside it.

I know the picture does not do it justice because no matter how I tried to take the picture it never really caught the detail that went into the charm. These bookmarks are on bungee cords that you can adjust to any length that you need from small to large.

What I love most about these two incredible women is that they hold down full time jobs, Carol works at a local high school and Kathy works for Boise State University. They use to be able to do these themselves but as their business grew they had to hire some outside help. And this is the best part, they hired mentally disabled young adults and women with a need to work from home.

They give 1% of their gross sales to the Psychiatric Service Dog Society. This company in turn pairs dogs with the severely mentally disabled to assist them in whatever they may need.

I tried to take as good a picture as I could of the second bookmark they sent but my camera is not the best in the world but the little bead in the middle of this that looks like a white light is actually a beautiful shade of purple.

Again, they tried to match what I liked which my site is done in pink and purple and so they went with that theme also. They sell other products on their website such as Adora Pulls that is used for elderly to put on something that is hard for them to grip and then pull so this charm is bigger and helps them do that.

They have key clips, lanyards, water bottle charms and even a soap with hand felted wool that acts like an exfoliate. It will wear off more as time goes on and you use the soap more.

Here is all the information needed to take a look for yourselves at all the wonderful things that these remarkable people do:
