One of a Kind

Summertime means time for fun, family, exploring, learning.
FIndlay resident and YMCA member Grace Palmer has discovered a great way to embrace all these joys of summer into one activity by crafting one-of-a-kind bracelets, charms, and other beautiful jewelry in the comfort of her home.   
When speaking to Grace earlier this week, I asked what her motivation was for crafting these items. She smiled and said, “Because I like to make people happy.” You’ve succeeded Grace.  I’ll be wearing my “Grace Originals” to your tennis lesson next week!  🎾. 
Grace created these little gems for me after noticing the colors of my outfits this week at her tennis lessons! 

Grace is the daughter of Paul and Sarah Palmer.   
She has a brother, Quin, who also plays tennis. 🎾
