These lacy pumpkin colored bookmarks are mine, all mine! Just kidding. I’ve made them available to buy at Funkydeb, my online store at Etsy.com. In the past I have made many of these for my friends in an array of different colors: black, red, cobalt blue, etc. All my friends love them just as much as I love making them! I can’t remember where in the world I found the pattern otherwise I would direct you to the website or make the pattern available. I dunno, maybe it’s old age creeping up on me or something of the like but I think it’s because I’m not organized! (I think I will talk about organizing papers in my next blog).
Happily, there are many people out there who still love to read real books. Oh I’m not against technology per Se but when I’m done looking at a bright computer screen all day, I love to pick up something tangible to touch, feel, and delve into such as a good paperback/hard cover about crocheting or cooking, etc. I know that anyone who loves to read books also loves to have something to mark the last page read. Some people dog ear their pages but others like to use other paraphernalia to stick into the last page that they’ve read: envelopes, pieces of torn paper, paper bookmarks, sticky notes, and the list goes on.
However, to make my own reading worth while and to give myself a bit of a lift, I adore using these bookmarks to close the book on my reading experience. Basically when I stick one of these babies into my book, I smile. It’s good to smile. It takes more muscles to frown than it is to smile. And some days it’s dog gone hard to smile, isn’t it.
All in all, if you’d like to buy one, give me a shout at my online shop and we can discuss prices, color, etc. I’m not hard nosed in my prices either; I need to make profit for sure however I like to have satisfied customers. Isn’t that what selling used to be about? The ‘customer is always right’ used to be the norm. Anyhow, have a wonderful day, week, year, and hope to hear from you soon. Ta ta!
