Bookmark Swap Fabulousness!


Last month, Cassie of Vegan Fox in the Snow hosted a vegan bookmark swap and I jumped in to participate. It is such a good idea: swappers exchanged homemade bookmarks with a vegan or animal theme.

I received my bookmark yesterday, from Michelle and Lilly of DirtyDuck blog. And it's extra-special because Lilly generously contributed some of her errant feathers...anyone who reads Michelle's blog is smitten with Lilly and the rest of the household over at Michelle's place, and so I'm sure can understand how special and fun this is. The feathers are attached with beautiful white ribbon and pretty beads:


This is a deluxe bookmark; the three ribbons allow you to mark your place in the book on three separate pages, and you can even adjust the lengths by pulling on the beads at the top:


And, it's attached to a special dealy-bob so you can use it as a bookmark or a hair pin! It's fabulous! Thanks Michelle and Lilly, you're a clever and creative pair.

I forgot to take a picture of the bookmark I sent, but you can see it over at Molly's blog as well as her fab bookmark creation too.

Thanks again to Cassie for hosting this fun swap!

    And the one you made for Molly is adorable!

  3. That's so great! When I saw the photos in the e-mail I didn't realize that it was adjustable, that's amazing!

  4. I really like string book marks (cleverly yet annoyingly marketed as book thongs) - the triple place-marker is a great addition! Michelle did a great job with her bookmark, and you did too.

  5. Wow, did Michelle used to be a professional bookmark maker? See, this is why I didn't join - not only for the lack of time, but mine would have been colored cardboard!

  11. Wow, that quite the bookmark. Reading will be so much more fun when you can glance at that beauty every so often. Lilly is a real sport to donate her feathers for DD's crafty efforts!

    Yes, it will add another dimension of enjoyment to any book, right now though I have it hanging as a decoration in our living room. :)

  14. Well done! And so versatile! That's very clever to have multiple saving capacity, because sometimes I dogear my books (STOP JUDGING ME) to save several pages.

    Its full potential would have gone unrealized if I had gotten it, because I don't have enough hair to clip things into.

  15. Rose, I've just linked over here from Vegan Fox and have been guiltily enjoying reading some of your back posts when I should actually have been showering and getting dressed! I'll return to read more (and bookmark some of your great food ideas!) when I have 'official' time to do it!

    I'm amazed at how many of my favourite bloggers are following your blog when I hadn't seen it before. This will be remedied! I'm about to add you to my blogroll.

  16. Good Luck Duck

    Yes, the multiple page saving is brilliant! Don't worry about judging; I've been known to dogear myself...I mean books, not me. :D

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by. There are so many wonderful blogs and part of the fun is discovering new ones via other bloggers.

    I've been following your blog for quite some time, but I should be the one feeling guilty, as I was lurking w/o comments; I shall lurk no more :D
