For those of us who haven't quite succumbed to Kindles, Kobos, Nooks or
any other e-readers - how about a bookmark for a real book!
A really simple project and it features just one die -
Striking in black and white and using just the flower centre to create a
pretty top and bottom edging for the bookmark.
Keeping the panel as flat as possible so it sits snugly inside your book but
making the top flower decoration dimensional so it overhangs.
Of course, if you no longer have books -
you could just use a portion of this to create a card or gift tag.
I admit to owning a Kindle, in fact the boys bought it for me but I do still love a
bookcase full of books.
Huge thanks to you all for your encouraging comments, they are such a comfort.
I did laugh out loud when Amanda referred to 'Embersonettes' - that is so good!
We had a relaxing weekend although Mitchell was kept a little busy....
He is looking to earn some money (having a girlfriend is a costly business!)
and the shop front needs a face lift.
Yes, that is the outline of feet and it does say 'Chiropody' and 'Treat Your Feet' !!
Some time ago the shop was a chiropodist ....
(thankfully I've never found any toenail nail clippings - yuk!)
They applied lots of vinyl stickers and the owner before me just painted over them.
We realised the stickers were beginning to reveal themselves so the only course of action was to peel them off and sand the wood down before repainting.
That is quicker said than done!
Mitchell is going back today to start the painting, wood is being replaced so no more rotting bits -
it will look all spruced up ready for later this year when I get back in the swing of things :)
Thank you again dear friends, I will be dropping by to leave posts,
I enjoy writing them and of course, hearing from you all.
