Well, hello there!

Hello and good Wednesday morning my blogging friends! It has been a while, but I have a fun little post to share with you all today.  I have been able to craft for a few minutes here in there with lots of breaks due to my shoulder/arm still giving me lots of pain, but I managed to finish this very simple project. I've used all Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and with these fabulous bookmark stamps from this month' release it was easy as can be.

Paper:  PTI White, Recollections Kraft, Kraft paper sacks (bought at Michael's, they are the smaller ones 3 1/2" x 6 3/4" and can be found in their gift wrapping section) BoBunny Country Garden Collection
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, VersaFine Onyx Black, Tim Holtz Ditressing Ink Tea Dye
Accessories:  Spellbinders for Our Daily Bread Designs Bookmark Dies, Spellbinders Labels 18, seam binding, Cheery Lynn Designs Fanciful Flourish, Prima flowers, felt bird, Binder ring
See, very simple! I had this idea in my head as my girls both read a lot and always loose their bookmarks. My little one brings home school library books every week and they always have those library cards in the back of them, so I thought if I create a pocket/bag for the bookmark and tuck the bookmark in it, chances are they will not as easily get lost. Well, I won't be able to temporarily attach these right here to the library books, but all of those books we buy from Scholastic, I can easily add some removable double sided tape to the back of the pocket and adhere it to inside cover of the books my  "TT" is reading or I just leave them bound together with the ring and put them in a little basket next to her reading chair, that way everything can be at her little fingers touch.
Well, this is it for me for today! Thanks so much for stopping by. I know I have been a bad blogging friend, but this injury does not allow me to type for long periods of time. I can still only do 10 minutes here and there. This post took forever to type ;D.  So, please, accept my apology, just as soon as I can handle it I will be back.
Hugs and blessings,

Sabrina, what a precious idea for your DD's books to hold their place as well as be a reminder of their Mom's love for them - they are all beautiful!!

Please take card, my sweet Friend, praying for you arm and shoulder to heal up quickly.

Sabrina, no need to apologize at all. I'm just glad that you feel well enough to do a few minutes of crafting. The bookmarks are so pretty, I know your girls will love them. Continuing to pray for healing...

GOOD to see you, Sabrina!! Beautiful job on these bookmark holder/tags! I have missed you. Keep up with that physical therapy. It can make all the difference if you stick with it. I'm not sure what I would do if I could not do my paper crafting!!
