VC Rocks Bookmark Swap

I hosted a swap called "Save That Page" a couple of months ago for VC Rocks.  I took pictures of all of the bookmarks are received thinking I would get the pictures posted while I was in a hotel room with nothing to do at night.  It was quite late by the time I we were settled in hotel rooms and getting on my laptop was not on my list of things to do.  We spent a week with my mom and by the time we got to where we were moving, we explored the area we would be living in, cleaned and painted the house waiting for our things to arrive.  It was a busy time.  I still need to finish my sewing/stamping area.  I'm missing a couple of boxes, one being my cardstock.  I need to go through our storage area to be sure it didn't get put there with the Christmas boxes.

This first bookmark is by Brenda Hugar.  I took a picture of it closed and opened.


Catie Palmer made a bookmark that has magnets on the other side of the circle.  I love that type of bookmark because you don't have to worry about the bookmark falling out if you drop the book.
This next one is by Debbie Peterson.  I never would have thought to use that sentiment for a bookmark.  Happy colors too.
I like this one by Elizabeth Kratzer with the layers of the flower and the ribbon at the bottom.
Ellen Boyle caught my attention with the red glitter paper she used for the heart on the owl.
Jamie Adcock made this ribbon butterfly.  Super cute!
Jane Starr made this one.  The colors are calm and relaxing.  Nicely done!
I like this one by Karen Gibson because it opens up.  I envision using it to write what books I read and who the author was.  You could always use it to list books you'd like to read too, or perhaps a favorite quote from a book.  So many possibilities . . .
Laura McGee made a corner bookmark.  The shiny piece in the corner is washi tape.  Starfish to remind me of the Florida I left.
Shirley Northey made several bookmarks for the corner page or a paperclip.
As a side note, I just finished "The Dressmaker of Khair Khana" by Gayle Lemmon.  I found the Kamila to be a person to admire for her perseverance and love of family and community.  The book is simply written but worth reading.
