Sometimes I just feel like I need a spoonerism to get through the morning.

Last year I was in somewhat of a bookmark-making craze. They weren't really for myself, as I prefer the old dog-ear/spine-breaking tent methods, but they were very fun to make. We didn't do much work in class near the end of the year so I just toted my case from class to class and worked on them.

They're made of cardstock, hand-painted with highly watered-down acrylic. The text is hand-drawn in fineliner, and the font is Old English Text MT, on most Miscrosoft Word programs. Some are decorated with rhinestones, and the letters of Pingle have had pins pushed through to create holes that let through the sun prettily.

Wheel of fortuuuune


Groovier Than Though, Christmas in July, Fancypants


Make Your Mark, She of the Knee-High Socks, Pingle (nickname)


Just for fun, the back of She of the Knee-High Socks


My favourite group: Playing with Fire, Creature from the Deep, Fridge Magnet Poetry


And lastly, my handy-dandy carrying case, containing blank bookmarks, a pencil, fineliner, packets of rhinestones and glue, plus a referential Old English Text MT alphabet.


Thanks for reading!

These are really cool!  I think my favorite would have to be 'groovier than thou.'
