Hi!
Firstly apologies to greenfaerie! She sent me such awesome bookmarks and i haven't done them justice becasue i have posted pictures yet, i'm very sorry!


Here they all are crammed into the book i'm reading at the moment (i got a bit carried away in my excitement!)




I got an awesome southern kitsch bookmark! with little piggys on! i cannot believe you have a store called piggly wiggley  Cheesy

A route 66 one to represent my love of all things americana! I am very jealous of your trip btw greenfaerief  Smiley

I loved the coney island one - greenfaerie left the back in scrunchy vellum so that i could add my own pictures of my trip! its going to make a great memento - thank you. I think the idea of doing it in a representational style is awesome and the little metal coney on the bottom is adorable; This is how greenfaerie described it and i think it is much more eloquent than my excited babble! ; Stylized take on Coney Island marker:  Since I love Coney, but never have been there, I actually did this in a representational art style.  The yellow reminds me of the lights, the stitching both the rails of the coasters and the stitching on some of the proud freaks who perform there.  I put a sheet of puckered vellum on the back with the intention that you could glue a panoramic crop of your trip or even 3 small pictures to the back.  The metal "Coney" part I formed myself out of wire

and finally this cute little bookcorner which i think is my favourite - its a style that my partner used in alot of her wedding stuff and its beautiful your wedding must have been pretty as a picture, i'm honoured to be the first person you've used the style on since your wedding!

Thank you again greenfaerie!

and p.s i am loving the gallery everyone did such awesome jobs!

Here's the bookmarks I got from Zombie_Queen!

I gave her several themes to work from and we decided on 4 bookmarks.

She picked:

1) Dark Victoriana - a glittery, laminated tombstone with a raven & one of the classic Victorian grave saying "Remember me as you pass by, As you are now so once was I, As I am now so you will be, Preparre for Death, & Follow me" (And yes, I realize it is upside down, but my computer is being an SOB right now)


2) Sailor Jerry/Vintage Tattoo Imagery - fabric with geishas & snakes & skulls & & roses more (oh my); and a robe & bead string.


3) Crafting - a spool of thread button-thing on a giant paper clip style bookmark
4) Campy B-Horror Moves - embroidered zombie girl on a giant paper clip style bookmark


Thanks Zombie Queen! You totally got my themes, and I've started using a couple bookmarks already. Plus, the bonus tea & biscotti found a nice home - in my belleh! Smiley

Great bookmarks Psyche!  The spool of thread is the cutest thing ever....and even though I usually wouldn't think I'd like "dark" themes, I LOVE the gravestone bookmark.  But I have a creepy thing about liking to walk in cemeteries anyway.  Well, maybe not creepy, I think it's because it's quiet and historical.  Smiley
