More and more pretties every time I look in the gallery.  (I'm loving that voodoo doll bookmark!)

I have received my final bookmarks, which is awesome!...but sad.  Until next round, though, I'll be enjoying the gallery.  And here are the final additions to my collection.

Crystallized_art sent me a corner bookmark (my first ever, actually), with interchangeable images.  Here's the bookmark in use:

(It's inside The Unwritten, Vol. I:  Tommy Taylor and the Bogus Identity.  I thought it appropriate to pair a sideshow-themed bookmark with an image of a winged cat!)

In this picture, you can see the back of the bookmark, as well as the other three image options:

The little image cards attach to the bookmark with little Velcro circles.  Thanks, crystallized_art!  This was a really creative bookmark style!  (And a girl can never have too many sideshow performers...)

Finally, kittenmittens sent a fanciful twisted-wire clip-style bookmark, shown in a journal (received in another swap, I believe):

Here's a view of the bookmark (very floral and organic, isn't it?) as well as a couple extras (a decorative paper band with perfect bookmark proportions Cheesy and a fragrant glycerin soap):

Thanks, kittenmittens -- it's great!

I found a plain wooden humidor at a flea market.  It had very nice lines and color, so I bought and decorated it in a steampunk style.  Today, I gave it to my friends as a wedding gift.

In use (as a card holder) on the gift table:

I was pretty pleased with it, and even more pleased that everyone else seemed to like it, too!

Thanks for looking!

I received 3 bookmarks today, 2 simple-but-elegant thong/tassel markers from DarthSqurl and one fun paper collage from Rainbowsaurus.

Here's an "action shot" of the gold tassel bookmark from DarthSqurl:

Here's a closeup, the better to appreciate the cute little orange button:

Here's a closeup of the bauble atop the purple thong marker from DarthSqurl:

And here you can see the bottom bits as well:

I love the little silver eye bead and, of course, the wee little key.  (One of my theme suggestions was "skeleton keys.")  Thanks, DarthSqurl!!!

"Circus sideshows" was another of my theme suggestions, so I got a double-sided collage of vintage freak-show images from Rainbowsaurus.  Here's the front:

And here's the back:

(FYI, it's inside The Bibliophile's Devotional.)  Thanks, Rainbowsaurus -- this is right up my midway alley!!!

As I was addressing my unofficial envelopes today, I noticed PureOath and Tero both live in LA. So I googlemapped the locations. Thirty minutes apart! That's really neat!

Thirty minutes in L.A. traffic?  So, that's, like, half a block, right?  Tongue
8  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Bookmark Swap Round 3 (Signups 07/15-08/04, Send-outs 'extended' 09/07) on: September 05, 2010 06:21:21 PM
So I've just finished my second book during this swap duration and now I'm turning to the group for suggestions - what should I read next for entertainment?
I finished:
Julie and Julia by Julie Powell -and-
Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore.
I'd give about a B- to both. I enjoyed 'Eat Pray Love' and 'Lamb' so much more.
Anyone read Powell's next book Cleaving?

I think Christopher Moore may be one of those hit-or-miss authors.  I really enjoyed A Dirty Job, but I couldn't finish You Suck.

First of all:  Yay, a Sneetch!

Second:  A couple people mentioned The Phantom Tollbooth earlier in the gallery.  You may be interested to know that the author and illustrator have collaborated again:

I was dreadfully nervous, with this being my first swap and all, but now that the both of you have received and are happy it feels great!

I'm so glad you both like them - I can't wait to make more!  Smiley

Swap addiction:  so it begins.  It starts with a little bookmark swap...
