Book Lovin'

Aside  from coloring and crafting, reading is right up there on my list of things that I absolutely LOVE to do.  And I'm one of those readers that absolutely refuses to buy a Nook or Kindle for many reasons; one of them being that I love bookmarks as much as a good novel!

I picked up a new book yesterday called The Paris Wife and am lovin' it!!  Click here if you wanna check it out for yourself!

Unfortunately the time came yesterday when I had to stop reading (boo!), and of course, what do I do??  Tear off some paper and stick it in my place.  Totally unacceptable!  LOL, so this morning, I made myself a new bookmark!  Why buy a bookmark when you can easily make one??

The current challenge over at Magnolia-licious is to NOT use any designer/pattern paper.  So, I took a piece of shimmer cardstock from DCWV, rounded the corners, and stamped off a wood-mounted, Recollections, music-note stamp in Rich Cocoa by Memento.  I then distressed the bookmark in Vintage Photo by Tim Holtz.  I cut a doily in half and distressed that as well.  On top of the doily, I glued down a white feather and then pop dotted this little cutie on top.  To finish off the bookmark, I added a self-adhesive rhinestone swirl, and some pink silk ribbon from my stash!

Now I have something pretty to enjoy besides my new book :)
