As many of you already know, I have been reading a lot lately.
Well, a few weeks ago, I was at Borders picking up a few more of the Laurell K. Hamilton books (The Anita Blake - Vampire Hunter Series) and while I was waiting to check out, I started looking at the bookmarks on the "spontaneous buy" racks. (Yes, I'm a sucker for those racks!) They had some really cool, beaded "book thongs" and I decided to buy one.
Once I got home, I kept looking at the bookmark and thinking to myself "I can make this!"
So, I picked up some beads, and decided to play. Here is what I've come up with so far.
The first one will most likely go to my Mother-in-Law so that she can use it in her bible.
I know! I know! It doesn't really show up that great on the white background, but you can still get an idea of what it looks like.
This next one, I will probably be keeping for myself. Blue and green are my favorite colors, so I am really liking it. And who can resist a dragonfly?
Here is how it looks inside the book.
These are perfect for the book lover in your family! They would also make GREAT teacher gifts!
Mr. Mister and I are heading out to San Antonio this weekend, and I have decided to take my supplies along. It will give me something to do when I am tuckered out after visiting the Alamo and the River Walk.
Finally! A thong that I can appreciate! LOL!
