Beaded bookmark

I have so many great memories of reading.

My grandparents owned a stationery shop when I was young, and once a week used to let me and my brother go out to the back of the shop and select as many of the older issue cartoon magazines as we wanted. My favourites were the "Whizzer and Chips" comics (anyone remember those?).

My parents also owned a toy store, so many of my afternoons were spent at the little library across the road from the shopping centre. I love libraries!

Since having children, I must confess that I haven't read as many books as would like to. Definately something I am wanting to change. I often think back to when I was young and would spend a whole Saturday in bed reading!

I just love the handmade bookmarks that Lala has been creating lately (click here) ... so I decided to have a go myself.

I must admit, mine aren't as flash as hers, but it definately is nice having something special to mark the page in my book, rather than the scrap of paper that was there previously.

When I asked Symon what he thought (about the one with the cross), he said it looked a bit too gothic for him... and then also added not to make him one for Christmas. Don't you just love honest people ;)
