Little Messy Missy’s Bookmarks!


I received my package in the mail today from Little Messy Missy’s bookmark swap.  I was so excited to open it and see what great creations were inside.





I LOVE them! 



this one comes to me from Maree Gordon in Australia!  I think that’s the furthest away I have ever received anything from.   I love the stitching she did between the butterflies, and the French text.



The second one comes to me from Ruth.  The picture just doesn’t show off all the details.  The flowers and butterfly are embossed with a beautiful glaze.  Pretty lace and ribbon, and a charm which I adore.

Missy also included a couple extra ladies!  I just can’t say enough how much I love them all!

Thanks so much for an awesome swap!

The Toy Society is a craft/street art project spreading love throughout the streets of the world.   If you’d like to know more, you can visit them here.  Or you if you just want to browse the photo gallery of all the great toys that have been “dropped” check out their flickr gallery here.

Thanks again to Little Messy Missy for turning me on to this fun project!

I opted to make 2 different styles of bookmarks for the swap I recently participated in.  The first one is probably my favorite, but that may be because of my love for the tin flower embelishment I used on the tip.  It fits nicely over the corner of your page.




For the second, I was going for a somewhat earthy feel.  I used fiber paper as well as fiber strings as some of the components.  I thought the rub-ons directly on the fiber papers gave a nice effect.




And here they are together:













I look at these and I see two different personalities, if bookmarks can have personalities.  They were very fun to make.  In fact, I think I will make some more!

Book Mark Swap

Today I finished up my bookmarks for a bookmark swap hosted by my friend Missy at Little Messy Missy.  I even remembered to mail them!

I don’t want to spoil the fun when she gets the package, so no full pictures for a couple of days, but here are some teaser sneak-peeks of the 2 book marks.

I’ve observed many, many swaps, but never had the nerve to actually participate in one, so this is my first, and I’m excited!
