In this day and age of the e-reader, there is still something magical about snuggling up in a comfy chair with a physical book. Maybe it’s my love of paper, but there is just something so comforting about turning the pages of a book as the story unfolds. A few years ago I followed the trend and purchased an e-reader for myself as a birthday present, but honestly the novelty wore off quickly and I found myself back at our local library looking through the shelves for actual books instead of e-books. Plus if you use an e-reader you miss out on making and using fun bookmarks! These 25 DIY bookmark ideas are so cute you will want to share. A bookstore gift card and a couple of handmade bookmarks make the perfect gift for the reader on your list.
Kitties-Curling up with a good book and a warm kitty go together like PB&J.
Page Turners-Corner the market on fun with these clever corner bookmarks.
Book Worms (and other well read critters)-Let one of the well read animals save your place the next time you set down your book.
Simple Stories-If you have 10 minutes you have time to make a bookmark…or two.

I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
