05-12-2008, 04:55 AM
I would love to join.

my grandma would always get mad if i folded down the corner of a pg to mark my spot, so i grew obsessed with bookmarks. usually i use extra photos from my scrapbooking, but in college i ended up using dollar bills. then if i needed a snack i didn't have to go searching for my wallet. hehehe

Yep, jonquil, the mousie one is from "The Tailor of Gloucester" by Beatrix Potter (glad you like it!), the middle is Madeline, and the bunnies are from "Guess How Much I Love You" by Sam McBratney. I guess if anyone isn't as into kid lit as I am and gets one of my bookmarks, could always give it to a child or teacher in their life!

07-11-2008, 08:42 PM
I went to the Beatrix Potter shop in Gloucester about 10 years ago - it was off a narrow little alley - very Victorian

07-13-2008, 11:27 PM
got ElectaBlue's bookmarks at our local ATC meetup today - they are so very cool - thanks for the extra one :)

jonquil - those are so lovely - so nicely done!

07-31-2008, 04:44 AM
Now I am a bit worried. Deadline past and looks like there is no sign of my bookmarks?

07-31-2008, 06:26 AM
hubby had me running all day yesterday - they got here yesterday. Beautiful bookmarks. so no worries :)

I'll be swapping these out this weekend - so still time for the last couple to show up.

07-31-2008, 06:48 AM
Can't wait to get the returns! :D

08-02-2008, 11:16 AM
waiting on the mail today and starting to scan for the swap gallery. hoping the last two show up today - still plan on trading out sunday - keep your fingers crossed :)

08-02-2008, 11:55 AM
I can't believe they're not there yet! I sent them 10 days ago, and they said it would only take 4 - 6 days. Liars, liars, pants on fire!! I sent a personal trade card to ENGLAND just this past Tuesday, and I've already had notification that she's received it! What's with that?!

*crossing fingers tightly* Hope they arrive in time. :unsure:

So sorry for any trouble this has caused, Goatgoddess. :(

08-02-2008, 04:48 PM
no worries Siena - sometimes Cananda - USA mail takes longer than other counties for some reason I've never figured out - I have enough extras we will get a trade done. Still waiting on rocketwoman's bookmarks too.

Lorirn - your beautiful bookmarks are here :)

Heck now that I'm looking at dates Lori's took the long way around to get here - I'll bet they get here monday Siena and rocketwoman - I'll let you know the minute they show up :)

08-05-2008, 10:06 AM
bookmarks are in the mail heading to their new homes - took them by the postoffice after work yesterday. :)

worried about Siena and rocketwoman's bookmarks - no sign of them yet. fingers crossed they show up this week so I can trade them out and get them back out. :unsure:

08-05-2008, 03:31 PM
Woot! Can't wait to see the returns. Thanks GG!!!!

08-06-2008, 10:21 AM
I received my bookmarks yesterday and love every one of them. Unfortunately, I left them at home and I don't remember who they are from right now.:sad: I will post reps when I have them in front of me.

Thanks for hosting, Debra!

08-07-2008, 03:44 AM
It's great that the returns are on their way now. :D

08-07-2008, 11:14 PM
