I am always looking for interesting and cool bookmarks. Since I always lose them or my cat attacks the ones with tassels, I am constantly in need of new ones. So I figured a bookmark swap would be cool. And it would be easy for international players to join in this one. SO Send two bookmarks, either purchased or ones you make, to your partner. Retail $5

I'm ready to get started on these. I'm thinking of maybe hard cardstock base for mine with maybe a fabric design. Just an idea. I like to have fun with my bookmarks.

I'm definitely thinking about joining this swap, but, just to be safe, I'm going to make the bookmarks before I join. Don't want to accidentally flake because of lack of time or anything, right? >.<

owlsong 08/ 7/2006 #

All done. Count me in. ^_^

PinkLotus 08/ 7/2006 #

this is going to be awesome, I am DEFINATELY making mine..

PinkLotus 08/ 7/2006 #

is there any size requirements?

owlsong 08/ 8/2006 #

Alright, question. I've made both of mine, so obviously they wouldn't retail for five dollars. Is this acceptable?

I mean, they're not garbage--I would genuinely like to receive bookmarks similar to these, but I figured I'd ask the participants (one of whom will obviously become my partner)

Would you be bummed/angry/frustrated/irritated if both of the bookmarks you received were handmade, and not storebought?

PinkLotus 08/ 8/2006 #

I would love it! I prefer handmade because they are unique ... I am making mine also... i too was wondering how that retail price would work out if one was making theirs.

user1938 08/ 8/2006 #

I prefer handmade myself. And both mine with be handmade as well.

user2613 08/10/2006 #

handmade all the way!

user2102 08/10/2006 #

I found some interesting ones today...will try to make a couple also...have to find my artistic supplies since moving

user1787 08/11/2006 #

Handmade is fine by me! The last exchange I received all handmade ones and the needlework one I've been using constantly since I've received it. I haven't used the others yet because I'm really just reading one book at time currently.

Farruska 08/16/2006 #

on the 17th as soon as I know who my partner is I'll be sending a handmade (not by me, no time) and something else ;)


owlsong 08/16/2006 #

I am positively DYING waiting for the partners to be handed out. My envelope is all ready to be sent out, sitting on my desk begging to be mailed.

It's kinda freaking me out. Are envelopes supposed to talk?

user1938 08/17/2006 #

Sure! My envelopes talk all the time. Right now mine is saying 'when are you gonna get your butt in gear and fill me?!' ha I need to work on mine this week...

Farruska 08/17/2006 #

ok, one handmade by me and one handmade not by me waiting to be sent ;)

PinkLotus 08/17/2006 #

mine are ready too.. have been for a few days now.. I had a lot of ideas that worked out really well.. as soon as I get my partners mine will be in the mail

user1938 08/18/2006 #

Okay, I made mine last night and had fun doing it! I hope my recipient enjoys them. They're mailing today. For a sneak peek: http://www.collagecontessa.blogspot.com/

Farruska 08/27/2006 #

My partner is Robyn in Australia and I have my package ready to send but I'm sick in bed now. hope I manage to go to the postoffice before the 30 , if not I'll let you know.

Farruska 09/ 1/2006 #

Hi, I'm leaving the same message in different swaps I'm in: "As I moved to a new house I didn't have internet for a while (too long I must say) and just after... we had a terrible storm last sunday and ran out internet connection :o( sooooo, today was a surprise since I wasn't expecting it until next week!!! I have to ask my swap partner to excuse me but I really didn't know how to sent my communication to confirm that I sent my items! Please Michele if you read this (I'm also sending an e-mail if this thing stays on long enough) I just want to let you know that I already sent you my package. Sorry again.

AngelFaeryKathleen 09/ 5/2006 #

KarlaKC 09/ 8/2006 #

I just uploaded a photo of the bookmarks Shel sent to me! I love the bookmarks others are receiving according to their photos. C'mon and leave a photo if you can! I love seeing new ideas for future ones!

user1938 09/12/2006 #

Haven't received my bookmarks yet and haven't heard from my person if they have received mine yet either... HOping they arrived safely... sigh

wiccked 09/12/2006 #

Me either, ContessaKris. I posted mine ages ago, so I was really hoping they'd be there by now.

Farruska 09/12/2006 #

received yesterday! :)

Liz sent me 3 beautiful bookmarks: , a cute kitty magnetic bookmark where Liz wrote a small note :), a gorgeous asian-style with an antique style bead-coin alike with a very important message: PEACE and a very original interlocking magnetic bookmark also with a a message that is so right for me to read today: "HOPE springs exulting on triumphant wing." Thank you very much for the bookmarks and the messages! I will upload shortly a picture of my newest bookmark adition :)

wiccked 09/14/2006 #

Karla sent me three bookmarks, that I received yesterday!

Thanks Karla! One has roses, and is crocheted all around the edges, one is about Texas, and one has a cute cat marionette on it!

I'll try and take photos and upload :)

user2768 09/16/2006 #

I'm STILL waiting to receive my bookmarks :( and also to hear how my other partner liked hers...sure would like to get some feedback; this was one of my first swaps.

PinkLotus 09/18/2006 #

for anyone waiting on a return from sheiscrafty - her rating is now like 2.3 due to failure to send items so you may check with the coordinator to see what to do as you may not receive your items from her..

wiccked 09/19/2006 #

oops. I just uploaded a photo of the bookmarks I got from Karla, but I'm used to sites resizing so I didn't. It's huge. Sorry :D
