Angela Sunshine (AngelaSunshine) Sign up here if you want to participate in our bookmark swap. This swap is a "free for all" round, meaning you can use any YA book you choose.

(Sign ups are posting early because I will be out of town this Friday)

Sign ups will end on August 1st.
Bookmarks will ship on August 15th.
Bookmarks will be opened on August 30th.

These are the rules:

1. You make or buy a bookmark themed around your choice of a YA book (but handmade is way cool!)
2. You are responsible for shipping your bookmark to your swap person at your own expense NO LATER THAN MONDAY, AUGUST 15TH! Be prepared to possibly send it out of the country.
3. Have fun and be creative!!! How you represent your book on your bookmark is totally and completely up to you.
4. Open your new bookmark as a group on TUESDAY, AUGUST 30TH!
5. Take a picture of the bookmark you receive to share with the group!

The goal is pretty much to just share a book you like in an unique way. Feel free to message me your address in the meantime, I will hang onto it and confirm your spot in the swap here.

Becky (Beckyofthe19and9) Mine is done... but I realized that I don't have an envelope that will fit, so I'll have to run to the store when I get out of work to get a little mailer. It will definitely be in the mailbox today though!

Becky (Beckyofthe19and9) Errr... Mine will actually have to go out in the morning. I put it in the mailer, and then was on the way to the mailbox, when I realized that I have no postage on it... and the Post office is now closed. And I don't have enough stamps. Shoot. =\

Sorry... I am a dummy. In the morning though, Scout's Honor! :D

message 40: by Paula (new)

Paula (pauldajo) | 322 comments Thanks Becky for the bookmark. I like A Little Princess also. I'll try to post a picture of it when I get home from work. I really like the metal bookmarks. They fit nicely on the page of a book.


message 41: by Amy (new)

Amy | 1947 comments thanks Cristen! I love my bookmark. I'll hopefully take some pics tonight and email them to Angela to post for me!


message 42: by Cristen (last edited Aug 20, 2011 02:52PM) (new)

Cristen | 135 comments Glad you like it Amy!

Thanks for The Knife of Never Letting Go bookmark Cassie! I loved that book! I'm trying to find my camera's battery charger so I can take pics.


message 43: by Paula (new)

Paula (pauldajo) | 322 comments [ Photobucket]

This is the front of Beck's bookmark.

This is the back of Becky's bookmark. My camera didn't catch the image well. Becky also sent me two bookmark clips.


message 45: by Becky (new)

Becky (Beckyofthe19and9) Here's the bookmark that Donna sent to me:

With the note she sent:
P8210503

In the book I'm reading:
P8210504

I love it, it's so cute! I love that the legs can each mark a different page - that's handy for short stories like that. And, I dunno if you all noticed (it's real subtle), but in the background is the quilt my grandmother made for me which has horses on it too. ♥


message 46: by Cassie (new)

Cassie Those are so fun! The horse is very sweet :) Glad you liked it! I had just finished that book and had to create one for it ~ I enjoyed the book too! Have you read any others in the series?

I just saw this today and now want to be home so badly to open my bookmark!! Will happen as soon as I get home!


message 47: by Becky (new)

Becky (Beckyofthe19and9) I read all of the Little House books when I was a kid, but I don't really remember them so I have plans to re-read them at some point. I'll probably squeeze in the first one soonish! :)


message 48: by Cassie (new)

Cassie Crap! Just realized that I jumbled all of my statements together - brain warp-speed will do that...sorry for any confusion! (Donna sent the cool horse bookmark, for any who wondering)

Anyway, Cristen I meant this in regards the bookmark I made: Glad you liked it! I had just finished that book and had to create one for it ~ I enjoyed the book too! Have you read any others in the series?

Becky: That's cool. I've actually never read any of the Little House books!


message 49: by Becky (new)

Becky (Beckyofthe19and9) Oh. Whoops... LOL!`


message 50: by Cristen (new)

Cristen | 135 comments @ Cassie message 48: I just finished the first one about a week ago, so your timing was perfect. I checked The Ask and the Answer out from the library and I'll probably start it this week.
