... and they are so pretty.
I know many of you enjoy the "adult coloring" books available. Someone posted these "coloring bookmarks" on facebook recently and they are downloadable and free. Print some on cardstock and enjoy!
Since lending someone (not me - I always return them AND in the same condition I received it) a book is often a brave act, I often like to include a bookmark when I return it, as a thank you. I think something including a coloring bookmark would be a nice touch.
They would also make a nice little project for little ones (the difficulty level not being too high) and when they are done ... laminate them to make them more permanent. Just thought I'd share.

I'm not much for coloring books or coloring anything (in fact, I should probably be getting some reading done), but I'm going to admit, I had fun with this.
And yes, I made copies of those bookmarks first so I could do a few "practice" runs before working on the actual bookmarks. Yes, I do strange shit like that.
Anyway, my shoulders are a little achy from crouching over my desk, but it was fun. And because I used permanent marker (of the many colored variety, as you can see in the above photo), they leaked through. The backside looks pretty neat as well.
I think I'm going to laminate them and make them into bookmarks, too. You can never have too many bookmarks, right? :D
Because I have no self-control.
And while I was spending money anyway...
There seems to be this new fad with what people are calling "Adult Coloring Books"... which, when I first heard the term, made me raise my brows a little bit since those words kind of suggest something a little... kinkier? But then my friend was showing me a section of artsy coloring books and calling them Adult Coloring Books and I was like: "Oh..."
So while we were at the bookstore today, my other best friend mentioned them and I took a glance. I've never been big on coloring books myself, even when I was younger, but since I usually end up throwing money away for random bookmarks, I figured it would be fun to buy a set of bookmarks and give it a go.
And then, while I was at it: A little something for one of my best friends who is in love with The Nightmare Before Christmas.
