Homemade Heart-Shaped Bookmarks

I have always adored these heart-shaped bookmarks, so last night I made a bunch.
The last time I made bookmarks was a few years ago and these hearts are nowhere near as cute. But they are impossibly easy to make – just glue the top half of small heart on a larger heart for the first. Or – you can paste the top half of a cut out of a heart on a same sized heart to get the golden one. Quick and useful. The golden one will highlight your page number or title! The other one, well, it’ll make even Marlowe seem cheerful and that’s saying something!

Do you have any DIY bookmark ideas? I could use a little something-to-do. 

A Creative Bit

After getting what can only be described as one incredibly awesomely creative gift yesterday – well, two – I went into a bit of a creative mode myself!


As a kid, I used to absolutely love making bookmarks, specially for my father. Well, these are for me. A few days ago, I came across this post on homemade bookmarks. They are so wonderful!!

Which is why, when I was cleaning my closet for the umpteenth time, and I came across these pieces of cloth just sitting there waiting to be cut up – I knew just what I wanted to do with them!!

After spending three days of my four-day-holiday doing absolutely nothing, I finally did something productive (and… entirely out of scrap!!)


Aren’t they adorable?


As for the gifts, well – my (favourite… duh!) sister gave me this left-handers’ mug that reads “I may be left handed, but I am always right”, and has a teenie hole on the right side, so, as you see, it can only be used by left handers! I am sipping coffee from it, as we speak.

And the left handers’ pair of scissors was a real help (while making these cute bookmarks) because, for once, I managed to cut something up without almost crushing half of my hand!

What a day…!
