I’ll let you in on a little secret. I LOVE books. I love a fabulous story with a twisting, turning plot that keeps me from doing the dishes or laundry or going to bed at a decent hour because I just can’t put it down. But even if I can display some sort of self-control (i.e. the kids need dinner) there’s another reason why I don’t want to put it down: I don’t own a proper bookmark. Torn open envelope from my last bank statement? Used it. Business card from the pest control guy? Yep. Piece of (unused) toilet paper? Guilty. Shamefully guilty.

I decided that I needed a proper bookmark. I saw a few designs floating around the internet, so I decided to create my own. And yes, my fellow tear-a-piece-of-paper-from-your-child’s-old-school-newsletter-and-use-it-as-a-bookmark-ers, I will share these printable bookmarks with you.
