I've yet to make yours Debbie. I'll get it mailed by the mail date. I'm kind of a fly by the seat of my pants person with too much on my plate always lol. I'm looking forward to seeing what I come up with. I love reading and bookmarkers. I buy them for my granddaughter everytime we buy a book. She's ll, now I'll have to show her how to make them. She'll love it! Fun!!!

Oh no problem Christy. I was trying to get all my ducks in a row by the end of this week. I have to concentrate on graduation for the next two months. I have a lot of scrapbooking and such to do for my youngest sons graduation. Then my nest will be empty and I will have more time on my hands. I have been a stay at home homeschooling Mom for years so this will be quiet an adjustment for me! Thankfully I have a 10 month old Grandson who lives around the corner from me that I get to see often!

I already have my bookmarks in various stages of completion for the next several months so I will still be doing this swap!

Debbie, it appears that there is a blue button floating around a post office somewhere. I am sure another blue button will find its way to your house soon. :)
