The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

More BookMarks, Some for the Boys this time

Hello Everyone
Its great to get back on and post a couple more pictures of the bookmarks I made for the students I am working with this year.  Here are a couple that I fashioned with some of the boys I had in mind.  I have to say that some of the boys were very surprised and excited to recieve these bookmarks and some have come to me to express their joy and let me know that they are using them at home during their reading time.  Of course it warms my heart that this gift is so appreciated by 8 and 9 year olds.
I used the cricut machine quite a bit on some of these bookmarks.  I used some spellbinders dies too on quite a few of them as well.  I fashioned a tractor from Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge for the John Deere bookmarks.  I used Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut cartridge for the Cowboy hats on the cowboy themed bookmarks.  I have of course, reams of stickers for all themes that I have stashed away, especially themes that relate to children and children's activities.  I used up a fraction of what I have so making these large assembly type projects are no problem for me, they just take time.  Anyways, I had fun...
