Mixed Media Bookmarkers

I love to read and have been known to have several book going at the same time.  My problem is, I don’t like to dog ear a page and I don’t like buying bookmarkers for 2 plus bucks.  Today, I decided to make my own book markers and whatever extras I have, I will give…

Colorful Comeback Page!
