Do you have these situations on your bookshelves?
My husband habitually uses blank index cards as book marks (a remnant of his student days) while I tend to grab whatever scrap paper is in reach. This results in many lost grocery lists, receipts or hastily jotted addresses turning up when I’m rifling through pages to find a quote or reference.
This scrap was particularly bugging me since this is our artful “display” bookcase in the living room.
When I was scouring a local bead shop for an unrelated project, I spotted this funny thing that looked like a miniature shepherd’s staff or an earring for a half-giant. I was baffled as to what it could be and then felt silly when I finally realized what it was. (My confusion was warranted, right? I mean, what do they look like to you?)
Anyway, though I would have happily selected enough pretty beads and findings to make a few dozen of these I forced myself to exercise some restraint and started off making just two. More will follow, especially since these would make a great gift for any reader. Or at least any reader who hasn’t abandoned books for nooks.
I’m not going to post a tutorial because…well, I don’t want to. But I will post some pictures when I make more and perhaps I’ll even give away a few.
Thanks for stopping by!
