I absolutely love reading. Everywhere I go, I bring a book. I read during lunch and have my nose buried in a book before bed. Most of my friends who read as much as I do save their place in a book by folding over the top corner of the page. I always hated doing so, because it would always leave a permanent crease mark on the page. That is why I always carry my favorite bookmark around with me.
One of the best things about bookmarks is that you can easily craft yourself one. Bookmarks are fun, easy-to-do projects that make for practical and affordable gifts. I got my favorite bookmark as a gift years ago, and now it is one of my prized possessions. Whether for yourself or someone else, craft a colorful and handy bookmark today. Give one of these great craft projects a try today.
