bookmark giveaway!

My daughter picked a name this morning. The winner of the zebra bookmark is Cath of Read Warbler. Send me your postal address, Cath, and I'll mail you a zebra!

I've been thinking about this, and decided that until future notice, my giveaways are going to be of just bookmarks. Several reasons. Economical: I can afford to mail bookmarks more often than I can mail books. Every week! I can also send them overseas, so my giveaways won't be limited geographically anymore. Creative: I'm making the bookmarks myself, (some from my own artwork, more from my scrap file) which I really enjoy doing (especially since I'm not painting anymore). The only funny thing is, I don't use bookmarks myself. (But I love making them!) And I wonder how many other people do, since I don't get as many entries for these giveaways. Is there just more interest in free books than free bookmarks? I could go back to doing book giveaways, but they'd be far less frequent, perhaps just one a month... any kind of input appreciated, here. Let me know! You're the recipients!

Well, for now, the next giveaway features this handpainted, ribbon-edged giraffe bookmark. Do you like giraffes? Leave a comment for a chance to win, by tuesday July 7th. Happy reading!

I LOVE and collect bookmarks. Especially unique ones like this. I would love to be entered in this.

PS: I definitely think you should continue bookmark giveaways. They are charming!

Thrilled to have won the Zebra bookmark - thank you. I use them all the time and have a nice collection. I don't enter book giveaways all that much, not sure why - my *huge* tbr pile I think. Whereas there's always room for a new bookmark. :-)

(Don't enter me in this draw as I just won one and someone else should have a chance.)

It's funny, because I didn't start using bookmarks again until this year. I've got your pink zebra one in my book right now, but I've been rotating between some other bookmarks. LOVE bookmarks.

So...please enter me. :) I do like giraffes, and I love your artwork.

We love books and bookmarks too. I'm excited to read all your reviews/ratings. Most of your 5/5 books I don't recognize, but when I saw that you have The Bone People and Animal, Vegetable, Mineral I knew I have to try some of your other recommendations.
Thanks!
