As promised, and with at least an hour to spare, I give you holiday bookmarks. I'm giving these to my students and my kids' classmates this year. I'd stick them in the girls' stockings too, but then they would know that I'm Santa Claus. Thanks to Peanut Head, the girls still very much believe in the Fat Man.
What do you think of these little Santa stamps? I love Santa.
I have a thing for snow people too.
And you know me, I'd never turn down a cookie.
Now that you've seen all the designs, below are the jpgs. for the bookmarks. Don't forget to click on each of them to get the best resolution before you save them to your desktop. Otherwise, they might be blurry and that would probably make you mad.
If you need a refresher on how to turn out the finished product, go here.
When I posted the birthday bookmarks, someone asked me why the heck a bookmark needed a magnet, and I couldn't respond to the question because there was no e-mail attached to the commenter's profile. I hate that. People ask me questions all the time, and I can't respond for that reason, or because a commenter's blog is set to private, or worse yet, it's an anonymous comment and I don't even know who it is. How am I supposed to respond to that?
I really didn't come here to whine tonight. Sorry about that. Anyway, to answer the burning question, the bookmark doesn't need the magnets, they're just nice to have. Think about it.
You're having a hard time? Okay, I'll illustrate.
Peanut Head picks up my book with an average, everyday, garden variety bookmark in it, he yells "Go long, Clyde!" and he launches it across the room to the fictitious dog.
Now I ask you, is your average, everyday, garden variety bookmark going to stay put?
No. It is not. It's going to jump ship the first chance it gets and then you will never be able to finish your book. Do you really want that?
I think not.
With the magnetic bookmark, the magnets cling to your page and they don't let go until you pull them apart. It's every magnet's dream. No lie.
I hope that clears things up. Enjoy the bookmarks!
