Sticking Together/Sticking it Out

The dude reads a lot. A lot a lot, like last year, for instance he read (according to his goodreads) 13859 pages. He's over 3K already this year. He needs a lot of book marks because he just plain wears them out! He likes a certain kind best, though he's a wonderful husband and he uses all the ones I made him for Christmas three years ago. But you just can't have too many when you read 13859 pages a year.


I often use "You are here" when I make bookmarks. This is my idea of a joke. Of a sort. This explains why I am not a stand up comic.

I love this letter set. I use it all the time, and I especially like to snug the letters right up together and cut them out.

When I saw the directions for these magnetic bookmarks here I had to make one. Yes, that's a magnet! He loves those magnet clips that come in all sorts of shapes--planets, coffee cups, monkeys--but they wear out so quickly and they cost so dang much. I'm glad I know how to make them now. Though I will say this one is HUGE compared to the ones he usually uses. I'm sure I can figure out a way to scale these down.

Great Bookmarks - whatever it means I appear to share your sense of humor!

Very masculine yet pretty bookmark! I laugh - I've used the same freebie bookmark I got from Amazon year ago. Mind you I've laminated it several times and it's worn but the same one.

Bookish magnetism has to be a good thing. Judging from your posts, I'm pretty certain you and the dude are perfect for each other.

Great bookmark! I like the quirky humor too and the bookmark is cool and fun while being manly too. I'm sure that's important to the Dude. :)

Nicely done - humor and all! I like that it's masculine and functional. A variety for different sized books would be a nice gift touch.
