7 Easy Bookmarks You Can Make

BlogHer Original Post

I recently went on vacation and overall we planned rather well. We didn't end up bringing many things we didn't need and we only forgot to pack a couple of minor things. Part of that planning was figuring out how many books to bring, something that BlogHer's Facebook community helped me with. It was a screen-free vacation so I only packed paper books. As I settled into a lounge chair on the first day of our vacation I realized I had made an error. I had not packed a bookmark.

Usually that's not a problem for me. I always have a receipt or business card nearby. I had absolutely nothing in my beach bag to mark my page unless I wanted to start using pesos as bookmarks (and I really didn't want to). I ended up doing something I never do -- I dog-eared my pages. I can hear your gasps. I'm kind of surprised with myself. Now that I'm home I'm looking at bookmarks I can take on my next screen-free vacation. Maybe I'll just keep a couple permanently stored in my carry-on.

I need to make these monster bookmarks. They remind me of the Yip-Yips on Sesame Street. I love the Yip-Yips.
