Bookmarks for Book Club!

DIY book mark

The book club I'm in meets every Tuesday evening. There are currently about 8 members and we cycle through so that each member has the opportunity to lead a book of their choice (once everyone has had a chance, we start the cycle over again) I am currently leading: Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy. We've just started the book but I think it's going to be a good one. If you'd like to purchase it, click on the link below.

It's a pretty lengthy book and will end up taking most of the fall. Because of this, I thought it would be nice to make bookmarks for all the ladies that were "fall-inspired". I purchased two sheets of card-stock and cut out my desired lengths. Then I punched a hole in the top and ran some corresponding ribbon through the hole. I glued the orange card-stock on using a glue-stick. After writing on each bookmark I painted over each one using Mod Podge, this made is extra sturdy.

I was planning on giving the bookmarks to the girls last night but we cancelled at the last minute due to a torrential downpour in our area...I guess they'll have to wait until next Tuesday!

Also, here are a few photos of our area...and why we couldn't have book club! This is the second time we've had flooding like this in the last three days...

HAMPTON - A Report It viewer sent this photo of flooding at Adwood Court between Whealton and Orcutt Streets in Hampton.

HAMPTON - Many cars like this one were stuck in flood waters Tuesday evening.

    I so wish there was a way to get a few of those inches of rain here, we'd be happy to help out!
