For bookness sake

04 Mar 2016

I love to read.

Ever since I was a little kid, books & magazines have been my happy place. I reckon this passion comes from my insatiable and sometimes dangerous curiosity, because I always want to know everything.

I first fell in love with reading when I didn’t even know how to read: I was 5 and still in kindergarden, but my aunt thought I would enjoy the Barbie Magazine (a huuuge hit among 80’s girls) if only because I could watch the pretty pictures of the dolls. From the first moment I had it in my hands, I LOVED IT. But, as you can imagine, I wanted more. I wanted to actually know what was going on there.

So, in the summer of 1986, I asked my aunt to teach me how to read. And it was truly like opening the door to Wonderland.

So for this week’s Freebie Friday, I wanted to share my love for reading and designed a set of four handy bookmarks for you to print. Use cardstock so they’re firmer and slip them through the pages of your favourite book. Where will it take you? Enjoy your journey!!! 😉

    Sorry but where can I find the pdf file ?

  31. manicure May 5th, 2017 11:52AM

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come
    here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your
    theme? Great work!

  32. Lizzie May 6th, 2017 9:10PM

    Hi there! I really like your bookmarks, they are so beautiful. As i was scrolling through your page, I noticed the blue and green flower design at the bottom. I absolutely love that design. Would you be able to make that design into a bookmark by any chance?

  33. Vanesa May 10th, 2017 10:55AM

    These are very beautiful

  34. Nancy May 11th, 2017 4:08AM

    May your coming year surprise you with the happiness of smiles, the feeling of love and so on. I hope you will find plenty of sweet memories to cherish forever. Best birthday.

  35. Aaliyah May 22nd, 2017 3:18AM

    How do I print this? Btw I’m on iPad and I’m new to Pinterest 😅

  36. Nandush May 27th, 2017 7:21PM

    Hi Aaliyah!!! You have to download it to your ipad and then open it on a pdf reading app, like Acrobat reader. From there maybe you could print them wirelessly if your printer is wi-fi, but if not, just send them over e-mail to print from a computer. Hope it helps =)

  37. Nandush May 27th, 2017 7:39PM

    Thank you so much Nancy!!!

  38. Nandush May 27th, 2017 7:40PM
