Busy Hands

I need to keep my hands busy, otherwise, I get bored and when I get bored...I eat.

Now, you would think that with two kids, I don't have much time to get bored.  And that's true during the hours they are awake.  However, my kids go to bed about 7 and I don't go until about 11, so there is a good 4 hours to kill in there.  I don't watch tons of tv, I mean, it's always on, but there are not too many shows that I MUST watch.

For those nights when I am just killing time, I need some simple crafts.  I did A LOT of crafting this fall, getting ready for the craft sale mom and I participated in.  We plan to do a few more next year, but I am just not ready to get back on the Christmas craft bandwagon yet.

While pa-rousing Pinterest one day, I found this link for page corner bookmarks.

I made a few up for small Christmas gifts and then thought...hey, perhaps the library would be interested in some to sell.  So, I touched base with our librarian and she said yes.  Now, of course I don't expect them to make millions.....I mean, if they made enough to buy one book, that would be great.  But for me, it's just using paper scraps I already have, so it's not like it cost me anything but my time to make them.  I figured they could try and sell them for about fifty cents a piece or 3 for $ 1.00.

I think they turned out pretty good...what do you think?  What would you pay for one?
