Tomorrow is a statutory holiday here in Canada for CANADA DAY (not sure where you live, you might BE in Canada too, LOL,) so it will be a couple of days before the mail is moving decently again.
Thanks to everyone for playing along with the RAK game! You gave me SEVERAL new ideas!

Here are my answers:
I use them as little "gifties" inside cards.
I use a bookmark for 'the usual;" to mark a spot in a novel/book I am currently reading.
I am sure you ALL have other ideas about handmade bookmarks!! Please share them in the "Comments" section and I will add them here at CY. Your name will then be added to a little CY-RAK. I'll draw for that next Monday evening! Each idea you share in the Comments section nets you a ballot in the draw Monday evening June 29th 2009!
