A big thank you to all of the book-loving Cat Ladies who submitted feedback regarding the ideal length for a ribbon bookmark.
Each name was thrown into a hat and 6 were chosen at random; the winners will each receive a prototype bookmark. The winners are: Mary S., Sheila K., Dawn H., Tammy T. , Linda G., and Tanya G. Congratulations!
[Note: If you have wee ones about, be sure to visit Cat Lady Tanya's blog High On Craft and her Etsy Shop to enjoy her adorable art and designs for the kiddos. This entire month she is featuring "Boredom Buster" craft project how-tos for kids out on spring break.]
And as a result of your valued input into my market research, I have chosen to use an 11-inch ribbon on each of my new bookmarks--long enough for most hard-bound books, but not an overwhelming length for paperbacks. The first three designs are hot off the sewing machine and available in my Etsy shop (click on image to be whisked away):
Thanks for participating!
I also have lots of gift ideas for book lovers in my Cafepress shop including book bags, mugs, and t-shirts, featuring the cat lady designs you see here. Perfect for your favorite Librarian, Teacher, or Book Club Buddy--they are available at this link (0r click on any picture):
