Good evening everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe, washing your hands, and haven’t gone too insane during isolation just yet! Today I have a slightly different post for you and please be aware todays post is infact an #AD I have been kindly gifted.
Now I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am struggling to find things to do. Theres only so much animal crossing one girl can play, and I luckily don’t live in a big place so cleaning every day isn’t necessary. In these dark times when puzzles are sold out, toilet paper is more expensive then gold and the slight cough gives people a panic attack, reading brings calm and peace back to many.
I have a few books but also tend to fold the pages down, but now I have a beautiful hand made bookmark, kindly gifted by Keiraillustrations. LOOK AT IT.
These bookmarks are made with watercolour paint, and Keira has hand designed every single one giving each bookmark that personal touch. They are absolutely stunning and its a nice little encouragement to read more. You can find this bookmark design, along with many others on Keiras Etsy page which can be found here and at the bottom of this post. They are SUPER cheap and make for a nice little treat for yourself or a gift for an avid bookworm.
I had a little chat with Keira just to get some background on how she started making these bookmarks:
“I decided to start making the bookmarks because I love reading so much and wanted to do something different with my free time. I buy a lot of bookmarks myself so thought why not just make them!? I’m good at painting, especially watercolour as it’s my favourite paint to use and I enjoy it so much so I thought it was the perfect idea! I also know a lot of people that read as well so I thought it would be cute as a little gift, it’s personal so I liked the idea of putting a smile on someone’s face. As a kid I was always making things, painting, colouring and drawing! It will always be one of my favourite things to do.
I’ve been overwhelmed with the amazing responses about my bookmarks. I’ve had so much positivity and encouragement with them and I can’t wait to keep designing more.
If you are interested, be sure to check out the below links for all of Keiras social media, and Etsy shop. I think these bookmarks are a elegant design, and seeing as we all have nothing else to do, grab a book, get comfy and sit back. Huge thanks to Keira for sending me a bookmark they are adorable and I can’t wait to use it. Stay safe everyone and for this blog post that is Sophiemags over and out,
Lots of love xxx
