I love to make beaded bookmarks (and hair sticks, but the former is more relevant here)! Below are photos of a few of my favorites, including the ones with the gorgeous glittering oval Swarovski crystals; the photos link directly to the items in my Bonanza booth. They make excellent holiday gifts for your favorite readers!

Edit #1, on 4/23: Today’s the last day to vote in the Goodreads contest, so please do!
Edit #2, also on 4/23: I put up a “SummerSellout” coupon in the ErrantDreams booth (which includes all those sparkly bookmarks depicted below). It is for 50% off everything in the booth. Seriously. I need to free up some space. Buy me out of sparkly bookmarks and hairsticks and jewelry. Make sure to click on “coupon available” and “apply coupon” before putting an item in your cart, although I think there’s also a spot in the checkout process to apply the actual coupon code (”SummerSellout” without the quotation marks).
First, a reminder that the Goodreads book blog contest is coming up!
And along with the reminder, I wanted to point you at some sparkly bookmarks I made, for those of us who still occasionally enjoy non-electronic books. I have several that end in absolutely gorgeous, sparkling Swarovski crystal oval elements in several colors. I have a bunch that end in dangling skeins of “crystal yarn”—yarn that has tiny Swarovski crystals sewn into it. I also have a handful that end in dangles of porcelain and semiprecious beads.
Hi folks! I’ve got a book review upcoming and more after that, but in the meantime, I wanted to tell you about a couple of cool gifts to consider for your favorite readers. I make beaded, hand-made bookmarks and sell them at errantdreams.etsy.com. All of the ones I posted before November have been marked down in price by 20-30%. Also, from now through Dec. 31, if you live in the USA and order a least $20 in products, you’ll get free shipping. Just place your order and wait to pay until I send you a revised invoice.
I also make & sell jewelry of various kinds there. Here’s a sampling of items:
Give one of these lovely gifts to a friend or loved one this year, and you’ll be giving them something unusual and special!
Hey there. I just got a press release from MetroKitchen. They’re celebrating their 10-year anniversary with a bunch of exclusive items and a pretty cool sweepstakes. It looks like the sweepstakes itself will start on November 15th.

Also, just a reminder that all of our first round of hand-made beaded bookmarks are on sale (all have been marked down 20-30%) at our Etsy store (errantdreams.etsy.com). They make great holiday gifts for your favorite readers, and they come packaged in little jewelry gift boxes!
Since I’m now definitely receiving more review books than I can review all of, instead of telling you which books I’ve gotten in total, I’ll just let you know which are in the immediate upcoming queue to be reviewed. This week I plan to review Turback’s coffee drink cookbook, as well as a backyard cooking cookbook from Chronicle. I have some kitchenware to review from Cuisipro: measuring spoons, a pastry blender, and cookie cutters. And finally, next on my novel list is Lora Leigh’s Mercury’s War.
You might have noticed that a few weeks ago we opened a shop on etsy [errantdreams.etsy.com] for some of our handmade goods (jewelry, bookmarks, trinket bags, ornaments). Well, I just received a new shipment of bookmark-making supplies after using up all of my old stash, so in celebration I’ve marked down ALL of the old bookmarks by 20-30%. They make great stocking stuffers, and they’re wonderful for treating yourself with too, so grab ‘em while they’re cheap! You’ll find all 11 bookmarks in the widget below, or you can click on this link [link] to visit the bookmark collection:
Hi, all! In case you don’t read my personal blog, I’ve been short on reviews in the last week or so largely because I’ve been working furiously to get our online crafts store up-and-running. I love doing beading projects, and now we’re selling them. Take a look—not only do we have jewelry as well as trinket bags, but I have the first couple of beaded bookmarks up! I have a bunch more items to photograph and put up over time, so keep coming back! Here’s a little widget to show you a few of the items:
