Bookmarks and Cocoa

bookmarks-and-cocoaI have a little obsession with washi tape lately. But I’m putting it to good use, I swear. I’ve been decorating bookmarks and large cardboard gift tags (in order to make cuter bookmarks), and we’re going to be giving them away once a month on starting in January. It’s very relaxing to wrap tape around things and then plaster them with stickers. You’d think it wouldn’t be–what with the mess and all–but this mess is easier to clean up than all of the glue from quilling or yarn strands from knitting or crocheting.

So keep an eye out for that.

Today, I also discovered something very important. While 3 bags of cocoa mix is preferred, and encouraged, in my travel mugs, it is neither preferred nor will it be encouraged in the future, for my 12 oz mugs.

Needless to say, I’ve learned my lesson.

Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessicaโ€™s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
