“Where the Wild Things Are”

Monster Bookmarks for Trick or Treaters

My challenge for the week. I have just recently discovered that there are many "challenges" available throughout the internet crafting world and have begun participating in some. This week, however, I created my own challenge. The challenge was to make an item for our trick or treaters. These bookmarks are the result of that challenge. They are created from an original pen and ink drawing that my son, Dain, made into a rubber stamp. I think this is a good exchange for chocolate, don't you? I'll keep the chocolate for myself and the trick or treaters can go home and read "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak (one of my all time favorites), and use the monster bookmark to keep their places. Dain will also be selling these at a local Art Festival and Animal Adoption and Wellness Fair that is being held locally this week-end in support of Animal rescue and Welfare organizations. If you live in the Phoenix area, and are interested in this event, go here.

Wow - these are cool. Great idea. Have you kid tested yet? Am curious as to how they will react. We need to try them out on a school teacher ....
