Corner Bookmarks from Satin Stitchery - Recent Handmade Purchase

If you're a regular follower of this blog, you know that I buy handmade gifts anytime I possibly can. Here's the skinny on a recent purchase...

Mother's Day is almost here and I bought the cutest corner bookmarks for my mom from Satin Stitchery on ArtFire. See, my mom loves chickens. No she didn't grow up on a farm and neither did our family, but she has a passion for 'country living.' We did have two little chicks in our house when my sister and I were little; they were the result of a science project at school. My sister and I named them 'Beeper' and 'Peeper.' They lived in our downstairs bedroom in a box until they were too big to live with us and went to a farm. My sister and I couldn't eat chicken for months!

These things are adorable!! Toni did them for me as a special order (because I needed chickens) and I can't wait for my mom to get them. They're bigger than they look and so, so cute!

Next item... tomorrow! Stay tuned!



  1. Beeper and Peeper - how cute! Thanks for the shout out, Lori. I think the chickens turned out well and I hope your mom likes them. Yesterday I learned I've been accepted as a craft vendor at my local farmers market. I'm going to take a couple of chicken bookmarks - I think they will be a hit!

  2. Toni,
    That's fabulous! I hope they sell like crazy!

  3. They are sooo cute. I'm sure your mom will like them.
