In need of a book to read

Err.....not that I am saying that I have not been doing any reading lately, no!

I have not been reading any novels lately actually. I am too busy spending time reading my piles of letters, contract documents and what nots related to work. *grin*

I have, on my trips for work, in the plane, been reading plenty of Readers Digest, though that does not actually count as real reading, huh? *grin*

Anyway, what I am saying when I said that I am in a need to read is because I have just received....well, not really JUST RECEIVED...I received it about a month ago actually, but I just could not find the time to blog about it. Or, rather, I was not in the mood to blog, what with the crisis at work that does not seem to want to subside... *sigh*

Opps! Digressing again, am I? LOL! Anyway, I was involved in a Bookmark Exchange last month organised by Zarina at NNC. I actually received mine during the NNC Anniversary Meet in March, but we were not supposed to open it until the 23rd of April in conjunction with World Book Day. Err....did I get that facts right, Zarina?

I was so busy on the 23rd day itself that I finally only opened it the next day after almost everyone at NNC had already opened theirs! *grin* Sabariah must think that I am not excited enough to receive from her! *blush* Do know, Sabariah, that that is definitely not the case! I love receiving gifts! Who doesn’t, right? LOL! *grin*

Anyway, I received from Sabariah two lovely bookmark and a fat quarter in pink! Take a look! Lovely, right?

My partner for this exchange was Paul. I wanted to do more, but, as usual, I left things to the last minute and ended up doing the bookmark at the 11th hour, finishing it only at close to 2.00am the night before the Anniversary Meet as I wanted to pass it on to Zarina to pass it on to Paul as it is supposed to be a secret partner exchange.

I am truly sorry, Paul, for such a lousy finish to the bookmarks. If I have time, maybe I will make you another one, or maybe, to make up for it, I will make you something else. Anyway, I still hope that you will enjoy using it to mark your favourite read.

By the way, in answer to your question as to the printer I had used to print out the bookmark, it's a HP Deskjet F4280. It's really good. It's a 3-in-1 printer. It's a printer, scanner and copier all in one! I get paid for promoting the printer? LOL! *grin*

Hi Nik.

Yes I like the bookmarks. Don't worry about making me another item :)

I have to laminate that paper one first before using though. I don't want to smear the beautiful design!
