This year I got my brothers and sisters some books for xmas. I love getting books as gifts, but I worry that some people might think they are boring, so I decided to spruce up the gifts with some handmade personalized holiday bookmarks:
Some people may think it's weird or solipsistic that I feel the need to put my own face on everything. Those people are just jealous.
I even hand-wove the tassles myself. That's right, I can finger-weave, bitches. And I'm proud of it. Anyway here is a slightly bigger PDF version of my bookmark that you can download for your own amusement, but you'll have to finger-weave your own tassles.

Dude! Like that Sherlock pic of yours is just way too creepy!
Has anyone noticed that the eyes follow you around the room? No kidding - DO IT! Get up and walk back and forth side to side in front of the monitor man!

that's an AWESOME idea! i'm totally stealing it next time i give a book! i do beadwork, so i'll make beaded tassels :)

Another option is the "fuck off, I'm reading bookmark" which is perfect for your friends who read on public transportation!

I'm really relieved that you didn't do this year's trendy bookmark, the "book thong". Mainstream American is not ready for Dan-as-book-thong. Not yet, maybe not ever. Although it would have added a whole new dimension to the braiding - er, I mean "hand-weaving" inset.

The PDF doesn't have the word "Adventure" over your Indiana Jones pic. If you fix it, I'll print the bookmark and use it all the time, even though I don't know you and that's kind of weird.

Oops, all fixed now. Sorry. MERRY XMAS!!!!

ps I have no idea what a "book thong" is but I love that crafty "fuck off I'm reading" lacy thingee.

I love Dans buff bod on the romance pic.
Thanks for the book mark and the books. I love books!
"solipsistic" That's a good one.

i wish i was your friend, just so i could get one with a braided tassle!!!! :)

Yep - sadly I'm wishing I could have a custom made one with the handy tassle.
Question - the romance novel one... are you trying to kiss the girl or ingest her face?

Only a homo would come up with this sissy idea, probably one who was drunk at the time. Anything seem familiar Dan?

Redundant anonymous poster is so jealous.
