  1. Oh, wow. Oh, wow, oh, wow, oh, wow.
    I am, by the time any book thingy comes up, a total wreck, and too much of a perfectionist to think of giving anything handmade away. And yet, I know that I would LOVE to have one of these, and would just – holy cow! – have a fit if you gave me one! I made little 40’s era stickers and postcards to take to ALA, and didn’t make NEARLY enough. I nervously gave them away, too, and people snatched them. And so: yes. Handmade. Yes: personal. Yes: readers love them, and will remember you and your work. These are really, really neat.

    • Cool that you made stickers! I’ve made book labels before, using art bits from the book (with the illustrator’s permission, of course). Those were a big hit. It IS nerve-wracking handing out stuff you actually make. You don’t want them to just toss it in the trash, but then, what if that’s where it actually belongs? See my insecurities shining through?

      Luckily, I’m not a perfectionist. I started measuring these and trying to make the angles all match, and then it was like, Get real. I’m never going to get through even 12 of these! :>)
