Bookmark Exchange – August 2011

Denise is issuing a call to join a Bookmark Exchange.

The rules are simple:
Create 1 bookmark for everyone that signs up
The body of the bookmark must be flat – so we don’t ruin any books

The exchange will take place at the August CCG Meeting.

If you want to sign up, please contact Denise (her info is in your guild directories) and she’ll add you to the list.

She will get in touch with everyone that signs up by July how many signed up and therefore exactly how many bookmarks you’ll be making.
