Last March I completed a bookmark for my son. He picked the pattern and the fabric to stitch it on, as well as requesting a change to one of the colors in it. No sooner than the glue had dried on it, he claimed it and then "hid" it in his favorite book. And then promptly forgot what his favorite book was. We have even taken all his books off the shelf and gone through each of them trying to find it (did this several times over the past year). Then yesterday, my son pulled a book off his shelf to read during his nap and guess what we found! So I finially have a picture of the bookmark!
