I got a box yesterday.  A box that is filled with 5,000 strips of glossy paper.  This is what it looks like inside:

As you might notice, those strips are the artwork from the FREEFALL cover in bookmark form!   (Bookmark design by Shane from Dwayne's band, Alabaster).  Fun, right? 

Since the FREEFALL bookmarks have arrived, I've found a number of different ways that one can use them. 

1.  You can build a falling-down one-story house of FREEFALL bookmarks:

2.  You can make a FREEFALL bookmark fan. . . :

3.  . . . And then hide behind said fan:

4.  FREEFALL bookmarks are also a great way to dress up ordinary pets:


5. And if you wanna, you can use FREEFALL bookmarks to keep your place in your own copy of FREEFALL (when you receive it in October, I mean):

As you can see, the options are pretty much limitless!  What would you do with FREEFALL bookmarks? 

(Oh, and if you would like a free bookmark or two or hundred, please email me (mindirochelle AT gmail DOT com) with your name, mailing address, and the number of bookmarks you'd like and I'll do my best to share the FREEFALL bookmark joy.  Unless I get overwhelmed with requests.  Then I'll just lie here curled up on the floor next to my box of bookmarks and wish I were an organized, on-top-of-things person.)

Pretty! I'll email you my info--I'd be happy to leave some at Capitol Hill indie bookstore.

Also, your cats are adorable.

Awwww! Thanks! :-)

I'll be picking up more envelopes, so hopefully I get them out in the mail today!

My kitty, Daemon, would look fabulous wearing some FREEFALL bling!

Re: :)
FOR SURE. I'll send you bunches of them to make sure he can get all decked out. ;-)

Whoa! Those are fantastic! Congratulations.

Thanks, Shaun! I gave out bunches of them last night and am packaging up more to mail, but I haven't even made a dent in the box yet. Maybe I can convince a concert venue to have them fall like confetti over a crowd. ;-)

Oh man, I hope they are equally useful for dressing up ordinary children.
Mindi Scottmindiscott on June 25th, 2010 09:42 pm (UTC)
I think I might have to send you some to find out!

Do you need a pile of bookmarks or just a couple? :-D
Annikanoirbettie on June 25th, 2010 09:45 pm (UTC)
Oh, better send a pile. I have tall babies. And also a lot of books in which to put bookmarks.

Mindi Scottmindiscott on June 27th, 2010 05:18 pm (UTC)
Done! :-)

I think the dressing up pets is the best use :P I have no cat to dress up, but I do have a bunny. Your cats are absolutely adorable!
Mindi Scottmindiscott on June 27th, 2010 05:20 pm (UTC)
Your bunny would look fabulous with bookmarks as bling. Just let me know if you need any! Oh, and I'll want to see pictures. ;-)
