Your Makeshift Bookmarks (13)

Your Makeshift Bookmarks is derived from two things: a) my obvious blog name and tendency to use inane objects to mark my pages. And b) Jamie from The Perpetual Page Turner's inspiration (and suggestion!) to start a blog feature where you all can show off the awesome, random crap you use for bookmarks.

And by the way, if you're interested in recording a vlog or doing a photo post for YOUR makeshift bookmarks, shoot me an email at makeshiftbookmark at gmail dot com and I'll be glad to feature you <3


Well I haven't done one of these in awhile, given school and all that annoying junk. But I've been waiting FOREVER to feature one of my favorite bloggers, Lisa from Lisa is Busy Nerding. Number one, I just love that blog name. There are no better people out there than nerds. Especially bookish nerds. If you disagree, GTFO ;) Number two, Lisa is an amazing person to talk to. If you need someone to brighten your day at any time, definitely talk to Lisa.

STARBUCKS SLEEVES. This girl clearly knows how to makeshift it up. I've totally done this. And honestly, I can't lie. I use regular bookmarks sometimes, too. SOMETIMES. But right now? I'm using a receipt from the vet where I paid $24 for Bella's meds. So I'm true to my blog for the time being :)

LISA. Thank you so much for stopping by and participating. I friggin' love this feature and I hope more people want to participate because I love having you guys. If you want to know more about Lisa (I know you do) then head on over to Lisa is Busy Nerding for the full experience. You shan't regret it.


  1. The library receipt was great!
    The other night I was too lazy to get out of bed to hunt down a suitable anything to use as a bookmark, so I stuck a notepad in my book. I cringed a bit because it's not good for the binding, but lazy won out. :)

  2. How much do I love Lisa? So much. Best cheerleader out there, no? Also gives bangin' book recommendations.

    I also use regular bookmarks a lot of the time, although they're all homemade. But not by me, because I'm not crafty at all.

    Lovely video blog by a lovely blogger.


  3. boyfriend says the same things about me reading in the car. But I can say it won't change because sometimes I just can't wait until I get home to start a book. Great video!

  4. I LOVE LISA. Seriously. Like for real. I may have a girlish crush on her. TMI? This vlog cracked me up. Best get your library book renewed! haha And I know a certain TaraQ who might appreciate your Harry Potter bookmarks :-)

    P.S. I currently own & use Lisa's bookmarks she makes. They are super-fab.

    P.P.S. What up business card!

  5. thank you for having meeeee <3

    Ash - MWAH
    Casey - boys just don't understand, man.
    G - NOT TMI. juuuuuuuust right.

    SO MUCH LOVE oxoxoxoxoxo

  6. I am reading on my kindle right now, but with my last book I was using the football ticket from the game my husband went to last Saturday.

  7. I've been trying to be good at using real bookmarks lately since I have a coffee can full of them. I've been switching it up after every book.
    I totally use library slips too, though! My library puts little slips in your books that come in from being on hold so I'm always using those.

  8. Making bookmarks! LISA YOU ARE SO NERDY COOL! =)

    Also I am VERY jealous that you can read in the car. Just reading my phone for 15 minutes straight makes me pukey. =(
