My Hobby

Let’s see. Today I might go fly a kite, or maybe go for a swim.

It is hot outside, and I don’t know what to do.

My mom tells me that I should do something that I like doing on hot days.

Since our house is nice and cool, I guess I’ll stay inside and work on my hobby. 

My hobby is something that not a lot of people do.

I make and collect bookmarks. 

To make my bookmarks, I use stickers, and special art pencils to draw.

I buy the stickers at a mall, usually in a card store.

The art pencils are bought in an art store.

To make the bookmarks, I start with a piece of paper.

I measure out how big I want the bookmark to be with a ruler.

I once made a bookmark so big, that it couldn’t even be used in a very big book!

After I measure it, I draw lines so that I can cut it straight.

Sometimes, I use fancy scissors that cut zig-zags or frills.

Then I start to decorate them. 

I like to draw cartoons and flowers on my bookmarks.

Sometimes, I even put real flowers on them.

A lot of the time I write little sayings on the bookmarks.

I like to give my bookmarks to friends and family. Sometimes,

I even sell my bookmarks to people. 

I like my hobby.

I can draw whatever I want on the bookmarks.

Maybe sometime in the future I will be a famous bookmark maker and even have my own store!
