Doctor, Doctor

Everybody open wide, stick out their tongues and say aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh. Let Dr Emma explain lol, while teepee shopping last Sunday I went into one of these shops where they sell all sorts of pretty and quirky little things. I came upon some book marks and on scrutinising them they were like 2 very large lollipop sticks put on top of each other, with one slighter higher than the other with a sheep at the top it.

My crafty juices started to flow and thought hmm that's so simple I'll have a go. I was thinking shall I use lollipop sticks, are they going to be wide enough or shall I have a look around the internet. It suddenly dawned on me what I could use were tongue depressants from the surgery I work in! Don't worry the NHS purse isn't been drained of it's resources by me ;D, they are the one's the reps bring in. I have been thinking for more uses for the tongue depressants, maybe using it like chipboard and covering or painting them ?

Let me know what you think, have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

I'm quite happy for my little monetary contribution to be used in conjunction with these adorable bookmarks as well as funding the NHS so feel free to make more!
Such a clever idea - much nicer marking a book than pressing down a tongue!
