Two good things happened today: I'm taking a much-needed vacation day, and in the mail from a friend I got a beautiful piece of decorated paper that had once served as the lining of an envelope (see below). I scanned the paper, increased the image size, put a ruler template png file on top of it, and then cropped the image to the edges of the ruler. Then I copied the new ruler five times onto a sheet of 8.5 x 11 paper and printed the result on cardstock, ready to be cut up into five beautiful new ruler/bookmarks.
All I need now to make a perfect day is a dinner at my favorite restaurant, Tanjore!
