Hers ‘n His Bookmarks

Both of you reading War and Peace together? Harry Potter? Maybe the Bible or the Qur’an?

his and hers bookmarks

Here’s the perfect solution for classy partners who read and share. Never lose your place again.

This project stemmed from the upcoming wedding of one member of my collaborative and sneaky art group, the Bay Area Book Artists.

We secretly designed this gift for him in particular, each participating member creating a page of verse and art about love that was to his taste of the early classics.

Then member Don Drake of Dreamingmind Bindery leatherbound the pages into a fine specimen of art group collaboration, gift-giving and taste.

I did not find myself resonating with the early classics theme but proposed early on that I do something in crochet. Crochet is a classic art form, I argued, because people have been crocheting since we had fingers. (Yes, you don’t need a fancy hook.)

I asked if the group would accept an offering of, say, a crocheted bookmark in some shape or other. Sure, they said. I went to work.

Remembering the comments about my contribution to this group’s past collaborative wedding gift of a bookquet, I felt it my responsibility to answer their previously unmet wishes.

Seems to resonate with the classic theme, don’t you think?

Candy Dish

alt pic textI gave one of these little male guys to my dental hygenist who’s been one of my biggest fans for years now. I got an email later that evening from her saying, “When I got home, I was playing with it and accidentally dropped it but it landed straight up!”

coasterYeah, that’s what it is — a coaster. With little protective sentinels to be sure the wrong person doesn’t take your drink.

Exotic Erotic Ball

Or I could call this post – Pricasso meets When Doilies go Bad.

I, Laura Mappin, showed my wares (actually not like you’re thinking but hey, I’ll leave it) at the Exotic Erotic Art Festival and Ball.

I had the most fun when Pricasso painted my portrait. What did he use for a brush? Yup.

And what did I hold with me in the portrait? Take a look ~

Before we begin …

Ya know, it sure looked like it would be uncomfortable but he swore it was not and I saw him paint for two days in a row. Ok then …


Am i really here sitting for this? Umm, I think I asked for it.


me with doily
and backdrop
at this special painting sitting …
… all too confusing.



Picture comes to life

now I can’t draw or paint even remotely this representatively with any appendage I own. can you?

butt painting. I now have his butt prints forever. on the same page as his cock tip print! see his signature below? he does all the letters with a brush but the last letter is … an … O.


This whole thing was hilarious the whole way through! I’m laughing now just looking at these pics again.

Tim was fun to meet, a nice guy, graciously answering everyone’s questions he’s heard so many times before – does it hurt? do you cover it while painting? use any salve? acrylics, right? how do you keep it clean? does stuff get up in there? does it still work? you’ll have to see him for the answers.

I have to say I thought I’d be uncomfortable at this event, but given my product line I had to check it out.

Years ago I wrote about suggesting we have one day a year when it’s legal to go around naked, you know, where we all could sit on our front porches naked if we wanted to and not get arrested.

It’s just because we have these bodies. Yes, it’s a fact – news flash just in – we all have these fleshy bodies with various erogenous zones. And we do so much to hide that fact, it seems to me.

But I thought there’d be groping and a lot of sleaze at this event. And I found there wasn’t. One guy did start chatting me up and I told him I wasn’t interested and he smiled and left. It was that easy.

Now I wonder who you are as the reader of this post. If you’ve gone to this event before, you’re probably thinking finally, I get it. Or if you’re of the kind who has your own view of what a perfect world would be like and this does not fit, you’re probably thinking I just fell over the edge.

I cannot tell you I was comfortable with everything I saw. I was not. I did not like seeing older fully clothed men with bad posture walking around by themselves taking pictures with telephotos. Very slimy, man.

Then there were the groups of younger guys wearing at least three layers of clothing (just to be sure?) walking around gawking. Well, hopefully they grow out of it but I have no hope for the older solo men.

I did like being around people who were naked to the level of their own choosing, costumed by choice. I liked seeing men asking women (it usually went this direction) if they could take their picture. I also liked that some women said no and the men respected this. That kind of behavior in any environment is superb.

Many thanks to my good friend Gary for this series of photos.
