A new segment I've decided to start on the blog because well, let's face it, we all freaking love Etsy.com! If you aren't familiar with Etsy.com, it's basically an online story where are people are able to sell their handmade items and people, in return, can find these uniquely made items that aren't sold anywhere else. Recently I've been going on a shopping spree and can't seem to stop ordering from the site. I wanted to share my favorite items and feature some really amazing stores!
If you recall, I did a post about the best stores to buy handmade bookmarks. I ordered from LillyTalesShop on Etsy and my package finally came in the mail. Shipping does vary depending on the person that's sending the item and where you live. Each piece is handmade and made with a labor of love by these people that just want people to appreciate their art.

And I Ordered....
A custom made bookmark that incorporates my favorite quote from my ALL TIME FAVORITE SERIES Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. You guys know I can't seem to post anything without mentioning Throne of Glass and sorry if it's quite annoying. I first started out with kindly telling Kate (the shop owner) that I wanted something very symbolic of the series, Being the awesome person she is, she was able to come up with this mock-up for me. And I totally fell in love with it so she got into making the bookmark right away.
The Final Piece (Picture taken w/ my books)
I am 100% happy with the way the design turned out. I also got a touch and feel of the quality myself, and I thought it was just so amazing how she was able to create wooden bookmarks that were thin enough to fit in books. When I put my bookmark in my book, it didn't jut out weirdly or fall out numerous times. If you would like to purchase from Kate on her fabulous Etsy, CLICK HERE! Take a look at her tremendous catalog of designs and pick the one that suits you the most. If you'd like a custom design just order the custom design option and wait till she contacts you back! Hope you liked this post, and I hope I've encouraged you into purchasing one of these unique bookmarks for yourself.
