No Cover Puppies post today, friends! I'm currently in the depths of novel writing (cough, two weeks late into NaNo, cough cough! But at least, I'm still doing it!) Anyways, no Cover Puppies today, BUT never fear, because I have something better to show you.

Better? How can something be better than you puppify-ing book covers, Becca?

Well, let me introduce you to PIVOT BOOK TOTES!

Yes, TOTES totes. 

Recently, I've gotten into painting again. More specifically, painting totes for some of my dearest blogging/bookish buddies.

First, I surprised my best friend, Sarah, with this one..

Little did I know, at the time, that she would surprise me right back with praise from none other than.....


Also here's the bestie with JLA! (AND MY BAG!!!)

Seriously. This was the best thing ever. EVERRRR.

The next bag I did was for Kristen for the Books 'n' Bloggers Swap!

And this week, I surprised my blogging buddy/idol Andye with this one..

So what is one thing that all three of these totes have in common with the other? They were all posted on social media and universally gushed about like crazy. I didn't really think they were that great, but the praise seems to say otherwise. I really want to open an etsy shop, but I'm not sure how all of that works or anything. If you know how to etsy, email me please (beccaf97200 at gmail dot com)! TEACH ME HOW TO ETSY! 

*NEWS* Since posting this I have somewhat discovered "how to Etsy". It's not the prettiest shop on Etsy but it gets the job done.

  1. Hey! I am friends with Sarah as well. She and I were actually paired up during the Books n Blogger Swap. She mentions you all of the time, so I know that you are awesome! All of this to say that I would LOVE to buy one of these totes from you. They really are amazing, and it's a good way to advertise one's blog if I ever get to finally go to a book event!
