What is Tote(ally) Tuesdays?

Well, fellow bookish friends, I'm glad you asked! I've been absent on here for the past two weeks for the most part, because I opened an Etsy shop! Yay! I've always been an artistic person, mostly with drawing, but over the past few years, I've dabbled in acrylic painting more and more. I started painting shoes for my nieces and nephew for holidays/birthdays, but then I got a wild hair to try and paint a tote! I surprised my best friend, Sarah, with one, and then my partner for a bookish swap, and then my blogging idol & friend, Andye! You can see pictures of all those totes here, and even enter an INT Giveaway to win a customized tote for yourself! 

However, I have been painting like crazy after opening my Etsy for orders, and everyone always goes crazy in love on twitter when I post a pic of my most recently painted totes. So I thought, maybe I should start posting them semi-regularly on the blog in one convenient place! Voila! Tote(ally) Tuesday was born!

My very first customer! ALL THE WAY FROM SPAIN! (<3 you Pili!!) 
Seriously IN LOVE with this one I designed for Andi!!! <3 you!!
One for Brittany...
Number Two for Brittany... (LOL <3 you girl!!)
One for a PBR Reader! Hi Rayna!! *waves*
Number three for Brittany...Except this one doesn't really count bc it was for a friend! <3

An Anna & the French Kiss tote I donated for an Isla Read a long giveaway!

This tote is Pili's second order!! I love it so so so much, because it's a quote from the 2nd book of one of both of our's fav series! I just finished it last night! I love how it turned out!!

Okay! So that is what I've been up to lately! I've also been covered in paint from head to toe! Painting totes is messy business! Remember, if you're interested in a tote, head over to my Etsy shop (PIVOT BOOK TOTES) or enter to win one! I mostly just do requests, but this winter I plan on just making some and putting each up for sale! 

Let's discuss!
