A Very Handmade Holidays – Day 2


Hi friends! Last year I had this idea for a fun week of giveaways around the holidays and threw it together last minute. I was beyond psyched to have so many great Etsy shops and artists be down to collaborate and I was even more excited when the giveaways happened and y’all were excited!! I know I don’t do a lot of giveaways on this site (at least not as many as I wish I could share with you) but I really wanted to give back to you guys. You give me so much all year round β€” friendship, encouragement, book recs, laughs, lovely comments and support β€” so this giveaway is hopefully a way to show my appreciation and to spotlight some awesome bookish businesses.

Check out all the other Handmade Holiday posts here!


Day 2 of A Very Handmade Holiday brings us:

Evie is another blogger (her blog here!) who I’ve known for a while! She’s awesome, guys, and her shop is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever laid my eyes on.

  2. Rachel Alison says:

    i love these designs so much! thank you!

  3. These mugs are amazing. I would love to win one as a gift for my book-loving sister.

  4. Chelsea Smith says:

    Oh my goodness! This is fantastic. I would love to have the “between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be.” That mug is gorgeous 😍

  5. My favorite mug I own is one with the SHIELD and Hydra signs on it!
    And I’d love this mug of her’s: https://society6.com/product/a-court-of-thorns-and-roses-book-quote-design_mug#27=199

  6. My fave mug would be the one I made with the words “This mug is a Horcrux” πŸ™‚

  7. I love any of the Six of Crow mugs!!!

  8. Oh, man! Those Pride and Prejudice mugs are amazing!!! Actually all of her designs are amazing!

  9. These mugs are so awesome. I love bookish mugs.

  10. Thanks a lot! I looove the six of crows one!

  11. I have been eyeing Evie’s designs forever! My favorite mug I own is a Luke’s Diner mug.

  12. I just got a “Reading is Beautiful” travel mug from Evie’s shop, but my fave mug is either my Penguin P&P one or my Reading is Sexy one. =)

  13. I’ve started a mug-collecting-fever at the beginning of this year. I just can’t get enough of cute/bookish mugs! My favorite ones are probably my Harry Potter one, Little Mermaid, ‘Shut up I’m reading’, one with a quote about reading that I got from my grandparents and ‘All you need are books and tea’.

    I’m definitely entering the giveaway. What a wonderful mugs! I want them all, but these:

    *grabby hands*

  14. I love the book fox and also all of them!

  15. Holy wow, her art is beautiful! I really like her “rattle the stars” Throne of Glass mug and…so many of them, lol. If I win this giveaway, it’s going to be a struggle to pick!

  16. Bianca Rogoveanu says:
  17. Kathleen Pasqualini says:

    My favorite mug is from when I was a kid. It’s yellow with the M&M’s on it. I use that and my favorite spoon whenever I eat ice cream.

  18. I love all of Evie Seo’s designs! I think I would like a mug from any of the Throne of Glass designs she has. So gorgeous.

  19. I’m OBSESSED with the Heart is an Arrow-Six of Crows design! It would be a wonderful mug to get as a present πŸ˜€

  20. Oh wow, I want them all!!! I especially love the fox and the tea ones, but they are all amazing!

  21. I don’t have a favorite mug but I absolutely adore all of Seo’s! I really like her black and white ones :).

  22. Thanks for the giveaway, Jamie! I hadn’t seen Evie’s mugs before, but they’re gorgeous. I really like the “I spent my life folded between the pages of books” quote. My favorite mug right now is the one my secret sister just sent me, which is tall and has a cute, winter-y sweater pattern on it. πŸ˜€

  23. I LOVE so many of her designs! I would probably get one of the bookish quote designs on a mug.

  24. Oh. My. Gosh. I am in looooove. I have an obsession with coffee mugs, and this is just absolutely perfect. I think some Katie McGarry mugs would be great, or Graffiti Moon, or Infernal Devices. Oh my gosh, my debit card is going to murder me now that I know about these.

  25. This is awesome!! I love mugs of all kind. I dare say I rarely use any cups. My favourite mug, is a Ravenclaw mug with the Hogwarts crest I got at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando. I love it to pieces!

  26. OBV the favorite mug that I own is the RAVEN BOYS mug that my cool secret santa bought for me πŸ™‚ I also love so many of the designs in Evie’s store. She makes beautiful stuff!

  27. All of these mugs are amazing but I have a soft spot for the No Mourners. No Funerals mug. πŸ™‚

  28. Thank you so much for the giveaway. I am currently looking through her shop and GAH! Everything is so lovely. I really like her throwpillows, too! I can’t decide which mug I like the best. There is one on there that has the quote “Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be” and it’s adorable. But, to be honest, I want them all XD.

  29. I have so many mugs that I love, but my favourite mug is still my High School Musical mug with “Troy” on it…Zac Efron is so freaking cute on it!! haha I bought it with my best friend back when we were in junior high and I’ve loved it ever since. πŸ˜€

  30. I LOVE all of Evie’s designs! I’ve been eyeing the #CurrentlyReading or ADSOM quote mugs for quite a while… They’re both on my holidays lists but if I don’t receive them I’m probably gonna purchase one for myself. So pretty! πŸ˜€

  31. Thank you for these great giveaways πŸ™‚ I love pretty much everything on Evie’s shop, it would be so hard to pick a favourite! As a Brit, though, I think I would have to go for the ‘Drink great tea, read great books’ mug.

  32. There’s so many great mugs! And other cool stuff too πŸ™‚
    This is my fav mug from there: https://society6.com/product/drink-good-coffee-read-good-books-ume_mug#27=199

  33. These are absolutely gorgeous! I don’t know how I would even pick one!

  34. I’m pretty sure I’d pick by throwing a dart at the collection and going “THAT ONE”

  35. Johanna Miller says:

    drink good coffee and read good books indeed!

  36. I’m partial to: Books are a Uniquely Portable Magic Gold

  37. I love mugs! I just checked out her site and The Scorpio Races mugs are amazing!

  38. Leah Heath says:

    My favorite mug that I have is my Good Mythical Morning mug. To bad it can’t go in the dishwasher though.

  39. I love the one with the fox! The Pride and Prejudice one is also beautiful – these cups all look so flawless!

  40. Considering my blog is called Books & Tea, I feel her mug that says “Drink good tea and read good books” is meant for me. Although, I am fond of the mugs that I already own. I bought one during my visit to Chicago recently that features a grungy silhouette of part of the Chicago skyline. I also frequently steal my boyfriend’s Batman mug!

  41. Evie’s designs are definitely one of the best! Her designs are really great, and I really like her Pride and Prejudice’s design!

  42. My favourite mug is one that I’ve had forever: it’s purple with Tweety on it. πŸ˜€ It’s not particularly pretty or anything, but I’ve had it since I was in elementary school so I’m really attached to it, haha. Again, thank you for the giveaway, Jamie!

  43. I really love these mugs! Even just on the first few pages I found ao many that I love

  44. Gah I want soo many! My favourite mug at home is genuinely this pink Winnie The Pooh and Piglet one, that I got FOREVER ago (we’re talking 15 years or so) from one of the local petrol stations when they used to do giveaways. I think I love it so much because I’ve had it for so damn long haha!

  45. Thanks for the giveaway! I have this mug from when I was 2 and I got it from Disney World – it had my name on it! So, it’s probably my favorite mug for sentimental reasons πŸ˜€

  46. oMG OMG OMG they’re great! Thank you so much for the opportunity!

  47. Casi Syracuse says:

    I absolutely love them all!!! I will be forwarding links to the etsy sites to my hubby!!! He won’t be home from deployment until Jan 4th so he has time!!!

  48. My favorite mugs to use are my Tigger mug & disappearing TARDIS mug! I’d love to own any of Evie’s mugs.

  49. I love the mugs, they are so pretty and creative. They truly show our love for books but also for coffee!! my favorite is the one that says between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be

  50. My favorite mug is one that I’ve had forever and is a worn out (some of the paint fading), but it’s big so I can fit more coffee in it! I absolutely love Evie’s shop- I have a ton of her items on my wishlist. It would be hard to pick a favorite. Maybe the Daughter of Smoke and Bone mug, or the Illuminae “Am I not merciful?” might be good for work, lol. Happy holidays!

  51. Artemis Giote says:

    My favorite mug is Alice in Wonderland. I have it for years.
    Thank you for the chance!!!!

  52. My current favorite mug that I own is a brand new Olaf mug I found at a garage sale that says “I love all things warm”.

  53. My favorite mug I own is a Star Wars mug. From this shop, I’d love to gift the reading fox with glasses to a friend!

  54. I want the one about Between the Pages of a Book is where I want to be!

  55. I used to have this awesome Doctor Who mug that when you added hot water the TADRIS would disappear and reappear in space. IT WAS SO COOL…until it accidentally got put in the dishwasher and was ruined.

  56. I LOVE Society6 in general and Evie has some amazing designs! I also collect mugs, so this giveaway is awesome. One of my favorites? Hmm…I have one that says Shh…I’m Reading all over it that is such fun!

  57. All of these mugs are great, I think my favorite mug I own is my Harry Potter Mischief Managed mug. I do like the Between the Pages of a book mug.

  58. All of her mug designs are glorious! If I had to choose, I would pick a Shatter Me quote mug.

  59. I love that fire-breathing mug. It looks so badass. One of my favorite mugs that I have is from Monticello. It’s a quote by Thomas Jefferson that says “I cannot live without books” because he was a huge bookworm, too.

  60. I really really love the last one!

  61. I’ve been eyeing the bespectacled fox for quite a while, actually!

  62. I actually just received a mug yesterday for Christmas from my sister. It is an owl and when you drink from it, it says ‘be happy’ on the inside rim of the mug!

  63. My favorite mug was the one with modern drawn flowers, but it’s broken now. πŸ™

  64. My favorite mug is my favorite because it was my dad’s when he was in the Naval Academy, and it holds about 34 oz. Perfect for my first cup of coffee! πŸ˜‰
    I love her green Time to Read mug: https://society6.com/product/time-to-read-green_mug#27=199
    And her Jane Austen “agreeable people” quote mug: https://society6.com/product/jane-austen-quote-design-agreeable_mug#27=199

  65. Cindy Myers says:

    At the moment my favorite mug is an Owl mug I bought at my work a couple years ago but I just noticed a crack. A mug I would love to own is the Between the Pages – Feathery White mug from your shop. Its so lovely. πŸ™‚

  66. I NEED the fire-breathing bitch queen mug! It is life giving.

  67. I have two favorite mugs and one has macarons on it and the other is a pretty Anthropology mug with hand-painted deer on it.
    Thanks so much for the chance to win one of these amazing mugs! ;-D

  68. One of my favorite mugs I own is the Hedwig mug from the HP collection at Hot Topic! I just got it as a christmas gift this year! thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway! crossing my fingers!

  69. I have so many mugs, but I always want more, specially bookish ones like these! They’re amazing.

  70. I want the Fine, Make Me Your Villian mug! Thanks for the giveaway!
    Missie @ A Flurry of Ponderings

  71. Is it cheating to say all of them?

  72. A long time ago, I won a mug from an author named Stacey Jay for her book Undead Much? that has a girl with a shovel on her back and it says… Got Zombie? I love it. πŸ™‚

  73. *heart eyes everywhere* I LOVE THESE MUGS! I probably do NOT need more mugs (given how many Star Wars mugs I got for Christmas) BUT none of my mugs are bookish or Evie’s! I love her designs. The fox one is SO cute!

    Thank you, ladies! Happy New Year! πŸ™‚

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  74. I love Evie’s designs! I’m waiting for my pillow cover to arrive – same as the last mug design, so I’d love a matching mug! The fox is pretty awesome too.

  75. I have a mug from Harvard bookstore that says Caution: Hot and Literate that might be my favorite current bookish mug. Though I love the ones in this store as well!!

  76. My favorite mug is my Snow White one I got as a gift from a friend. I think she got it from a Disney store. There are too many pretty mugs to choose from Evie’s shop! I would love any one on her designs, especially the ones with book quotes! Thanks for the giveaway πŸ™‚
