Final Day of A Very Handmade Holiday — 2 Giveaways In One Post!


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 — friendship, encouragement, book recs, laughs, lovely comments and support — so this giveaway is hopefully a way to show my appreciation and to spotlight some awesome bookish businesses.


Merry Christmas Eve to those who are celebrating! I’m excited to go spend the evening with family and eat an amazing meal (seriously, Will’s uncle is the best cook and we always have filet mignon which is like the only time I eat it).

Today, for the final day of A Very Handmade Holiday, we have TWO amazing Etsy shops to highlight!! They both helped debut this fun event last year and I’m so happy to have them on board again this year!


First up is :


Tiny Book Town

I loooove Tiny Book Town! The thought of adding some of my fave books and their cover onto a necklace? LOVE IT. She’s got mostly classics (and some BEAUTIFUL editions for covers) but also some more contemporary stuff like Rainbow Rowell, John Green, Stephanie Perkins, George R.R. Martin!

Here are some of the ones I’m pining for (you can check out what I loved last year from her shop!)

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. Kathleen Pasqualini says:

    I know it’s from a TV show, but I’d love a Veronica Mars inspired necklace. There’s two books out that continue her story and I love them.

    #2: Alice in Wonderland “We’re all mad here” <3

  2. Ooh, these are both so pretty! I love the Handmade Holiday. It’s such a cool idea.

  3. Rachel Alison says:

    I’d love to see ‘Anne of Windy Poplars’ as a book necklace!

  4. I so agree with you!! I’d love a Rattle The Stars quote one, that comes with a star necklace!

    I’d love to see Queen of Shadows as a necklace! Or the Princess Diaries!

  5. Um. I totally need that magic quote/necklace thing. BECAUSE IT MAKES MY EYES ALL GLITTERY!! Whether I win or not, I will be bookmarking that etsy shop. wow. *glittery heart eyes*

  6. I would love a little camera or guitar with a quote about friendship from Open Road Summer. Or even a little tour bus?

  7. I’d love a quote from The Invention of Hugo Cabret on a clock/gears

  8. Artemis Giote says:

    A necklace with a little red rose and the quote “It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.” from The little Prince!

  9. I would like to see a necklace with my favorite saying on it, which is “You live and you learn.” I love this website, thanks for directing me to it.

  10. I would like to see a book with Lois Lowry on the front.

  11. I would love to see the cover for Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda made in a necklace. 🙂

  12. Pride and Prejudice as a necklace would be gorgeous!

  16. Oh man, I would love to see any of the Queen’s Thief books as a necklace. But for quotes, I’m not so sure. There are so many!

  17. Anything related to the Dark Tower series by Stephen King would be great! In fact, a necklace with the Dark Tower on it would be awesome. Or a red rose because roses are very important to the story. As to quotes, with 8 books to choose from, there are so many. My favorite? Maybe “Go then. There are other worlds than these.”

  18. Ooooo I’d either have to go for “Conversation was irrelevant. Only pie mattered” from The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead OR “It is rarely a lack of love that forces two hearts apart, but other obstacles.” from The Mortal Heart by Robin LaFevers.

  19. I love the Anne one, and I’d love any quote from that book!

  20. These are gorgeous! I think an ACOTAR one would make as a fantastic necklace! I would also like to see a Shatter Me quote on a necklace, saying IGNITE or something.

  21. The book that I would like to see as a necklace would be The Wizard of Oz (but I do like Anne of Green Gables as well). Also, the quote that I like is pictured in this blog post (so many books, too little time).

  23. I would love to see the book Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor made into a charm. It’s one of my favorite books!
