Where will it take place? ::: In your favorite cozy reading nook. Whether it be while wrapped in fleece blankets in bed... sitting by the fireside drinking hot chocolate... or maybe on the sunny beach!

Next up, I'd like to introduce you to the LOVELY Etsy shop that is sponsoring an awesome prize for my dear readers...

Fold Between The Lines

This shop offers fun decor pieces MADE OUT OF ACTUAL BOOKS, ya'll!
All of us bookworms LOVE this kind of stuff (and you better be paying attention on the unique Christmas gifts you could be buying right now!)...

Check out these seasonal 3D pieces made out of book pages & the amazingly-detailed folded book art (you can even get custom words and dates like this from Fold Between The Lines)...

::: in the words of Allison :::

I originally started making art out of books because I hated to see so many books being thrown away and ending up in the dump. I love to read, so I thought this was the perfect way to combine my love of reading with my ability to upcycle and create artwork out of used books. My little business has allowed me to stay home with my 4 year old twins. I absolutely love it!
