Holiday Reading: Fun Bookish Winter Activities

Hi everyone,

Today I’m going to share with you a few fun bookish winter activities!

  1. Reorganize Your Bookshelf!

Epic Reads has a very fun quiz you can take on how you should reorganize your bookshelf, and you can play it here!

2. Visit Your Local Library

Believe it or not, there are still many people who have yet to lay eyes on their local libraries shelves, and you might be one of them! Several months ago, I made a tour of my library and you can read about it here.

3.  Host a Book Club

Maybe a few of your closest friends love to read and have nothing to do over the break! Create and host a book club meeting for all of your friends to enjoy!

I hope that you enjoyed my top 3 bookish activities to do this winter break!

Good Night Book Owls!


Happy Easter & DIY Easter Bookmarks!

Hi everyone!

In honour of Easter, I’m going to be making a DIY Easter Themed Book Mark!

Let’s get started!



Bookmark Sized Colours





1. Cut out small “egg shaped” oval’s on different strips of construction paper.


2. Next, you are going to want to tape all of the bookmarks down, and it should look somewhat like this!


3. Finally, you can outline the eggs in a silver sharpie, just like I did! You can also design/decorate the easter eggs like you may do during this time.


Now, you’re all finished!


I hope you guys liked this Easter DIY Bookmark design!

Happy Easter to all of those celebrating!

DIY Bookish Mugs!

Hey guys!

Today, I’m going to be showing you some design’s that you can make all by yourself, using only a few materials to create your very own bookish mug!

PLEASE READ: I am only using these mugs for decor and storage, so I did not use oil based sharpies or bake it in the oven. I will not be drinking out of this mug.


  • Blank/White Mug
  • Sharpies (I used Black and Silver)
  • Pencil


First, I purchased a white mug (I actually got 2) from my nearest Dollar store. They were $1.25 each.


I then sketched out my designs with a pencil first. I used an HB pencil, but I’m sure others would work, too! Feel free to get inspiration Online.


Finally, I outlined my mug’s, and here is how the first one turned out! For the front side, I drew an open book with a picture in the right corner! By the picture you can’t tell, but I used the silver sharpie for outlining the “words” (squiggly lines” and picture.


On the back of the previous mug, I included my favourite bookish quotes! Here are the ones I used:

  • Books belong to their readers.
  • Everybody should believe in something, I believe I’ll read the next chapter.
  • You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy books, and that’s kind of the same thing!


For my second mug, I wrote the word “Reading” all the way around it, and coloured the outer part of the handle in a thick silver sharpie, a well as the dots.

I hope you enjoyed my DIY Bookish Mugs! Many of you seem to love my diy’s, and if you do stay tuned to my Easter bookmark DIY! I worked really hard on these mugs, and it definitely payed off!

Anyone who will be celebrating Passover tonight, Happy Pesach (Passover)!

Also, I wanted to answer a VERY popular question I get asked almost every time I make a DIY and take pictures. This question is; “What camera do you use for your pictures?” Surprisingly, I actually just use my iPad Mini 2nd Generation! I like to “enhance” my photos and mix up a ton of pictures so that the quality looks gorgeous. I have the WordPress app for iPad downloaded, so I upload my pictures in a draft post, and then I can access them by clicking the “Add Media” section once I do a post with them!

I will see you guys tomorrow for a new post!

Good Night Book Lions!
