As I continue to search for banners to celebrate and feature, my blog folder and Etsy favorites are filling-up dramatically! So many creative people out there; I love it!
Today's creative banner is courtesy of the wonderful Bookity. In business since August, Bookity's mission is to recycle unwanted, unusable books, hence the clever name. Here's her engaging Etsy shop banner to start:
The simplicity and charm of these creations, especially this banner - the "Paper Shakespearean" garland, is what I adore most:
And frankly, I like to say the shop name: "Bookity". So catchy!
More Bookity inspirations:
She may be based in Reading UK (which is wonderful planning on her part, really), but she ships internationally, happily upgrades shipping if you ask, and invites custom orders "in the spirit of adventure and the creation of shiny things". Best of all is Bookity's motto: "have sewing machine, will make." In fact, I think it's this 'inveterate optimism' that pervades and draws me in! "That's the spirit!" I cry. And the ticket to beautiful, repurposed, handmade items from Bookity. Check it out.
This week, in the calm before the storm, I am going to try to catch up on some reading, Wolf Hall in particular.
So... 'read on, McDuff', and make it a banner day! tIO x
