Today’s #MiddleEarthMarch prompt is: Dunharrow, curses and ghosts on The Paths of the Dead.
A little throwback to one of the bookmarks I made for Halloween! This design will be back during spooky season (which is basically every day for me but autumn for everyone else 😜) I’m hard at work finishing up the Game of Thrones collection and I’m trying a few things I haven’t done before! I’m super excited for you guys to see them and hope you like the new art 🙈

Love this picture and feeling like a full Star Wars rewatch is in my immediate future!
So I’m one of the few people on earth who loves Episodes 1-3 of Star Wars and have been tentatively thinking about the idea of do a Queen Amidala cosplay but am so intimidated by the thought of it 🙈 I definitely want to do a simple Padme costume but the full Amidala get up would be quite the endeavor. Speaking of cosplay, I did an elf shoot this weekend and I CANNOT WAAAAIT to share some of the pictures with you! I’m thinking one of the pics will be perfect for an upcoming Middle-earth March prompt 😍 follow me on my cosplay account @laurendoescosplay for more!

Happy Saturday and day 16 of #MiddleEarthMarch !
I’m sort of sucking at posting for MEM this year (today’s prompt is Edoras/Horse Lords) but I had to get this up today to celebrate these two incredible artists.
Amazing news, @dcmarinoauthor is starting her very own shop and she’ll be selling these woodmark carousels!! When she sent me the pics with my bookmarks displayed, I could have died 😭 They’re so beautifully made and will be available with the option of wood backing or stained glass. Seriously check out her account for more pictures and be prepared to spend your money at Ink & Arrow 💛
About to post another flash giveaway for some Rohan bookmarks right now in my stories so be on the lookout!

Do I even need to mention the app-ocalypse yesterday? Or can we all just pretend that didn’t happen 🙈 We experienced a “bomb cyclone” blizzard yesterday so I thought it was just my phone/internet acting up, glad to see it was everyone else, too!
I love the green in this pic and it definitely makes me yearn for spring despite it being an icy hellscape outside.

“Don’t worry, you’re just as sane as I am.” ✨
Guys I’m finally feeling like a human today!! Getting wisdom teeth is um... unpleasant, to say the least. But I feel like I’m getting back in my groove; I packaged orders today, worked on a custom map, and even did a makeup test for a work in progress cosplay!
I’m ready to dive back into this community and give you all the attention you deserve 💛
My weekend was shit but how was yours? 😂

“And she took a white gem like a star that lay upon her breast hanging upon a silver chain, and she set the chain around Frodo's neck. 'When the memory of the fear and the darkness troubles you,' she said, 'this will bring you aid.” ✨
If you had to choose your favorite bookish couple of all time, who would it be?
Aragorn and Arwen are definitely up there on my list 💛
Quick PSA in case you missed it in my stories, I’ll be getting my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow afternoon so any orders placed after that will probably take an extra few days to get shipped out while I recover! If you order through today and tonight, I can still get them packaged up in the morning and in the mail. Thanks to everyone who has sent dentist well wishes! I’m not looking forward to tomorrow but definitely ready to get it over with 😅

Who else watched the Game of Thrones season 8 trailer today?!? Thoughts?
I’m absolutely shook. I’m simultaneously SO ready and not ready at all for the final season. We’re finishing our rewatch of season 7 tonight!

Don’t mind me as I join #MiddleEarthMarch four days late 😅 I’m loving everyone’s pics so far and absolutely adore being tagged in your photos with ITR products!
For anyone looking for MEM prompts, you can find them on the official @tolkientribe Instagram ⚔️
Today’s prompt is “adventurous Brandybucks” which I embraced fully by starting a cosplay account! Tbh, it’s really scary starting an account from nothing but I really want that space to document all of the stages of making a cosplay and the final photos without driving you guys crazy on this account 😂 I’ll still post bookish related cosplays here but please follow my new account if you’re interested in all of that: @laurendoescosplay .
Thank you for coming on this adventure with me!

February may be over but this bookmark isn’t leaving the shop!
This bookmark is from our Love collection and is inspired by The Name of the Wind.
What were some of your favorites this month? In any category!
I’m thinking about doing a February favorites and least favorites YouTube video, what do you think?

“For the ones who dream of stranger worlds.” ✨ •••
What stranger worlds are you dreaming of today? Could be a book you’re reading now or one you’re eager to dive into! ———————————————————
As some of you saw on my stories, I’m currently reading the Shadow and Bone trilogy and um... not quite liking it, to put it mildly. So although I’m powering through to get to King of Scars, I’m desperately dreaming of the Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson! After reading Mistborn, I’m so eager to read more of his books.
Hope you’re all having a good week so far!

“Stick ‘em with the pointy end.” 🗡
Guyyyysss we’re already two episodes into our season 7 rewatch and IM NOT READY to have to wait another two months for season 8 to come out.
We can really get to binging when it comes to Game of Thrones, some nights it’s just one episode, then we’ll hit a weekend and accidentally watch five in a row 😂
Are you rewatching in preparation for season 8? If so, do you have the patience to space out the episodes to time it perfectly, or are you a binge monster like me?
