Next, is a book tin designed by Stella Bookish Art. It was inspired by the Cruel Prince. On the front it says “I like for things to happen.. stories to unfolding if I can’t find a good enough story, I make one”, one the inside of the tin it says “sharpen your blade. Harden your heart” and on the back it says “I am a mere mortal and you are a prince of faerie. You have much more to lose and I have nothing.” This tin is absolutely gorgeous and I love the quotes on it. 

We also get a mini print in this month’s box. This quote is from Before she Ignites. The quote says “I wanted freedom in the same way I wanted my next breath: an unspoken but constant desire” This will absolutely be going on my print wall.
