Get Up Offa That Slump: A Blogging Extravaganza - Puppies + Books

Hello, all! Welcome to DAY  SEVEN of Get Up Offa That Slump: A Blogging Extravaganza! (There's only one week left!) This extravaganza is a three-week long partay consisting of blog posts that will hopefully do a number of things: get you back into blogging and remind you how fun and creative blogging can be. To learn more about this shindig (all the cool kids are doing it, just an FYI), you can check out the introduction post here and join in anytime!

Now, for today's festivities:

Here's the prompt: March 23 is NATIONAL PUPPY DAY. People are constantly pairing books with things, like outfits and celebrities. But now we're going to pair books/book covers with their matching puppies because PUPPIES.

OR, you maybe you want to Pitch a Book: You really, really liked or loved a book but like no one's reading it and that makes you a sad panda. So pitch the hell out of that book to us. Use whatever mediums and supplies and bribes you want, cover all the best points of the book, and get people to desperately want--no, need--to read it. In a sense, this is like a review. But it's not your typical format and it's a chance to refresh something that seems to be in such a set outline across the board.

I'm horrible at pairing things like this and I NEVER understand the celebrity and book pairings, BUT, here's my attempt at matching books with puppies.

(Really, I just looked up "puppy photography" and tried to find pictures that reminded me of book covers, but let me tell you, MOST ADORABLE RESEARCH EVER.)

Are you pitching a book today? Or rolling around in all the puppy cuteness? Also: how's the extravaganza going for you so far?


  1. This is the greatest thing ever.

  2. I love it! These matches are perfect!

  3. This is so awesome! I wasn't sure exactly how to do it before reading/seeing all your cute pictures. Now I'm excited to create my own! And the extravaganza has been so fun! Thanks for hosting! We should do this more regularly!

  4. They're all so cute and they really do match those covers perfectly. :)

  5. These are all flawless but never over the baby covered in puppies. NEVER.

  6. Oh! This is so cool! I didn't feel creative enough to do this prompt so I pitched a book! But I loooove how all of your puppy pictures go so perfectly with the book covers! This post is just too cute!!

  7. You did a fabulous job matching up the covers to the dog photographs! You have a stellar eye for design. I loved this. Gosh. This should be a monthly feature with animals. I would certainly do it. :)
