I have a love affair with all things patterned paper. It's been an ongoing obsession of mine for the last many years. So much so, that I have collected more patterned paper than a girl can handle.

In addition, I also have an obsession with beautifully hand crafted artisan journals. All the journals I use are always made by me. It just feels so much more special when it's handmade.

Using my awesome stash of beautiful acid-free patterned papers for hand crafted covers, and filling the pages with only the best quality papers (Fabriano Artistico 140lbs cold pressed), I have handcrafted artisan journals for you as well. I'm certain that you will love them as much as I do.

I can't wait and am very excited to share them with you. I am a strong supporter of the handmade revolution and frankly, there's nothing like owning something that someone has made with their own hands, who has spent time loving putting it together. I strive to make my journals unique, and no two are ever quite the same.

Please take note, my journals are beautifully designed products, but not perfect. If you want perfectly aligned edges, and perfectly sized paper, then these journals aren't for you. My journals are full of quirky goodness and that's what makes them so beautifully unique. Perfect in their imperfection.

Not to mention, the size makes them easy to carry around with you in your purse, and take out when the creative spark hits. Keep them for yourself, or gift them to a journal lover.
