Request a custom order and have something made just for you.
A made-to-order 8.5 x 11 inches (not counting the spiral binding, which adds .75 inches to the width). Each journal is different and very slightly imperfect, since I am cutting all of the pages by hand, punching the holes, and doing the binding, all in my studio.

PLEASE NOTE: Each journal is made-to-order at the time of purchase. As such, please allow up to 7 business days for your journal to be made and shipped to you. I am often able to finish them much sooner, but just in case, please allow the extra time if you are planning on the journal as a gift.

Shipping is currently set for a medium flat-rate box -- I may be able to ship the journal in a regional flat rate box to save you a little money, depending on where in the country you are located. I'm based in Pennsylvania, so the closer you are to me, the less expensive the regional shipping would be.

Since this is a custom journal, please let me know if you have specific requests & I'll do my best to meet them!

Each journal has approximately 50 inclusions, which means about 100 pages, if you are working on the front and back of each page. (This does not include the front and back covers.)

Although every journal varies,
some inclusions are:

A blank heavyweight kraft chipboard cover (.030" thick), front and back
A small vintage envelope in the front of the journal for holding teeny ephemera
A handmade two-sided pocket in the back of the journal for holding larger ephemera
2 manilla inventory tags
1 vintage photograph (between 1912 - 1965)
3 - 5 vintage book pages -- these are from a few different books: The Strange Career of Marihuana (1950s), Modern English Usage (1950s), French-English dictionary (1971), & Sheet Music from the opera Carmen (unknown) (you might not get pages from all of these.)
3 - 5 pages of cold-press watercolor paper
2 - 3 pink "While You Were Away" vintage phone message paper
1 - 2 vintage library cards
1 bright yellow caution tag
5 patterned cardstock pages
1 chipboard file organizer tab
1 cardstock recipe divider tab
1 page vintage yearbook (1950s, Iowa State)
1 - 2 pieces of graph paper
1 divider handmade from a file folder
5 pieces of cardstock, white or kraft
8 - 10 pieces of pretty patterned paper, one-sided, some vintage

The fourth picture shows pages from one of the smaller sized journals -- while your journal will vary, the picture is representative of the type of pages you'll see in the journal that you receive.

These journals are lots of fun! If you check out the last picture, you'll see the decorated front cover of my own journal (a left-handed version). These journals are great for art journal techniques and scrapbooking techniques. You can easily add in photographs using pretty washi tapes or doodle with your favorite pens.
