About

Hello there!

Welcome to my Etsy home. Thank you for stopping by!
Have a look around and convo me if you have any questions or comments.

My name is Ana and I live in Lisbon, Portugal, where I run a small hand bookbinding business.

I've always loved notebooks, journals, stationery and any other kind of paper related craft and am very happy to finally be doing something I love. :)

I come from a family where creativity was always very important, where handmade was valued, where D.I.Y. was encouraged.

I learned various hand crafts from my family but as I had a thirst for knowledge and particularly in traditional crafts, I started to seek any snippet of information that would allow me to try something new…

I come from a family where creativity was always very important, where handmade was valued, where D.I.Y. was encouraged.

I learned various hand crafts from my family but as I had a thirst for knowledge and particularly in traditional crafts, I started to seek any snippet of information that would allow me to try something new.

I first learned bookbinding, in a very basic form, when I was around 11 years old, at school in my crafts class, and I was hooked! :)

I have always, in one way or another, made notebooks and photo albums, but until about 11 years ago, I never even thought of making it my job. Then I was in between jobs and was looking to work in something more satisfying. I learned then most of the skills that I use now. But although my family and friends were very supportive, I didn't have the drive, then, to take a chance and change.

I have it now, so, welcome to my new adventure!

I try mostly to use recycled paper, linen and old fabrics, that my mother and aunts give me, they were all seamstresses at one point in their lives and have many small pieces of fabric left.

I'm a proud member of the PTteam - The Portuguese Sellers Team and its current captain. Come and join us if you're a Portuguese seller or a seller living in Portugal!
We will welcome you! :)

Come and join me!
Ana
