Restoring old books. Saving them from the trash. Repurposing them into beautiful productive journals.

ABOUT ME:
I'm a College educated Watercolor Artist working professionally and I love books, so naturally I combined both. I get to create journals that I would love to keep for myself. I always hate parting with them, but I know they are going to a good home...yours.

THE CHARM OF REPURPOSED BOOKS::
I love books. I cannot believe anyone would toss them in the trash. But they do. And I find them, bring them home and give them a new life.

After rescuing the book from the trash bin, I don't just hack off the covers, I take great care to restore them and finish edges off professionally. I want them to look the very best they can for their age. I use only wire, not plastic to bind them. These are sturdy journals, well crafted and worth more than my crazy low price.

NOTE: Special orders are not special priced, especially for my left handed customers.

I remember shopping with Mom in a department store, and they'd always wrap our purchases, well I have adopted that system. When you purchase a journal from me, I gift-wrap every one because I want you to be excited when you open it. I want it to sparkle.
My customers are the best! Thank you all for purchasing my journals. I wish you all a long and satisfying life.
