Handbound Journals for the Gardener in your life
Spring Sale!
I'm in need of a lot of supplies for the upcoming season, so I've moved a lot of Journals into the "on sale" section of my shop and temporarily lowered prices on many other items.
Check it out and happy Spring...

About

Sketchbooks & Journals for artists, writers, and low-tech creativity...anyplace, anytime, no recharging necessary.

Since 2011 I have been manifesting my true happiness, which is working full-time as an artist and bookbinder. I began with making my own sketchbooks...then it snowballed into something much larger.

Journals are portable, electricity-free places to hold and record observation and inspiration and feel like a helpful thing to contribute to this mad world. I now help 3 local libraries by 'upcycling' the antique/vintage hardcovers that they are unable to sell or give away anyplace else, saving dump fees and more waste (Public Libraries are not rolling in money, either).

Personally, I live on a quiet country road, on a tiny island near the Canadian border. My home is a pimped-out school bus with wood heat and no plumbing...an original 'tiny house'. I lived for years without power but now have both a small amount of 'grid' power as well as 12-volt solar.
As a highly sensitive person I need to be surrounded by visual beauty and calm, and so I am.

I've never been more content! My customers give me some of my best design ideas and push my skill level ever higher. I won't be doing this forever, so I'm just trying to enjoy it.
I am filled with gratitude each day that this experiment and 'life as art project' keeps working out.

    I live in a cozy, converted schoolbus in the "hundred-acre woods" on Lopez Island, in the amazing San Juan Archipelago. I stitch books, draw cartoons, play in my garden and in boats.
