Here at Distinctly You Designs, we strive to make use of only books and household items that were no longer going to be used. Rather than just throwing them away, we turn them into beautiful journals and home decor. This serves two purposes. Both of us help save a small piece of the environment and you get an amazing journal or home decor item to love and enjoy.

Have a great time in our shop and please let us know if we may be of any assistance!!
Love to you and yours!

Frequently asked questions
How long will it take to receive my order?

Custom and personalized orders

I do accept custom orders.For custom orders there is a 50% non-refundable deposit.

However, I will handle that on a case by case basis.

Please remember**********All items are handcrafted so no piece will be exactly the same as another, even if it has the same design on it.********

What makes Distinctly You Designs journals and notebooks better than any other journal?

PLEASE keep in mind when purchasing one of our journals or notebooks—They ARE NOT meant to look like a brand new”store bought” journal or notebook. They ARE meant to have all the character and charm of a beautifully repurposed piece of art perfect for all your journaling needs, wants and Gift giving desires. When you purchase one of our amazing journals you are doing your part in saving the environment as well. All the journals are made from hand altered books. Instead of a perfectly good book ending up in a landfill, it is given a second life in all its glory as one of our stunning journals!

Why will I be able to see some of the print from the pages?

I do not add new paper to the books. Instead, I cover the type with a secret something to give you a”blank” page and thus repurpose the book. Due to this, you are able to see the original text to a certain degree. However, it is no different than writing on a faintly patterned stationary.

Why are the edges wavy/warped looking?

Due to the process involved to cover the text on the pages, they tend to dry in a slightly warped/wavy way and do not lay completely flat. Again this is the way they are intended to look.

Why is there a little wrinkling on the cover of my notebook/mini journal?

The covers to all the notebooks and mini journals were modified so I could paint on them. Due to this, they may have some wrinkling in spots where the paper didn’t dry completely flat. Again this is the way they are intended to look.

What makes an altered notebook different from an altered book journal?

Composition/notebooks do not come with the colored pages and pockets found in the standard sized journals we offer. Instead, they are filled with ruled pages.

Why is the design on my item a little different than the design shown online?

All the items we offer are hand painted. Even if we painted the exact same design on 10 of them at the same time, they would all still be slightly different from one another. The only way to make an exact replica of something is to have it machine made. We pride ourselves on the fact that we offer only handcrafted items.
