Making my Journals Available From the Desert Outback

It seemed I would never be able to make my work available to the general public without a lot of driving since I lives miles from an actual paved road. Or shipping things to galleries and having to keep several record books for each one. Then along came Etsy, and I was saved. I could put everything into a little virtual shop and make it available worldwide!!
That was in 2005 and I have enjoyed this experience ever since. My items have changed as I have learned new techniques and found new passions to express my artistic inspirations. But the shop has always been my open door to the world.

    I am a professional artist who loves all kinds of paper and hand bound books. I love making unique journals and stuff to put in them.

Holiday Shopping Gift Guide:

For Adult Men and Women: Think about the persons likes and dislikes. Some of the recycled journals have a theme in the title and that can help.
Lots of men like to have notebooks, and a place for post its that is fairly obscure. Taking notes is kind of like asking for directions for some men, this will keep their secret.
The Palm Books are great for stocking stuffers, so are the cards.
The journals can also be part of a gift basket or box, with a nice pen, and a few rubber stamps and an ink pad.
The trunks can be filled with wonderful stationery items and would make a spectacular gift for a writer, poet, or gracious correspondent.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Money Order
  • Other Method
Right now I am only accepting Pay Pal because it is secure and instant. For trades just click on other or check, and convo me with your proposal.
Lay Away: I will put your name on the item, and change the price to 1/4, and relist after each payment. Because of this there will be no changes and no refunds.
Frequent Shopper Bonuses:
for every 10 items you buy you will recieve $25.00 to redeem in this shop. You can build this or spend it right away. Look to the bottom section for your status.
I ship once a week on Fridays, because the nearest PO is 13 miles away. For custom orders please allow 2-3 weeks for me to create the order before shipping. If you have a deadline please let me know before hand.
"INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. THIS IS ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR UK BUYERS! The Royal Mail is reportedly being much more vigilant in collecting VAT on purchases made through the mail. You should be prepared for the possibility of paying VAT plus a Royal Mail fee upon receipt."
Refunds and Exchanges
Because my work is original and pretty much one of a kind, I think that refunds would only be done if the item arrived damaged due to postal mishandling. I can repair items, with additional charge and reship fee.
Additional policies and FAQs
Wholesale inquiries are welcome. Because I make everything myself large orders will take time, please give several weeks lead time for these. I will also do custom orders for wholesale. Prices will be smaller depending on the quantity of the wholesale order. Wholesale discounts must include at least 20 items and a copy of sellers permit to qualify.
