Llegó manchado de pluma por enfrente y por atrás. Le avisé a La vendedora pero no he tenido respuesta.

From the Forest

My name is Alyssia and I am the owner and creater here at Forest Nine. I have been a creator my entire life, it began in the forest as a child. During camping trips I would pass the time foraging through the trees, finding bits and pieces of twigs, leaves and moss which I would use to create collages, and tiny rafts to send down the river. The forest has continued to be an endless source of inspiration to me. Nature is instilled into all of my work, through the natural linen thread which has been coated with pure beeswax, genuine leather, quartz crystals and solid wood. I have always kept a journal with me to document my daily activities, memories, dreams and goals. I decided I wanted to create a special journal for myself about 4 years ago. I made it from scrap wood my father found for me and salvaged thread. It was adorned with burnings of trees and stars. It was crooked and delicate, but I loved it. I loved the process so much it quickly became an addiction. I had journals piling up, more than I would ever fill, so I decided it was time to share! Over the past few years I have refined my journals, using only the best materials and techniques. These journals are made tough, to be carried with you on all of your adventures. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a bit, I hope to create something beautiful for you!
