Extraordinary work and craftsmanship....I cried when I looked through the customized pages of this beautiful bridal journal for my step-daughter, Sarah. Thank you so very much!
Starting A New Career At Age 63 Is Fun
Journaling Making started with Mary Ann Moss's "Remains of the Day" class. Making one journal was all I needed to realize I love making journals. One journal lead to two and a discovery that I have a paper issue.
Most of the journals I make are custom orders and that allows me lots of freedom with creating the perfect journal for my clients. The types of journals I create are Travel, Baby, Bridal, Garden, Sewing, Cooking, and of course, Personal. I ask lots of questions about colors, favorite places, whether the person likes traditional, vintage, boho, contemporary or maybe a combination of a couple of styles.
All my journals start with the fabric cover, done in the favorite colors of the owner. There are 50-70 pages in each journal and the journal measure approximately 9" X 6". They all contain gorgeous wallpapers, vintage ads, artwork from books, ribbon, images from magazines, old and new, vintage lace, buttons, postcards and art ephemera.
I spend lots of time making notes before I even start a journal. Next, I start collecting all the bits and pieces necessary to create the pages. I want the owner to open their journal and be amazed at what each page contains.
Thanks for reading my story. I hope you will consider my work as your best choice for a journal.
