The Maker

I’ve been a Maker as long as I remember. Long before it was a thing certainly. It all started when I was a young girl, building things with paper and tape and staples (and more tape and more staples to hear my grandmother tell it!). I made things out of Legos: cars, houses, and bowling alleys with ball returns. I probably should have become an architect, but that wasn’t to be. Fast forward to adulthood (I still find it hard to believe I’m in that category) and I find myself once again a maker, back to using paper – and lots of it – but no staples and very little tape.

Over 20 years ago I found my passion: bookbinding. I get the pleasure of designing and building things every day. It’s visual and tactile and requires a lot of patience and attention to detail. The added bonus? I get to work with the nicest people and make something that brings joy or comfort. Over the past 20 years I’ve made books marking births and deaths and everything in between.

I’m thankful for this opportunity to be a Maker. A piece of me goes into every book I create.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Every book is wrapped in kraft paper. Items marked as “gift” also come with baker’s twine. Please let me know if the item is a gift being sent directly to the recipient. I am happy to include your personal message.

Care instructions

Your book is sturdy and made to last, however it needs a little TLC to keep it in excellent condition.

~ Please avoid contact with liquids, including water, and excessive sunlight.
~ You may clean dust off book cloth by gently using blue painters' tape. Do not use tape to clean paper or leather!
~ Smudges can be removed from pages with a gummy art eraser.
~ Leather benefits from being held and used. The oils from your hands will help keep it in good shape.

How to adhere photographs in a scrapbook album ~
There are many safe possibilities including photo tabs, photo tape and photo corners. Look for terms like "acid-free," "archival" or "photo safe."

Why do I no longer offer "Free" Shipping on orders over $35?

Free Shipping was never really "free." The estimated cost of shipping was included in the price of my items. Etsy encourages sellers to offer free shipping by offering priority placement in search. I never felt good about this as I prefer to be totally transparent about pricing. I removed the shipping cost from my prices and now you will know exactly how much the item costs and how much it costs to deliver it to you.

What to do if you don’t receive your package.

Step 1: check with neighbors for misdelivery.

Step 2: go to local post office and request the gps coordinates of where the package was delivered. If it was delivered to the wrong address, the post office will attempt to retrieve it. If it was delivered correctly, then...

Step 3: File a police report for stolen mail as stealing mail is indeed a felony.

With a copy of the police report, I will refund or replace your purchase.

Custom orders

A custom order is classified as an item I don’t have in stock and make specially for you. This includes custom sizes, special leathers, stitching, etc.

Custom orders are subject to a 15% custom fee over list price to cover my design and consultation time.
