Bookbinding & Art Made With Love in the Skagit Valley

La Conner, Washington 1378 Sales On Etsy since 2009

5 out of 5 stars
(506)

Announcement   Now in my 9th excellent year on Etsy, I'm still proud to say that each unique item in this shop is hand-crafted with high-quality materials and tons of love!
My prices reflect the high-quality art papers and materials I use inside each sketchbook, journal or album.

Everything in my shop is made by me, in my humble studio in a Victorian house in La Conner, Washington. This is a working bookbinding studio, a classroom space and a grass-roots, brick and mortar shop "Book, Paper & Ink Arts."
Please come by and say hello if you are in the Skagit Valley!

Making things by hand is slow and my inventory is for sale in many places, so please don't hesitate to ask me to hold something for you!
If it suddenly disappears from Etsy, I sold it in person. Sorry!
No duplicates are made here.

Yes, I am interested in bulk or wholesale orders. Contact me to work something out.

Additionally, as I work out shipping costs for combinations of various items, please know I will refund any over-payment as soon as possible. If something seems off, contact me! I treat my customers very well.
That's it.
Cheers! Brenna Jael

Spring Sale!
I'm in need of a lot of supplies for the upcoming season, so I've moved a lot of Journals into the "on sale" section of my shop and temporarily lowered prices on many other items.
Check it out and happy Spring...

About

Sketchbooks & Journals for artists, writers, and low-tech creativity...anyplace, anytime, no recharging necessary

When I started my Etsy shop in 2009, Etsy wasn't quite as well known as it is now.
I didn't even make journals yet, I just had some crocheted hats and stuff.
I didn't start making significant sales until about 2012 (So stick with it, if you are just starting out!). I lived on a small, isolated island and being able to share my art worldwide and make a little extra money was an amazing gift.
Wow, I have learned a lot and even started a brick-and-mortar shop and book-arts center since then! I moved off the Island to a nearby art-centric town, La Conner, WA.
I'm about 7 years into making journals and I'm still obsessed. I love to use the random books and maps that libraries are throwing out. I love the feedback and ideas I get from my customers.
Overall, I'm full of gratitude, and excited to see what happens next!
