About

Junk Journals and Curated Paper Collections for Artists, Artisans, Makers, and Crafters

This shop was started as a venue for selling my handmade books and junk journals to the world after I'd been doing commissioned projects for awhile. I wanted a 24-hour web presence so that when I met potential new clients, they could go and have a peek at my work whenever they liked.

But soon I came into a good supply of vintage books that couldn't be sold by the bookstores. A friend donated a couple of full boxes to my efforts and promised she'd have more soon. (She did.) Then another friend and then another started gifting me vintage books that were destined to go to waste. Within three months there were four people putting things aside for me on a regular basis. This was adding up to a lot of paper, though. I mean, way more than I could use myself!

And then I started meeting other people who were interested in my vintage papers for other reasons. I realized that it wasn't just scrapbook people and junk journal junkies who needed vintage papers. There were tons of ways to upcycle old paper. When I realized that there was a huge opportunity out there for these vintage papers to find new life, I started packaging my vintage papers into custom collections suited to a variety of uses for other makers and crafters.

I still make and sell my own junk journals. You can see some in this shop. But my business model has shifted to finding ways to make use of the vintage paper stocks I receive from friends and get it into the hands of others who will upcycle it into something wonderful.

I am still adding new listings every day. If you don't see something you want, please start a conversation with me. I have many more things available that I haven't had time to list yet. And I'll be happy to put together a custom order for you, or maybe even add a new standard listing if it's something that others would find useful as well.

I ship daily and attend quickly to orders, which is why I can promise a 24-hour (1 business day) turnaround time on most of my items. For made-to-order items and custom jobs, please allow 1-2 business days.
