There are no words to express how beautiful and functional this journal is. Absolutely stunning!

This is a beautiful piece of art on its own, but when family recipes are hand-written in this it will be a treasure! Thank you, Megan!

Beautiful. Great quality. I believe in penmanship and old fashioned record keeping ! I’m gathering addresses for wedding invites so this was perfect

Beautiful leather cover although I didn’t realize how small this journal was until I received it. Totally my fault for not reading what size it was but you would have to write really small to adequately use this wine journal.

Beautiful quality, like nothing I've seen before. Tabs are sturdy and will hold up well. Overall size is a little smaller than I expected. I may not use it myself but would be very proud to give as a gift! Thank you!

I use reclaimed, job-lot leather in the creation of my journals. Most of it is chrome tanned leather which requires no maintenance or upkeep. Some of the more rugged leather I use is oil-tanned and will distress and patina with use, but do not require any additional oil or conditioner. If you have specific question about the piece you are interested in, please get in touch with me.
