About

memory books for babies, kids & adults

"The two most important days in your life are
the day you are born and
the day you find out why."
-- Mark Twain

There was once a bald baby girl. Her mother carefully recorded & photographed her baby’s first precious moments. The mother wrote in her own handwriting about her baby shower & baby's first words. She saved special cards & the hospital bracelets. She sat with her daughter & together they traced bald baby girl’s hand as the years went by.
Many…many years later when the bald baby girl was about to have her own baby she wanted to find a baby book that her child would treasure. She hunted & searched, but nothing was perfect.
So she researched, interviewed, & inspected. She fused her love of paper, pattern & fabric & created a baby book for her own baby.

At the end of the day I am a storyteller and a memory keeper. Helping people tell their stories is the perfect blend of two things I am so passionate about. The day of your wedding, a summer trip, an annual interview for your child, the first year of your baby's life...I am always thinking of ways to record those sweet fleeting moments in unique and meaningful ways.

Blinkblots is a line of memory books designed by me, Lichen Frank. Baby books are journal/scrapbooks where you record and save the precious memories from beginning, birth to toddlerhood. 20 Question Books are smaller books asking 20 questions each year from 3 years old to 10 years old, with pages in between for photos. I also have blank or lined books for journals and guest books. as well as a travel sketchbook with a strap.
