Announcement    Hi everyone! CM here. ๐ŸŽƒ Happy Halloween!!
Good News. A long overdue shop update is, um, FINALLY happening..! ๐Ÿฅณ

It's been a while. Like, more than a while.
I promise you, I have never stopped making Art Journals, and I'm still filling up pages in my own art journal, too. I've been doing holiday shows as well as selling journals at local shops here in Lansing, Michigan.

I knew it had been quite a long time since I'd taken photos and written listings for my Etsy shop... but my jaw may or may not have hit my desk when I realized the last time I wrote a listing for the shop was in 2016!!!

(If you are a visual person, I ask you to please pause here to imagine a short montage of our heroine, the quirky blue-haired maker: hands on hips, lovingly surveying the surroundings of a long neglected, yet somehow overstocked antique store. Brow furrowed, she nods and stares into space, before dutifully opening long-neglected shutters and beginning to clear away years of accumulated dust and cobwebs. Sunlight streams through old windows in majestic beams of miraculous color and, taken by this beautiful scene our intrepid maker begins to cough due to the amount of dust in the air โ€” panics upon seeing a large spider, (ostensibly angered by its recent sudden eviction,) then accidentally stepping into an unattended open can of paint, because this is apparently a screwball comedy. (Life is a screwball comedy.)

oops. I may have gotten lost in metaphor. ๐Ÿงญ ...again.

OK, I may not be LITERALLY re-opening a dusty shop, but there sure is a lot of work to be done! As we head into the holiday gift-giving season, I'm eager to do a head-to-toe refresh. I've got a few new products to introduce, since I was last active, and I also want to dedicate some time to updating and fine-tuning listings for some old favorites that are still in production.

Speaking of being inactive... I've kept the store open with mostly digital products over the last couple of years. Unfortunately, I've had a couple orders for mail order items slip through the cracks in the last year, which affected my previously 5-star rating. Everyone was refunded, but because I was slow to respond, it (understandably) lead to poor reviews. Nothing to do but grin, bear it and move on. I will be reaching out to the folks who left less than stellar reviews to see if I can make it right, but I also think it's important to acknowledge my mistakes! Taking good care of customers is at the center of every successful business, no matter how big or small!

...all right, who wants free balloons and hot dogs..? ๐ŸŒญ๐ŸŽˆ


in all seriousness, thanks so much for your continued support!

I make Recycled Art Journals, eclectic one-of-a-kind art supplies and other unique gifts from reclaimed vintage books and paper ephemera. Iโ€™ve been making and selling Art Journals since 2007 and over the years, Iโ€™ve developed a pretty amazing stash of vintage books, illustrations and paper ephemera. A big part of what I do is making a concerted effort to use as much of each book as possible. Each book I use gets reimagined as multiple Art Journals, Paper Packs, Journal Kits, Magnets and more. I think thereโ€™s something kind of magical about that!!

I source a mix of vintage and modern books, utilizing a strict โ€œI Know It When I See Itโ€ policy. The books I use come from library sales, thrift stores, garage & estate sales, as well as private donations. The majority of the books I use are discarded library and school books, ranging from the 1940โ€™s - the 1970โ€™s. I have a deep love for and a life-long connection to books & libraries. I set out to repurpose books that have already been well-loved and are unfit for collectors.
