Loving the Earth in my small way

I suppose my story begins with loving the Earth - hence my shop name. A few years ago I was making jewellery out of semi-precious stones, wood and seaglass. I made mala necklaces and full malas too. I still make jewellery but... well

... us creative types are always moving on and exploring new things... and so my current infatuation is with altered books. I love finding an old unwanted book and turning it into something funky, fun and - useful! So I deconstruct books and then reconstruct them with pages for journalling (another passion of mine). There are only so many journals a girl can have at one time, so now I am selling them. I've made them as if they were for me - with great love and attention, adding the kinds of things that would inspire me and kindle creativity.

I'm also listing packs of vintage paper ephemera for those who like scrapbooking and art journalling. Plus the occasional vintage book or magazine that I think should really go to someone who will love it.

You will also see a book about mantras listed here - this is a book I have written myself, complete with my own full-colour photographs. You can see more of this on my website www.beautifulskybooks.com or on Instagram @beautifulskybooks

If you drop by - do say hi !!

    I make all kinds of things - in particular I like to upcycle as it is a way of saving the Earth's resources. I create altered book journals, jewellery and have written a book about mantra meditation with full-colour photography.

Returns and exchange details
The most important thing is communication - let me know what is wrong as soon as possible so that I can put it right. Remember the items are secondhand and so have a 'used' appearance.
Payment
Paypal please.
Shipping
I offer free shipping on items over $35. Whe I do charge shipping I don't aim to make money from it - and may post in re-used envelopes. I try to make the best estimate I can. Sometimes that cost comes out a bit less than I charged and sometimes I end up paying more. Vintage papers are sent in a zip-lock bag and in a board-backed envelope. I write 'Please do not bend' on the envelope - but I cannot be held responsible if your postie decides to bend it. Concerning local taxes and customs - that will be your responsibility. I cannot estimate these and so there could be a cost that you will need to cover. (Free shipping does not include any local taxes you might incur in your country).
Additional policies and FAQs
I guarantee that the papers are genuinely vintage. I also guarantee that any upcylced item has been made by me.
