This was a gift for my Harry Potter loving niece, and I knew that it had to be made by Misty. I special ordered it and could not wait to see it. I am a repeat customer!! About the journal... She did a beautiful job, handcrafting all sorts of journaling spaces and hidden envelopes with hidden notes and other treasures. My neice spent hours (literally!!) ignoring her other unopened Christmas presents to take these pages in. Who does that?!?!?! She was utterly speechless and in love. If you need a special gift for someone, order here. You will be very happy. These are top quality and worth every penny.

I can't express enough how amazing this journal is. It is completely personalized, it is intricate and it is just amazing. Misty went above and beyond! I am so thrilled and in awe of how it turned out!

When I was a little girl, I loved paper. Anything to do with paper captivated me. Whether it be folding it, sewing it, transforming it- I think paper was my first love in many ways. I remember sewing pages together, thinking I was the first person who'd ever thought to do that. I wasn't- but it happened so naturally for me that it was a beautiful experience.

Growing up, I never lost my love of papers. I took up drawing, painting, & dabbled in sculpture- But I always came back to paper. I started making my own papers. I made my first book. It was Love at First Sight. I MADE a book. A real book, with pages, and a cover, and I was so mesmerized by it. It was simple, it was minimal- but it was a book. I was hooked. I could combine all of my artistic loves (especially paper) into a concise package. A book.

Over the years I found that fabric was a beautiful alternative for covers. Much sturdier than papers. I found that fabric pages, pockets- were just as beautiful as my papers. I never abandoned my obsession with papers though.

Each book I make, I make with my heart & my head. I match things for each specific piece. My customers stories & desires inspire me to create something perfect for only them. The stock books I make are based on my own inspirations. Ideas that come to me as I finger through my paper collection. Ideas that speak to me, and are created through my little hands.

I am very proud of each book, card, painting that I make. It is all an extension of me.

Thank you for reading about my artistic journey. I hope you have enjoyed hearing where I have come from, & where I am now.
