Very well made, from front to back. The lotus is absolutely amazing. I'm sure my mum will be happy with her gift. Loving the high quality of the paper and the handy size too. Will definitely come again!

I bought from Alison before. As always, this one is beautifully made. I adore the colours and pattern of the fabric cover. Open flat is a great idea too. Just makes me want to buy more!

Circle shibori journal. I do love circles. They carry many layers of meanings and to me, meditative. It represents wholeness, completeness, centering and so much more.
The beginning of crafting upcycled little book of love. Cute little book for keeping heart whispers.
Aged paper effect (dyed with coffee) fills this soft faux leather vegan journal. Makes lovely gift for loved ones this Christmas or keep it for yourself :)

About

Our stories matter

I started writing journals when I was a teenager, and have been writing since. My journals are my best friends, they have seen me through many rough patches and also good fun times. It is healing to write, and it is also empowering. I wrote many broken hearted events in my journals and I have had amazing dreams come true while pouring my hopes, dreams and wishes in the pages as well. The power of words is immense and life changing.

There is something about writing, the feeling of pen on paper, the motions, the quietening of the mind and being one with the heart that is just so healing, empowering and powerful.

It was my love for journaling that led me to start making my own books to write in. Now I make these carefully crafted and handbound journals for others to enjoy. I believe that journaling improves our well being, helps us re-discover our authentic selves and be the person we are meant to be, crafting dreams and living them. The journals or dairies some would call them that I make are infused with 'metta', which is love and kind wishes that are sent out to the receivers of the books. I take great care in making each journal, my wish is that may the writers find joy and comfort as they write in the blank pages and create beautiful stories of their lives.

You can find me in person at Titirangi Village Market, Auckland every last Sunday of the month where I sell my books.
