Once Upon a Time, Again / Now It’s YOUR Tale

When others received a sucker after going to the pediatrician, I got to pick out a new Little Golden Book. That was the good part about being sick – that and hugging my stuffed Mickey Mouse for comfort.

In 2011, I started combining two of my favorite things, Disney and Golden Books, into the ultimate creative product: Unofficial Disney Autograph Books. Once Upon a Time, Again was born.

My books are lovingly put together with color and design in mind, meshing Golden Book character pages with scrapbook paper and envelopes to achieve a one of a kind Autograph Book just for you! White cardstock pages are located in between each character for signatures and displaying character photos! You choose the characters, and I do the rest! You won’t find these anywhere else on the internet. If you do, they’re not a Once Upon a Time, Again original.

I also create Golden Book Journals which contain the entire original story, matching scrapbook paper and 50-60 white sheets of blank paper for writing or doodling.

My books are also eco friendly. I try to use used and vintage books whenever possible as well as use recycled paper.
