    The guest book I ordered is so delicate and unique! I encourage anyone who wants to think outside of the box for a beautiful guest book, to shop Purpleskirt! You will not be disappointed!

    BethAnne exceeded expectations with this book. She accepted my alchemy request and was able to adapt and deliver all the elements I had in my head and make them into a great product. I can't wait to add our anniversary memories to this book year after year, and I'm confident that her handiwork has produced a book that can survive that kind of shelf life!

It all started with folding paper, one cold winter day.

I discovered a love for making books during a short winter course at the University of Delaware. Once I learned how to stitch and fold, I could not stop. Now, I enjoy making books of various sizes for all of life's celebrations.
