About

Bookbinding Dreamer

After much preparing & thinking & hard work, I just started my shop, at the beginning of June, 2012. I am so excited to be here!

I have a ton of crafty interests, but never thought of myself as an "artist" since my drawing & painting abilities are null. But, I have discovered that my "crafts" ARE "art" & this brings me great joy!

I have always had a love of books. My first "bookbinding" experiences were as a child, putting together pieces of paper into books with staples, tape, or ribbon & writing stories & drawing pictures in them. We had a whole stack of these books on our bookshelf. Making books kind of fell off my radar for a while when I was a teenager & in college, but post-college I got back into it, and started crushing on that feel & smell of paper again.

I love the blank books I make! Hours can pass as I'm working on my books & it feels like minutes. I love that the creation of handbound books involves so many steps & skills. Not only do I get to work with paper, but I also get to hand-sew all of my books together. It is the combination of these skills that creates beautiful books!

We live in a highly digitized age, but I believe writing & reading from paper should not be lost. There's so much history with the process of writing information & memories down on paper! I feel a greater connection to words, drawings & photos that I can feel, smell, and touch than I do those I can only see & click on a screen. Do you feel this way too? If you do, maybe you'll like what I have to offer :)

Have any questions? Please feel free to contact me! I would love to do a custom order for you!

    I'm pretty new to this world of selling my handmade things, but I've been creating my whole life. I've done all kinds of crafts in the past, from basket-weaving to mask making to furniture building, but I now focus my efforts on books.

Thank you so much for considering purchasing from my shop! Please be sure to read ALL of the below policies before purchase. If you have any questions, please ask!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I happily accept PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to use it, you can pay by credit or debit card page where it asks you to sign in. Payments must be made at the time of purchase to be considered final by Etsy.

Michigan state residents will be charged a 6% sales tax on their purchase.
Shipping
Please make sure you check your shipping address when you check out. If your personal address is not where you would like the item to be shipped, please let me know in the notes to seller section where you would like me to ship. If you'd like to send a message to the recipient or have the item gift wrapped, please let me know either in the note to seller or send me a convo. I am happy to do so.

I usually ship my books out USPS first class mail. If you would like to upgrade your shipping please let me know before you purchase your item, and I will make you your own listing with updated shipping. Also let me know if you'd like to receive a tracking number, as I will only obtain one if requested.

I do send them priority if two or more books are purchased at once.

If a US shipped item has not arrived within 20 days of purchase, please notify me & I can offer a refund or replacement.

International orders will be shipped via USPS First Class International. Please convo me promptly if you would like a different shipping method on your international order.

As a seller I am not responsible for any fees your country may charge for you to receive the package. Please be aware that some countries charge customs fees.

If an item has been delayed in arrival, please let me know! No refunds or replacements will be made until 6 weeks of nondelivery from date of shipment has passed. This is because it can take up to six weeks for international orders to arrive at their destination due to customs & regulations.

I am happy to accept returns on listed items not found satisfactory. Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer, and neither shipping to or from the buyer will be refunded. Money for returns will be refunded within 7 days of my receipt of the returned item.
