The Maker

I’ve been a Maker as long as I remember. Long before it was a thing certainly. It all started when I was a young girl, building things with paper and tape and staples (and more tape and more staples to hear my grandmother tell it!). I made things out of Legos: cars, houses, and bowling alleys with ball returns. I probably should have become an architect, but that wasn’t to be. Fast forward to adulthood (I still find it hard to believe I’m in that category) and I find myself once again a maker, back to using paper – and lots of it – but no staples and very little tape.

Over 20 years ago I found my passion: bookbinding. I get the pleasure of designing and building things every day. It’s visual and tactile and requires a lot of patience and attention to detail. The added bonus? I get to work with the nicest people and make something that brings joy or comfort. Over the past 20 years I’ve made books marking births and deaths and everything in between.

I’m thankful for this opportunity to be a Maker. A piece of me goes into every book I create.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I love making the perfect book for you! Please look for the "Design Your Own" listings under Custom Albums. You will be able choose your own cover design, album size, personalization, etc. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have questions.

Full custom design work where I assist in design and finding optional cover materials is available for an additional fee. Please note that I often spend more time designing and corresponding than actually making the album.

Custom orders are produced on a first-ordered, first-made basis. If you need a rush order, please ask me first as rush orders are not always possible. The fee for a rush order is 15% of the product total. This is in addition to any express mail fee.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Every book is wrapped in kraft paper. Items marked as “gift” also come with baker’s twine. Please let me know if the item is a gift being sent directly to the recipient. I am happy to include your personal message.

Care instructions

Your book is sturdy and made to last, however it needs a little TLC to keep it in excellent condition.

~ Please avoid contact with liquids, including water, and excessive sunlight.
~ You may clean dust off book cloth by gently using blue painters' tape. Do not use tape to clean paper or leather!
~ Smudges can be removed from pages with a gummy art eraser.
~ Leather benefits from being held and used. The oils from your hands will help keep it in good shape.

How to adhere photographs in a scrapbook album ~
There are many safe possibilities including photo tabs, photo tape and photo corners. Look for terms like "acid-free," "archival" or "photo safe."

Processing Times

In stock items are generally shipped the next business day. However, there are always exceptions - I guarantee your purchase will be shipped within two business days.

Made to order or custom work generally takes two to three weeks to complete. You will receive a tentative ship date within a couple days of placing your order.

RUSH ORDERS are sometimes available. If you have a tight deadline, please ask. A 15% fee will be added to all rush orders.

Proofs for Personalized Albums

You will receive a name card proof within two business days when you order a personalized album. Your album cannot be started until the proof has been approved. An extended delay in approving the proof may result in delayed production.

Please note: 3 proofs are included with your purchase (meaning you may make changes two times after your initial proof). Each proof beyond 3 will incur an additional $5 charge. No proofs will done without a completed order.

Why do I no longer offer "Free" Shipping on orders over $35?

Free Shipping was never really "free." The estimated cost of shipping was included in the price of my items. Etsy encourages sellers to offer free shipping by offering priority placement in search. I never felt good about this as I prefer to be totally transparent about pricing. I removed the shipping cost from my prices and now you will know exactly how much the item costs and how much it costs to deliver it to you.

****Shipping Times****

While I estimate shipping times I don’t guarantee them. Especially during this year of Covid, I have no control over USPS with their staffing shortages and excess package volume. I ask for your patience and understanding. No refunds will be offered on “late” packages.

What to do if you don’t receive your package.

Step 1: check with neighbors for misdelivery.

Step 2: go to local post office and request the gps coordinates of where the package was delivered. If it was delivered to the wrong address, the post office will attempt to retrieve it. If it was delivered correctly, then...

Step 3: File a police report for stolen mail as stealing mail is indeed a felony.

With a copy of the police report, I will refund or replace your purchase.
