About

Sketchbooks & Journals for artists, writers, and low-tech creativity...anyplace, anytime, no recharging necessary

When I started my Etsy shop in 2009, Etsy wasn't quite as well known as it is now.
I didn't even make journals yet, I just had some crocheted hats and stuff.
I didn't start making significant sales until about 2012 (So stick with it, if you are just starting out!). I lived on a small, isolated island and being able to share my art worldwide and make a little extra money was an amazing gift.
Wow, I have learned a lot and even started a brick-and-mortar shop and book-arts center since then! I moved off the Island to a nearby art-centric town, La Conner, WA.
I'm about 7 years into making journals and I'm still obsessed. I love to use the random books and maps that libraries are throwing out. I love the feedback and ideas I get from my customers.
Overall, I'm full of gratitude, and excited to see what happens next!

Why “rogue” ?

Im sorry to say there is a lot of snobbery in the bookbinding and art universe, and I’m not interested. I’ve had - and will have - some great teachers, but I’m doing my own thing.
