Hello, Welcome to Undercover Street!

One day in October 2009 I started making journals. Although, I have many of my own and didn't need another. I was going though a crisis and needed an outlet. This has become that outlet and so much more. I love old paper, taking pictures of old things, old photographs, and even old friends. It was only natural for me to use vintage paper clippings.

It started with purchasing paper scraps and odds and ends in packs from other etsy sellers. Then I found the adventure of hunting for these finds in antique stores in my city.

I use old magazines, photos, and any other old beauties I can find. All Hand bound journals are made with as many recycled materials as possible. The covers are most often made with found cardboard and card stock. Such as cereal and shoe boxes and packaging materials.
