Announcement   Welcome to my piece of Etsy! Here you will find a number of objects made by me using recycled or found materials. I feature paper goods like pamphlet-stitched notebooks, hand bound journals made from a variety of papers and old book covers, stamped Moleskine notebooks, coptic-stitched journals, upcycled mini journals, mini-jotters and hand-punched labels.

Take a look at my washi tape sampler pencils, perfect to use in these handmade notebooks. I try to make each pencil original and with pleasing combinations. I'm an avid fan of Project Life and love to offer kits to use in your own albums. Please check out my Paper Goods section. I'm also a lister! I have lots of fun using my handmade notebooks for 30 Days of Lists.

I absolutely love custom listings, so please don't hesitate to start a convo. Please take a look at my sold items for ideas! Je parle français.

A note on packaging: although I really love getting wonderfully wrapped packages, I try to apply the "waste not want not" principle. This means that I reuse packaging as much as possible. So the tissue paper wrapped around your order may come from another package I have bought or was given.

About

Art is cheaper than therapy!

When my family and I moved across the world from Canada to Hong Kong, I must admit I felt quite lost as to what I would do. Hong Kong is a very fast-paced city, there is always something going on. Everyone is constantly sollicited. So I needed to find some solace and a way to create something with my hands. Since there is a lot of waste in a city where fashion changes constantly, I decided to go the opposite way and try to use found or recycled materials. This is how my plush animals came about. I love the fact that I am re-using material that is still is great condition and giving it a new life. I have done the same with all the paper goods in my store. I truly adhere to the 'waste not want not' philosophy. I can't throw out a piece of paper, no matter how small! So I make labels and journals from upcycled book covers using a variety of papers. It makes me truly happy to have found this path and my store is definitely an outlet for those creative ideas.
