About

A Rustic Journey

Born and raised in rural Minnesota, I draw inspiration from my immediate surroundings as well as adventures along the north shore of Lake Superior. It’s not only my goal to create books that have the look and feel of a rustic adventure but can also be taken on one. I want people to hold one of my handmade leather journals and be taken back to their favorite place or be inspired to go out and find a new one.

I create everything you see in my shop with my own two hands and in creating my leather bound journals and sketchbooks; I maintain a strong commitment to the environment. This means that all of the leather used in my work is scrap leather and that all of the leftovers are processed into mini book jewelry, making sure nothing goes to waste. My covers are adorned with everything from photos I’ve taken myself to pieces of driftwood. It’s not uncommon to see me digging through bins at antique stores or rocks on the lake shore in search of the perfect finishing touch.

In my mind, a journal will always be the perfect way to record a life and isn’t something that should fall by the wayside in a technology laden world. It doesn’t matter if a person writes, draws, takes pictures or collects recipes; my handmade leather journals are both a piece of art and a blank canvas waiting to be filled up with the things that make a person who they are.

I was a featured seller here on Etsy! Check out my interview and photos here: https://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2013/featured-shop-wayfaring-art/

I also have a second Etsy shop that is filled with my Lake Superior inspired jewelry: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheKeepersDaughter?ref=si_shop
