    For the love of making


    Each journal is thoughtfully curated, with materials being built up over time and from many sources. I dive deep into the theme of the book, primarily using original material that can't be replicated (even by me!) so your piece is truly one of a kind. My aim with each journal is for every page to be either beautiful or interesting - preferably both ♥

    Once the material has been gathered, I tear the pages to size and collate them into signatures. The signatures are hand-sewn into a cover upcycled from unwanted books, and the fun begins!

    Each page is embellished with found paper-based materials, fabric scraps, found objects, and lots of washi tape. Pages may also be tea- or coffee-dyed, and pockets are included on some pages to keep journalling cards and memorabilia. When the journal is complete, it is given a name to reflect its unique character and personality.
