Boho Wrapture

A new book
the last to list for a few days as I pack up house and move, 
for the first time in over 3 years. 

The space that has been home,
is now just a construction of borrowed space, 
with memories embedded in the walls. 

I imagine them whispering, 
what of their words?

Every time I move I say;
"One day,
I'll build my own house."

- A dream I'll never let go of.

Even if it starts with a tent,
on a vacant piece of land.

Even if not to stay;

but to return to,
over and over,

Ledgers & Things

Another miniature sketchbook got made -
ledger style with fold out pages. Get it here.

A large leather journal was put together,
 with some raw-edged remnants I dug for in the studio.

A ledger format journal was created,
 with a dragonfly theme - 
we all know it wasn't going to be long,
 before one of these showed up in my store again ....

Between all this, I found a vintage map and wanted to stain it. 
It pained me to tear it into bits in the first place, 
but I had bought it specifically to use 
as endpapers for travel journals
 - and so it goes. 
It was backed with linen, 
and of course this detached itself in the staining process. 
I marveled at this event, 
I felt like an archaeologist - 
yet lacking the appropriate tools to handle these artifacts.  
With wide eyes, 
it seemed like laying out pieces of skin, 
piece after piece, 
delicate and old.


I will of course return with updates.

It's always been in the back of my mind
 to create different shaped books.

Triangulus, my newest creation is born of this desire.

Measuring over 11 inches tall, 8 inches long & over 5 inches wide,
it's a large creature,
and eagerly awaits words,
sketches & snippets.

The Little Artist

I made another one of these fiddly fellows. 
If any creation of mine teaches me patience the most, 
it's these little things. 
Upon completion they generate much joy inside, 
I love them. 
I'd mostly love to see one filled with little sketches. 
This is likely the 5th miniature sketchbook I have made. 
Perhaps a big one is on the horizon? 

                                                                           .....Am I bold enough?

(I do have something in the works... that I have been working on for a while now,
that will be in my next post, and trust me when I tell you, it is bigger than this)

The Preservator

A long time project that I have returned to sporadically in between others, 
I have finally decided to announce its completion.
As it is passed forward, 
 new life and more additions await the pages within.

Loved making this, 
and it feels like parting with an old friend, 
that I know I'll never meet again.

It measures over 10 inches tall and 6 inches wide, 
with a 2 inch-thick spine.

I've returned to it repeatedly over the last 2 years,
adding snippets of ephemera, vintage & found,
ink stamps from my ridiculously extensive collection,
tiny envelopes,
printed matter & authentic vintage photographs,
it's all here...
320 pages.
