  5. Thank you all for your lovely comments! Love the train ride idea, I guess I'm a bit of a nostalgic one and it comes across in some shape or form or another. Maybe you can imagine the music from 'O Brother Where Art Thou' playing sometimes in my studio. ;)

    Mel, the embossing takes a while, yes. The leather has to be dampish to take to the stamping nicely, so I give it a good polish or 2 or 5 or 10. And sometimes throughout the procedure. ;) I love hammering with my olde rustic wooden mallet. It feels fantastic. Some of the stamps are not as nice as others but I prefer the decorative simple ones.

  7. Dear galatea, that is a very large order but my goodness I am thrilled to think you would like my little things at your wedding! Please email me: bibliographica@gmail.com and we can talk more. I am quite a slow worker as all items are completely handmade.. I am unsure of your time frame! I look forward to talking with you. Louise. :) x

  8. I am going to have to treat myself to one of your journals very soon. The crescent shaped embossings are particularly alluring.
