Delightful Louise, cheers Marie
Oh the detailing Louise! How long did it take you?
Beautiful. That leather just looks so soft.
you never cease to inspire me .. bravo creative lady! ♦♦♦
Gorgeous! It reminds me of an old black and white movie with long train rides :-)
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.
this is all too incredible. you can (and should) create a mini-sized library as an exhibit xx wanted to ask you for prices for wedding giveaways! i would love to give my guests one your stuff. for 100 people? please let me know xx
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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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
I am going to have to treat myself to one of your journals very soon. The crescent shaped embossings are particularly alluring.
Postcards & Tea is charming - a favourite :)
Thank you Vera & Denise for your comments! :)
