The Preservator

This is my largest journal yet. I've been working on it for quite some time. At first I was afraid of making something like this, but I let go of my fears and let my creativity flow. I feel proud of the finished piece. There is much detailed work involved and lengthy preparation of materials. I've loved every moment of it. Like a good book that you don't want to end, I feel sad that I have completed it! I shall have to begin another.

It measures 11 ¼ x 4 ¼ inches, with a hefty 2 ¾ inch-thick spine, and has a myriad of famous quotes & affirmations relating to travel and self exploration, which have hand torn edges.

Now available in my Etsy store.

  5. Lucy, Aniko, Connie, Luthien, Lisa & Galatea - thank you so much for your feedback! Maybe when I'm feeling really bold I'll make an even bigger one! ;) This was a challenge to stitch I must say.

  6. Wow this book is just spectacular!! I so want to hold it and savour the aromas and thoughts it embodies. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
