While my shoppe stands almost bare, I am behind the scenes tinkering away every day of the week on new books. I plan to only release a few at a time leading up to Christmas. 

There are larger recycled leather journals featuring various textiles & trims awaiting their finishing touches; others are half way through, some are still forming in my mind. A tidy up takes place, only to need repeating the next day, and the next. 

What is a studio without a little chaos, I say. So let that mess be. It means stuff is happening, the creativity is pouring from you. 

Here is a preview of the larger books I have brewing.

*All Sold Out

I considered also returning to a design which I have repeated many times over the years - my 'Bundler' & 'Wrapture' books which open up like a present. You can see more of these here

Meanwhile I have been stitching miniature books at night. Two more little artists made it into the store last night. One sold within minutes but the other remains for the time being. I have come up with a new twist on this design, combining my other elements into it. Each time I create one of these I look forward to the next.

Here is the black one, which has sold.

And the little brown one, which I have covered with remnants of the vintage jacket leather, and a tiny snippet of some gorgeous green linen from this book (& also this book) a while back, which I saved a sliver because I loved it so much. I wish I could find more of this linen. 

You will find more necklaces with these combination elements of my work, 
in store leading up to Christmas. 
Keep an eye out on Facebook & Instagram.

    1. Thank you Susan! I love making books, it's my happy place. X

  2. Oh--WOW! Just so much beauty in the making...

  3. So hard to believe it is that time already! The "leading up to Christmas" time. It's going to be a messy, frantic few months here, that's for certain!!

    The large journals are quite stunning as are the old Wrapture pieces Louise. . . I never saw those before. :)

    Keep to your happy place and make-away! Hoping the days ahead are filled with light, love, soul and serenity!! xx
