I think there are great stuff to be found if you dig around on Etsy, like awesome handmade journals. Check out Etsy – where I also sell stuff and sometimes journals.
I’ve been checking out journals at Etsy, because I made that notebook junkie magnet so I’ve been thinking of my notebook addiction, and sporting it.
As I was just looking at handmade journals and Clare of Tiger Food Press in Portland tricked me (with a sale!) into buying (even though I did not really need one) a hand bound blank journal with a letterpress printed cover with silhouettes of flying peregrine falcons. It was only 19 USD (150 sek) including shipping to Sweden… I couldn’t help myself.
But actually looking at all of these gorgeous handmade books makes me more eager to make my own handmade journals and notebooks, more so than buying them. I guess I’m that kind of hands on gal after all.
