My first book restoration

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.

The seller bibliophil has a fun deal where he makes the book and you decide how you want it; design your own journal!

Kreativlink makes beautiful leather journals but as I’m not very found of leather I’d pick the vegan kind with painted fabric covers instead.

I also love the thick book of the deckled edge bindery, check out the green alligator one for example…


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.

DIY rocks.
