At the end of the month I release a new batch of journals in my shop, and the last batch was number two that was first e-mailed out to everyone on the Newsletter who get first dibs. If you want to be the first to know when the next batch of yummy junk journals comes out I suggest you subscribe to the iHanna Newsletter.
In there were some very small art books that I named Wee Books – for Creative Adventures once upon a time. I made beaded dangles for each of them and cute labels and everything.
They’ve just been sitting in a box for way too long, so it was time I brought them out into the light. So let’s take a look at them together. I don’t remember how many I made, because form the initial pile I think I sent a few out as happy mail, and I am keeping two for myself. But if you want to take a look at them here’s the video showing all the wee books, their pages and some extra journal ideas that might inspire you to make your own wee books!

I love chatting about junk journals, so let’s get chattin’! :-)
Less talking and a really quick flip-through of all of theses junk journals are here:
There are some left for sale still, but only a few – check the shop if you’re interested.
I think they’re so cute!
The Wee Books are just 9 x 11,5 cm (that’s about 3.5 x 4.5 inches) and each have twenty pages, made from colored paper, magazine pages, envelopes, old book pages, wall-papers and almost all spreads are “started” in some way with a collage by me. Later this year I’d like to make even smaller volumes… how small could you go and still be useful or at least usable you think?
Here are a couple of the wee spreads:
Some of these have been sold, thank you guys. Also, I sometimes get lovely notes from customers these days, like this tweet:
It can still take a while for mail to arrive and there’s not much we can do about that, but I feel grateful every time when it works. It shouldn’t take months, but I just saw on Instagram that a postcard from the DIY Postcard Swap that I host traveled from Australia to Norway and just arrived the other day. It took 2 months for it to arrive!
I am also grateful that you want to buy from a tiny biz like me. You do not know just how much it means, but I feel so grateful every time.
Have a creative day my friends!
