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.

Cuter Art Books for sale release no 2 March 2021

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!

Wee Book 1 : Like a Soft Kiss

Video Journal Chat a & journal release 2

I love chatting about junk journals, so let’s get chattin’! :-)

I decided to keep two of them to work in myself, and to list the rest of them in the shop and announce it to my Newsletter as I did with the previous journal release.

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.

Check out Studio iHanna Shop for digital goods and a closer look at Wee book 3, Wee book 4 and the blank notebook that I named Wee Purple Book, the rest have already been shipped and received.

Have a creative day my friends!
