Handmade Journals


Stories about the books.

Time to Take Stock


It’s that time of year when the art shows are over, special orders are filled, and it’s time to take stock. I am taking inventory of my handmade work, listing many journals on my website store, and making plans for 2019. How did the year go? What do I want to change? What did people seem to like? How are people using the journals I make? As I reflect on all this, I have some new designs up my sleeve and some exciting new creative avenues to go down. Pausing, planning and note taking (and what better place to do all that than in one of my refillable journals!)

I hope you are able to slow down and take stock. I love this time of year for its pivot point — looking back at the year behind us and making goals for the year to come. It’s all good!
