Handmade Journals


Stories about the books.

Dreaming of Summer Trips!


I think I've had enough of winter!  I have been making these wooden refillable journals with travel themes....yes, summer is coming.  These covers are upcycled paneling from my family's ranch.  They have been painted inside (the actual paneling side).  The outsides (which used to be the back sides of the paneling) have been sanded, sealed, sanded some more before painting the image. 

They have pockets inside both the front and back covers for corralling small bits of paper and cards.   Two moleskine-sized notebooks fit snugly onto the elastic inside (hence the refillable aspect!).  Never too soon to get those travel journals ready to go; you can find these at Upcycled in Missoula.
