Taking time to write and making books

I took a week off from making books last week, I needed a little break and it was a good one. I spent most of my time in the garden and the autumn weather has been simply lovely. 

Yesterday these words came into my head and would not leave, so I had to write them down "The world does not need you to hustle. The world needs you to be fully present in what you are doing." Ok, I get the message :) Back to practising being mindful in my daily activities and not having a thousand thoughts running in my head while doing things.


I've added some new journals in my webshop. You can check them out in the New Arrival tab.


Somehow I missed this Shibori journal that I made last year. You can find it here now.


I am back making more journals. New Zealand themed journals are quite popular at our local market. I am making more fantail journals and hope to get them in the shop next week.


All done sewing. Cutting and folding papers are next.


Meanwhile, this is what Kiki's daily activities look like :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Journaling ferociously

It has been a stop start kind of journaling in the past couple of weeks, but this week, the equinox week, the energy is pretty intense, and I was feeling a little unsettled within. So out came the journal and I wrote and wrote and doodle and collage and paint non stop.

In my newsletter, I wrote about how I sense things are changing with my work, but I'm not quite sure what yet. I'll just have to follow the flow and see what unfolds.








My pages are really varied. It can range from Zen like entry to really messy art collage. There is just no stopping once I start journaling, anything can happen :)

I've made and listed some old favourites to my Etsy shop, the green linen journals that were sold out are now back in the shop.


Stillness Speaks green linen journal.


Wanderlust travel journal.


A small A6 lotus journal.

I will add them to the website soon.

My Etsy shop is having a sale from 22 - 29 March. Everything is 10% off. A journal (or two) makes a great Mothers Day gift that is coming soon. Or time to grab one for yourself.

Have a lovely weekend!

New website is now LIVE

I am excited and happy to announce the launch of my new website www.mettaville.com on this special day which happens to be International Women's Day. I have been working on building this website for over six months and it hasn't always been easy as I have no technical or web design background, but I did it! It is not a perfect website but I am very pleased with myself for my effort and achievement, and that is something worth celebrating!

In order to celebrate, everything in my website is 15% off today. Simply enter the coupon code "nowopen15" at checkout.

I will continue to work on the website and adding new products. There is a link on the top menu. For now, I think I deserve a little rest :)

Thank you for your continuous support!
