I've made similar notebooks to the faux leather ones. This time I use denim fabric and added some laces for a little bit of feminine touch.
I really like these little notebooks.
I've also been learning new binding methods, these are just prototypes that I was working on. My shelves are accumulating a lot of prototype journals, notebooks and journals that didn't quite make the cut to be in the shops. I guess I'll never run out of journals to write in :)
Last weekend I met a few new Etsy friends in the city. I almost didn't want to go, shyness being the main reason, after months being and working alone at home, meeting people makes me nervous, especially in a group. But Gene encouraged me to go out and make new friends and so I went. I was so nervous that I could feel my ears and face burning up every time I started talking. It's hilarious to think about it now. I talk better behind a computer than in person. It was a pleasant gathering after all and I enjoyed it. The cute paper cut out with sweets and chocolates inside was a little gift from Emily, who organised the gathering.
I received a box of goodies from my sister and what a happy treat it was for me and Kiki :)
I've made my to do list for next month and will be seeing myself happily making more journals in the studio in the coming days.
My next market: 29 September (Sunday), 10am-2pm - Titirangi Village Market
