These sweet little notebooks are, once again, a result of using up leftovers. Slightly dented/creased signatures of paper teamed with scrapbook paper, random cardboard, and offcuts of bookcloth for the covers. Voila, two composition style notebooks. Available in my Etsy shop for a bargain price, click here to view the listing.
Another little book that was made using leftovers. I’ve had this lighthouse charm lurking in my studio for years, so it’s lovely to have finally used it! The leather is one of my favourites, so sumptuously soft that it just invites being stroked.

I made this book in October but haven’t been able to blog about it because it was intended as a Christmas gift. The lady who ordered it asked for something feminine and pretty, and for it to feature her friend’s name. Sorry the photos aren’t great, I made the mistake of sending the book off before checking the photos were straight!
This is actually work from Tuesday, but one of the vagaries of winter is the lack of decent light for photography. It doesn’t affect all the things I make, but some colours or textures need really good light in order to show them off to their best. Dark green book cloth happens to be one of those things, which means that although the books are finished and ready to go into my shop they are having to sit on my desk until I can get decent photos of them. I’m hoping I’ll have better luck tomorrow!
