...wait...no, it's not! But that doesn't mean it's too early to start thinking about Christmas and all the gifts you'll be buying for your loved ones! Why not invest in a unique, hand-crafted book that will easily become a treasured keepsake? For this holiday season, I'm offering two options: Custom or Collection
CUSTOM: I love creating one-of-a-kind journals and sketchbooks and can easily customize a design for anyone on your gift list! Each book is designed-to-order, so to guarantee that your book(s) will be finished in time for Christmas, please have your orders submitted to me no later than NOVEMBER 15th. That will allow me ample time to create a design for each of your items, collect the perfect materials, and give each book the amount of artistic finesse and patience they deserve.
Please note: a 50% non-refundable deposit is required up front for all custom orders.
COLLECTION: I also currently have several designs in my inventory available for sale. I have listed images of each book as well as a brief description and price.
"Precious Pink" is 8.5" tall by 5.5" wide, hard-bound, 200 pages (pink paper), with a white satin ribbon bookmark.
The cover is made from a wonderfully soft and fibrous patterned paper featuring flowers and dots. The spine is embellished with two diamond rhinestone-studded brads.
The paste papers are a playful pink gingham. This book would be perfect for an expectant mother who is going to have a girl. :) Cost: $25. SOLD
"Beaded Bohemian" is 5.5" wide by 4.25" tall, paper-back, 120 pages (pink paper).
I have two of these books available, and I am willing to sell them individually or as a set. The covers are cut from the same sheet of paper, so they are similar but not identical.
