Blowin' in the Wind

Just finished, 
this large leather journal with tea-stained pages, 
rustic reclaimed dark brown leather & beads. 

For the end-papers, 
I finally made use of some vintage sheet music
which I have been carting around for quite some years; 
from 'Blowin' in the Wind' by Bob Dylan. 

I loved creating this journal.

Get it here.

A Pocketful of Words

Just completed, this large vintage / reclaimed leather journal - 
it was a feat, and it's delicious, if I might say so myself.

A rather-flighty-blogpost, 
but here are some new creations that were born this weekend.

Quite a bit of heavy rain and some good studio time were spent.

Clicking on each title in bold will take you to the listing in my Etsy store.

The Piscean

I know, 
I posted this one a little late, 
as Pisces is now over........ 
but, here it is, all the same.

A delightful little thing, this one.

Writing, Borrowing & Autumn

It's been a long time since I posted - 
and I have good reason - 
my computer died.

As they do, (when you most need them).

In the back of my mind, I often wish I was not reliant so much on a computer. Perhaps my thoughts of these things, made it finally give up. I have known it was going to lose itself, as it has been showing many signs of wear and tear. I chose to just let it tell me, when enough was enough.

So when the day came, I felt almost indifferent to this crash. 
I can still retrieve my documents, which is most important.

A new computer is in the works; meanwhile I am borrowing screens. 

Borrowing programs. 

I've managed to fill up the remaining half of my journal with hand written black ink, since the beginning of February. I now have no journal, so will be on the look out for a book to write in. I sit each morning before this view, and write with my espresso. 

Writing is good. Let it out - anything will do.


I bought some watercolour paper and have created a new sketchbook,






And another, 






More are in the making,

The last words I squeezed into the final space in my journal were,
'Autumn is upon us'.

I relish in the chilly mornings,
 cosy evenings and mugs of tea. 

Until my next post.

:)
