Small Leather Diaries with Heart Locks

Introducing leather diaries with heart locks...and just in time for Valentine's Day.

“The things we truly love stay with us always, locked in our hearts as long as life remains.”
― Josephine Baker

Perhaps you would like to note a few secret reflections for only your heart to hold or perhaps you are drawn more to the symbolism of cherishing and holding close certain thoughts, prayers, quotes...If so, this small diary would be a perfect fit. It comes with a heart shaped lock and two small heart shaped keys. Maybe it is an extra key in case you lose the first...or maybe it is a key you give to your love so the two of you can share love notes and memories. May this diary assist you well as you write and/or draw those parts of yourself that you want to hold particularly close.

If you would like a custom color and size with a different lock, here are the other lock and key options.  Please contact me with any questions.



Custom Leather Journal with Initials


To write a life is to live twice. –Patricia Hampl


This is a custom hand-bound leather journal with lined recycled paper inside.  It closes securely with a pen and has the recipient's intials hand-stitched on the binding.  







Custom Extra Large Sketchbook with Superhero Logo

This was a custom Christmas gift from one brother to another to be used as a sketchbook. It was made from reclaimed leather, recycled paper, and a belt buckle. It was 9 x 12 inches and has The Green Lantern's logo on the front.




Large Leather Padfolios - Perfect for Work, Meetings, Class, Etc.


Here are a couple of examples of large padfolios that I've been doing. I mostly do these as custom orders (basically so you can choose the type of leather you'd like), but I am starting to take some to festivals with me. They have an 8 1/2 x 11 inch pad of paper that you can refill, a pen and pen holder, and a pocket that you can carry 8 1/2 x 11 inch sheets of paper without folding them.  It also have a business card holder.  You can have them close with a leather tie, snap, magnetic closure, or latch.


Little Update and Custom Leather Journals for Men

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you made it through the holidays with as much ease as possible. I stayed busy and grateful throughout it and was also grateful for a little breather afterwards. I've been quietly getting paperwork, new designs, and such in order for this new year. While I get new designs solidified and ready to share, I will be posting some of the custom pieces from last year. These below are custom sketchbooks made as Christmas presents for a couple of brothers from their mom.


Old Book Paper Garland

My love for old books most days tends towards re-purposing the ones that are being discarded into journals and sketchbooks.  However, I try to take time to play with them in a different way around the holidays.  I love old text blocks.  The pages themselves are enchanting and the uses for them are endless.  This year, I experimented with creating a paper garland for the Christmas tree.  It gives the tree a vintage feel, which I personally enjoy.  I just took the inside out of an old discarded book and cut the pages up in strips.  I lucked out with some of the pages having this nice red line on it, which was a nice touch.  I did discover that I liked the links a little bigger.  Initially, I made them small, but it quickly became more time-consuming than I wanted.  Once it was on the tree, I found that I actually prefer the aesthetic of the longer links.  You'll figure out what you like, too.  Happy holiday creating!

She was becoming herself and daily casting aside that fictitious self
which we assume like a garment with which to appear before the world.

—Kate Chopin, “The Awakening”

"Once you take a look at these journals, it becomes a fun challenge to find the perfect gift among the assortment of designs and colors. These hand made, hand stitched books are a wonderful gift for anyone that you want to inspire to put pen to paper. I have given these as gifts already, and I get just as much enjoyment out of the expression on a person’s face when they examine it as they do writing in it. The artist is enthusiastic about her designs and will work with you to personalize your gift. I’ve had names and dates stitched on mine. This is a lasting gift that is guaranteed to delight!"

Thinking of you...

As I was working on finishing up a stack of journals this morning, I was thinking of all the wonderful people that I know they will be going to. And I am so be able to put good into these books for you, for all the journeys and inspirations that I hope they will help you with, for all the paths I get to cross while doing this...and so much more. Sending you all love as we go into this holiday season!
