introducing 2 new items!

Two new items in my shop today...

In desperate need of some little notebooks around the house, I indulged in some notebook cuteness yesterday. They were quick and fun to make and I just love the paper! Can't you tell brown/blue combination is a personal favorite? ;) Anyway, I made far more than I required, so I decided to list some on my etsy shop.

Each book is approximately 4.25" wide x 5.5" tall, and lovingly handcut, folded and stitched. The pages are handtorn to size for a nice rough edge.
♥ cover is beautiful patterned scrapbook card stock
♥ pamphlet binding visible on the spine
♥ stitched by hand with walnut-colored waxed linen thread
♥ 40 pages (counting both sides) per book of good quality creamy 24lb. acid-free writing paper


I also made a Food & Fitness Journal. I've been meaning to make one for myself for quite a while and finally go the chance the other week. I made two - I kept one for myself, which I've been using for the past couple week (it's great) and decided to make another one to list on the shop. I'm really happy with how it turned out and will probably make some more.

Approx. 5.5" x 4.25" x 1", it's the perfect size to slip into a purse or gym bag!

♥ will allow tracking for 200 days (200 pages counting both sides)
♥ each page has space for: the date, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, exercise and water (see photo details)
♥ 40 blank pages in the back to track your progress, keep track of measurements/weight, paste in articles or photos, write about your goals & achievements
♥ front page with name, date started/ended
♥ handbound with waxed linen bookbinding thread
♥ covered with a gorgeous strong and sturdy tan oilskin cowhide
♥ paper is handtorn and handstitched to the cover (non-refillable)
♥ heart tag is removable
