...I guess that's what I'm plagued with, because I'm in denial that it's almost July! Where exactly did June go? It went far too fast!

I've been really busy lately. Custom orders have literally been pouring in, which of course, is lovely. So things have been hopping, here at the bindery. I'm particularly interested in a custom journal measuring 12"x12"x2" which I'm commissioned to do. That's one BIIIIG bubba book! I'm really looking forward to seeing what the finished product will look like. I'll definitely post pics when it's done.

I've also been working on two new types of closures, and I'm really loving them! They're both very convenient as well. Both are now available at La Paperie & Cozy

the sequestered nooks,
And all the sweet serenity of books."

Hard to believe we're over half way through June already. Stunning.
Here are some new books I completed lately.

an additional shop

There has been a slight change to my shop at La Paperie & of this weekend, I no longer will be selling my art along with my journals. I've decided to create a new Etsy shop for my art, along with some of my photography (which will follow in the near future).

The shop's name is Salt Water Shed, as I live close to the gorgeous rugged Atlantic Coast and I am constantly being inspired by the beautiful nature that surrounds me.

I don't have much listed just yet, save for the prints that were already available on my La Paperie Cozy shop, but there is more to come. Feel free to take a jaunt over and take a peek. :)
