New Items just in time for the holidays!




Just in time for the holidays, I am so excited to be presenting this item to you! I know there are many of you that keep more than one journal at a time (you know who you are!) and even more of you that like to start a new journal as soon as you're finished with one. Well this boxed set of my Basic Leather journals is just for you! This would also make a great gift for the journal keepers in your life.

This set includes 3 Basic Burgundy Leather journals and a beautiful fitted box to store them in. The blank journals are made from a rich burgundy latigo leather, and it is my favorite of all the leathers I use. The leather used in these journals is already soft and pliable, but will get even more so as you use it, making it a wonderful choice for journaling.

Each basic journal measures 5 1/2" x 3 3/4" (14 x 10cm) and is 1" (3.5cm) thick. The perfect size to carry in your purse, pocket, or throw in a backpack. It is filled with 240 pages or 120 sheets of beautiful 70 lb text weight paper. The color of the paper is a light cream with very small specks sprinkled all over it. A very sturdy longstitch binding will hold the pages securely and there is a knotted thread place holder. I couldn't resist a little decoration so I've added a hand tooled detail line around the whole book.

The box is made from a very nice black matte board. There is a matching piece of leather on the front of the box with the same hand tooled detail line as the journals. The box was made by me to specifically fit the three basic journals. It is very sturdy and will fit nicely on a bookshelf or table.

As an added bonus, I'm offering personal monogramming on all these journals at no charge. What better way to make these books all your own or to add something special and personal in a gift.
