How Can It Be Fall Already???

Wow, the summer went by quickly didn't it! It's supposed to get nice and cool here this week, so fall will definitely be in the air! These next few months are my favorite time of the year! This year we will have a lot of new things to look forward to, as well as the traditions we keep up with every year! The boys are participating in a school musical for the first time, and my daughter and I are helping out with the costumes. We'll have Thanksgiving in Ohio again, and then there's the exciting Holidays! I'm sure it will all go by all too fast, just like the summer!

Since we're getting ready for the Holidays, I've been busy adding some new things to my shop! I've got some smaller size pocket leather journals
I had some paper cut a couple months ago, and made a mistake with the size. I didn't think I'd be able to use it, but it turns out it's just perfect for these pocket journals.

For all of you that like a refillable journal, I've got these new ones

I get asked a lot if I make refillable journals, and really wanted to come up with something special for this type of journal. I worked for quite awhile to get these just right, and am really happy with the way they are constructed. The paper in the journals is loose paper, not a premade journal. The pages are punched, and tied with a leather cord into a riveted piece of leather on the inside of the journal. The inner leather piece has been glued, and stitched to the outer cover. This really makes the journal look like it is hand bound, plus gives added strength!

Another great thing about these refillable journals is that the papers are standard sizes, so they will be easy to refill. The largest size (yet to be listed) is 8 1/2" x 11", the medium size is half that at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", and the smallest size is a quarter sheet at 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I will be offering refills for these, but they will be easy to do it yourself too!

The newest journal added to my shop today is this really cool Belt Buckle Journal! New territory for me, but I'm excited about how it turned out!

Even though the belt buckle is functional, if this were my journal, I would use the easy to open snap closure on the back! I will be making a few more of this type using different buckles!

That's about all the news for now! I'll be updating you as the season progresses. I hope you have a Happy Autumn, and enjoy all it's pleasures!
