Original recent 1

Welcome to my shop.

I live on the West Coast of Canada in Vancouver surrounded by mountains and the Pacific Ocean.

Everything in my shop is 100% hand crafted with original materials.

I sold on Etsy for three years and received great feedback. Now I'm here and looking forward to being a full time Zibbeter.

I love making hand stitched books and journals. Having learned to use Photoshop to make digital art I design book covers for some of my hand bound books. I often add my own designed pockets for ephemera or to store journalling or Manila tags.

Shipping Tags- As a former ATC maker I get to break out and be totally creative with my new addiction. Manila tags are made from recycled paper. My tags are real shipping tags and can stand up to being altered. None of my tags are printed out.

Greeting cards - I design my greeting cards in Photoshop and print onto heavy card stock. Each card comes with a thick, rich envelope.

Journals and Notebooks - All my Journals and Notebooks are made by hand and from scratch using traditional bookbinding methods. The papers are all hand cut in my studio (Dining room). Then sewn by hand with Waxed linen thread. The covers are glued with wheat paste that is cooked and strained, Nori paste made from Rice starch or PVA glue (archival).

I love handmade objects myself, so I am a buyer as well as being a seller. I'm happy to be on Zibbet and surrounded by so many talented people.
I'm a member of The Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild or affectionately known as cabbage. CBBAG
