Pin It


Moleskine Journal Adventure in Pinks

I can't believe it's Thursday tomorrow already... and I've not got half of the things done that I wanted. I did  however get an order on Etsy for one of my textile collaged books. After a bit of bantering I finally opted for moleskines as a base for further journals and ordered a letter sized cahier to see how they looked. 
I've also got some Volants coming soon, in an A5 size.
Pricing is always difficult- if I added up how long I actually spent working on the books and cover minimum wage, I'd have to charge upwards of £70.00- not going to happen! I might have to up them a little bit though... £30.00 doesn't cover the first days work. Oh the trials of being an artist.

Anyway, here's a peek at the Book of Shadows, created for Karen. 

 I'll be shipping it off to the US tomorrow, I hope it doesn't take too long to get there, and I hope she likes it.

I spent some extra time today making a title page for another journal, in blues and orange, I'll make the cover tomorrow and list it on Etsy as a ready-made, hopefully someone will snap it up for Christmas.


  1. so many different techniques on this so interesting and beautifully done. I agree with you about pricing, if you were to charge an hourly rate it would be prohibitive, hope you get some sales

  2. We all seem to struggle with pricing and it seems that we all sell our work for much less than we should. I know I do. But the love for creating always prevails and when someone falls in love with the item I made, and when I think about my work being loved by someone I don't even know, that just makes me so happy. :)
    Your book is lovely. It's obvious that you spent many hours making it.


Sorry to add the verification box- I hate them so... but I've been getting alot of spam messages lately! Hopefully I'll be able to remove it in a while.xx
