Clamshell Box with Journal

I thought it might be fun to create a clamshell box for one of my journals – and it was fun. I like these as a set and think I’ll do some more.

9 Drawer Box

 

I’ve been working lately on making this 9 drawer box with a place for a journal on the side. I undertook this as a way to gain some experience with making boxes, but also as a way to learn how to size everything properly (still have lots to learn). This box is covered in fabric, and I found it quite a challenge. But all in all, I think it turned out well. It has 9 drawers, 4 small drawers, 2 sets of 2 drawers and 1 long drawer.

I’ve been playing with making boxes lately. Here are some that are now completed.

Journals using new handmade buttons

Softcover Journals with handmade buttons

Softcover Journals with handmade buttons

I just finished some new softcover journals using my new buttons. Some of these have standard handmade buttons from Bumblebeads. The others are using the new handmade buttons with my bird design on them. Dede from Bumblebeads made them specifically for me.


Handmade Buttons for Journals

I recently met Dede Leupold (Bumblebeads) who makes hand made buttons. I bought a bunch of these buttons to go on my softcover journals and I’m anxious to do that,

Additionally, I asked her to make some that have my logo on them so I could use those as well. I am very excited about these new buttons and can’t wait to get some softcover journals made with these great hand made buttons.

 


New Journals

Hardcover journals with exposed spine

I just finished a bunch of new blank journals. Some have a hard cover with exposed spine and others have soft wrap-around covers. I am taking most of these shown to the Focus on Book Arts conference in Oregon this week, where I’ll have them for sale in the artist shop.
