Fave Etsy Finds - Journals

I love starting a new journal. All those glorious blank pages waiting to be filled! My journals tend to be half written, half sketched, and always a bit kooky. I am always searching for new and unique journals to become my companion. Here are few of my favorites...

afiori
Maria-Thérèse Andersson at afiori makes such luscious journals! She selects a gorgeous array of papers that inspire creativity. Her ethereal, dreamy photos and collages often grace the cover. My current book is one of her creations and it's just about full. I know I will back for another soon! Check out some of her selections at her Etsy shop! Here are a few that I have my eye on...




SpaceDog Studios
I had the pleasure of meeting the artist behind SpaceDog Studios while visiting Oddmall last November. I immediately fell in love with the style of her handmade journals. I adore all of her products, but especially love the kitchen sink journals and sketchbooks.


Thank you to my fabulous mommy who surprised me on Christmas with Risky Kitty (below). I fell in love with Risky Kitty the moment I set eyes on her daring bikini! And... it's full of high quality watercolor paper! Swoon...


I plan to write and doodle a lot more in the coming year, so I'm going to need more journals! I'm sure I'll be back to afiori and SpaceDog Studios, but I look forward to sharing my new handmade finds as well!

Hello sweetie pie! Thank you for featuring my shop!!! I sometimes think about you and that you may be writing or drawing in the book I made :) Makes me smile.

I received an Etsy-purchased journal from Tremundo from a friend for Christmas. Lovely! Can't have too many journals and sketchbooks, as far as I'm concerned.
