Herbert, the plant that never dies...

Hand made of felt. I hope I can get a whole bunch of these made to put in my shop. This is my rough draft and there were a bunch of ways to make him cuter, like adjusting the leaves to look like his hair is parted in the middle, and making it like a bean bag by adding uncooked popcorn in the base. I love plants, especially house plants, so this guy is going down as a favorite. :)

Khaki and lovin' it

Similar fabric as the last one I made, only this time it's khaki. I have been asked to put my journals in a store!! It's called ColorCube and it's an all ages music venue, with an arts and crafts shop inside. I hope to get some exposure and some orders too. So if you live in Boise, go check it out!! :)

A new year

I am really searching for inspiration to start a new path with my bookbinding this year. I am seriously considering doing my own fabric prints and then making journals with them. I made this mini notebook yesterday and the whole time I was thinking of how to solidify my identity as a bookbinder. I hope I can figure it out soon. Until then, I think I will fill up my shop with some more felt notebooks. :)
