New Leather Colors! New Inspiration!

Sometimes the smallest thing can trigger inspiration. This week I have 3 new leather colors and inspiration has struck me hard. In addition to the new colors, friends have been contacting me for special orders, so that always pushes me to try new things.

Last night, I dreamed about journal making. Besides the ones available in my shop, I will be starting some one of a kind (OOAK) ones. These will come from my leather scrap bag and the leather piece will dictate the finished size, design, etc. Basically, I will be doing what the leather tells me.

I know how important it is to be in LOVE with your journal! And I fully believe that journaling is the way to map the soul. I want my creations to be able to help you with that process.

If you haven't checked out Connie's Art Journal Love Letters Class, I encourage you to do so. It's ongoing, so you haven't missed the beginning, and you can go at your own pace! Here is what one of her students says about Connie and her class.

I urge you to check her out. Miss Connie is amazing! And when you have a need for a journal to map your soul, I'd love to see you at my shop,!

Kari's giveaway ends tomorrow... she is giving away the most amazing ring. Check it out, and enter, HERE :-)

Good morning Robyn!

I plan to buy one of your journals. Whenever I told an etsian that I would buy one of their works, I have kept my word. It may take me a bit to get into the financial position (like yoga- LOL) but I manage. See you on the thread. Best wishes for your day.

I am so loving that green on the bottom of the stack! The perfect color!
I think making OOAK Journals is a fantastic idea. I agree that letting the leather speak to you is the way to go. Some of my best creations come when I pick up a fabric I love and just go with the flow. Can you leather, maybe some complimentary suede a beautiful tie loop with a unique button...Oh man it gives me chills to think of the possibilities.
Wonder if there was a way to include fabric? Do I sound like a pusher? I readily admit my fabric addiction, I simply can’t help myself. LoL
Wishing you much success…

Your new journals are beautiful. I can hardly wait until I own one! I'm excited to see what the leather tells you to make... that's how I work with my beads and some amazing things happen when you let your materials lead the way.

I want a burgandy one so much! When I can afford it, it will be mine. I think this time I'd like a little pocket journal, so I will keep an eye out to see what your creative mind devises!
