I have always made things for myself and for others. I had a clothing business early on in the Bahamas making clothes for the some of the expatriates who lived on the island…. then when we moved to the US, I started quilting and making custom bed linens and window treatments.
Last year I opened an Etsy shop (for those of you who don’t know Etsy is a place where all thing handmade can be found to give as gifts or, even better, to keep for yourself, yummy!).
Here’s the thing……I knew I wanted to offer my handmade items for sale but never knew what I would like to make for others that would not turn into a sort of production line. I wanted to offer special items that were very much a part of who I am as an artist.
Each journal is hand bound with a fabric covered cover and contains 4 signatures that are covered with some funky scrapbook paper….which you know I absolutely love perusing paper and craft stores for.
I am busy making more journals so if you see one you’d like or you have in mind a specific one you want me to make for you let me know. This is soooo way cool!!! Now go over to my etsy shop…….go on, I can wait….. and take a look. Let me know what you think.
Here’s a sneak peak at 1 of the items I have for sale.
I now make beautiful journals that inspire me everyday. So from time to time I will be posting a new one here to let you know I have added a new one to MY Etsy shop at redbarn.studios.etsy.com.
See ya next time “In the Hayloft”,
