About the Creator:
In my mid thirties, I began to feel lost in the life I had created, or seemingly fell into. I sought a creative outlet and began to make stationery by hand using an ancient stab binding method. Connecting to an original art form, and an original form of expression (writing), the handmade production became therapeutic for me, and I often found peace in creating a new journal for someone who would get to unleash their thoughts and visions.
