Custom Journal

Just listed a custom order this morning that I especially enjoyed making. It was a journal with the Isle of Man on the front. Located between Ireland and Scotland, the Isle of Man was where the ancestors of my customer came from. She had been there twice and both times kept a journal of her travels, but "used a very cheap notebook and the pages are falling out." She wanted a handmade journal to transcribe her previous journals into, and with space to add some photos. Most importantly, she wants it to last. It's fun for me to hear stories like this and to have them in mind as I'm making a special journal for someone. I think it's also important to have a journal with you as special as the trip you're taking.
