I did it – I opened my book shop! Well, not the kind where you can buy books to read, but the kind where you can buy books to fill with your own poetry, scribbles, thoughts, secrets, etc.
Introducing, Bookgirl’s Studio!
My little shop will have my beaded journals for now but I plan to fill it up with journals in different sizes and with different bindings in weeks/months to come so I hope you’ll visit often. I will let you know when a new batch of journals shows up and I plan to have a newsletter and other kinds of things but again, I’ll keep you posted on all of that.
All of this feels a bit scary, thrilling and fun. I want to say a special thank you to Christine (she’s already even written about me!) and Shadan. These wonderful girlfriends have given me so much encouragement in my new venture. I also want to thank all of you readers who’ve read my posts on my projects and my bookbinding adventures. I enjoy sharing those stories.
I know I’m joining a lot of other wonderful bookbinders on Etsy. There is some amazing talent on that site but I believe that will also inspire me to continue to hone my craft.
Finally, a big thank you to my wonderful husband who took pictures, encouraged me and inspires me.
So off I go to spend the evening with some good books and maybe I’ll even dream up some new journals for the shop.
