heirloom journals


I thought I'd do an artist spotlight today and share with you these lovely journals.
I purchased these two recently. They are lovingly handmade by a girl named Kacie who calls them Heirloom Journals. She takes old hardcover books and replaces the text with blank paper. She consigns through Mackey Blue if you are interested.
I love the little red one whose title is The Story of a Hundred Operas for carrying around in my bag. The other one is titled Come Along... Reading for Meaning and it has amazing graphics.
