Frequently Asked Questions

Do you make custom journals?

Yes, I absolutely love creating bespoke, one-of-a-kind journals and notebooks for my customers. If you have a specific idea or colour scheme in mind I will be more than happy to discuss options and make something perfect for you! Simply send me an email and we can go from there.

Do you offer international shipping?

Yes absolutely! Many of my customers live outside of the UK, so I am more than happy to send my products to you wherever you happen

to be in the world!

I'd really love to learn about bookbinding!

Do you offer any classes or workshops?

I would absolutely love to teach my craft, I love encouraging and uplifting others in their creativity and helping them gain confidence in a new skill that helps them express themselves. I currently do not offer any workshops (yet!) but am planning on opening that space in the future! Please sign up to my newsletter or follow my social media for updates on when this will happen!

Where do you source your materials from?


I try my best to source my raw materials as locally and sustainably as I can, supporting independent businesses with ethical mindsets behind them.

I source a lot of my 100% recycled paper, grey board, card stock and packaging supplies from EcoCraft, based in the UK. The leather I use is from secondhand off-cuts from a local Somerset company and thrifted from different places where I can. Material is found from charity shops and everything else I source from small Etsy shops.

I'm really trying to cut down my plastic use, do you offer any zero waste options?

Yes! All of my cards, prints and stationery items come packaged in a biodegradable, compostable corn-starch sleeve, so definitely no plastic! Many of my products can come naked too, so if you do not want any packaging at all, email me in the 'notes to seller' option at Etsy checkout (see Shop), or you can choose the 'Go naked!' option for my greetings cards.

Where can I buy your products?

I currently sell online on my Etsy shop and can take on private commissions. Several small independent retailers stock my products around Somerset, Dorset and Devon, you can find a list my current stockists here. I can also be found at different local maker markets and craft events, please follow me on Instagram to find out about my upcoming events I will be at!

If you a retailer looking to stock my products, I would LOVE to hear from you! See my wholesale page for more details and contact me here.
