Brand New!!

Hand Made Paper Journal With Coptic Stitch Binding--broomsedge tan paper around 5 signatures and recycled brown bag as the end papers.
This journal has a great feel because the five signatures are stitched into the spine and the 5 3/4" x 4 3/8" inch size. It is perfect for holding.

Each signature has ten pages 5 1/4" x 4 1/4" of artic white paper stitched in the center. When folded that is 20 pages.

The total pages in this limited edition journal is 100 pages.

My coptic stitch journal is unique because my handmade paper separates each section of papers.

I showed this to my son and he likes the weight and feel of the journal.
Then I showed it to my sister and she said, "wow, this would be great for grandmothers. Each signature would be for each grand child. You could customize the number of signatures that the grandmother needed!" What a great idea, Sis!!! I love you!

So folks, who would like a customized, handmade paper covered, coptic stitch journal?? Even if you are not a grandmother, I can customize a journal for you!!

What inspires Me?

My husband and I went on a trip with a couple of very dear friends to the Great Smoky Mountains this weekend. We went hiking for three days when it dawned on me that maybe my readers would be interested in what inspires me. So I will show you a couple of pictures which I took and then show you one of my newest cards.

I love to look at the mountains and the different layers for a vista or wide view. Then when we are walking in the woods and I see the ferns, leaves, flowers, etc close-up, I want to combine all into one small card front. I may put in a color for a sun or a moon-(Gee, that's a good idea), blue for the hint of sky and then a plant close-up for perspective.

I really am creating a quality card that my customers will be proud to send. It's important when, if you are like me, a person only sends a card occassionally to a very good friend or relative.

What are your thoughts on who you would send a very special card?

PaperMajik Reveals New Project!!

Papermajik reveals new project, soon to be in her store..

Do you remember a few posts ago when I had a picture of what looked like a pile of sticks?

Well, as promised, you get the first look at what I created--a paper lamp. This is my paper with gingko leaves pressed into the paper. The lamp is constructed of basswood which I cut, stained, glued and screwed together to hold a small light bulb (night light size).

I wanted to create this as an accessory to one's home.

This is a proto-type as I was learning while I created. What should I charge for the lamp? I really need your input--$30, $60, ???

Thanks for looking and giving your help.

Hand Made Paper Journal Cover--Florida Vacation

It's vacation time!!! How many of you are going on a vacation? Where are you going? Tell me all about your vacation plans!!

My plans this summer are to renovate my kitchen. I will be painting, a plumber is coming in to fix a leak, the cabinets have to be moved, the floor fixed and then the cabinets will be replaced. This all sounds simple, but I have been stressing out about the coordinating. I'll show some pictures later on.

So, I am dreaming of a summer vacation. That's why I created this journal.

My Hand Made Paper Journal Cover--Florida Vacation is ready to go with you and capture your memories of a fast fleeting time-off from work.

A brown paper bag is recycled as the handmade paper base for the journal. Map pieces were also blended into the pulp to give a unique appearance to the paper.

The bead dangle has a shell, green pearl and black triangular bead.

Can't wait to hear about your vacation plans!

Hand Made Single Recycled School Paper Herb Seed Card--Oregano

A single hand made recycled school paper herb seed card with a red heart has tiny oregano seeds!! Making paper cards and recycling school paper is even better with hearts and bumpy earth ready seeds!

The small bumps under each heart are seeds. Did I say small? These seeds are as tiny as the periods on this page! I had to wet my pinky finger to place the seeds on the card!

The paper is recycled school paper, so you will be saving the earth too.

IMPORTANT NOTE-- No school children were harmed in the production of these cards, only their school work!

Happy Fourth of July

I wish everyone a happy and safe Fourth of July!! Enjoy what you are doing, enjoy who you are with and remember how we acquired this freedom. Many people, who are braver than I am, go and fight in another land, or on our soil to preserve our freedom.
