"I received a beautifully wrapped package today and found the three lovely Accordion Sketchbooks I ordered. It is wonderful to find a company who takes such pleasure in their products and craftwork."
“These journals really are made with the finest materials, the quality of the leather is evident from touch alone. This is a product which will stand the test of time.”
"I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your great service and the exquisite quality of the memory book."
Someone asked where I get my sustainable packaging supplies from, so I thought I might as well share here in case the info is useful to my fellow makers. Please share with anyone who might find it helpful.
