Get Ready For Christmas

by Susan Green October 15, 2013

I know - we've only just said "So long old friend!" to summer and I'm already talking about the season of goodwill and happiness!  But now really is the perfect time to order a personalised journal, sketchbook or memory book for your beloveds this Christmas. 

So consider their favourite colour combinations, an inspiring quotation or their names for the frontspage text, and please order early to avoid disappointment.

There's a run down of your bespoke options here and of course you can email me to discuss your requirements or if you have any queries: susan@boundbyhand.co.uk

I've received some intriguing frontspage requests this year, some cryptic, some romantic, all of them meaningful: "The Adventures of Team X" for a family Memory Book, "And Then I Saw A Fox" for a special journal, and that beautiful line from Wuthering Heights: "Whatever Souls Are Made Of, His and Mine are the Same" which was requested for a Wedding Guest Book.

Scroll down for some colour inspiration: 

Yellow 35 & Orange

Chocolate 32 & Yellow

Grey 31 & White

Maroon 25 & Teal

Do email me to discuss your ideas and ask any questions: susan@boundbyhand.co.uk
