A big thank you to In The Moment magazine for including my leather journals in their special feature on writing your way to calm and happy. I was very pleased to see my work featured on page 65, along with the brilliant The Wellbeing Journal from Mind, the mental health charity, which is beautifully illustrated by Kirsten Sevig.
"Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart" ~ William Wordsworth.
I must admit I'm a newcomer to In The Moment, which is dedicated to 'mindful ways to live your life well', but I'm already a fan. Great articles, seasonal creative activities, beautiful images and some thoughtful suggestions for when it's time to go shopping.
"Noteworthy observations merit a superior notepad and Bound by Hand's lovingly made leather journals really are the creme de la creme of stationery."
It's so good to see recommendations for handmade stationery goods, and the recognition that a lot of love and care go into making them. That's not something you get with a mass-produced notebook. A handmade journal - from a professional maker - combines traditional skills, a respect for materials, and the utmost care over workmanship.
My leather journals are available in 3 sizes (A6, A5 & A4), plus a new square format. There's a wide variety of colour combinations, closure options and paper choices, too. I have a selection in stock and ready to ship worldwide, here.
However, you might like to know that many clients like to commission me to make a journal, notebook or sketchbook that's just right for them - so you can choose your size, colours and paper. If you'd like to do that, please get in touch.
I now offer vegan journals and sketchbooks - take a look at my Sustainable Collection. They're bound with with cork textile instead of leather. Cork shares many of the same properites as leather; it's hard-wearing, water resistant and very tactile.
It's made from the bark of the Cork Oak tree, a naturally-renewable natural resource. Harvesting of the bark is kept within sustainable limits by law. So as well as being vegan, my Cork Journals and Sketchbooks are sustainable (especially as their 140gsm pages are made from recycled coffee cups!)
Wishing you all calm and happy, whether you get there through journaling in beautiful handmade journals, doodling on the backs of envelopes, or something else entirely.Susan

Reading In Her Studio reminds me how vital it is to have 'a room of one's own' as Virginia Woolf said, no matter how tiny, imperfect or transient. I'm fortunate to now have a dedicated studio, but that wasn't always the case. As I said in the feature...
