Posted on February 13, 2013 by Susan Green | 0 comments

We're happy to have our Wedding Guest Book featured in Dorset magazine in a piece on contemporary white interiors, along with gorgeous items from fellow Dorset companies Hunter Gatherer and the Hambledon Gallery, also Farrow and Ball and John Lewis.

Our Wedding Guest Books are bound in the finest white goatskin with neutral accents and feature the words 'Happily ever after...' on the frontspage. Thanks to their special binding style, they lie open on a table to receive your guests' well wishes - perfect for the reception or gift area at your wedding.

We also bind these Guest Books in your choice of 26 leather colours to co-ordinate with your colour scheme and with custom text - our couples often choose their names, their wedding date and location. More information on our Bespoke Service can be found here or email to discuss your requirements.

Our thanks to Interiors Editor Alexandra Richards and Dorset magazine, which is published by Archant Life. Dorset artists, makers and other small creative businesses are so grateful for the invaluable support we receive from our county press, especially from such a highly regarded publication as Dorset magazine.

2013: Resolutions & Prescriptions

Posted on December 30, 2012 by Susan Green | 0 comments

New Year, New You? Top 10 Resolutions For 2013? Ten Reasons Not To Make Resolutions?

And so on... yes, everyone's talking about New Year's resolutions, and apart from vowing to complete all my Christmas shopping and tax return by the end of November, I'm planning to journal more. So that's why I'm binding myself a brand new journal, this year it will be an A4 ruled hardback journal in a Metallic bookcloth, probably Bronze, possibly Gold: practical yet a touch decadent and definitely right on trend - just what I need. 

Keeping a diary or journal is a great way to stay on top of our plans and dreams, keep up to date with ourselves and take some time to reflect and join the dots. It's also surprising what new creative ideas pop up when you just drift off and doodle in the margins. Research shows that keeping a journal has positive effects on our wellbeing, so I'd like to offer a few prescriptions to see you through the start of 2013.

Feeling a little blue? 

Mini Journal: Blue & Yellow



Green with envy?

Journal / Sketchbook: Green & White


Embarking on a new love affair?

Journal / Sketchbook / Guest Book: Red & White


Resolving to see the sunshine behind the clouds?

Hardback Journal: Grey & Yellow

Giving up chocolate?

 Journal / Sketchbook: Chocolate & Orange

Whatever your resolutions, I hope 2013 proves to be everything you wish it to be, that your creative endeavours take flight and that your feet find interesting paths to travel. And don't forget to spend a little time writing, sketching, planning and doodling - it's good for you!
