The Purple Journal

While at the Paper Patisserie stationery store earlier this month I bought this lovely handmade journal. It was made Kristen's Creations and I plan to interview Kristen for more information on her handmade journals.

The inside pages have the slightly speckled paper with the softest finish. It's one of those notebooks you want to save for just the right thoughts or occasion and you don't want to make a mistake when you finally do venture inside to write or draw your first entry. These usually, for me, tend to go unused, which is a shame and something I am working on.

In Letters & Journals we plan to have occasional features on artists and stationery store owners. I imagine these people have followed their bliss and are living their dream- not that they don't have challenges and ups and downs.

Are the flowers painted, or real and pressed into the paper? The cover looks lovely.

Hi Christina,
The flowers are real and pressed into the paper. It is almost too lovely to use.
