The Book of Lauren

By | October 28, 2012

Recently I had the pleasure of delivering another book to a worthy recipient. The bookmaking process was surely a fun one that taught me some new tricks in my craft. I had a whirlwind weekend of thrifting that presented me with many options for book covers. I was inspired by a vintage sailing manual which […]

Another book adventure

By | October 5, 2012

At the beginning of the year, I started working on another altered book using this lovely hardback book I picked up while in Big Bear for the winter holiday. Isn’t it adorable? I initially had this crackpot idea that I’d stamp a gold doily all over the page in a nice little pattern. I quickly […]

I apologize for such a late post; where has this day gone? I can’t believe how late it already has become. I’ve been working feverishly all day long to put some things together for the shop and plan to have a number of wares listed by the end of the weekend. Hopefully the masses will […]

Jump into January!

By | November 23, 2011

This past weekend I spent nearly 20 hours scrappin’ with my amazing Adhesive Sisters for a special December Daily event. While the December daily album wouldn’t really suit my life or holiday style, I did fall in love with the idea of a daily album for a month. Since my birthday falls in January, I decided […]

Freebie Friday!

By | November 18, 2011

My oh my, where has the week gone? Maybe it’s being in California where the leaves change year-round, maybe it’s having a job that keeps me busy all the time, or maybe it’s a combination of those + having an active social life… whatever the cause, it seems that the weeks fly by in a […]

Freebie Friday!

By | November 11, 2011

I’ve been working like a dog to crank out doodle pages for an art journal I’m making and in the process, I chose to use the wrong marker. I’ve been using the Pilot Vball BG05 liquid ink pen for many years and really love it for my illustrations. However, I use my Papermate Flair Tip […]

the coolest gift

By | September 6, 2011

For about a month or so, I’ve been working on a labor of love for a staff member: a hand-made journal with weekly prompts and activities. I gave it to her tonight and she loved it, so you finally get to see some of the pages! When I started it, I had no idea what […]
