Journal, Handmade, One of a Kind


“Treasure!” is the exclamation sung out by Queenie or Honey Man when a package arrives at the castle. A short time ago whilst wandering around Etsy I happened across a wonderful shop called Making My Rent where the awesome Amber sells the most wonderful handmade journals I’ve seen in a long time. All her journals are handmade, one of a kind, treasures, each with a story of their own and made with love. After an extended period of window shopping each journal I decided on this journal made from an up-cycled, lost and lonely, copy of Where the Wild Things Are.

The front cover pictures our intrepid hero in his Doctor Denton jammies and the back pictures some of the wonderful Wild Things.

The journal is assembled with coptic-stitching which allows the journal to lay flat when open.  An aspect Queenie especially likes for sketching and noting my many flights of fancy into suspended disbelief.

After reveling in the newly opened treasure I added a picture.

And as is the Queenie tradition, I dubbed my wonderful new journal

Amber also trips the light fantastic in blogland.  To view her blog click here.  A little bird told me that she will soon be conducting her first give away.

Have a great day.
Always, Queenie
