Journals are a weakness of mine. I have way too many scattered about the house and if I stumble upon a new one in a store that catches my eye with a great feel and design, I often just buy it. Binding books is a passion of artist, Michelle Skiba of Charlotte, North Carolina. As she states, "For me, the making of a blank book is only the beginning of the creative process. I am one thread in the fabric that will continue to unfold as the books fall into the hands and lives of others."
One of my favorite features is the visible stitching. This book, with wood covers antiqued in shades of black and cream, can be custom made for your wedding or special event. Michelle will personalize the book with names and a date, hand stamped on a silver, brass or copper plate. Thread colors and end sheets can also be customized with the colors you desire.
Her wood covers are really special as they are made from cuts of black walnut, cherry, mahogany... sturdy and full of character and natural detail. These are journals to last a lifetime.
Check out Michelle's Etsy shop, Three Trees Bindery when you get a chance to see all of her lovely handwork. Thank Michelle...
