an edition of books

The last couple of weeks I have been delving into my paper stash and counting, cutting, and sorting dozens of stacks for another edition of my pocket and journey books. They are now currently being bound, pressed, and dried and will be ready to mail out later on this week.
These little books are made with so much love. Each is filled with sixty-five different papers foraged papers from all over the world. Tucked in between them are many different envelopes and pockets, for little treasures to be saved forever in.

If you would like one to call your own, they are up for sale in my shop here and here. They usually don't last long, but I should be making another edition up, later this fall as well.

WOW! Thank you to everyone who placed an order for these books. I am a little bit overwhelmed! I have now listed them all as out-of-stock, but I may have some more to add once I've waded through the orders. If you'd like to be notified when I have more available, please send my an email. Thank-you!

If you would like to order a book in another colour then I have listed in my shop, please just let me know. I may be able to make you up a book in another colour. Here now is a chart of my collection of bookcloth:

Which colour would you choose? In the past the robins egg and clover green have been the most popular, but so far this time by far the cherry and cream soda have been the favourites - these sorts of things are always interesting to me!

Hi Tonya, Thankyou! I have tweaked the links and they should be working fine now.

Caley said...

Oh, I would definitely choose the steel blue!

Bianca said...

I love clover, coffee, and steel blue. All of your color choices are beautiful.
Thanks for the art piece post!!

Oooh what lovely books. I think the steel blue or cream soda colours are really great.

Carolyne said...

ooooooo pretty! Cream soda and clover...probably because I am in love with watermelon right now. The clementine and frosting are a close runner up, though. They are lovely!

Kelly said...

I have the robin's egg and it's lovely. I'm really liking the cream soda and clover right now. Beautiful books, Sharilyn.

twoforjoy design said...

I'm not usually a pink kinda gal, but I think I'd have to go for frosting..or mint..or steel blue. I'm not sure I could bring myself to write on the pages, but they're just soooo beautiful (but alas, I'm in the UK too)

Laura said...

Robins egg. Definitely! Where do you get your bookcloth from?

sunny said...

robins egg + clementine. (clementine = 1st choice).

I missed the chance (22 hours later!) to get a pocket book. Please keep me in mind if you get more in stock...

Eucca said...

Hello!
I'm wondering if you'll have any of the dark wood address files soon?
It's been on my list of desired things for a while now, but never seem to catch it in the darker wood...
Thank you!
Cheers

mustard would be a nice new color, but you have a great variety!

jenipa said...

i'm so sad that i didn't get a chance to order a pocket book while they were available! Please put me on your waitlist! My email is jenpark@gmail.com. I love the cream soda color!!

stephanie said...

I'm so sad that I missed the boat on this! I love all the bookcloth colours. :)

I know you get your paper from everywhere, and I was shocked and giddy to recognize that the map on the inner cover of the book in that last photograph (sorry does that make sense?) is of my alma mater (Carleton University in Ottawa ON). :D

Please keep me on your mailing list for future notebooks! (stph.wong@gmail.com)

Your art is inspiring. I would love the Clementine, Robins egg or Cream Soda. I appreciate the simple, yet creative way you are raising your daughter. You are so blessed to be able to stay home with her and savor every moment of her childhood. Thank you for sharing, Kati

I absolutely love these Journey Books. However I have all but given up on ever receiving one. I placed an order in the comments on November 11th 2009, and then sent a reminder email to you on January 10th 2010. To have never heard anything back in almost a year is a more than a little disheartening, especially to see them go on sale again without a word to people who thought they were putting in a pre-order. I love these books, and I love your blog, but please tell me if I need to give up on purchasing a Journey Book (or three, as I requested originally). I can certainly wait until fall or winter for the next batch to come around, but I'd like to please know if there is at least a chance of actually receiving one. Sorry if this sounds harsh, it's just a little frustrating waiting so long for such a beautiful product. :(

Yours,
Lindsay

Thank you for your comments and thoughts, everyone!

Lindsay: I sincerely appologise for causing you any frustration, of course this never would be my intention. If you did not receive an email from me letting you know that I have Journey books available, it is because, somehow, I did not receive an email from you, or somehow it has lost. As I posted several months ago, I did lose my entire computer hard drive this spring, and therefore possibly may have lost your original email, and for this I appologise.

It is also impossible for me to contact you through any comments you have left for me here on this blog, as your profile has not been made public and so therefore I have no way to reach you or know who you are.

Of course, there is always a chance of receiving any product I make - but please make sure that I know who you are, and how I can reach you!

most sincerely,
Sharilyn
