Thanks all!

Lovely! I love books-the way they feel in my hands, the smell,-no "tablets" for me!

I am right there with you! Those things are so cold and "unloveable"!

Thank you very much John & Larissa. It's a labor of love, I won't get rich selling them but at least when I die they won't find me buried in the hundreds of books I made in my lifetime!

HAHA! Gotta love social media! Thank you SO much for the book love. 
PS I thought I had already "liked" on FB but evidentially didn't...I fixed that  ;)

Thank you both  :)

@spearcarrier people use them for different things, as writing journals, sketchbooks, art journals and I have a couple customers that put photos or postcards in them. Them being blank leaves it's use up to the imagination

Newbie here, this is my first post, forgive me if I've done something incorrectly!

Here are a couple of my handmade books. I love the entire process from buying the fabric to picking endpapers, thread colors and binding methods...the sewing of them is great meditation time for me!

Both can be found in my shop:

Hi! My name is Andrea, I live in NE Ohio and I'm a book nerd. I love everything about them which is why I now make them. In June of 2010 I started selling journals, sketchbooks, albums etc. on Etsy, the name of my shop is Blue Highways
I am going to have a go at art/craft shows this year so hopefully I might pick up some tips and hints from other artists that have.
I look forward to being here - thanks for the invite on twitter!
