Something Odd

Rats, I have broken my resolution already - which was to post on my blog at least once per week. I will try to make up for it at some point!

I made an odd little accordion book from a feather mask - this is part of a February challenge with the Trans Canada Etsy Team - the theme being "something odd". Visit the TCET blog and vote for your favorite odd item!

Gold Suede Elkskin




Just showing off one of the small journals currently available in my Etsy shop. I love this gold suede Elkskin leather - this is the end of the hide and it has been hard to find another hide like it - I'm still looking!

Congratulations Rob!

Thank you to everyone who visited my blog and left comments for me during the past week. Last night I numbered all the entries; with the blog comments and facebook comments combined, there were 90 possible winners. I used random.org to pick a number and it selected Rob Ross' number so he's the lucky winner of the weekly planner!

"It's not too late to stay organized in 2011" Giveaway!

So I thought all the weekly planners were dealt with, but I had a sold one returned which was undeliverable and the buyer no longer wants it. So I'm going to give it away to some lucky blog reader or Facebook fan, yay!

Here's how you can get your name into a random draw for this weekly planner:
Tell me what you think of the new product photos in my Etsy shop (check them out here: www.MyHandboundBooks.Etsy.com). Leave your feedback as a comment either
1. Here on my blog or
2. On my Facebook page

Also be sure to leave enough information so that I can contact you if you win. I'll do the random draw on February 14th - this is the planner that you could win!



This weekly planner has a wrap-around leather cover and is bound using a longstitch sewing, visible on the spine. The wrap-around cover is soft honey yellow cowhide leather. There is a leather strap to wrap around. Book size is about 6¼" x 3¾" (or 16cm x 9.5cm). This book contains:
