My Craftroom

My Craftroom

Get ready for the big reveal. Okay, maybe not such a ‘big reveal,’ but for those of you curious…here’s my craftroom! The left picture is my desk, where I do most of my work. (I generally photograph products in a room with more light.) On the right is the shelves behind my desk. As you can see, they’re jam-packed, because I’ve been through a lot of crafty hobbies. There’s a section for everything. Let’s see […]

New custom options + repairs!

New custom options + repairs!

new custom options available! I am pleased to announce that I now offer a wide range of custom options! While I wish I could, the truth is that I simply cannot have every single book out there in my shop in miniature form. I could make hundreds a day and it still wouldn’t be enough. SO I’m giving you guys more control! So I can choose any book I want? Yes! You can choose the book, […]

Pretty packaging!

Pretty packaging!

So what does packaging look like? It has to be small enough to be reasonable, but it has to be sturdy enough to protect the books. So what does that leave us with? I’m pleased to say that the FIRST TEN CUSTOMERS will be receiving these fancy clear plastic boxes for their books. And yes, I did make the bow entirely myself. Took a lot of hot glue, it did. But wait! I ordered a larger […]

Guess how many kinds of adhesive I use?

Guess how many kinds of adhesive I use?

Guess. Seriously. It’s probably more than you think. Just look how tiny the books are! How many kinds could they possibly need? Well, think about the process and how complicated it is. (I’m always calling it a “complicated business.”) Bookbinding is an art (:  Okay, I guess 3. Nope! Keep guessing!  20? Haha, not quite that many. Are you ready for the answer?  Are you really keeping me in suspense over glue?! Ha! Crafters might […]

Custom Fantasy Necklace

Custom Fantasy Necklace

I made this for a friend’s birthday. The model is my other friend Rachel. The friend I made this for, Haley, responded with three books when I asked what her favorites were. She likes sci-fi/fantasy. (I prefer fantasy and high fantasy.) I then made miniatures out of the 3 and added clasps to all of them so she could wear them on the necklace wherever she wanted. Two of the books, The Phantom Tollbooth and […]

Box sets now available!

Box sets now available!

Box sets in miniature? What?! Yes, you read correctly! Not only am I making miniature books, but now boxes to put them in as well. I make these for series, both mini and super mini versions. What’s so special about them? Many things, my friend. Many things. ONE. I design them entirely myself. I go into Microsoft Word or Publisher (who needs complicated Photoshop?) and make a template based on the size of all the books […]

Welcome to the bookshop!

Welcome to the bookshop!

Say hello to the future. Okay, maybe it isn’t earth-shattering, but I believe this is a new thing in the craft world- or at least something not commonly done. I introduce…..miniature bookbinding. Completely hand-bound miniature book charms. Fully customizable. You can write on the pages and tear them out (though this may not be advised; the book will get worn and/or break). As for the measurements? They come in two sizes. Mini: about 1 3/4″ […]
