New Year’s Shop Update

It’s been a busy few months, between starting a new job, hosting family at my home, and making and selling for the holidays. But after a few restful weeks filled with naps and tea and reading, I’m finally back into the swing of making new items. I’ve even managed to update my Etsy shop, which had gone neglected for much too long. Have a gander at some of the new items in the shop:

Introducing: LP Mini Binders

I’m so excited to share this sneek peek of my newest product: Mini-binders made from vinyl LPs! Aren’t these adorable?

LP Mini Binder

Ta Da – the new LP Mini Binder!

These beauties are made with a 1/2″ binder ring, which can hold approximately 100 sheets of 5.5″ X 8.5″ (half letter-size) paper. This standard size means that many accessories (such as the Martha Stewart Home Office™ products: zipper pouches, business card holders, etc.) fit perfectly inside this binder. Neat-o!

The front cover is made from the actual vinyl LP, whereas the cardboard album sleeve is used for the back cover. Included are also three cardboard dividers made from different album sleeves, as well as 60 sheets of paper: 20 blank pages, 20 pages of  a “Things I Should Really Get Done” checklist, and 20 pages of lined paper.

Now you can be the hippest, most organized person in your entire office building!

Of course, the mini binder would also look great as a scrapbook album or notebook – just sayin’…

Be sure to check out the shop for the full list of LP mini binders that are currently available.

Make It Big

Yesterday I posted a few new items in my Etsy shop, which had been sadly neglected. I’ve been having a great time these past few weekends making a dozen or so LP journals, including these beauties:

We Are The World

WHAM!

WHAM!

Imagine my thrill when I received a message from someone wanting to feature my WHAM! LP journal on her 80s-themed blog!

One of the reasons I love making LP journals is because of the nostalgia – especially when it comes to vinyl records I listened to during the 80s: Duran Duran, WHAM!, A-ha, Bon Jovi, Prince… Even though I now cringe whenever I see legwarmers, Aqua-Net hair, and fuchsia lipstick and eyeshadow, those were the days.

Introducing: My Etsy Shop!

I finally (!) got my act together created my very own Etsy shop. I’ve actually had the shop for a while, but hadn’t posted anything to it except for a single, lonely tutorial. I have just spent all morning uploading the following handmade books:
