It is not uncommon for Etsy sellers to trade items with each other. I'd had a few offers, but it usually was something I already had or didn't need at that time.
However when Jean from the beautiful shop Write Owl messaged me there was no way I could resist.
She makes the most wonderful journals but is also very interested in pottery and sells a selection of that too.
A lot of her work is custom and so was the journal she made me. After asking me what color I wanted I had no idea if the colors I had in mind were doable, sky blueish turqoise with light and dark peach, but she said it was no problem at all. And when it arrived it was even prettier than I imagined.
But: the more owls the better! So I drew my little blog owl in the front as sort of an "ex libris" with my name under it.
Her shop really has something for everyone. Whether you are searching for the perfect gift, just want to spoil yourself or want a book block to put your own cover on, this is the place to be.
Her color combinations are always lovely and even her shop page is so pleasing to the eye.
Here's a little selection of items that can be found in her shop.
She also has a blog in which she writes about her items, other Etsians and currently her "National Novel Writing Month"- endeavor. So if you want to learn more about this seller or maybe want to support her writing for NaNoWriMo you should definitely hop on over there.
