Etsy Saturdays: II


In support of the handmade revolution, I bring you Etsy Saturdays!  I will highlight a fun, new shop every week, and I hope you will stop over to see their merchandise or find something else you love while you're there.  To see all Etsy Saturdays, click here

This week's find is Forrest Concepts.  I was looking for handmade books in honor of my sister, who is an artist and newly interested in book binding, and I stumbled across these handmade journals.

I love that Forrest Concepts recycles old books that would have otherwise been discarded, and instead of just chopping off the covers and calling it a day, they also include selected pages from the books to mix in with blank pages.

Here are some highlights from their journal selection:

I love this one.  It made me think of family that recently moved to Winnipeg ...

I was instantly drawn to this one because of the yellow submarine, but the German and the blue cat really hooked me!

This one is especially great if your name is Nora.

And I love the back cover.

This shop is also based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, so if you are a Michigander who wants to "buy local" when you buy handmade, this is the place for you!
