I went to a handmade craft fair this weekend, and discovered a new world of journals made from vintage library books. The ones that I bought — for holiday gifts, if I can bear to part with them — include the original pocket for the library check-out card. Oh my, they are so sweet! I purchased my journals from Moe O’Hara, recycle artist extraordinaire from Burlington, Vermont, and her attention to detail and quality seems very high. She also makes upcycled journals from Monopoly, Scrabble and Chutes & Ladders board games. The journals range from $15 – $22 each. Check out her “wee books” also — teensy journals with covers made from Monopoly cards and the like. You can keep your shopping list on Park Place. Moe’s etsy shop is pretty wiped out — but I am sure if you email her, she can help you out with any last-minute holiday shopping requests.
