Our One-Year Anniversary Celebration Begins NOW with Special Gifts for Early Orders!


Hello, Travelers!

I have so many exciting things to share with you today. We're celebrating a full year of creating your leather notebooks, and I can hardly believe it. Thank you for supporting me and allowing me to do this creative and happy work!

There are new products to share with you and sale prices through next Monday, and we'll get to all that soon, but first...

As a tiny token of my appreciation, I've assembled some gifts for you from other artisans and makers whom I adore. The first 20 notebook orders in this sale will automatically have these "party favors" added to their shipments. Get a sneak peek at what's inside the goodie bags in this video.



PLUS! As part of the anniversary celebration, an extra gift (for everyone, not just the first 20 orders) is that you can shop at JA Photography & Design and get a 20% discount on all letter art and notecards from now through Sept. 10th. This is a gift from Jenn just for my dear travelers, so use the code "redpen" at checkout to stock up your stationery drawer or spell out some art for your walls.

On to the new product news!

Our collaboration with The Perpetual You has been so joyful and I'm delighted to finally release these butterflies into the world. They're available ONLY through The Perpetual You, so visit the new marketplace and take a look at these and other items from makers across the country; consider it your dose of beauty for the day.

New at is a collection of tasting journals. We're starting off with a trio to please the wine, coffee, and beer enthusiasts in your life. Normally our notebooks ship empty, but this line includes tasting guides from as well as a Field Notes insert so it's ready to use (or gift!) right out of the box. Click through for all the details and to choose your favorite; they're going to be $55 each but through Monday, I'm introducing them at just $45.

The next announcement isn't a new product of its own, but a new way that you can tweak certain notebooks to be a little bit different. If you like the look of natural leather and the patina it develops over time, you're going to LOVE this option!

Instead of having a dyed leather notebook cover with an undyed initial or state outline, you can now invert the State Lines or Spell It Out designs to create an undyed notebook with a dyed design. Shop for your notebook the way you normally would and make all your color and size selections, and then add this item to your cart to tell me to invert your design.


We've recently added two new designs to the Black Spot collection and all four will be discounted through Monday so you can save $10 per notebook. Have you noticed the new color option on the Cathedral Roses design? It's a striking effect, and so much fun to paint in by hand.


And finally, the Globetrotter notebooks will each be $5 off through Monday. Let me know which phrase you want on your cover!


We're also restocked on zipper pouches in all sizes and Tomoe River inserts so you can stuff your new notebooks with everything you need to stay organized.

I want to remind you that through at least the end of the year, when you buy a Fleur de Lis or Louisiana State Lines notebook, $10 will be donated to recovery efforts in Baton Rouge. Thank you for helping to support my adopted hometown!

It's my delight to create special books to tell your story; thank you for sticking with me this year, and for bearing with me to the end of this long post. ;-) You're appreciated more than you know.

Travel light,
