Leather journal tied with a red-orange ribbonJenni Bick Custom Journals

Jenni Bick is a haven for stationery lovers. The shop sells paper, journals, and writing implements of all kinds. However, it has a focus on custom and leather journals. The leather-bound journals are gorgeous. They feel hefty when I pick them up and put me in the mindset of medieval monasteries or JRR Tolkien. Most of the journals are filled with blank paper, but the ones made at the Jenni Bick workshop have an added layer of whimsy. These contain multicolored paper and often close with ribbons. It gives them an added fairy-like feel. If you have a hankering for journals, scrapbooks, or penmanship, Jenni Bick is the place to go.
