i'm super enamored by kelly's work. i've been a fan for a few years. and i occasionally purchase journals through her. i recently got one of her black small leather bound books. and it's perfection. it's cute and small, with dreamy paper, and printed end pages. i almost don't want to use it in fear of what i use it for not being good enough.
but i wanted to take a post to highlight her work, in hopes that you'll love it as much as i do.

there's something so perfectly simple, and gorgeous about her work. her hand bound books are probably my favorite. i can attest to their quality, as i've had one for a few years, that i still have. and i've toted it everywhere.
