For you crafty types - I had to find something to do with my free time so I’ve help my Mum build an online store for her wonderful handcrafted notebooks. https://joymakesbooks.co.uk

I have been hand making books for almost 3 years, having moved down to Devon after a long career in nursing in Oxford. I live on Dartmoor with my husband and two Jack Russell terriers. I have always loved stationery and went on a course to learn bookbinding skills. My friends and family loved my books and encouraged me to make more and I have been selling them at craft fairs and markets.
Mum hard at work.

She normally sells at local markets, craft fairs and the like - but given the current situation I helped her to start making the move online.

The notebooks are all handmade and bound - and she’s also open to special requests if there is something unique you’d like - just got in touch via the contact form.
