Memo pockets for Etsy

A couple of years ago I got a moleskine memo pockets and I just love it to organize all the little notes and papers, stamps and business cards that usually lie around on my desk. As I wrote in my first post, I always collected beautiful blank books, which I never used because I wanted to keep it for some special occassion or purpose. So in difference to that, I love the memo pockets because I could start using it right away and I could take everything out anytime and put other things inside as often as I want.

So a few months ago I started to make my own memo pockets and I bound them in all my favorite patterned papers and fabrics. I just added the first series to my etsy shop a couple of days ago.

Finally, a blog

Well, I’ve been thinking about starting a blog several times in the last years, but never really knew what to write about. But now I think I finally found something…

Since I can remember as a kid I have painted and crafted. I was crazy about colors and glue. And I can still remember the first time in kindergarden I got scissors in my hands. Back then all my clothes were stained with paint. I took lots of art classes during school and after I finished I wanted to go into graphics design, so I went to art school. Though I quit after a year, because I just didn’t enjoy designing “under pressure”.

After that I studied media engineering and didn’t really do much art/craft things for a long time. But several months ago I’ve started crafting again and discovered all these papers, scribbling pads, acrylic paints, cutters… – I always kept them, although lots of the paints had dried it was great to go through all those things. I’ve tried lots of things, since I found interest again. I did some sewing and woodcrafting, then I bought this terrific book on bookbinding and like everything one needs for bookbinding and I got really totally hooked.

I’ve always been crazy about paper and beautiful patterns and I had this addiction on collecting beautiful blank books (without ever actually using Post veröffentlichen them). So this is what I’m planning to blog about: wonderful patterns and paper products.
