You can get a map (check "Boneyard Arts Fest 40 North" online for more information) and go from location to location where art will be on display and/or for sale all over the Champaign-Urbana, Illinois area.

This sale IN the bookbindery where I work will feature:

my handmade blank books

my sterling silver hand-forged (hammered) jewelry

and I'll be partnering with:

Lydia Puddicombe who will be selling hand-carved illustrations and prints


Liza Wynette who does amazing illustrations on handmade pottery. 


Come check it out!


There will be snacks!

At this sale, most of my already-finished blank books with a regular price over $50 (which is almost all of them) will be 50% off!





Please visit the "finished books for sale" pages of this site to see everything I have available for immediate purchase.  There may also be a few books that have been recently-completed that appear on the fine blank books Facebook page (check the albums after searching "fine blank books" on Facebook) that do not yet appear on the "finished books for sale" page here.

I ship worldwide, ya'll!

Custom orders always welcome too.  Contact me by e-mail to get the discussion started on your custom order.








Like getting hammered?


If you are a fan of the hammered copper pieces that sometime show up on my book covers, you might like the forged (hammered) sterling silver jewerly that I make.  I will be selling jewelry along with my handmade books at the upcoming events listed above.  I'll have a variety of one-of-a-kind hammered sterling silver pendants and leather wrap bracelets with handmade, forged, sterling silver clasps. 

My jewelry can be found on Etsy by searching the name of my jewelry business:
