“In the journal I am at ease.” ~Anais Nin

Kia ora, I'm Guatyen, I make journals and diaries for you to express yourself in the pages. I have been writing in journals since I was a teenager and I think journaling improves our well being and helps us connect to our authentic selves, whether it's through writing, doodling, drawing, collaging or whatever you fancy. It heals, inspires and empowers us through our inner expressions. I hope that many will take up writing again using pen and paper, step away from the digital world for a bit.

I work in my tiny home studio (spare bed room) and love combining fabric and paper to create something that will be loved by others. At the moment I am doing my best to use up old trinkets, beads, findings and recycled, upcycled materials that I sourced from op-shops or given to me by friends and family. Being mindful of my work and being kind to the earth.

Have a browse in my shop, I hope you'll find something you love for yourself or as gifts for your family and friends.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions.
