A new year is a great time to assess how life is going and what might need to change. This happens in my personal life each year, but for the first time I am turning this lens to my work life. For some time now I have been making items... Continue reading

2014 was a great year for me both personally and professionally. Personally, it was a big year as we welcomed our second child in July. Professionally, I achieved many of the goals I had set for myself this year, took on numerous custom projects and my journals are now available... Continue reading

This fall I was contacted regarding preserving a family Bible. The client said that it wasn't a particularly fancy Bible, but she had a sentimental attachment to it and wanted to present it to her son. I love bringing old books back to life, but even more so when the... Continue reading
Things have been quiet here on the blog, but that is only because work in the studio has been so busy. I started back from maternity leave in late September and have had one cool project after the other since then. I can't wait to share photos of everything that... Continue reading
In early July we welcomed our second son to the Stoneburner family. He has been amazing and such an easy baby that I have decided to reopen the shop now. All items in the shop are ready to ship. Custom orders will be accepted beginning later in the fall. Thank... Continue reading

Today the other part of my preservation supplies order arrived - clamshell boxes! Maybe it's an indication of my nerdiness, but I got so excited for these to arrive. They ship flat and then you fold them up to make a box with a lid that nestles over the bottom.... Continue reading

I have been trying to post this entry since Monday, when I was foiled by 404 Page Not Found screens (something I feel like I haven't seen since the '90s). It has been a busy week here in the studio, so I wanted to share some updates. Progress on the... Continue reading
Not much to show this week - just ordering supplies and fulfilling a few orders from the shop. Check in next week when I might have processed collections to show, but will definitely have photos of a fun new custom journal. Continue reading

This week I worked on preserving my postcard collection. I began collecting postcards when I was five and my family took a trip to Florida. Since then I have collected about 200 more cards and still actively add to this collection. Below is just a small selection of cards. Clockwise... Continue reading
I am happy to announce that this summer we will be welcoming our second son into the Stoneburner home! In preparation for this event, I wanted to let all my clients know the schedule for both the Etsy shop and custom work over the next few months. June 15: Etsy... Continue reading

Week three in my preservation project focused on my personal journals. Between high school, college and a few years post-college, I have amassed about a dozen journals and datebooks that record all kinds of tales, both hilarious and mundane. Below is by far my favorite journal - Big Red. I... Continue reading
This past week in my preservation work I finished collecting all of my photographs into one place, sorted them by time period and counted them all up. Seeing them all in one place, in one stack made me realize that I don't have quite as many as I thought last... Continue reading

I realized an important point during this first week of organizing my personal archive: I have a lot of stuff. A lot more than I thought was packed into those boxes and containers I showed you last week. So I decided to begin with my photograph collection this week. To... Continue reading

Each month, in addition to custom orders, I try to work on one project that is just for fun or meant to challenge me. This month I decided my project would be to organize and preserve my personal archives. The picture below is (shamefully) the current state of the paper-based... Continue reading

I am committed to using every little piece of paper that comes into my studio and thought I'd share my process for doing so. To create the custom photograph album shown above and mentioned here in January, I cut 20 x 7 inch sections from a large 20 x 26... Continue reading

One final goal I've set myself for 2014 is to have one fun project a month. Here's my project for January: Barrel of Monkeys Photograph Album. The album is made to fit forty four-by-six inch photographs and uses as pages thick cotton paper to support the extra weight of the... Continue reading

As I mentioned in my previous post, one of my goals for this year is to create more ready to ship cases for the shop. My other major goal is to create more one-of-a-kind books and albums that will stretch my skills and design aesthetic. Shortly after I set this... Continue reading
