MTV Movie Awards 2016

Adrienne Bailon at MTV movie awards with small skeleton key journal

It was such a pleasure being able to display and gift my journals at the GBK MTV Movie Awards again this year. Things are finally calming down a bit since then, and I would like to share the celebrity photos that I have received.

First up is the amazing Adrienne Bailon. My daughter was a huge fan of the musical group The Cheetah Girls, and Adrienne was one of the members. She is now known as one of the hosts for ‘The Real’ day time talk show.

And last but not least, we have Dre Davis, from “The Pretty Little Liars”. I am obsessed with this show, so you know that I was thrilled to see her posing with my journals.Kristi_Dre Davis

I am so grateful to The Artisan Group for giving me the opportunity to participate in another amazing event.

A Moment to Share

Ginnifer Goodwin responds moment to share vintage gifts wax stamp scroll period journal

I have a few quiet moments and would like to take the time to share. As many of you may know, I was recently selected to be one of six unique artisans to be featured in The Artisan Group’s TAGazine for the 2015 GBK’s MTV Movie Awards Celebrity Gift Lounge. Needless to say, I was shocked and completely honored to have been one of the 6 chosen.

It really made me stop and think about my work and how inspired I truly am by what I do and how I want my books to inspire you, as well. My rustic guest books, journals, and special event books, just to name a few, are created to inspire others to document their history. I want people to be able to share and capture their precious memories, birth announcements, artwork, or their everyday childhood memories. And I painstakingly sew my books with care to ensure they will last a lifetime, creating heirloom quality as I sew. sewing

Handmade journals with a vintage feel

Each journal page is hand torn to create a special vintage feel, which I am known for. Authentic skeleton keys are added to remind us all of the times gone by. I seriously get excited just thinking about my journals and what they really mean to me. My packaging and presentation is just as important to me as the book itself. I gift wrap every journal as if I am receiving it myself.

The attention to detail is not forgotten here! I include little vintage inspired goodies along with extra journal paper to test your pens. Often I use fountain pens and I personally like to have a test sheet, just in case. I really want my customers to have an enjoyable experience when they purchase from The Nib and Quill. vintage gifts

It brings me great joy knowing that I can pass along my books to my children. And I can only hope that my customers will feel the same way. So, whatever you decide to fill your Nib and Quill journals with, just know that they were created with love and care in mind. I know that it will show, from my craftsmanship to my packaging. Thanks for letting me share with you today!

And the Journal goes to Ryan Gosling~

Ryan Gosling leather pocket Journal

It has been a little bit since I have written last. I promise to stay more in touch! The Artisan Group just gifted to none other than Celebrity Ryan Gosling, and I am honored to announce that I was one of the artisans selected to be involved.

I wanted something very manly, so leather was my choice. I found a beautiful rugged tan leather to use and I created a chunky leather journal with a braided waxed linen wrap for the closure.  And I was able to have enough leather to create the exact journal three times. So, I have a few in the shop available for purchase.

They will not last long, so hurry. Only two left! It is small enough to fit in a guy’s hand and rugged enough to show it off! Plus, Ryan Gosling has one too! Ahh, pinch me! I just gifted to Ryan Gosling…. And no, I didn’t write my phone number inside of it. My husband checked.

And We’re Off

new labels The Nib and Quill New Hampshire handmade journals

I am over the moon to announce that my journals will be included in the Celebrity Swag Bags featured at the GBK’s Oscars Gift Lounge. My labels are in and the deadline is getting closer and closer… so much to do! Life moves very fast with the three children and their activities. My oldest son is busy driving here and there, having recently obtained his license. My young lady is busy being a star in the school show choir. And let’s be frank: a large amount of my mom energy is expended just trying to keep my youngest out of the dog’s water bowl! Any who, here is a sneak peek at my labels.

I think that I have the perfect ribbon in mind to wrap around the gift boxes (Thanks Kiki!) Kids are asleep… deep breath… let’s start making little journals!
