Hi Ruth,
Your work is really beautiful! I’m glad I came across your work through a quick search. Do you offer repair work on old books? I have two old cookbooks from the family, and would love to have them repaired, I could send you pictures, and see if that is something you can do.

Thank you!


Hi Brittany! Regrettably, I don’t have the setup for book repair – you might try searching for “book conservator” or “conservation” in your area, or visiting a library with an archive, and they might be able to steer you in the right direction!


Hi Ruth,
You’re so creative. I really enjoyed seeing your journals. Can it be used for recording memories? I want to make an album of my child.


Hi Umaima! You can write whatever you like inside your journals! many people use them for recording memories of their child! In the US, we call that a “baby book” when a parent records the first year of their child.
