You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear

But you can make some journals in which to write your Dreams and Hare Brained Schemes out of years of studio detritus:

• a pile of old acrylic life-class sketches
• sample packs from paper manufacturers
• a huge calendar from a printer
• linocuts that nearly but didn't quite work

All of these will be for sale when Magic Cochin's Emporium goes on the road to the Pick'nMix Makers' Market in Holt, North Norfolk on Saturday 11th June.

If there are any journals left over they'll be available
from Magic Cochin's Emporium later this month.



  1. what a good idea ! Hope there's some left ! Good Luck at the market .Hope it goes well !

  2. neat! hope you enjoy the market.

  3. I love these journals. Each one unique with a wonderful cover design and loads of inspiring coloured papers!

  4. Good luck Celia. I predict a 'sell out' on the book front! Lesley

  5. Lovely journals, what a great idea. Good luck at the market, hope you have a wonderful day.

  6. Celia, this might interest you
    All about Gwen Raverat, who lived in your corner. Well, sort-of!

  7. Thanks for the encouraging comments - I'm enjoying working with Mme Defarge (la guillotine) - she's been merrily chopping up the paper :-)

    Dinahmow thanks for the link - yes indeed 'Period Piece' is essential reading if you live in Cambridge.
    I can recommend the Broughton House Gallery too
