It's finally here!

Yes, Rhubarb & Ella the shop is finally open for business. You can find me on Etsy, with four sketchbooks to start off with, although if I'd had the foresight to note down a few measurements this afternoon I'd have been able to put up a few more sketchbooks too... You'll have to forgive me: I'm new to this game and have only just worked out how the Etsy system hangs together. Give me a bit more time and I'll be a bit more fluent about gathering the necessary information!

Initially I tried fancy photos with props: trays of coloured pencils, fountain pens, ink and bookmarks, augmented with potted orchids on an antique writing table... but sadly the results weren't good and so I resorted this afternoon to the tried and tested ingredients of white paper and sunlight! I think the photos are much better... what do you think?


  1. beautiful books, perfectly made!!!
    As for the photography I agree with you; this is THE best way to show/photograph them. Best of luck in the Etsy chapter!

  2. lovely! I'm with anna - simple is best when it comes to photographing arty/crafty/booky things

    good luck with etsy (may you be inundated!)

  3. Yes, I think the photography is perfect. All the best with Etsy, they should just march out the door.

  4. great photos; where's your etsy link?
