Ms. Shipman,
I received the journal you made for me.  Just wanted to let you know that it is exactly what I wanted and that the craftsmanship is superb.  I first saw your work when I visited Orcas Island last year and have wanted one of your journals ever since.  This one is beautiful and I will enjoy filling the pages. Thanks so much. Heath

Hi Susie -
I've received the journal, and it's breathtaking! I'm so pleased with everything about it.  It's also wonderful that you used butterfly end sheets - I've already starting using it (of course!) and will carry
it with me everywhere. Thanks again, your journals are absolutely beyond compare! Lisa

Hi -
I've been searching for just the right leather journal, and I came across your website.  Your journals are absolutely beautiful, and they're exactly what I'm looking for in terms of quality and craftsmanship.Julie

Just returned home from a holiday vacation to find the photo album that you sent and I adore it!  I wouldn't possibly think of having one from anyone but you. Thanks so much for the craftsmanship, and quality, and beauty of this piece of art.  It's precious. Lisa

Dear Susie,  I gave it to my brother and he was thrilled.  You do absolutely beautiful work. Barbara

Dear Susie,
I LOVE the little blue book made especially for my motherless niece SO much. It is soft, and sad, and beautiful, and it feels like the pages are full of hope and possibility.

Thank you for helping me to give such a perfect gift. I know my sister-in-law, who so loved beautiful things, would be -- or is --delighted. Love, River

I just wanted to thank you.
I bought one of your Journals (soft red leather, w/external binding twine) for my son for Christmas.  He is extremely critical of everything in life (notice I didn't’t say discriminating) but he was “blown away” by your Journal and was very happy to receive it as a Christmas present.  Additionally, he was happy that I knew him well enough to know he would like something like that.
I know I was happy to have the ability to be able to recognize something of quality when I saw it and realize that it would be perfect for someone like my son.  I hope you are happy to have the creative ability to produce something like that.
I hope my relating to you his pleasure in receiving one of your handmade Journals as a gift gives you some small measure of satisfaction and pride.
Once again, I know that he will enjoy it each time he opens it, and I thank you for that! Cliff

I would love to hear how you and your book are doing! Keep in touch.
