Happy 9th Blogiversary!

Today is the ninth anniversary of the day I started this blog – woohoo!

Since I did it last year, I once again had to look up the traditional and modern anniversary gifts for year nine. Here’s what I found:

  • Traditional: Pottery/Willow
  • Modern: Leather

Leather? Really? Too easy.

Instead of going for the obvious (I’m looking at you Green 16), I decided to get myself something a bit unexpected. I have long wanted to get something from Shanna Leino, so I went for it – a stainless steel Kelm Folder with a leather sheath (named for book artist Daniel Kelm).

A lovely little leather flourish at the flat end This folder is so beautiful. And it feels awesome on your face. Not that I put it on my face. 

Yes I did. It feels really good on your face.

This thing has muscle. It pretty much folds and scores the crap out of everything.

If you’re interested in getting one for yourself, you best start following Shanna on Instagram – she’ll let you know when she lists new items in her shop. And these things sell fast, so be sure to keep your eyes open!

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
