the Story of The Three Little Pigs" with her wonderful well bound books! Let's find out a bit more about her...
Tell us a bit about yourself ?
My name is Laurel. I've lived in the Twin Cities for almost 15 years. Ten of those years were spent working in food co-ops buying and selling organic produce. I presently share my home with a senior dog and a rotating population of foster cats and kittens.
Vegan or Vegetarian? How long?
I was vegetarian for 18 years before becoming vegan three years ago.
Tell us about what you sell on Etsy?
I make handbound journals, photograph albums, sketchbooks, and boxes. My favorite part of this process is making my own bookcloth. I love fabric and don't like to be limited by what's available commercially in the way of bookcloth.

When you are not working on your shop, what do you do?
I love the Fields of Flowers Feedsack Journal! What inspires you?
I love vintage feedsack cloth and have a collection of it that I've acquired over the years. I frequently dip into it when I'm making bookcloth. Each piece tells a story. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover, so to speak!

I have a standby favorite casserole. It's macaroni and cashew cheeze. I add green olives before putting it into the oven.
Where else can we find you?
I consign journals at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts in Minneapolis. I try to do at least one show each year as well. Etsy is my sole on-line venue.
Thanks for being part of team and all your wonderful work on etsy and off!! Check out Laurel's fantastic work at Straw House Books
