Please visit my blog for the latest news on my books, marbling and life.
Welcome to Losing Her Marbles & Granan’s Books.
I love making books and that has lead into learning other related activities, marbling paper, making boxes and other paper crafts. This site is divided into sections devoted to each of my obsessions. Please browse around and enjoy. I sell my books, cards and boxes at my shop, LosingHerMarbles on Etsy.
I started making books over 30 years ago after taking a course at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Due to family and work responsibilities, it was never more than a casual hobby until I retired.
Now that I am retired, I finally have the time and energy to play. In the pages of this site, I hope to share my passions for books, bookmaking and paper. I hope you will join me and enjoy.
Books, many types and styles:
Some of my hand-marbled papers showing a variety of patterns and colorways.
And more fun stuff — Jacob’s ladders, Treasure Towers, Portfolios & Notepads and some different books!
Here’s a sample of my items that are for sale on Etsy. Clicking on any of the photos will take you to my shop on Etsy.
