The newest in our prayer journal line, the custom hand painted sketchbook! This lovely Strathmore hardcover sketchbook is the perfect gift for the artist in your life, or for yourself! Sketch out your bible journaling ideas before you put them into your journaling bible, or simply have a space to practice your drawing and hand lettering. I firmly believe we are created in the image of a creative God to do just that - create! We are all artists in his eyes.
Strathmore sketchbooks are renowned for their quality at a student price point, and I use them myself! This is the sketchbook you will be receiving:
I have two customization options for these, full color design, or white design. When you check out you will leave the scripture of your choosing (or any quote you might like, it doesn't need to be scripture), and select from the drop down menu your color choice. Once you purchase the listing we will work together on a color scheme and and any details you would like to include, along with the scripture of your choosing. I will contact you within 24 hours after purchase (usually within minutes, but I am just being safe!) and we can collaborate on the sketchbook to match your vision. These sketchbooks also include free name inscription on the inside cover.
If you have any questions about the process, don't hesitate to contact me before purchase, but please remember that all of the design and collaboration work is done once the purchase has been made.
See our custom bible listing for some ideas of what is possible!

I accept payment through Paypal and with credit cards directly through Etsy. Payment is due at the time of purchase. PayPal is preferred. Checks and money orders are not acceptable forms of payment at this time. Thank you for your understanding!
*IMPORTANT* please make sure you have the correct address listed with your etsy name. I ship to the address listed, and can not be held responsible for lost packages due to incorrect information. Once the package leaves my hands I can not be held responsible for ANY mishap that is the fault of the postal service.
Shipping both domestically and internationally is via the USPS, with the exception of certain large items that are shipped domestically via UPS. Any and all international custom fees or dues are the responsibility of the buyer. All items are packaged carefully (and always with an extra goodie or two!) with as much love as the items themselves! Tracking information is always included, but please remember I have as much control over the USPS and their tracking system as you do!
Individual processing and shipping times are noted in each individual listing. If you need an item by a specific date, please be sure to contact me BEFORE purchase. I will not offer refunds if you purchased an item without first checking the lead time.
When you receive the shipping notification email that means we have printed your label in the The Hipster Housewife studio - the first of many steps to get it out the door! From the time we print your label to the time USPS or UPS posts the first tracking data, your order is in a weird grey area where the computers can't say precisely where on the journey it is. If we were a bigger, fancier company, we would probably call it "processing time."
The weird grey area is not weird or grey, it's our happy office. We are dancing and singing and putting stickers on your packages. We just love you guys so much! Once the order is on its way, the tracking updates. This can take up to 3 business days. If there are extenuating circumstances you will be notified ASAP.
Thank you so much for your patience as we fill your big and small orders with great love. We are so thankful for your role in this ministry!
