Pocket Mirrors!

I’ve added some adorable scalloped pocket mirrors to my shop!

Pocket Mirrors from Pink Loves Brown
Scalloped Pocket Mirrors, $6.50 each, from Pink Loves Brown

There they are with the sketch that inspired the design, which was on the very first page of a new sketch book. Sometimes I actually skip that first page… I want so badly for it to be a good one, that I worry and worry and just leave it blank. This time I was brave because I had been thinking and thinking about scallops, so I knew I’d be happy to see them every time I opened the book to draw. They’re so simple but so cute!

    I’m glad to know other people skip the first page too. I guess I’m not so crazy after all.
    I love the mirrors, the orange and gray one especially!

    I’m a first page skipper too — so much pressure! I’m surprised if I ever get started on the second page of my notebooks! Cute pocket mirrors!

    It’s so nice to know I’m not the only first page skipper!
    Your mirrors, as well as with every thing you do, are just lovely.

    Very cute! The pattern reminds me of snake skin, only in fashion forward colors. ;)

    Count me in as a first-page skipper. I thought I was the only one! There’s just so much pressure for the first page to be fantastic.

    Love the color combos of the mirrors!

    Holy crap, I thought I was the only person that has a psychological block of the first page. I always think of it as a Title Page or a very important Cover Page that needs special treatment, something that, in 10 years when I open it up again, will speak directly to the meaning of the journal I’m holding. I’ll remember it, it’ll encompass and inspire every page within. I build it up in such importance that I become paralyzed to actually do anything on it. So instead of meaning they remain blank, devoid of meaning except for an obvious lack of will and decision on my part when it comes to the first page of journals and sketchbooks.

    Glad to know there is a club of us.

    You’re mirrors are so adorable! :D

    And first page skipper?! Heck, I’ve been known to leave full journals empty because I’m too afraid to mess up one page, LOL!

    I’m in love with the banner up there for the mirrors.

    I prefer notebooks that are spiral bound. Then, when i get anxiety about my sketch I can tear the page out and still have a perfect notebook.

    Count me in the club of keeping a blank first page! I learned that in high school. My teachers always taught us to consider it the title page. Now, I like to write in the date of my first sketch and when I’m done with the whole book I fill in the date for the last sketch.

    Your mirrors are very cute. If I didn’t have so many already I’d pick one up asap!

    Me too! I always skip the first page, wanting it to be really special… funny to hear that there are others out there just like me! ;)

    And of course the mirrors are adorable!

    These are so great! Very creative idea to use the button maker to make a pocket mirror. Love the pattern too. Just found your blog through flickr and have been reading it over the long-weekend and am hooked. Your design style and businesses are impressive & inspirational. Thanks for sharing!
