This journal is beautiful! I’m giving it as a gift and it was exactly what I wanted. I was worried about the customizations being misunderstood but the shop did a fabulous job. Shipping took 5-6 weeks, mostly on the US end. Things shipped quickly from the shop and arrived in the US within the week. Customs in NY took forever and then the journal went across the US before coming back to the east coast after several weeks. I contacted the shop for help and they were very communicative, providing as much information as they could on their end and helpful guidance for trying to track the package. Not sure if shipping in the US is normally this bad or if the pandemic played a role, but it was worth the wait! I highly recommend their products and craftsmanship.
