The Nib and Quill (, in association with The Artisan Group®, will participate in an exclusive celebrity gift lounge event hosted by GBK Productions, leading up to the MTV Movie Awards telecast. The Gift Lounge will take place on April 8-9, 2016 at an exclusive location in Los Angeles, California.

Founder/maker Kristi Baker’s heirloom quality handcrafted Pocket Journals will be included in The Artisan Group’s celebrity swag bags. The journals measure 2.5” x 3” and are bound with black waxed linen thread. Offering a total of 13 chapters and a hand-braided, waxed linen wrap closure, the journals make creative expression easy with multi-media friendly, 50 lb. acid-free, hand torn paper.

“I’m very excited about gifting my Pocket Journals at GBK’s gift lounge. I think their rustic feel and authenticity will appeal to the MTV Movie Awards crowd,” noted Kristi. “They are also incredibly versatile—I designed them to work as either a leather pocket notebook or a Wedding Vow Book, the perfect size to fit in his pocket to hold his handwritten vows, keeping them safe and close by for his special day. They also makes an amazing groomsmen gift, prayer journal or small personal notebook.”

At the Artisan Group exhibit, The Nib and Quill will have on display two handcrafted 5” x 7” Coptic bound journals, one in Muted Tangerine with gold filigree and a Victorian skeleton key and the other in a “Flower of Life” inspired geometric pattern in primary blue and white.

Says Kristi, “The Muted Tangerine Journal was inspired by an interest in fusing the past with the brightness of youth, and how these two forces can open new expressions of art, love and possibilities. The Flower of Life journal explores the subtext of music—I believe that sacred geometry and music share the concepts and principles that allow us to experience and express elements of the mystic.”

Kristi’s passion is creating journals (vessels) to help capture memories, thoughts and pieces of creation. She handcrafts each piece with care and an attention to detail, with an aspiration to make a piece that will last a life-time and become an heirloom. Materials are hand-selected by Kristi herself, with a focus on using materials and techniques that connect with the past. She remarks, “My journals appeal to old souls that have a love of the hand-written word, have an urge to add to artistic creation and share an appreciation for handcrafted and sustainable works.”

The Nib and Quill’s Piano Journal is a favorite of Pitch Perfect’s Kelley Jakle, who uses it as her personal songwriting book. Harvey Guillen (The Internship) is also a fan, and owns an original Feather Artwork Journal.

The Nib and Quill has participated in GBK’s Luxury Celebrity Gift Lounges for the 2012 Academy Awards, the 2013 Golden Globes, the 2014 and 2015 MTV Movie Awards and the 2014 Primetime Emmys. The company was featured in the Vicksburg Evening Post (Vicksburg, MS) and the Winchester Star (Winchester, VA) following its participation in 2012 Oscars gift lounge. It was also profiled for The Artisan Group’s TAGazine in honor of the 2015 MTV Movie Awards.
