How You Got Here


I am so thrilled you are here!

My name is Nicole Bukle and I am your Designer, Sewist, and Friend.

I help you discover your own Perfect Mamabooclay Journal Cover.

You do not have to look and keep searching to find a cover to suit your style and taste or find the ideal gift for a loved one. 

Before creating MamaBooclay Designs, my bible became almost unusable because the “leather” became icky and sticky. I was hard pressed to find a bible case that represented me.

Then after purchasing some generic book covers, I felt like I needed to finally utilize my sewing machines and make my own cover. Then I made covers for my family and friends. They encouraged me to sell my creations online because the store covers were somewhat drab and ordinary.

I decided to set out and create a quality-based, book cover for the most appreciative journal users. It turns out, the road was slightly more difficult than I imagined. Finding a formula to make the best fit for all types of bibles, book, and journals was challenging and searching for the best materials to use was difficult in a small town.

But when I released my first products, the response was absolutely astonishing! We now sell all around the US, UK, and Australia!


“Mamabooclay?! Why? What does that mean? “

My name is Nicole Bukle. I am a mama (to five girls – quite shocking to some) and oddly my last name is really hard to pronounce, you can say its missing a “c.” However, I’ve heard so many variations to this name, its almost unbelievable, but one of my favorite wrong ways to pronounce it is “Boo-clay.” Somehow it stuck, especially with my husband’s coworkers. “How’s Mama Boo-clay?” or “Is that Mama Boo-clay’s favorite recipe?”

And that’s the meaning behind my name.

A little about my non-biz self:

I was born in Texas and raised in South Carolina, a southern blood. Currently reside in Arizona and love it. I am a proud wife to my hubs and a mommy to 5 beautiful daughters. I spent some time in the Army and a short career supporting the Army. Got some degrees and happily left it all to be home with my babies.
