Very sweet photo and, my goodness, you do get around, the two of you :). Your garden looks lovely ... and many congratulations on doing that exercise.
I love the page of Mia's birthday especially. You have such a knack for shape and colour. Gosh, is she really going to be 9?

Oh gosh, what a visual feast of very important and delightful photos, Karen. The ones of Sarah are just lovely - her seriousness really underlines the solemnity of her call and response. You have been very busy to get these pages made!

That's a clever pairing - the delicacy of the blooms really shows up in your sharp shots.
I always love looking at your pages and these are no exception. What a cute shot of Caleb at the nativity pagent practice, and that Big Sister Time is very sweet. So sorry you have been unwell :(. I like the calendar with the family photo especially.

Thinking of you, Gail, with all those appointments - and, arrgh!, hospital parking is dire here too. And that's a little anxious-making about the cruise :(. Crossing fingers for you ...

Joining in with you, Honoré; those of us in Europe have reason to be grateful to our cousins across the Atlantic - for in serving their country, they have often served ours too ...

That sounds and looks like a really helpful way of extending your engagement with Better Than Before. And I am intrigued that you had the wisdom within yourself when you connected with your thoughts and feelings - looking inwards is sometimes more helpful that looking outwards!
What a sweetheart - and such stunning eyes ...

Gosh, Honoré, I think you have covered all the possible bases here with this very sage advice. I've read books that don't contain as much as this!
You look wonderful! Isn't it amazing how much a haircut improves our mood :). I am intrigued by the grey sheepskin-looking strap across your shoulder - is this part of the seat belt? Hot and humid? What's not to like! I'd swap it for our 50F and north winds any day :).

Many congratulations! What a lovely photo - clever angle. Wishing Christian every success ...

Very lovely ... The contrast of the dark and light is very striking.
What a wonderful holiday/break! All of that lovely food and accommodation and creativity too? Heaven! And I am so excited by the mention of fabric Moleskin journals ...
Hi Paul and thank-you :). The ticket was an advance one - the journey has yet to be made, and I am afraid there'll be no time for any art or design, alas!

You have clearly had a lovely time, and your use of the new papers really shows off the collection.

And my favourite is that second one - I can see so many uses for that die! The little bird looks wonderful tied on like this ...

So glad to read that things are going well for you, and I admire your energy in working on all those photos - that's a great one of you!

There's a lot of careful work gone into this, Karen - I love that split curve and the white shape behind your pretty butterfly. Isn't it funny how we hold out on something and then finally give in? I did the same with a Kindle book for about a week and wish I'd bought it straightway and saved myself a week's worth of resisting!

You are steaming ahead! I like the design for the food truck card, and naturally Skylar steals the show :). Lovely to include plenty of photos of a happy occasion like this - I like the way there's lots of background in because that's what will really situate them in time in years to come.

Hello Gail, and well done on getting through all of that, and hoping that your own home and bed, and newl;y-minted cook (!) will be keeping you settled and happier. Continuing to think of you warmly, xx alexa

Now that's nifty - and it really makes your pretty pansies pop. I can feel a google coming on :).

These pages made me happy just to look at them! I must have missed the parade - how wonderful (and what a lovely man!) - and the market looks like it provided you all with good things. I really like the sound of that museum - I think I could get lost there quite easily. Your bright, white style just showcases all this happiness so well.

These would be lovely to see peeping up under your own tree next year, wouldn't they! So luminous ...

This sounds just spectacular, Honoré. My Mum and I went to a UK Quilters' Exhibition years ago and the quality of design and work that goes into every quilt I have ever seen amazes me. This one is so striking - it needs a wall, not a bed :).
