Oh gosh, your work is lovely. Am so glad to have discovered it via Julie and the blog hop. Bookmarked and heading off to explore the rest of your blog.
Happy new year, Kajsa!

Such a great post, and especially interesting to people (like me!) who are thinking about products which are hand-designed, rather than hand-made. I'm also trying very hard to justify a new chopping board right now . . . they're SO lovely, especially the peas. :)

Some days it's impossible to decide whether your pages or your stories are the most wonderful. Let's just say you're exceptionally good at both and I, for one, love coming here to read and look at them. Also, your grandson is utterly adorable (but I'm guessing you already know that)! x

Wonderful. Obviously... Am especially enamoured of (and inspired by) your stitched panorama - a glorious view, and just as beautifully captured. x

Wow! That's the kind of amazing story you'd claim was far-fetched if someone had made it up. ;) And that Julie is definitely a tiny-but-mighty serendipity magnet. You wouldn't believe the trail of coincidences and commonalities we've discovered over the last few years. x

He is oh-so adorable! Hope you're enjoying every minute (and remembering you can sleep for a week when he leaves - or is it just me who does that?!). x

Dear Alexa, I'd love to reciprocate with a comment as lovely and eloquent as those you always leave for me, but just now I am at something of a loss. What I really want to say is 'this is awesome', which is neither eloquent nor particularly lovely. But it is heartfelt, and I do have every intention of taking inspiration from your smart and hugely entertaining post. By which I mean, copying you and doing one of my own very soon (with credit, obviously - isn't that how plagiarism works these days?). Yours (a little) shamefully, Kirsty

Love, love, love your washi-taped planner makeover - it looks fantastic. And also, I know all too well what you mean about too-pretty-to-use notebooks. I have half a store's worth on a shelf in my office, waiting for the *perfect* thing to do with them (and all while my desk is weighed down by scraps of paper, envelopes and old receipts crammed full of notes and sketches which should - obviously - be in a notebook). I should maybe give my therapist a call... ;)
Completely beautiful! The linen plus small amounts of colour/print is perfect, and I love the butterfly-ish triangles, too. Quilts are such a great baby gift, I think, but the fact it's not 'babyish' in any way hopefully means it will be loved and used for a very long time to come. :)

Gorgeous house + images. I love how you've mixed clean and calm white/neutrals with lots of small, coloured details and accessories. It looks beautifully 'collected' and like it really reflects your family. Am well and truly inspired!

I don't scrapbook, but your layouts always make me wish I did. They're beautiful!

These are so, so beautiful! I'm especially smitten by how a relatively small detail - the way the sleeves are finished - gives the two blouses such a different look. Now I just need to convince my friends to start giving birth to girls instead of boys so I have an excuse to buy one...

OK, first Julie and now you - with two such discerning fans, I really do have to plan myself a trip to the Sculpture Park and soon. Although I'm guessing it's even more amazing in person, your layout is beautiful and really does do justice to the atmosphere and spectacle of the place. I might just live without the liquorice ice-cream, though...! x

This looks beautiful - really looking forward to seeing pics of the whole thing. :)

Every bit as much - maybe even enough to make me wish dull, rainy November was almost here! That quilt is especially gorgeous... x

Happy birthday, Mr Alexa. I hope it was happy, as well as so elegantly recorded!

So sorry you had such a rough day, Alexa, and hope things will pick up from here on in. It's so interesting to see how you're journalling the good and not-so-good side by side as a record of this point in your life (lives). I don't know if writing it down makes things easier (the old getting it off your chest thing?), but I'm guessing it will at least be fascinating to look back on when you're further down the line. I also love that picture of your mum and dad in the last layout. Is it wrong to call parents adorable (because I think they are)?! x
Beautiful photos, great approach to the journalling (it seems very Monday-ish somehow!) and a beautiful, clean layout as ever. x

Geeeenius! This is too perfect, and not least because Smash books are rarer than sunshine here in the UK. Thanks so much for sharing such a great tutorial - has jumped right to the front of my 'must make soon' queue. :)

Such a great collection of images, and I love that you're both pilots who write a blog together. This is my first visit here, and I'm even more keen to look around and find out a bit more now I know what you do (is that very shallow of me?!). Those WW2 photos are amazing, too - I saw a documentary a few months ago about the female pilots who flew planes between airfields and military bases here in the UK during the war, and it was incredible. Quite a few of them were still alive (obviously very old by now) and spoke really movingly about their experiences. To realise what they did and how much they must have experienced during their lifetime was properly awe-inspiring.

This is so lovely, and a gorgeous picture of your mum too, Alexa. Wishing you the very best in settling in to your new routines and hoping they include many more happy days and memories like this one. x

Thanks so much for featuring this (along with my little illustration!), Tamar - I know Anke has worked really hard to pull everything together, and I'm excited to see the finished results, too. Am also glad to have found your blog, and am off know to find out what Teapot is all about... Thanks again. x
