Thunderous dark blue with delicate vintage lace I scavenged on my latest trip to London. (on Etsy)

Two days in a row a hot day has been followed by a massive thunder at night. The first night the lightnings and rumblings were few but extremely loud. Last night was more gentle, if a thunder storm can be described gentle. At first it sounded like a kid shaking a big sheet of metal, then like a class room full of kids making thunder sounds, and in the end the teacher joined in with childlike joy. It is strange to view lightnings from the window as the sun is getting up and colouring the clouds with an eerie white.

I've been working on a non-linear notebook system for myself. I can't seem to figure out how to use notebooks effectively so I'm trying something new. If you're interested, I could put together a tutorial of some sort. Maybe I ought to finish my project first and show you some photos so you know what I'm actually talking about...


  1. I love how you used your talent.
    I love you.

  2. Kaija,

    it would be great, if you could talk a little about your notebook system and those things!

    I am also working not with notebooks but with project folders, it is easier for me, to keep track of my projects and what I have to do. And when an idea has not worked in one project I can just put it in the next folder.

    But I am also still not completely happy with it and always curious how other people do it. Show me yours, please!

  3. Wonderful combination of colours and textures! That lace is exquisite.

    (And a tutorial would be appreciated by all of us, I'm sure. Thanks for offering!)

  4. I would love to see a tutorial if you are able!

    Beautiful work!


Please leave a message, I'd love to hear from you.
