Hello dear Maja-fans,
Welcome to another exciting challange on the blog.

Today the Swedish west coast has offered us some really great weather. Clear blue sky, lots of sun and sparkling frost, just wonderful!
All inspired by that we’ve made you a winterly Mood board…

MB-December17

[a board used by designers on which samples of various colours and textures are mounted to help in deciding which elements complement each other]

We are using mood boards for our challenges. We truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design. You are free to interpret the mood boards in any way you’d like. They are supposed to set you in an inspirational mood without too much controlling. We would like you to be inspired by the poems, words and photos. They are not given rules, they are just there as inspiration. However – we highly recommend you to follow the theme.. Feel free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the colour scheme.

We will pick a winner and present it here on the blog December 25th.

Hi there..!

Thanks for stopping by the Maja blog today.
Christmas is closing in, and all the preparations has started, at least if I talk about myself. 😉 It’s really a lovely time a year, all though the Swedish winter weather is kind of schizophrenic at this point *LOL*. The other day it was a complete winter wonderland outside and now the snow is totally gone and the birds are singing again. I wish for the snow to arrive by Christmas again, meanwhile, I’m enjoying all the fantastic Christmas inspiration on the Maja blog and all the amazing entries we have received this month. ♥ I want to share them all with you today. Enjoy..!

November’s mood board challenge

Hi & welcome to the blog today!

Here in the south of Sweden it’s starting to get chilly outside – so the quilted, warm jacket has been brought out from the wardrobe to help me keep warm these days. But I totally love it..! It’s time for coziness! The cold outside, the darkness – in a lovely contrast of the warmth inside, lighted candles and cozy blankets in the sofa. It sets me in the right, comfy mood and I’m starting to get prepared for Christmas and winter..! Have you started with your Christmas cards yet..?

Let us get inspired by a brand new mood board;
