Beate Allerton

Hey there, I'm Beate!
If you love all things notebooks, journals and planners then I am so happy to share my passion with you.

I love the way beautiful journals and notebooks can lift your mood, inspire and hold your thoughts, ideas, notes, plans and memories throughout your life. Now that we are all working from home even more than before it is such a simple but lovely pleasure to use beautiful stationery in our everyday lives and home offices.

My drawings and my designs are inspired by the flora and fauna of the local countryside, my travels and my experience of other cultures, especially when archaeology related. I also love designing for kids.

Originally from Germany I have lived in the UK for the past 35 years, had the opportunity to live in Calgary, Canada for a couple of years and travelled to lots of exciting places in the world which feeds my imagination no end. I am now settled in the beautiful countryside of Aberdeenshire in Scotland.

When I'm not designing you can usually find me walking or running, cooking, playing my fiddle, and practising mindful living, which means anything from meditating to journaling and trying to be present in everything I do. I am also a qualified mindfulness teacher.

I sell my designs online on Zazzle, where you have the unique opportunity to fully personalise and customise your chosen product.
