Today is the day! Saga and Haoqi are going on a trip to Astrids home. There they will go further with their adventures. So, from Saturday in a week you will, every week, see a picture of Saga and Haoqi in Astrids house!

The adventures of Saga and Haoqi.

Deze week zijn Saga en Haoqi op wonderlijke wijze op mijn garen beland. Haoqi staat zo hoog dat er van af komen niet meer lukt. Saga is druk aan het bedenken hoe Haoqi er vanaf kan komen. Door de gouden draad neer te gooien is er een trapje gemaakt, nu kunnen ze er rustig vanaf stappen!

The adventures of Saga and Haoqi. It's getting cold outside

"Het is maar goed dat we binnen zijn" zei Saga tegen Haoqi. Op deze dag lagen de druppels van de kou binnen tegen het raam. Maar binnen is het gelukkig lekker warm. "Gaan we wel een keer de kou in?" vroeg Haoqi aan Saga. "Natuurlijk, antwoordde Saga, als jij dat graag wilt. Maar dan zullen we ons eerst moeten voorbereiden!"

The adventures of Saga and Haoqi. That's not a dog!

Saga and Haoqi see a cat in Linda her room, they don't understand what that cat is doing in their personal space. What they don't know, is that it is a photograph of a cat sitting on a window sill. A new project of No Ordinary Tales. Luckily they are not afraid of cats, because they will see a lot more!

The adventures of Saga and Haoqi. From me to you

Last week Saga explained to Haoqi what words are. Since then Haoqi wanted to learn everyting about words and sentences. Here Haoqi picked out one of Linda's designs for Saga.

The adventures of Saga and Haoqi. Making a mess

Today Saga and Haoqi were back on Linda's desk. There they admired all the papers with black images on them. Saga explained to Haoqi that those are words and that words are made up of letters. And if you put several words together you get a sentence. Then Saga explained that because they are drawn by hand it's called hand lettering. And that is what Astrid and Linda use a lot in their work.

Perfect place for inspiration

Once a year we visit the Efteling. An amusement park in Kaatsheuvel, the Netherlands. It's  the perfect place to get away from reality and be inspired. Once you go through the gates at the entrance you enter a fairytale dreamworld. And there you'll stay untill you leave at night, but the feeling doesn't just disappear while you're in your car with all the songs and tunes playing in your head.

The adventures of Saga and Haoqi.

Today Saga and Haoqi went on a new adventure. While walking across a table Saga and Haoqi unknowingly got separated by something big and unexplainable. They just could not figure out how they got separated while still seeing each other. Saga and Haoqi explored and admired the object for quite some time and had a lot of fun doing so.


The adventures of Saga and Haoqi. Who's this guy?

While cleaning out some cupboards Linda found a couple of figurines she collected for her study and placed them all on the cupboard. Saga and Haoqi found this one especially interesting because they're both dogs!

The adventures of Saga and Haoqi. Enjoying the weather.

Today Saga and Haoqi finally arrived at the open door to the balcony after a long walk. Here they could enjoy the lovely weather. I think they are going to spend a lot more time there.
