texas envy

My February 7-9 page has “D” patterns. I enjoyed all of them, but had to laugh at ‘dillo. I used to live in Texas and saw plenty of armadillos (even had one upstage an outdoor wedding).

patterns: dro’t, dragonair, and ‘dillo
materials: tangle*a*day calendar, black micron, and pencil

Sure wish I was in Texas now with all their sunshine. I bet folks are already starting in on their gardens. I’m still under snow and won’t be able to start any seeds indoors for another month or so. Yup, I have a bad case of Texas envy.

tangle a sunflower

A few days back I mentioned Botanical Interests, an amazing seed company. They have many organic and heirloom seeds and the seed packages are lovely. I think that’s what drew me to them at first. Each package is beautifully illustrated and has a truckload of information.

Their seed packages are so lovely, people use them for different art projects. Here’s a link to a garden journal where they have decoupaged some of seed illustrations to the cover.

I also got an itch to tangle one of their coloring pages. I think I’m on a sunflower binge.

patterns: jilli, kuke, bilt, amaze, jalousie, maryhill,
fescue, dl nebula, footlites, and hepme
materials: coloring page, black micron, and pencil


truly amazing coffee

So a friend on mine hands me a cup of coffee and it’s amazing. I ask her where she got it and she said though the mail. The surprise is, the coffee company is in the same small town where I live ~ Chamokane Creek Trading Co. (I’m going to have to pop in and buy a mess of coffee). If you love good coffee, you owe it to yourself to try some (I had a cup of Launch Pad).

And here is my February 4-6 page with patterns starting with “B”.

patterns: b’twined, bublz, and birds on a wire

run wild, run free

During January I was getting to know my new tangle*a*day calendar. I did monotangles that mostly stayed in their own box.

For February I am using tangle patterns that start with the same letter (this page uses the letter R) and that escape their boxes from time to time. Run wild, run free little patterns!

patterns: ruflz, riverstones, and roscoe
materials: tangle*a*day calendar, black micron, white charcoal pencil, and pencil

I so enjoy having a little something to tangle each day.

This time of year I am fairly housebound under a blanket of snow. It is pretty, but after a few months I long for Spring and gardening. I’m already buying seeds and planning my garden. Each year I experiment with something a little new (or new to me). This year I will add in some eggplant (my husband makes a very good eggplant lasagna) and sunflowers for the chickens.

My favorite seed catalog is Botanical Interests (they have free downloadable coloring books too!).

done and done

Well, I was t-h-i-s close to being done with January. So, what the heck, I plowed through and finished it up. Looking forward to more tangling in February.
