Thank You!

Thirty-one days. Tangle All Around the World published 31 days ago and it is available worldwide on Amazon. When a new book is released, Amazon makes it eligible for the hot new release list for 31 days. I am so excited to announce for the 31 day span – Tangle All Around the World was #1 all but two days. It was #2 on those two days.

It is so exciting for our book to be finishing up the time period at the number one position! And that is only possible because of YOU. Each YOU who purchased a copy – thank you from the bottom of my heart! YOU made my dream come true and YOU made the dream of all 50 tangle artists represented in this book come true. YOU did that.

If you haven’t ordered your copy yet, I hope you will. 453 tangle patterns with complete step outs and many have art to go with them. Fifty artists from all around the world participated to make this happen.

Some pages look like this . . .

. . . some pages look more like this. There are patterns for all levels of tanglers from beginners to advanced. Tangle All Around the World is available here.

Hopefully tomorrow I will be back to making art. It’s been a rough couple days here. Mark is doing super with his new hip. Walking every day at Walmart. Haha! That is what they assigned him for therapy. Walking on flat surfaces. We need to start leaving our wallets in the car on these ‘therapy’ trips. Yesterday, our older dog Kodi left us. And that’s hard. We had Kodi for 15 years, all we have are super memories with him. He loved the snow so much – I am going to miss him this winter. Today we took Belle to the vet and I swear she could smell Kodi there from yesterday. She kept trying to get into the room they put Kodi to sleep in. I had to go sit in the car and cry for awhile. Broke my heart. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. All we have planned for tomorrow is a trip to the dump. Yay. And Walmart. You know – for therapy.

  1. Oh Alice, I’m so sorry to hear about Kodi. I hope he is in heaven running around and chasing all the pretty girl dogs.

    I’m so excited that all the work you put into the book is paying off. Being #1 for so long is amazing!

    Love you!

    • thank you for always being there for me, Christine, like a sister you are. are you ready to move on to the next book?

  2. Glad Mark is doing well. Sorry to hear about Kodi. We just lost our Chubbs, a 13 year old bulldog. And we, too, are heartbroken. Congrats on the book. Well done!

    • I’m sorry, Beth, it is hard to lose a pet. I am not even a dog person but I loved Kodi. good memories – I know you have yours with Chubbs. hugs, dear friend!

  3. I am both happy & sad for you, Alice. ❤ I too have experienced losing a sweet, old dog … there’s no way to escape the pain if you loved him. He was lucky to be yours & you were lucky to have him in your family. My sympathy for the empty spot he has left you.
    At the same time, I am so happy for your success with Tangle All Around the World! What a great feeling it must be to have all your hard work appreciated and enjoyed by so many tanglers!! Congratulations. 👏👏👏

  15. Sorry to hear about Kodi – take care of yourselves whilst you get back on an even keel. Good to hear Mark is doing so well & very well done with that book for I know you put so much work into it. I know Walmart is therapy – but leaving the wallet behind might be a good idea, else you may end up needing ‘therapy’ for the therapy.
