Trellis, a New Tangle


Almost time for the weekend and The 100 Day Project is in full swing! I’ve totally lost track of what day it is but we are in the third week. I thought maybe you’d like to try a new pattern for the project this weekend. So – here is Trellis! I named it trellis because… Continue Reading

B&W ATCs From Austria


Last month I participated in an ATC swap in ATC Trades and Jams. The theme was black and white. I posted my ATCs here and a commenter asked me to show you what my swap partner sent to me. As a refresher, here are the ATCs I sent out. Anything goes as long as it… Continue Reading

Week 2 of The 100 Day Project


The second week of The 100 Day Project is a done deal and it’s time to move on to week number three.

I Tried TranZending


Last night I was working with some new product, playing around seeing what the pens would do. I’m not ready to give up on this particular pen, but I did not like how it worked on my tile. Let me show you. I’m up to my eyeballs in The 100 Day Project, trying to stay… Continue Reading

What a Difference a Week Makes


Northern Maine. The land where it snows for seven months of the year. Harsh weather, strong winds, and even stronger people. I have found Mainers to be loving, fiercely protective of each other, accepting and encouraging, caring and friendly. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to live. But this whole snow thing does… Continue Reading

This is a Tile from Hahnemühle. These tiles are so awesome! They take color, they take wet color, they are perfect for… Continue Reading

Unconventional ATCs


How’s that for a confusing topic? And a confusing focus image? Hahahaha! This was a really tough assignment for me! ATC Trades and Jams is currently doing a swap – our assignment was to make two unconventional ATCs to trade. Unconventional as in using items we find around our home. Not to go out and… Continue Reading

ATC Coins Headed to Canada


It is swap time over on Facebook in ATC Trades and Jams. Coins specifically and the only requirement – other than size – is that they have either a ribbon or a piece of metal on them. Sounded easy enough. Coins for trade are 2.5″ in diameter. Some time ago I purchased a 2.5″ circle… Continue Reading

Week One, The 100 Day Project


The 100 Day Project can be a little intimidating, a little daunting, a little overwhelming. But it can also be fun, be rewarding, bring a feeling of accomplishment. And you may need to remind me of that in about a month. Hahahahahahah! But! Week one is a done deal, a thank-goodness-i-am-not-behind-yet kind of moment and… Continue Reading

String Time! is an every Thursday event in my Facebook group Tangle All Around. I provide the weekly prompts on Saturday but Thursday is the day I remind them about the string for the week. We also focus on 7 tangle patterns, sketchbook practice and a tangle technique each week but my favorite is the… Continue Reading
