Be well this Holiday Season…

…and have a Happy Thanksgiving. Thank you all for reading along and take the time to check what’s new on my blog. I appreciate it so much. I’m trying to write more letters to friends and family again, so in the evenings, once the kids are in bed and the kitchen is clean, I take […]

Inspired by Fall

It’s so beautiful these days out here in the country! We were so lucky to have pleasant temperatures (and still have) during the past few weeks. It’s such a joy to walk through the backyard and take it all in. It’s hard to keep my hands off of all those colorful leaves and awesome seedpods… […]

Fall is here as well as a new post – finally ;)

Hi everyone, I’m on my way to post regularly again (or at least that’s my plan ;)) We moved back to Indiana this past Summer after living in Sweden for three years. It took some time to readjust, but it seems that everyone has settled now. Our kids had very different feelings about this move […]

Finally: Snow!

…especially my kids have been waiting quite impatiently for the white stuff. Just before Christmas temperatures dropped and we also went on a short trip a little farther north to ski and sled. Lots of snow there! When we came back home, we found everything covered in white as well 🙂 So, naturally, I had to […]

Letter love

Practicing calligraphy and writing letters is the perfect combination 🙂 …and also it’s the perfect excuse to use my bird stamps!!! A few of my birds are now available at  ‘Rubber Dance‘ – go check them out. They have a wonderful collection of rubber stamps. (My first licensed design contract! :))     More snail mail – […]

Back to blog

I haven’t paid too much attention to my blog lately. I blame the Summer break and recent travel. At least I’d like to post a few pictures of some of my art journal pages. If time allows, I will post more over the next few months. If you are active on Instagram, I’d be happy […]

ICAD 2014

There’s still no change here regarding blog posts: they are rare these days… If you like to see more of what I’m up to, just search Instagram (@tangledpen) 😉 Anyway – it’s Summer break here too now and I try to keep my children occupied (in a positive sense). So most of my time is […]

It’s June – really?!

…and it has been a month since I posted the last time!!! This can’t be true… So here at least a few snapshots of some things I did these past few weeks (besides being consumed by the daily grind) I post much more on Instagram these days. Come on over, if you’re on IG 🙂 […]

The Art Journal peek – Documented Life weeks 7 & 8

I’d like to share the spread of weeks 7 and 8 in my little handmade journal. It includes some goodies that I received from my friend Gabriele (her blog is worth a visit! artatag) mostly stamps on tissue paper – the pattern left of the pink birdie (one of my stickers :)) and the pens […]

The Art Journal peek…

Since I am not posting much here on my blog these days (instagram – that’s where I am posting much more), I wanted at least to catch up and show you the spread of week  5 and 6 in my little handmade journal. It includes some tags (from our favorite brand of gingerbread – hmmmm, […]
