Bloomin' Hobonichi Techo

Joining the gang for T Tuesday
over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's...
little coffee cups show up on
quite a few of the pages in
my Hobonichi Techo, which
qualifies as "sharing a beverage."

Drawings of birds continue
throughout January...

and of course a little doodle for
Chinese New Year.

Fun poem that I found about
the pelican.

The Tennessee 'branch' of the family
made a super quick visit over the 
weekend to attend a wedding.
So great to see them, even
for a short time!

I am loving the amaryllis that I
received for Christmas from a
friend and co-worker! It grows
and changes quite rapidly when
the buds appear.

Hope you are finding some
wonderful color in your day!


  1. Such beautiful pages, there is so much to see and enjoy :-). Your Chinese New Year is wonderful and it must be fun to watch your lovely red ameryllis grow and bloom :-). I think you have provided me with so much beauty, colour and light today, thank you! Happy T Day! J :-)

  2. I am loving my amaryllis, too. Lovely journal pages, my faves are the birds and cups of coffee. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  3. Oh Wow, what a feast of awesome journal pages to look at. Your drawings all look fantastic. Happy T day

  4. I am so impressed with how much fine sketching you get in each day along with your written entries-a beautiful way to record the days. Happy T day!

  5. Oh Dianne! What a treat this is! Once again you have made the most wonderful pages! I remember the pelican rhyme as it used to make me laugh! Hope your cough gets better soon! Hugs, Chrisx

  6. I SO enjoy reading your journal and seeing all the lovely art you create each day. I can't believe the birds. You make them look REAL. Your amaryllis is beautiful. You and Valerie must both know how to grow them properly. BTW, I agree with you on the blue jays.

    Thanks for sharing your journal pages with the colorful art and cute coffee cups with us for T this late Tuesday evening. Sorry I'm late.

  11. Color certainly is welcome in these bleak days of winter.
    Your pages are full to the brim with wonderful renderings of your doings. The pelican poem is funny and all of your bird drawings are fab!
    Happy February to you dear Dianne oxo

  12. So much to look at and end up with smiles on your charming calendar pages. There's the cardinal which always make me think of my folks. The Neuschwanstein castle drawing brought back a happy memory from my visit in high school a very, very, long time ago. My mother used to have a flock of amyrillis. Belated T Day wishes and have a Happy Hump Day
