Hobonichi Techo Journaling

I think Mother Nature is playing a cruel
trick. Instead of the old saying that March
comes "in like a lion, out like a lamb," 
we've had exactly the opposite here in
Ohio, USA!

Coming home from vacation was a rude 
awakening. One day (where I was) in Florida
it was 78 degrees, and Ohio had 75 degrees!

The Hobonichi Challenge for March 
features Spring themes...

Hence the dandelions.

I do tend to draw my coffee cups a lot.
One day the challenge was Earl Grey
tea. Not sure why...but it works for
T day! Visit Bleubeard and Elizabeth
to see what goodies may
be shared this week!

I've always wanted to have a
Mad Tea Party...

outside beneath the cottonwoods, with
lots of odd tea cups and fun decorations.

Do you think the Mad Hatter would
make an appearance? 

Hope your day is filled with sunshine
and creativity!


  1. Good afternoon, your journal pages are just so beautiful-I enjoy seeing what new pages you are creating. strange weather here in missouri-we skipped winter pretty much all season since friday though very cold and killing off everything that has blossoms on it-so not good for the fruit.
    Happy T day Kathy

  2. Your journal pages are fantastic, as always, they are by far the best ones I get to see on my blog rounds. Sorry the weather is nor behaving as you would like it, it has to get better sooner or later. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  3. Oh my gosh! Fantastic pages Dianne! Amazing!
    Happy T-Day!

  4. going thru your planner makes me so happy- brilliant illustrations Dianne! Boy you sure have been busy too. Yes, the March weather can be so crazy-like the nor'easter that dumped so much snow between last night and today!! :(:( Now's to dig everything out which is going to be a long, hard process... happy T day and hope things are now settled in your neck of the woods.

  5. Wow, I really enjoyed reading your journal pages, there was so much to catch up on today :-) . Your drawings are spectacular, firstly the lion, then the little blue bird, the fishes, the spring quote, the Mad Hatter and the 🐞 ladybug . I love the thought of filling your mug with sunshine too! Wishing you a Happy T Day! J :-)

  6. I so enjoy looking at your journal pages. March weather seems to be all turned around everywhere, cold one day hot the next. I agree it would be great fun to have a Mad Hatter Tea Party in the garden. Maybe I will have to do that with all the GKids.

  7. Fabulous journal pages, they are always filled with wonderful drawings and illustrations of what is happening in your day. I was drawn to the ones with the Mad Hatter, great fun.
    Happy T day

  8. Oh yes. I went to New Mexico where it is usually warmer than New Hampshire and it was also the opposite. Now I'm home its been cold and today the blizzard. What is this? Loving your journal. Spring flowers-I wish and so they make me happy seeing your sketches. The mad hatter is fantastic. Perfect for T day. Hugs-erika

  9. Oh how great these pages are! You seem to be having some rare weather! We aren't getting much sun but don't seem to be having the really dreadful weather that some of the US is getting! Happy T Day! Chrisx

  10. You Know i absolutely adore your journals Dianne! You should check out Vanessa Valencias blog.... every year she hosts a Mad Tea Party... I'm trying to remember just when it is and i can't but you might like to join that.. its blog hop type of thing... great fun! Happy happy T day!! Stay warm!! Hugs! deb

  11. Sorry I'm late getting here. This time change has me out of sorts.

    March came in like a lion in KS, too. It's been cold and windy, but no moisture, so lots of fires in over half the state. Only one person died, but over 5500 cattle died or had to be put down from smoke inhalation. Lots of homes destroyed, too. One entire town lost most of the homes and businesses.

    You've been having a LOT of potluck and family dinners since you got home. So glad you are eating so well.

    What did you think of Victoria? Did you get to see all eight episodes? I loved the clothes and the architecture. It all looked and felt so authentic.

    I'd love to have a Mad Hatter Tea Party, but I probably wouldn't be able to participate, because I don't have a hat. I do have a clock and a cat, though (grin).

    Thanks for sharing the latest in your journal with us for T this Tuesday. And here's to a Mad Hatter Tea Party, too.

  12. Always love your pages! You are such a talented sketch artist. :)

  13. march is mostly friendly here so far, but that could Change every day. i do not dare to plant in the garden before mid may, until then we can have night frosts.
    love your mad hatter and of course dr seuss!!! wonderful journaling as always!
    happy belated t-day!

  14. Oh I so enjoy reading your journal and look at the drawings and see how many steps you have managed. (I don't get to 10.000 every days but most days). I'd love to have a Mad Hatter's tea party. I wonder if Johnny Depp would come if I invited him. That would be super!
    Happy belated T-Day,

  15. I love, love, love seeing your Techno journal pages. Your Mad Hatter is fabulous!!! I'm just noticing how many different hand-lettered fonts you use and yet they look wonderful together. Some rules are meant to be broken ;-)

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  16. Oh Dianne I am your fan.I love your pages. So sweet!It's been raining since friday and fall starts tomorrow. As we say here it is the waters of march closing summer.Have a magical week!Happy belated T Day!
