Printable Pattern Calendar 2021 {Freebie}

I finally realized a project last weekend which I have been thinking about for the past years. As you may remember I usually round up some printable calendar freebies end of November. When I search the net for possible candidates to hang on my wall I always wondered what I would create if I knew how. Well, have a look at my printable pattern calendar 2021 a freebie for you as a way of saying thank you for stopping regularly. And for everyone else stumbling in HI I hope you stick around.

For me it was important to have a calendar you could print in black and white. Not everyone has a color printer and it is also much more environmentally friendly, right? As a freelancer I often need week numbers as clients refer to them quite often. So I did. All patterns were created during my #100daysofcraftaliciouspatterns back in 2016. Ever since this idea is floating around. All of the patterns have a meaning or some sort of inspiration. Would you have guessed some?

Over the summer you could almost forget we are in the middle of a pandemic. Almost. It felt normal and then normalcy and carelessness creeped in. I would like to say I wasn’t part of it but I have to admit I often had to remind myself we are still in the midst. Maybe even just at the beginning. I still didn’t meet many people and if I kept my distance. But things are changing again and so I figured it’s time for a little check-in:

BOOKS I READ IN SEPTEMBER

Another month has passed and we are slowly moving towards the fall season. The books I read in September somehow show that – at least for me. More coziness… My book picks started out a bit bla but towards the end I got better in book picking. I read books that have been on my list and I bought a couple ones as kindle deals but they were not that overwhelming. But see for yourself and maybe there is one in here that catches your eye. Enjoy!

Easy Avocado Dying at home

easy diy avocado dying color samples craftaliciousme seeking creative life

Dying with natural colors is nothing new to me. Every year our Easter eggs are done with onion skins in a deep warm reddish brown color. I love them. I also remember my mother dying clothes with black tea back in the day. Coming across a lovely pinkish shade on Pinterest I was hooked. When I discovered that my white dress shirts had some rose colored stains matching the natural dye color of avocado I had a reason to try. Here is my take on easy avocado dying at home.

First of I ate quite a few avocados. I read in one tutorial that skins and pits can be frozen until needed. That is how I did it. Another lady suggested keeping them in a jar covered with water.

I have not taken any progress photos as I was too lazy and I did it at night. But Louise has done a great job so check out her tutorial as I followed it rather closely.
