I am trying to work on some homework assignments for an online class I’m taking – getting further and further behind. (And it’s only week two.) BUT – I want to post something every day – if I can. I started this last night. It’s in my CZT field journal. I am trying to have… Continue Reading

String 022

This week’s string challenge was a lot of fun! I tangled two tile – this was my second. I am getting behind on homework in an online class, but I wanted to get something posted today.  This was the pattern Linda gave us at Tangle Patterns. (Imagine my tile upside-down.) The string originated from Margaret… Continue Reading

Go Do Your Homework


“Go do your homework” takes on a whole new meaning! This week I started a water color pencil class that Dion Dior is teaching! I am beyond excited! I have been following Dion’s blog for a few months now. I love how she uses rich, vibrant colors – bringing them to life in her drawing…. Continue Reading

Diva Challenge #90 – String Theory


It’s week number 90 at the Diva’s Challenge. Laura ┬átook us back to Tangle Patterns’ very first string challenge and asked us to try that out. This is what our string looked like.

A Tangled Web


 There are patterns all around us. In our every day life, so many things we come into contact with can become a new tangle for tomorrow. Tangled patterns, tangled webs. Beautiful designs, a beautiful Creator. A life – patterned by God. Made beautiful by Him when we follow the patterns He has designed for us.

Treasured Tangles

This year I am teaching a Zentangle┬« project during their 4-H time. I set up a facebook page for them called Treasured Tangles. Above is the cover photo I… Continue Reading

Celtic Challenge #7


Judy’s Celtic Challenge to us last week was to have fun! She provided us the following template. I added a little paradox to the central portion and shaded with a copic marker. The simple lines of the zendala reminded me of a flower, so I turned sections into leaves and the remaining sections into petals. … Continue Reading
