Excitement in My Mail Box!


The UPS man brought some magic in the mail today! I went outside to check on the crying kitten and found this package on the porch. Of course, I knew what it contained and I couldn’t wait to rip the package open – carefully rip – because I knew this brand newbook of zentangle was… Continue Reading

Happy Birthday to Me


If you are as old as I am, you probably have some of these hanging around your house. Actually, I had mine stashed in two different places. Covered in dust, lots of dust which I’ve been working on removing. (That Lynyrd Skynyrd record is Freebird. Didn’t notice the title didn’t show until now.) It’s my… Continue Reading

Heading Home (Old News, I’m Home Now)


I am actually typing this Saturday evening. Kali and I just went to see Austenland at the movie theatre. Not being a Jane Austen fan, I thought it was hilarious! I think Kali was offended through most of the first half, especially when I was laughing so loud. Not a serious movie at all. It’s… Continue Reading

Playing With Rollin’

1 Comment

Two nights ago I posted an ATC with a new tangle I’m playing with called rollin’. It started off as part of crescent moon, but then it just kind of took on a mind of its own and turned into this rolling fun thing. It reminded me of Michele Beauchamp’s spiral, so I drew that… Continue Reading

Happy Fall, Y’All

1 Comment

So I am finally done with all the fall ATCs for the swap. This was a really hard one for me, I had trouble finding my niche. So to speak. I finally just gave up on fall designs, and went with fall colors. I’ve been looking over some tangles I don’t use very often, and… Continue Reading



I am working on the ebook. Again. Drawing, designing, experimenting, making step-outs. This particular piece is an ATC that I made for the fall swap. (I just realized – again – that I was supposed to stick with three tangles. Oh well.) I was playing with crescent moon, which turned into that far right slice… Continue Reading

Merely Meer


It’s been a couple days since my last post. I got a message from a friend asking for some artwork, so I’ve been working on that. Diligently. This afternoon, though, I took a little time out to work on some ATCs that I still owe people in the fall ATC swap. I may have mentioned… Continue Reading

Trying to Learn How to Draw


Fair warning – this post might be a little scary. I am trying to learn how to draw. Now, that’s a scary thought! I get told all the time that I draw really well, to which I always respond with, “I can not draw.” Like, not at all! I am taking a class from Dion… Continue Reading

54º This Morning? Let’s Make Some Fall ATCs

1 Comment

I have been having a really hard time getting into this making fall ATCs. Primarily because it’s been in the lower 90’s for the past week or so here in Maryland. This morning when I woke up it was actually cool in the apartment. According to my phone app it was 54º outside. Nice! Those… Continue Reading

Bault – New Tangle from Erin Olson


One of our CZTs – Erin Olson – sponsors the weekly Zendala Dare. She is so creative and for the past couple days Erin has been busy posting new tangles she has created. Here is her pattern bault: I like organic tangles and thought this one would work great with the garden drawings I like… Continue Reading
