New Workshop!

Posted by on Oct 31, 2012 in Blog, Waxing Eloquent | 0 comments

Or, rather, new workshop section! A reminder that there is a Practical Tangling workshop on Saturday from 1-4.  We are going to tangle such cool cards – including ones that also form a frame for school pictures – you need to join this workshop! BUT… if you’re saying to yourself, “Well, phoo!  Too bad it’s Saturday afternoon not Saturday evening!”, you’re in luck!  I’m going to be holding a second section of this Workshop in the evening – 8:30 (post kid-bedtime!) – late!  We’ll have lots of fun creating great...

Bronchitis, and Calendars, and Hurricanes – Oh, my!

Posted by on Oct 29, 2012 in Blog, Waxing Eloquent | 0 comments

Yes, that horrendous cold turned into bronchitis for me and walking pneumonia for my middlie.  Fortunately, zithromax has done its thing for both of us and we’re no longer contagious and are relatively functional again (give or take a few hacking fits).  Had a couple wonderful classes in the meantime – the talent my students have but don’t know they have is always amazing!!

I realized after my students left the other day that, while I remembered to get a shot of the mosaic, I’d forgotten a couple of important parts of the Zentangle ritual: signing our tiles and holding them at arms length.  While I will be reaching out to each of them directly on this, I figured I’d talk about it here too because talking is fun! 😉  Ok, seriously, because the ritual is important. When we sign our tiles, we take ownership of our work.  Now, most of us, myself included, are a bit embarrassed to sign our work.  Why?  Because...

June is Busting Out All Over…

And here it is! 🙂 In other news, I started the second of this fall’s three Intro to Zentangle series yesterday – a class including just 3 people but really cool people (including my mom!).  It constantly amazes me how much we, as CZTs, learn from our students and how much our students learn from each other.  Everyone – everyone – has something to contribute. I did want to clarify one thing as well as I’ve gotten a couple calls on this:  A series of 3 classes generally runs $50 for the whole series plus $7.50 for materials for the whole series – which...
