Of Schools and Classes, Prayers and Molasses

First off, I finally got the winter class schedule up!  Check the Upcoming Events Tab or click HERE. So, yeah, it’s winter.  How the heck that happened, I’m not even sure.  I swear it was still August the last time I looked out the window.  And I’m running about as fast as molasses in said winter so my vast apologies about the gaps in posting.  I have so much to share that I hope January’s calmer so I can. I think one reason the last couple weeks have just zoomed isn’t just the holidays.  The tragic murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School really hit me...

Let it Flow! Let it Flow! Let it Flow!

Ok, I feel better now – sent this version off to the printer today.  To me, this feels a lot less forced and free-er, not to mention more holiday appropriate! In other news, look for new dates coming soon: new Intro to Zentangle series, a Zentangle Beyond the Basics series, a 3 class Tangling with color series, and workshops in tangling white on black, tangling focusing more on the meditative, prayerful side, and tangling in the round (Zendalas). Now, all I need to do is get these back and 150 of them written, addressed, and sent out!  Want one?  Drop me your address in the...

I Can’t Figure Out How to Spell It But I Need It

I’ve been breaking one of the cardinal rules of Zentangle lately and, y’know, it’s just not working for me.  I’m trying to tangle a design for my Christmas card and I think I’m just trying too hard.  I’m trying to plan too much, working overly diligently at making it try to fit my vision rather than to just let Zentangle happen. Y’see, that’s one of the often-overlooked beauties of Zentangle – just let it happen.  When I do that, beautiful things happen.  When I try to control it… yeah, not so much. As I’ve been fighting...

Looking the Other Direction

So, I’ve finally had some time to play with my own tangling just for me… not for any particularly project but just to relax and expand my own knowledge and, man, it felt good.  I love creating for just about any reason but creating for no reason at all but self-impetus is in a special category all its own. I decided to play with white on black and, er, color on black…  For some reason, my Gelly Roll pen this time was much less globby than it’s been in the past.  Maybe I’ve used enough of it up or maybe I stored it the wrong way… whatever it was, it...
