Hello there!  I’ll write an About Me page in a day or two but, for now, let me say my name is Kelley Kelly (yes, it really is my name :-) ), I’m a newly minted Certified Zentangle® Teacher (CZT9), and am beyond delighted to share this method of relaxation, focus, and beautiful creation with the world!

I started the practice of Zentangle at a time in my life when stressors (2 cases of cancer in my family, 3 small children, extreme professional challenges) seemed to be taking me over.  I swear, I think my stomach acid was trying to eat me from the inside out!  How Zentangle helped.  Oh, how it helped.  You’ll notice that I said I started the “practice” of Zentangle.  Yes, like yoga or meditation (both of which are an apt comparison), Zentangle is a practice.  Being a tremendously Type-A person, very little can calm me as this does.  And it’s less caloric than booze or chocolate!

I’ll be listing workshops I’m giving (um, as soon as I figure that part out) and will be offering the Zentangle products (if you’re a paper fanatic, as I am, you neeeed the official tiles, let me tell you!) (um, as soon as I figure that out) as well as showing examples of my own work, demonstrations of various tangle patterns.  You can find a handy link to subscribe to this blog at the upper right.  So, sit back, and enjoy the ride.

      Hi Hilary! It’s not you – my site went funky about a year ago and it lost my subscription widget and I can’t figure out how to get it back in!!
