Weehaw!

Weehaw!

I am feeling particularly accomplished this weekend, I must say.  I canned for the first time and 4 pints of salsa now sit enticingly in my larder (note to self:  must design tangled jar labels!!).  I got my fall schedule all set and the website updated with the schedule (check out the schedule here) and the late summer newsletter written and sent out (if you’re not the list, you can sign up on my FB page here)!  Whew! I have been down for much of the last month with acute asthmatic bronchitis. Now, some folks are susceptible to every stomach bug that comes through, spaghetti sauce...

Have Tangle Kit, Will Travel.. Will You?

I don’t wait well.  I never have.  I’m not a person who sits still well and I have less patience than my 4 year old.  Sadly, it seems I’ve been doing a lot of waiting lately.  I don’t know about you but I get a little stressed out waiting.  Problem is, I keep thinking about all I could be doing other than waiting but I can’t do because I’m waiting… and waiting… and waiting.  Let’s see, stray time that I can’t do anything else during, stress, Zentangle addict teacher… In the “turn that frown upside down”...

“Kelley2, Kelley2, where have you been??”

“Kelley2, Kelley2, where have you been??”

I’ve been to London to visit the Queen “Kelley2, Kelley2, what did you there?” I tangled a little mouse under a chair… Ok, not really.  But I did go to Portland, Maine, for TangleU – a by-CZTs for CZTs continuing education event that was phenomenal. “Um, Kelley, you’ve been unblogging way before that.” Picky, picky!   But, sadly, true.  It was a winter of viruses for my kids and my “day job” has been both a day job and a night job for the last few months.  I’ve been taking pictures of work, I’ve been storing ideas...

The Times (and Policies), They Are A’Changing

Hello, hello! So, it’s been a crazy winter of challenges.  First, my mixer died, then my phone starting acting up, then my computer died (abruptly and with the complete and total loss of my Zentangle email list), then all my kids started puking, we breathed for a week, then they all starting puking again and my husband got it too, then none of 4 registered attendees came to the jewelry class and only one let me know.  Which brings us to now.  Here’s hoping the spring is a brighter, more cheerful place! That last one – the jewelry class one – hit hard.  No matter...

New Year’s Challenge: Journaling

New Year’s Challenge:  Journaling

Ok, maybe I’m having a midlife crisis, or maybe it’s just that I think life in the static leads to becoming old early — an aside on that:  I firmly believe that, while we have no choice over aging physically and becoming elderly eventually God willing, we are fully in control over whether we get old — at any rate, my word for the new year is “stretch”.   I’ve been thinking lately how easy it is to fall into those ruts and, sooner or later, the ruts in the mud solidify into stone making escaping  then that much more difficult.  So, the word is...

Fun New Project …

Posted by on Dec 19, 2013 in Blog, Waxing Eloquent | 0 comments

that also helps children in Haiti! My friend (and fellow CZT) Cris Letourneau (yes, the author of the fabulous shading manual, Made in the Shade!) has just released a new ebook about tangling 3D Stars.  It’s only $5.50 and all the proceeds go toward food for the children at St. Vincent Orphanage in Haiti, who has lost its major food donor and is struggling to feed even a couple meals a day to its kids. So, give yourself a fun project and help feed children.  It’s a win-win, for sure. Here’s the...
