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”...

Making of a Zendala

Welp, I’m finally bravely venturing into tangling on the beautiful accordion-fold book I made at a workshop in the spring.  (God willing, it’ll be on display at the Starbucks’ show!)  I decided to do it in a series of Zendalas down the page – probably because I really do love Zendalas.  Here’s one of them in the making: I started out by tracing a lid to get the circle, then dotted it with Genevieve Crabe’s radial template and connected the dots in my own design: Then I paradoxed because, well, I love it.   Bit by bit it grew (kind of like my kids...

Start Your Morning With a Sparkle

I woke up this morning to a little flash outside my window.  Given that my eyesight is horrendous, I really can’t see anything in focus beyond maybe 6-8″ from my face so I had no idea what it was but it caught my attention despite my lack of coffee.  It turned out to be a large drop of dew – or rain from overnight maybe though the pavement was dry – hanging from a perfect green maple leaf.  The leaf swayed and the color danced as the squirrels played in the branches – a glittering welcome to the day. It reminded me of how much beauty there is in the small...

In Search of… Shade

In Search of… Shade

So, it’s about a million degrees here in Connecticut.  Ok, maybe not a million.  Maybe only a paltry few hundred thousand.  What?!  Only 95??!!  That is such a joke.  It was SO not 95 today it’s not funny.  Heck, it’s 9:30 at night and it’s still 82 in my office.  Ugh. But it got me thinking about shade.  Which, when it’s painfully bright and obscenely hot out, is a blessed, blessed thing.  Those 5-10 degrees and not having to squint make all the difference. And so does shading in your tangling.  (HA!  Yeah, it’s not all complaining about the...
