Rising to the challenge

Last week I promised myself I’d at least participate in the I am the Diva weekly challenge. At the same time, I decided to participate in an ATC swap (Tangle Your Initials), which I’ve never done. So, to make things easier on myself (since I’ve been traveling literally every week for the last month), I […]

Thing 2 learns Zentangle

Coming up for air

I’ve been a bad blogger. And a bad tangler. And actually? I’ve been pretty much bad at everything I’m supposed to be good at–marketing, parenting, self-caring…you name it. Why? Because I’m trying to do it all. At once. Multitasking? It’s a myth. You absolutely canNOT do more than one thing at one time and do […]

For Dusty

For Dusty… This week I’ve been exceptionally sad. One of my kitties, Dusty, passed away at the respectable age of 15.

This may not have been such a challenge except that I’ll have returning students getting black tile kits and new students getting standard kits, but teaching everyone […]

Not My Circus, Not My Monkeys

Not my circus, Not my monkeys. Is that not the best proverb ever (it’s Polish, for the record)??? If I’ve learned nothing else in my 40-something years, its that my circle of influence is not as broad as I’d like, and my circle of control is virtually non-existent. Attempting to control anything beyond the bounds […]

#ArtForHayden

Hayden is still fighting and her parents are still very much needing prayers and love sent her way. The outpouring of love via #ArtForHayden on Instagram and Twitter and Zentangle Prayers for Hayden on Facebook has been humbling, to say the least. Dozens of people have posted artwork of all media (not just Zentangle) and […]

All for Hayden

Friends and readers, along with this week’s challenge entry, I am dedicating this post to Hayden Weiss. Hayden is 3 years old and is fighting for her life after being diagnosed with Reticular Blastoma. I know, #FuckCancer (and this is usually a G-rated blog, but cancer going after a child seems to warrant a bit […]
