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

An Umble Sad Panda

I had so much more planned for this week’s post but I just don’t have it in me. As it turns out, this week’s Diva challenge was Umble, which I tackled last week for the Colours of the Rainbow challenge. So, this week I went for Zentangle-inspired art incorporating Umble and friends in this sad […]

Umbly yours, from NYC

This week I took a one-day hiatus from the whirl and twirl of corporate life for a day-trip to NYC. Since I live relatively close (north of Philadelphia) and my big sister lives there, I have been to NY a zillion times. But, I haven’t done the “tourist” thing since I was a kid. Since […]

Beads of Courage

Beads of Courage

This week’s challenge from Laura Harms (I am the Diva) is inspired by her family’s participation in Beads of Courage, a program that supports kids with chronic or life threatening illnesses and their families. Kids get beads to support their courage for each needle stick, hospital stays, doctor appointments, surgeries and more. Normally I check […]
