Once again I realize I haven’t posted…this time it’s been so long I hardly remember how to use WordPress. Ugh. But I’m still doing art. I’ve branched out from Zentangle to painting, digital design, and some other things. I’ll feature some new things here, but more importantly, I decided to try to get my art […]
I realized recently that I haven’t posted in almost a year. Yeah, I’m busy, whatever. So is everyone else. I certainly could’ve found time to post. Why didn’t I? Uninspired? A little depressed? I have nothing to offer. So today is a quick one – I thought I’d take on a new challenge from I […]
Catch-up post: Permits, Art, and Challenges – with VALOR
The last few weeks are kind of a blur, so while I have been diffusing oils and creating Zentangle tiles for Diva challenges, I haven’t posted. A few highlights to explain why: Thing 2 turned 16 and got his permit, so we’ve been spending a lot of time just driving (eek!)(no, actually, he’s quite natural […]
Oola Molygon — and Mom!
Greetings Zentangle and Oily friends! First, a definition – Oola is a state of awesomeness. It’s living a life that is balanced and growing in seven key areas of health and well-being. It’s unlocking the potential for greatness that lies within each of us. It’s finding true purpose and meaning for your life. I started […]
Tangles and Oils: My zen introvert advantage
I was all set to do a challenge this week and ended up creating my own. I’ve been struggling to think through how to integrate all of my interests and businesses into one cohesive “thing” and realized the answer was sitting right in front of me, literally. My go-to solutions for anxiety and stress fit […]
Zentangle + Essential Oils = Bliss
I’ve been crazy busy with a laundry list of crapola I have to do (including laundry, of course, but also work, house stuff, job stuff, kid stuff, and more) that I haven’t really made time for ME stuff. I know. Make it a priority. Schedule it. I suck at that, you guys. BUT, recently […]
Loving Reticula and Fragments!
It’s cold and VERY rainy today, perfect day to take on another challenge – R/F Part 2- draw a grid (reticulum), in pen–it’s part of the tangle. Then fill in each of the little squares with a design (fragment) but use a design that’s asymmetrical, and alternate the design to make it more complex. So for […]
It’s so good to be ZEN. Again.
Happy Monday on this cold day in the suburbs of Philly! I’ve been very not-zen in recent months, but I had the incredible opportunity to attend ZenAgain, a reunion and workshop with over 200 CZTs from around the globe. Hosted by Rick, Maria, Molly, Martha, and the rest of the amazing Zentangle crew, these two […]
Another AWESOME class at the Lansdale Public Library last night. Zentangle truly draws (no pun intended) the best people. Whether or not you think of yourself as an artist, you CAN do this and find relief from stress and anxiety. Classes are the first Wednesday of each month at 7 PM. Next class is May […]
#Stacked Bijou Challenge
Of course the week I am determined to get back in the swing of doing challenges, the challenge is so INVOLVED. This week, guest blogger (for I am the diva) Jane Reiter, CZT, offered a “Stacked Bijou” challenge in which we use mat board, in successive sizes, stacked beneath a Bijou (2×2″) tile: 3”, 4” 5”, 6”, and […]
