Hello, Long time no post, huh… For the last week or so, I have been making prints of my drawings.  Not an easy task, but I think I did a fairly good job of it.  I sent the  color work to my Dad’s shop  and my SIL is making the color prints for me as well as my business cards, brochures and even some presentation stuff.  It’s so great to come from a family of printers…hee, hee and I am so grateful for their help..Because it would have cost me a fortune that I didn’t have.  In return, I promised  to show them how to Zentangle.  But I will also make them little Zen-Art packets that they can take home.  I hope they will be pleased. 

   Also, I just wanted to let you in on a great offer.  I subscribe to the Strathmore newsletter. It’s an awesome newsletter.  Annnyway, they are offering FOR FREE a visual journal workshop series and if you want to sign up (click here) .  They give you a supply list and everything.  Now, don’t plan on seeing any of my journal here, but I may surprise you:)  If I get really brave.  

Be Well and Happy!


This Zentangle reminds me of the Alien movie for some reason, I think it’s the tubes…It also has a Celtic vibe to it too.  Pretty Cool, huh?  You know I’m just going to have to draw a bigger one.

I have been doing pretty well with my creative resolutions.   I made some curtains for my bathroom.  Our windows are kinda small and I was able to buy one panel, cut it in half  to make a set of curtains.  I think this should count as refashioning too. 

 Also, I’m beading a necklace.  It has one focal bead and many strands of tube beads.  I’ll post my results later on.   As for the art?  I’m pressing on.  I have an old  building on my drawing board, but it’s a slow go.    Drawing landscapes and buildings are still so new to me that I get a little lost, but it’s very challenging so it keeps me interested:)

Well, I guess that’s about it. 

Be Well and Happy!

I hope this post finds everyone safe and full of turkey!  This Zentangle is made with just a few patterns.  You can’t believe the self-control it took not to add just one more here or one more there.  I just love all those crazy little things.  I cut out a bunch of 3.5 x 3.5 paper to draw these on and I have no idea what to do with them all.  I think they would make some pretty cool coasters if I could figure out how to waterproof them. I would laminate them, but I don’t think that the lamination would keep the water out after a couple of uses. 

I hope you have a creative day!

 I don’t know what the heck this is….It started out to be a zentangle and ended up being some kind of  hippy chick flower power thingamagig.  I think it’s pretty cute even though it’s a little cartoony.  This was about all I have time for today.  This creative everyday is a lot of fun, but I’ve been letting a lot of chores slide.  I’m fine with not doing the house work, but we do like to eat so I guess I have at least go to the grocery store.   I hate shopping for groceries!

I hope everyone has a very creative day!

   This Zentangle was supposed to look like fabric, but most of the spaces look  like stripped clam shells.  I didn’t like it at first, but I kinda do now, so I decided that this is AEDM for today. 

   This past weekend was our annual shopping trip.  My mom, sisters, aunt, cousin and  I go every year.  I didn’t get to go last year so it was extra fun for me.  Our trips consists of hitting the malls all day and after we are done shopping we treat ourselves to a big steak dinner.  Then we go back to the room to digest, then wake up and do it again.  I’m sore from all the walking and my feet hurt but I was very productive and managed to finish my Christmas shopping  and extra early too.  Yay ME! 

I hope everyone enjoys their creative day.. and thank you for commenting on my last post and I will be visiting you today too:)

This morning I decided to draw a Zentangle for AEDM (Art Every Day Month).  Being in this AEDM group has given me the opportunity to see some pretty diverse stuff by some pretty awesome artists.  I have to admit coming up with something to post everyday isn’t easy, but it’s a lot of fun seeing what everyone comes up with and I can’t wait to see more:)

 When I went to my art/craft room I had such a cute little surprise waiting for me.  It’s a little present from my one and only masterpiece.

 Have a great creative Wednesday!

Be Well and Happy!
