It's time for the weekly "it's a string thing" challenge! Number 248 was to draw a monotangle using the Zentangle ® Original Tangle, Drupe. I love Drupe but wanted to find a new take on an old favorite! Enter Eni Oken's new lesson called MicroTangling. I enjoyed this lesson and the techniques it teaches very... Continue Reading →

It's been quiet....too quiet. I haven't posted for a couple of months. Last year, between July 4th and August 14th, I lost 3 dear people to suicide.
