So Much Happening.


So it’s been a really busy summer.  We traveled for almost a month, seeing more of the Beautiful U.S.A.  I think we were home for 4 days when we had to quickly travel down to Florida for a family members health emergency.  10 days later, back home for a two weeks and now….in the home stretch since school starts for me next Monday.  So sad to see summer go, but looking forward to the new school year.

So while all this was going on…the Collaborative Coloring Book I participated in was published!!!

Global Doodle Gems, Volume 2, available on Amazon!

I’m pretty excited to be in the midst of some wonderful artists – it’s quite a thrill seeing my own work out there in a book!

I’m also making my pages available for Instant Digital download in my etsy shop and the first one is up today

I’ll be listing the other pages over the course of the next few weeks, so stick with me.  I’m looking forward to getting back to work on my own collection of coloring pages as well.  And just to make things a little more interesting, we’re also gearing up for the NJ Sheep Breeders show in just a few, short weeks.

Did I forget to mention I need to get a class schedule together for some Zentangle classes as well?  Yes, there is that, too.

So tell me, what did you do over your summer vacation?

Arukas Meets Diva Dance


I was doing a little tangling  today, trying to catch up on my Tangle-a-Day calendar and then I got bit by this bug….



So many tangles out there and I just got a bug to combine these two – Arukas meets Diva Dance – this was a ton of fun and I definitely will be doing this again!

You can find Diva Dance, created by Maria Thomas to Celebrate Laura and her 100th Weekly challenge, HERE.

For the Love of Tangling July Challenge!


I have a group on FB, For the Love of Tangling, that’s been a lot of fun and it’s a wonderful group of people.  We were having weekly challenges, but that was a little too much, so we’ve now gone to Monthly Challenges.  My inspiration for July’s Challenge was a tile I started at CZT Seminiar, one of the pre-strung Zendalas.

I finished it this morning and Viola!  July’s Zendala Challenge is born!


Patterns used here are Poke Leaf, Diva Dance Rock N’ Roll, and Betweed.  Come on over and join us in the group and you can participate in the challenge!  With a whole month to work on this, we should have a photo album just brimming with amazing!  Do one – do more than one – prestrung, your own design, a template….go for it.  Show us your Zendalas!
