Weekly Challenge #56: "Non Dominatrix* v.2"

Okay!  When I read the challenge for this week...I said Forget. About. It.   Then my inner crazy person said...Why. Not.  So here it is warts, wobbly lines and all.  Remembering the spirit of a challenge.  This one is done using Micron 01 and 05 Black and Micron 05 Green in my brand new challenge notebook...sigh!

Happy Anniversary!

I've been married to the most wonderful man for the last 16 years...Today!  He loves me for who I am right now...and that is so special.  He always believes that I can do anything.  When I sit down each evening with my pens and paper to tangle, I can sometimes hear him snoring from the bedroom.  I thank the Lord for this man.  Every time I begin a new craft...he just smiles and knows that he's going to be running to the Post Office to pick up a package filled with new things for me to play with.  The tangles were such a surprise...I really can't draw a thing!  The simplicity of the tangles...the step-by-step ness of it...makes it fun and easy and just plain beautiful.  So...thank you Al!  Looking forward the next 116 years!!!

Weekly Challenge #55 "String Theory v. VIII: Moebius Trip"

After adding my first mobius to the challenges, I felt it was necessary to make another one.  This one puts the tangles on the outside of the design...

Spider Mums...

The mums that I rescued back in November were trimmed and set aside waiting for the weather to warm up.  I sort of forgot about them and noticed last week that they had grown about six inches.  Now there are mounds of green sprouting out of the once brown stems...   No brown stems here, just some spider mums looking for warmer days!

Harley Davidson ZIA

Finally finished the HD Logo for my brother.  Will take a break from the bigger pieces for awhile.  This one has taken me about a week to finish.  I enjoy doing the Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) because it takes longer to finish and you can incorporate a lot into it.  But, I just got 2 new books and want to practice some new tangles.  Thanks to my wonderful family I have lots of inspiration for new ZIA's.  Tiff wants a Tiger, Mikey wants a monkey, Julie a giraffe and Josh wants an Osprey...not the bird of prey, but the aircraft that he works on.  Enjoy the Harley Davidson...

Weekly Challenge - Undine

When I first looked at the Tangle for this challenge, I didn't think I wanted to do it.  I've been more comfortable with the patterns that are circular and seem to just flow.  After doing a few practice tiles I saw the potential.  Now I'm hooked.  Here's my challenge piece.

This tangle is for the love of my life...Al!

Geaux Saints!

New to blogging.

This is my very first attempt to blog.  Don't know how it will turn out or what is really expected of me...just needed a place to put my zentangles.  I've been mildly curious about blogging...couldn't really see what the fuss was all about.  We'll see.  Aside from the beading that is my creative therapy...I have enjoyed the structure and peace that comes from doing the tangles.  I purchased Carole Ohl's Tangle a Day calendar and have thoroughly enjoyed it!  I'm working my way into The Diva's weekly challenge.
