Tangling in a Tangle

Over on The Diva’s blog, Laura posted a challenge to create your Zentangles within a Zentangle pattern itself.  I thought that sounded like fun and I really needed something quiet and calming to do in an arty way after my week this week.  The first three months of the year at my job are always […]

My Journal Monday–Week 14 & Sunday Words

We had a special praise and worship service last night at our church.  It was awesome.  I led a song called Wonder by Bethel Music.  It was pretty good if I do say so myself.  🙂  I am still basking in His Glory this morning and just had to do this simple page as a […]


I have not been well this week…another round of antibiotic and some extra sleep were necessary parts of my days.  I did almost nothing in my studio this week but I’m finally starting to feel better so I thought I would at least post this.  I found a shadow profile in a magazine that I […]

My Journal Monday–Week 13

Didn’t get to do very much art this weekend.  However, I was able to work on a spread some yesterday.  I recently purchased a set of live workshop videos from the Interweave Store (ClothPaperScissor) and one of them was instructed by Mary Beth Shaw.  She is the lady behind StencilGirl Products and she has some GREAT stencils available along with the […]

Keeping It Simple

  This weeks Diva Challenge was supposed to take tanglers back to the basics.  However, since I have no basics to reference or go back to, it was quite a challenge for me!  The goal was to take a simple 3.5-inch “tile” of paper and to tangle a simple design with 4-5 patterns using only […]

T Is For Early Morning Tangling

Over on the AlteredBookLover blog, Elizabeth does a weekly link-up called T is for Tuesday.  It involves “drink” posts of any kind–drawn, painted, photographed, tagged, etc.   I am also preparing to post to the Diva’s tangling challenge for this week so the beginnings of that tangle along with my “energy” drink as I was working on it […]

My Journal Monday–Week 12

Another week of the new year has passed and it is again time for My Journal Monday.  I actually got to do a little art this weekend.  I was influenced by the Week 2 prompt for Journal52 and also one of the lessons offered during Week 2 of Life Book 2016.  I will be adding journaling and maybe some […]

Still Tangled Up In the New Year

I am still working on the journal spread that I began around New Year’s.  I wanted to include some Zentangle so I did all the numbers for the new year in a Zentagle fashion.  However, when the new post on the Diva’s Weekly Challenge came up, the challenge entailed something completely different.  So, I attempted to […]


This year the ladies over at Art to the 5th are doing something a little different than the last couple of years with their annual planner.  They are actually constructing their own planners with a little help from some existing products and their own imaginations.  I need a planner at work and in life in […]
