Zentangle Cross

This drawing was one of those that struggled along. As I started to draw it I wondered if I should have stuck to one or two patterns but it was too late to start over. At the end of it I ended up liking it, as usually happens with Zentangle.

I tried loosening up a bit with this little drawing. I used a few tangles that were new to me like Lupe, Peas in a Pod and Druppel.  I need to work a little bit more with them to get comfortable. I still had fun though, which is what it is all about!

I Love to Tell the Story

I love this hymn. I decided to combine it with a ZIA. I hope you like it :)

Zentangle Love!!

This spring I had the opportunity to take a Zentangle class and I fell in love with it!! You can check out the official zentangle site here.  There are endless possibilities for creating with this process. It's fun, it's relaxing, and it's addicting!

Traditional Zentangles are completed on a 3x3 tile (piece of paper). When you tangle on anything other than the tile your piece is considered a ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art).

I love hearing and singing hymns in church on Sunday mornings.  Carrying the tune in my head after the service ends is like carrying around my own little treasure. A reminder of all of the wonderful gifts He has given to us. In an effort to carry the peaceful feelings of Sunday morning with me throughout the week I decided to tangle on a hymn from an old book I had.

Happy Birthday Abby!

Our dog Abby turned 5 today. She is a sweetheart and so well behaved.  She is afraid of our cats even though she is much bigger than them.  She loves peanut butter and chasing her tennis ball. She never turns down someone who wants to pet her. Here she is playing with Alison in the snow after Snowstorm Nemo.

 (She looks tough in this last picture but she doesn't have a tough bone in her body)

Happy Birthday Abby! We love you!!!

Vintage Heart Pins

I have a few vintage heart pins that I wanted to share.


Here's a closer look.  This crystal heart has lots of bling.

This sweet little heart pin reminds me of a grandmother/mother piece of jewelry with the different birthstones.

and my favorite......( I love when a pin can be a pendant too)

Only two days until Valentine's Day! Do you have your heart shaped jewelry all picked out for the big day?
