As the New Year Approaches…


Another year is going to soon pass and we will be moving in 2012!  Life is an amazing journey that changes minute-by-minute, providing twisty turns that sometimes take you to places you never dreamed of!  If you had told me a year ago that I would be blogging (such as it is) and learning more about websites and the technology that is out there, I would have thought, oh boy, are they ever wrong!  I do enjoy learning but the technology piece is challenging.  I so admire my children and their friends…they have a special knack for it, as if it were placed into their DNA.  So, when I have challenges, I usually turn to my techie friends to help.  Although, it’s always better to teach someone to fish…so, I’m doing my best to learn from them and do the fishing myself.

In viewing and reading through other blogs, I realize how important it is to you (my readers), and to me (so I can learn more) to include neat things for you…so, my New Year’s resolution is to include content that is informative, creative, and FUN!  Without a little fun in our lives it would be too dull.  And Zentangle provides just that.  Creativity and fun.

With that in mind, here is a link to a neat “Tangle Catcher” pattern from Jane Monk Studio.  The Tangle Catcher was conceived by Jane while at Zentangle Training in Massachusetts USA … it s based on the same catcher that we used as school children,  but this time with Zentangle patterns on it.

From all of us in the Land of Oz…we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
