From Tonight's Class

Just one student tonight, but a really fun one!  She did an amazing job.  I'm looking forward to seeing more of Charlotte's creations!

Basics class on June 21st

Did a wonderful job! We had a lot of fun and I hope I see everyone one of them again!  Plus, they all seem to have a natural talent for this (unlike me).  I'm so proud of my students!

From our Scrapbook pad

This of just one of the frames available in our Tangle Pad for Scrapbookers.  It was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be, and I'm anxious to do another one.

For anyone interested in learning more, I have a Zentangle basics class on tuesday night, June 21st, at the Crafty Hen House.

Email me for more info!

Mavs win Title!

While the rest of the world (or at least Dallas) jumped for joy and yelled and screamed--including my family--I did what I like to do in honor of their first championship. Congratulations Dallas Mavericks, who showed that teamwork really does work!

United States of Zentangle

We just need one more state tangled and attached, and then we will have a terrific looking United States map.  Hopefully the last state will be done tomorrow and I can post pictures.

I'm also having a terrific time at our 2nd annual scrapbooking retreat at the Crafty Hen House in Bedford.  And Brenda (the owner) will have the website up in just a few days.  It's a great place to play and she has it very reasonably priced.

I also worked on a wooden cube - need to do a little more work on it before it's something to share!

Class pictures

From the basic class on June 7, 2011.

Two busy weeks!

I've done a lot in the past two weeks:  watched my middle son graduate as Valedictorian of his class, watched my oldest son play basketball (and win gold) in the Special Olympics Texas State Games in Arlington, celebrated Memorial Day, the next day celebrated my 25th wedding anniversary, spent four days at the Great American Scrapbook Convention sharing Zentangle® with scrapbookers, and taught another basics class as a result of the convention.  I am so tired, but I wouldn't change a thing!

The GASC in Arlington, Texas, last weekend was so much fun!!! Over 50 people took one of our Zentangle classes, either a basics or the Illuminated letters class, and many more were interested in learning about it.  So many people were so appreciative of the opportunity to learn, and I think a couple may even be signing up for certification!

I've got classes scheduled the rest of the month and have my July calendar started. 

I also discovered just how much I love to teach.  It thrills me everytime I see that proverbial light bulb go off over someone's head.  Both the students with natural talent and those like me who have to work at it get a sense of satisfaction as well as all the other benefits.

I'm putting pictures of the class artwork from the Scrapbook Convention - Enjoy!
