65 Roses

Every year I try to donate one or more pieces of art to a fundraiser here in town.  Billie Colson, a local artist and owner of Independence Gallery has a fundraiser every year for Cystic Fibrosis.  It started when her grandchild was diagnosed with the disease.  When kids try to say Cystic Fibrosis it comes out as "65 Roses".  So she requests artists to donate painted roses by the end of January and has a gala event with a silent auction to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  This years event is on Feb. 12th at the Rialto Theater Center from 6-9pm and cost $35.00 per ticket.  Every item that doesn't sell that night is displayed in her gallery for purchase through the month of February.  100% of sales benefits the Cystic Fibrosis foundation

For my donation, I tangled 3 different roses and mounted them on painted 5x5 canvas

DIVA Challenge 202 Duo Tangle: Chebucto vs. Copada

I love the duo tangle challenges, and this time it is two of Margaret Bremner's tangle patterns! I have used Copada several times before, but Chebucto was new to me.  I started this tile without a string and drew Chebucto first and Copada just kind of jumped on for the ride.  Fun challenge!

DIVA Challenge #201 Moebius Syndrome Awareness

Every year at this time, Laura at I Am The Diva blog raises awareness of Moebius Syndrome, which her little guy has.  If you are new to these challenges, please take a moment to go to Laura's blog and read about it.  This will be my fourth year doing a tile for this challenge, and as always, I have added a little heart and Artoo's name.  It has a pleasure watching him grow over the years.  Hugs to Artoo

DIVA Challenge #200!!!

Laura Harms at I Am The Diva blog is celebrating her 200th Bi-Zen-Tennial challenge!  Yay Laura, congratulations on this milestone event!  For the challenge she asked us to use one of our favorite tangles as a monotangle and fill the whole tile with it.  Also, put 200 somewhere on the tile.  I still love Betweed as one of my all time favorites (it's in the top 5 anyway), so no problem with this challenge




As a side note, I am proud to say that I have completed each and every Diva challenge to date!  I wrote about it at this blog post back in 2013 and I am still adding to my book every week.  Thanks again, Laura for all that do for these challenges!  I have had a lot of fun with them.

DIVA Challenge #199 UMT: Hitched

The DIVA's weekly challenge is back after the holidays, and starting into her 4th year!  Since it is the first Monday of the month we have a UMT (use my tangle) challenge.  This tangle is Hitched by HeidiSue.  I found it to be a really easy tangle with lots of possibilities for variation.  It would make a good border too

I'm on ETSY!

Happy New Year!

I wanted to try something new this year, so I decided to try selling on ETSY.  I am starting with 6 of my note card designs and as the year goes on I hope to add more items, so keep checking back through the year. 

Why buy note cards?  I love to send and receive hand written notes, thank you, thinking about you, encouragement, and so on, don't you.  I don't save birthday, Christmas, or other cards, but I do save all of my hand written note cards.  It makes me feel good that I have done something nice for someone and that they took the time to tell me in writing

One of the many benefits of Zentangle is leaving the technology driven world for awhile and creating something beautiful with your hands.  That's how I feel about hand written notes....something beautiful that hopefully will not become a lost art.

Here is the link to my ETSY shop. You can also find it by typing tangledinkart (no spaces) in the search box on the ETSY site, or hit the ETSY button on my blog.

If you live here locally and want to save on shipping costs, just call me or send an email to place an order, and you can stop by and pick it up.  My contact information is also here on my blog. 

Note:  If you are not familiar with ETSY, it is a online shop for artists and crafters.  Most of the items are handmade.  Check it out and support small business people by shopping on ETSY!
