No new Tangling from me.

Hello friends

I brought my Zentangle supplies with me to Arizona, determined to continue keeping up with my Tangle A Day Calendar. And I did for awhile, but the sun sets early this time of year and lighting wasn't good enough in the evening to do any shading.

Then I had a sudden and severe gallbladder attack. Had to go to the hospital where they performed emergency surgery. It was my first real surgery, and having it in another country certainly added to the stress.

Afterwards I was too sore and unable to lean over to do any tangling at all. Never mind the pain pills knocked me for a loop for hours every day. There was a second hospital visit 5 days later, but now I've started to get better.

Our insurance wants me to have my post-op check-up back in Canada, so we are leaving here earlier than we planned and any spare time is being spent visiting friends we won't see for months, and packing up the house.

I'm sure when we get home, I'll be all healed up and I am SOOO ready to pick up my pens.

Oh a happy note, I ordered - and received - my 2017 Tangle A Day Calendar too. Haven't even cracked the wrapping, but ... ... so exciting!

Wish me happy healing,

Tangle a Day Calendar 2016, March 10th, 11th and 12th

Hello friends

I haven't had a chance to do any tiles in the last two weeks, and I've even fallen behind in my Tangle a Day Calendar. That needs to be remedied right quick. I miss it.

I also have to take photos of the pages up to mid October so I can get them posted. Meanwhile, here is a page from March.

60th Birthday Zentangle Card

Good morning friends

Today's share is actually a cross post with my card-making blog, Altered Scrapbooking. You can read that post here if you are interested the card details & supplies.

I made this tile (my Zentangle Tile #94) for a friends special birthday, and wanted a nice way to present it.

Weekly Zentangle Video contribution

Hello friends

Today's tile was done for Jane Dickinson's Weekly Zentangle Video on Face Book, where the focus tangle is Onamato. Which I always thought had an R in it ... Ornamato.

I pencilled the string, then it all just fell into place. Love it when that happens!

This is my Zentangle Tile #99!

Zentangle Tile #98

Hello friends

I've really enjoyed doing a little tangling daily this month in my Tangle A Day Calendar by Carole Ohl. Not entirely sure if I will get another one for next year, but it is fun to flip back and see completed art on each page. On the other hand, I'm not getting to do any tiles or challenges.

Had a reaction to medication this week, which meant quiet time in my chair. Which also meant some time for a tile.

Tangles used:

Zentangle Tile #89

Hello friends

Heavily inspired by Lynn Mead and her Tangle Deck #1, here is my Zentangle Tile #89, I was at a Dr's Office and there was a fair bit of waiting. Tangling helped pass the time.
