Mosaic Chair for Morris Arboretum

Here is the chair I've  been working on - still need to buff the grout, but my hands hurt!!  It's hard to see from this image, but it's a tree with a root system and worms in the ground:)

Class Scheduled in Reading, PA

I have a Zentangle Basics class scheduled in Reading, PA on 5/26 from 1-3pm.  Please contact me if you are interested in taking the class.

mosaics and such

I have been working on applying a mosaic design to an Adirondack chair for Morris Arboretum.  While I was laying out the design, Mia drew this zentangle - and she glued a few things onto it as well:).  I'll post pictures of the chairs soon!

Diva Challenge #66 Aura

Love, Love, Loved this challenge - nothing like aura to get you into that zen space.

Kindergarten Tangles

I decided to teach how to tangle at my daughter's Kindergarten class and here are the results!  They really had fun although I was a little stressed out!!  I had to keep them moving and of course each one would hold up their tile proudly and shout - "how's this??"  too cute!!

Here is my daughter Mia with her tile
Another proud student!!

Zendala Dare #1

I love a good challenge, so when I saw the Zendala Dare posted by Erin of The Bright Owl I jumped at the chance to give it a try.  I traced the string onto a blank tile using my computer screen as a light should try it too!

Zentangle Basics Class Results

I taught a zentangle basics class last night to four wonderful ladies!  We had a delightful time and I wanted to share images of their tiles with the following patterns:  crescent moon, printemps, florz, and tidings.

Next, we worked on a monotile- choices were indy-rella or betweed

Lastly, we did a duo-tile (is that a word?) using only 2 patterns - hollibaugh and drupe

Penn Nursing Zentangles!

I teach a graduate research methods course to nursing students at the University of Pennslyvania.  In class this week we discussed the importance of mindfulness in helping clinicians manage their work stress and improve patient safety.  I taught all 40 students how to tangle and here were the results.  They enjoyed the process and were appreciative of the reminder to stay in the moment and be mindful.
