I love this month’s template from LonettA’s CreA(R)Tive’s. It’s a simple spiral, but the effect of different patterns is amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever used a spiral string before. I may have to do a few more. 🙂
This is week 7 of the Zen-Untangled 2020 challenge. The patterns were supposed to be done on a Bijou tile. I didn’t have one so I drew a 2″ square in my sketchbook.
At Christmas, I gave a friend an amaryllis bulb. She watered it, it grew, and then gave her some of the most beautiful blooms. I visited her the other day and it was producing a second set of blooms. I didn’t know they did that.
At any rate, I’m going to get myself an amaryllis next year. Here where we’re buried in snow all winter long, I could use a bit of color. Pretty, pretty.
I recently found a group on Facebook and a new expression of Zentangle art – Dingbatz. It’s been around for a while, but I just now stumbled onto it.
Basically you make small bits of art using Zentangle patterns. They can be tucked on an envelope, a bookmark, or any place just big enough for a few strokes of a pen.
Here are a couple of my first tries in my tiny sketchbook.
Because they are so small they don’t take much time to do. I can sneak one anytime I have a few minutes of free time.
Today is Valentine’s Day and the perfect time to start thinking about baby bunnies.
It’s a good time of year here in Washington for bunny family planning. By the time the kits are born, the weather will be warming up and I should be out in my bunny tractor. A bit of hay and some nice soft fur and I’ll be ready for my new little darlings.
I wonder how many kits I’ll have. What will I name them? Perhaps this time I’ll give them all flower names.
Every time I hit the Oregon coast I stock up on fish and chips. This trip I’ve tried them at three different restaurants. (Kyllo’s was the best out of the three.)
Paul and I also spend far too much time discussing who has the best clam chowder. (And since it’s my blog I’m declaring The Chowder Bowl as the best.)
And, of course, dessert …
… and more walking along the beach.
My sweetie and I are taking a few days off at the Oregon coast. It’s on our bucket list and we need a break after a busy, tough season.
It’s a bit overcast and cool, but you can’t beat a few days at the oceanside.
I love these little sandpipers. They toddle all over the beach without getting wet. And, of course, there’s the occasional driftwood.
Later today we’ll have clam chowder at our favorite hole-in-wall restaurant and, weather permitting, walk the beach some more.
