ZENTANGLE – I’ve been doing Zentangle art for a few years now. It’s a lovely form of doodly art with an amazing community of artists. Here are some challenges that I have taken on.

When I was growing up my mom insisted on piano lessons for me and my siblings. I went on to play the guitar, flute, and cello.

Then life happened ~ work and babies and such.

Now that I’m an empty nester I have the time to play. I’ve started practicing the piano again (I’m giving lessons to a couple of folks, my mom is so proud) and I just got a ukelele.

Here are a few links to helpful ukelele goodies online.

     Ukelele Tuner app – nice tuner feature and a selection of chords
     SongHub – look up most any chord
     UkuTabs – songs with the option to change keys
