I am blessed with a week off work for the holidays. After the last few weeks, I needed this. All the house mess I mentioned in the last post and the stress of working with a student teacher that needed a lot of help - yep, the week off was appreciated. I also got to spend lots of time tangling and doing other artsy things. And of course, the added bonus of sleeping in, isn't a bad blessing either. It appears the house company has taken care of the problems they created. The bank has cleaned up their end of the mess. There are some issues with insurance as a result of the fallout from all this, but even that may turn into a blessing.
Another biggie for me this week? I went over to interweave and got a copy of the book that has my art work in it!!! I still can't wait to hold the paper copy, but it was awesome just the same. I will write a full review with pictures when I get the book.
Using the tangle assunta was my facebook group's challenge. Whew! That is a beautiful tangle - when done by someone else. I struggle with it. I could not follow the steps on the Zentangle website. They confused me. So I went to one of my favorite tangler's sites - Ellen Wolters. She does awesom videos. So clear and easy to follow. She used a grid to do assunta instead of these little dashes. After I got comfortable with the grid, I released it from the grid. It reminds me of a mistletoe ball or maybe that is my holiday spirit kicking in!
Hope you are having a blessed day! Stay safe and healthy and see you next time!!
