It's been quite a while since I posted anything here, got caught up in the holidays and the cleanup afterward. I haven't done anything fiber related since the Christmas tree went up-no room for my "stuff". In the meantime, I got myself addicted to a "new" form of art called Zentangling, or Zendoodling. Yes, doodling! It seem to be all the rage lately. I decided to doodle all 25 of my ATC's for my trading group this month. It's been fun, and I've found related cool stuff on the web all about doodling. There's even a place out east where you can take a seminar to be certified-for mega bucks. Well, even though its tempting, I figure I've been doodling for at least the past 50 years or so (Yeah, I'm old) Then, this morning while searching for a book I can't find, I came across my graduation yearbook. It made me chuckle. So, I'll share pictures of that and some of the doodles I've done.

Happy Doodles!!

Passage of Time

Happy New Year! Hope all is well with everyone and that this year brings peace, joy and love to all.

I am posting pictures of a piece I made to honor my dad. He's been gone now for 27 years. I still miss his smiling face and lighthearted personality.

I learned the techniques to make this piece in a class taught by Richard Salley at Raeven's Nest Art retreat. I love how it turned out. I feel that it belongs with my brother, and will be giving it to him for a Christmas present. I sure hope he likes it.
