Challenge 91 Beads of Courage

Laura's challenge this week is Beads of Courage.  As Laura explains, "Beads of Courage is a charity that helps a child with a chronic illness or condition to tell their story of courage and strength".  I thought about what kind of tile can I design with beads?  I was going to skip it, however, I couldn't get the image of little Artoo out of my head.  He is one little cutie and brave too.  I made one tile not too excited about it and tried another.  I wanted to see what kind of tiles others designed.  It is amazing what you all can do.  Such beautiful designs and dear remarks to Laura and Artoo. Artoo is two!  Happy Birthday little one.  Hope you like my tiles.

Challenge 90 String Theory

This weeks challenge was to use Tangle Pattern String 001 from Linda Famer's website.  Can you see my string?  Sometimes having a string to follow make it easier to select your patterns.  When I first saw this string, it reminded me of a pineapple and that thought got me started.  This was the first time I used Worms and I like it, I love Rain and use it quite a bit. Hope you enjoy.  Go to and enjoy Linda's wonderful website.

Rick and Maria's Zentangle book

Here is the cover to Rick and Maria's new Zentangle book.  I am taking orders for the book.  You can buy a signed copy from me and Rick and Maria included an official Zentangle tile in the book for you to use as a bookmark.  The book is a beautiful hard cover with 146 pages with many illustrations drawn by Maria. The book is a must-have for your Zentangle library.  The list price is $39.95. Please contact me for your book.
