Smiley from

Good morning all . . . I am awash in a coffee bath morning and I’m running late with my post.  I wasn’t going to actually make it this morning, but then I saw Micki reference it up on her blog . . . so here I am.

I’ve done a number of Zentangles over the last week, but alas I have no photos taken and nothing recent to post.  However, I do still have some that I did prior . . .

One from  my journal pages . . .


One from an actual Zentangle square . . .

I’m in a bit of a hurry today . . .

My mother had thyroid surgery yesterday for Hurthle Cell Neoplasm and we are on our way back to the hospital this morning to hopefully bring her home after some monitoring last night.    Things look good . . . that’s all I can say right now until we have results from the biopsy (which will be a week give or take).

Again, thanks for everyone who have left comments and played along with the Zentangle posts . . . I love to see what you are doing . . . even IF you think you can’t, trust me you can Zentangle!  I’ll put an Inlinkz post at the bottom for you to link up too for a little while longer.

Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, grab on and enjoy the adventure!


I guess I don’t need to tell you that I’m totally hooked on Zentangle.  It has become relaxation and quiet time for me, whether I’m home or away.  When I’m working on a project, and remember to breathe and not grip the pen sooooo tight, I can feel my shoulders relaxing and a calm come over me.  Which makes it a perfect craft for taking along in your purse or tote.

Instead of bombarding you with tangles that I’ve done throughout the week, I thought it would be a great idea to start a new feature here on the BAD Side.  From now on (well when there’s not a hop or frenzy the same day), Tuesday will  from now on be “Tangle Time Tuesday!”  I hope you enjoy the projects as much as I enjoy making them.  I also hope that some of you decide to join in on the fun.  I’ve read that some of you have tried Zentangle, want to try or actually love it as much as I do.  So let’s try this!  (Spur of the moment decision here)  I’ll put an InLinkz collection at the end of this post and then you can play along with me and post a link to your project below.    We’ll try this for awhile and see what happens . . . sound like fun?

Here are a couple of my favorites that I’ve done over the last few weeks.  The first is one of my journal pages (I purchased a new Moleskin journal to carry with me and basically to practice in.)


The next one is also from my journal.  Sadly it looks like I got a little carried away with the stump when I was shading.  I’ve been using a paper stump (like we use with Gamsol and colored pencils) for shading my pencil marks to add depth to the Tangle.


That’s it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you create and link up!
