Back to Zentangle

Wow, it has been a hectic couple of months in our household! Lots of time on the road since the FIRST Robotics team (2363) that my kids are on won the Palmetto regional! Next was a flurry of fundraising so we could go to the National Championship in St. Louis. What an experience!  Then there was the grad class in order to keep my teaching license. Then soccer finals and championship games.  Then before I know it, my "baby" boy Chris is moving his tassle to the other side of his cap and walking across the stage to become a high school graduate! Deep breath! 

Through it all Zentangle has been my constant companion.  The mini kit Rick and Maria gave us at the October CZT training is tattered and worn but I can't bring myself to change it to a new's like an old friend. On every plane ride (four weekends in a row in a plane or in a car!), waiting in lines, even sitting in the stands between matches I had my kit with me tangling at every opportunity.  I've been catching up on reading the blogs and looking at all the lovely work from the challenges.  I'm so excited to be scheduling classes for this summer and next fall.  I can't wait to order some of the new things...those black tiles look amazing. 

I just wanted to share with you a piece of art my daughter did for an art assignment at the end of this school year. They were asked to make a mandala.  She incorporated several tangle like patterns in some of the spaces in the piece.  I really love the inverted Betweed that looks like bananas. I think she did a great job so I thought I'd share it with you.
