I really did relax on vacation in Santa Fe.
I just sat in a chair and did art more than I've done in previous years. Normally, I feel like I have to DO something - go walk, do the galleries, hike, geocache - anything but sit still.
But this year, I sat still.
And it was amazeballs.
Well, I'm not really all that good at sitting still. So while I was sitting still, I started zentangling.
And O. M. G.
I have done this before, but something about being on vacation and away from work and just my normal daily insanity really made it a completely different experience.
I loved it.
I got hooked.
I did a million tangles.
This one is my favorite.
I took my Ziva papers for my purse from Z Becky Brown, and this fun round protractor I got from Artisan Santa Fe, some Faber Castell Pitt Pens and I .... relaxed.
Is that fun or WHAT???? Why didn't anyone tell me that protractors could be used for something besides math? I would have used mine a lot more had I known that!
Now, I have to say - I'm not a tangle nazi. Apparently there are rules you're supposed to follow when you do this. At least, that's what I hear.
As you know - I'm not really big on rules. Especially when it comes to art.
Put me in zentangle D-Hall. I don't mind. I've spent a good portion of my life in D-Hall - all of it earned and not regretted. :)
I have to say - I needed some instruction, though. I bought this book
and this book
This is going to be my new favorite purse and my new favorite TV watching activity.
God forbid a person do one thing at a time, am I right?
