Wowsers! *updated*

I can't believe it's Thursday already!!

Time certainly flies when you're getting your kid back to school. My "kid" started high school this week (which freaks me out!!) Lots of papers to be signed, money to be sent (so much for public education - LOL) If you have kids in school now - I know you feel my pain. But I wouldn't have it any other way!!!!!


My inner creative person is REALLY wanting to come out. I'm not sure what that will be yet .. I have a few things I would like to create. We'll just see where the day takes me.

Last night I hosted 4 more gals for the Technique of the Month Club. I'm so happy that the jewelry set we created has gone over so well. Definitely look for more jewelry stuff in the studio soon. I've been making my own necklaces and would LOVE to share how to do it. In fact, I haven't been without a necklace since my hair was cut -- co-inkydink? I think not :) hehe.

Anyway, without further ado. Here are the four fabulous ladies (donning their newly created jewelry ensemble). Thanks for a great evening gals. Enjoy your treasures!!

ooooooH!! How could I forget -- Did you notice in the comment section in last week's TOMC post that the designer that inspired this month's technique (Cathe Holden) found my website and posted a lovely comment!!! Thanks Cathe! You were certainly a part of this class -- even if it was only in spirit! Thanks for all the lovely inspiration on your blog!!

Before I sign off for the day -- I have to post my Zentangle. THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS and my lovely friend Wendy (who was here last night) really wanted me to post an image of what I started yesterday evening. I'll repeat. This is a work in progress. I'll post an updated image as do it until I'm done. Let's see where this takes me.

For those who don't know what a Zentangle is, here's a site that will answer your questions. Right now, I just want to play. I am creating my Zentangle with India Ink and Calligraphy Nibs as I'd like to get more practice using the tool and experiment a little. I'm getting the Zentangle Basics Book here in the studio to get those creative juices inspired with a little structure ... hummm... inspired with structure? LOL (I'm shaking my head at myself! *smile* hehe) My Zentangle is a page in my Art Journal. What a great place to try new things.

Happy Creating everyone! I'm off to get messy!

OKAY -- I had it out and had to add to it..... Now -- I really MUST do a sample or two. BUT BOY does it feel great to play!!

Calligraphy Nibs??
I like the red nibs myself ... can eat a whole bag of them ... oops I already did that on Monday.
Your Zentangle is cool! But then again, what else is new?! j

Hmmm. I didn't know that my doodling in meetings at work was somewhat Zentangle in nature....

@Kelly ... SEE!!! I ALWAYS tell you guys you're artists and that you find art in everyday places and everyday things!
