Get cozy with Zentangle®!

Wow, does time fly! I've been away from my blog for even longer than I realized. But the tangling hasn't stopped, and I'm back with some thoughts on this time of year.

Autumn is a great time to get tangled! Some people find the shortened days a challenge. Less sunlight and outdoor time? Maybe you could really use a boost? There's another way to look at this changing of the seasons. Think of fall as the time to get cozy indoors. Tangling is a great activity for the cozy time of year. Grab a pen, a pencil, and a tile and settle in for some tangle time.

If you need some help getting started, consider joining a Zentangle® FUNdamentals class (formerly titled "Zentangle 101 Basics"). There will be a class on November 14th, from 2 to 4:30 pm. The class fee is $35, including supplies.

Once you've gotten the FUNdamentals under your belt, you're ready for a Beyond the Basics class. The next two coming up are Grow an Organic Tangle Garden on October 17th (1 to 5 pm., $45 class fee, including supplies), and Made to Shade on December 5th (2 to 4:30 pm, $50 class fee including supplies and a copy of "Made in the Shade" by Cris Letourneau).

Wondering what an Organic Tangle Garden is? Here's a photo of a Tangle Garden work-in-progress. Want to join us in class?

So think "cozy" as the leaves fall and the winds blow, and spend some time in a mindful, creative, healthy pursuit. Tangle on!
