Counting our blessings and giving thanks

As those of us in the U.S. prepare to honor Thanksgiving tomorrow and celebrate our multitudes of blessings, I wanted to thank you, Gentle Readers everywhere, and let you know how much your support means to me. I am so grateful for and appreciative of your comments of thanks and encouragement.

Happy Thanksgiving Zentangle Zealots!A very special word of gratitude goes to all of TanglePatterns donors – bless you!

I’d like to send our heartfelt thanks to Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts and all the wonderful CZTs who are part of the Zentangle® family, for this gift we are so fortunate to experience. And right up there deserving very special thanks too are the generous artists who share their tangles with us.

You are all at the heart of what motivates me to maintain this resource for the benefit and joy of those who tangle now, and those who come to this wonderful art form in the future.

For those who celebrate tomorrow, a very Happy Thanksgiving. And may everyone be blessed with peace and abundance.

In Gratitude, Linda

    Linda, thank you sooo much for your time, your effort and your passion! I REALLY appeciate that you have created (and grown) this awesome website to share Zentangle. I love checking my email in the morning to see if there is a ‘new’ tangle, and if there is …. it’s like opening a present :-) So Thank You and Thank you to everyone that contributes to this site.
    Bless You.
    Love from Anne (in New Zealand)

  • Linda, I am so thankful for all your hard work to provide your readers (extended family) with a place to come together and learn such a beautiful form of artwork. You have blessed us and for that we are grateful.
    And @ Anne from New Zealand, what a delightful picture for our mind’s eye!:
    “I love checking my email in the morning to see if there is a ‘new’ tangle, and if there is… it’s like opening a present”.

  • Thank you for keeping all the tangles together to inspire and challenge me. I spend each day trying at least one tangle from your site. I have books, but with an iPad, this site is easier to keep at hand.

    God Bless and thank you.

  • Judi
