Tangle Refresher 64

Tangle Refresher!

It may seem a bit early to be talking about this but with my Mom and sister Karen coming south from Canada to celebrate Christmas with us again this year, I’m doing a bit of planning here today.

I’ve been looking at the calendar and thinking about meals and such for the occasion (at least I’m thinking about it!). This prompts me to remind you of ordering deadlines if you are planning to give the gift of Zentangle® this holiday season — and would like to receive your order in time 🙂 International orders, in particular, should really be placed ASAP because of the shipping volume all carriers deal with at this time of the year.

Naturally I recommend the Official Zentangle Kit and/or The Book of Zentangle, as the perfect gifts for anyone and everyone you love.

And any of the official Zentangle art supplies — White, Black, or the new Tan “Renaissance” Tiles, Zendala Sets, Ensembles, or Pre-Strung Tiles — make wonderful gifts for friends and rellies who are already confirmed tanglers. Especially if they haven’t had the luxury of drawing on the yummy Zentangle tiles – there’s nothing like it.

Beat the rush and get your orders in soon! Here are the “deadline” dates to note in your calendar:

  • For shipping within the USA, the last date to order from TanglePatterns to ensure delivery before Christmas is Sunday, December 15th. All orders are shipped USPS Priority Mail.
  • For shipping anywhere outside the USA, the last date to order from TanglePatterns to stand a decent chance of getting your order in time is Sunday, November 24th. Orders are shipped by International Air Mail and I can not guarantee delivery before Christmas for anything outside the US.
  • Of course I’ll continue to take and ship orders after these dates but there’s no guarantee they’ll arrive before Christmas.

Here are the direct links to the pages to place your orders:

The Tangle Refresher series, aka Buried Treasure, highlights hidden tangle gems from the past. It can remind you of patterns you might not have used for a while or introduce you to patterns you haven’t come across yet.

Here are five more tangle pattern gems and a Tangle Refresher from a year (or two) ago for your tangling pleasure. Zenful tangling …

And BTW if you like these tangles please Tweet, or “like” them on Facebook so they get shared with a wider audience. Sharing links are near the bottom of every pattern’s page. Thanks!
