    Congratulations on your milestone!!!!

    Congratulations on your ‘first’ 1000 subscribers!!! Here’s to the many more thousands to come!

    I am visiting another state. I went to a stamp store here and it is the first place I have ever been where there was information on zentangles. I was excited about that and spoke to the owner of the shop. She had taught zentangles to a group of children at a stamp camp they had this past summer and she showed me some that the children had done. It was great!
    Congratulations on your subscriber list — I hope many more will come as well!

    Congratulations. You do such a great job of keeping us “tanglers” updated. I have only been doing zentangles since April, but I have fallen completely in love with both the zen part and the tangle part. My postmistress just loves it when I come to mail letters. All my envelops are zentangled! Thank you so much for helping me to learn the ins and outs, ups and downs, and arounds of this wonderful creative outlet. If we keep at it, zentangling may just creep into everybody’s fingers and reawaken the artis in us all.

    Yippee, Yahooo, Hooray,
    Congratulations to you and your wonderful site! Thanks for all your hard work and organization making zentangle patterns accessible to us all.

  • Casey

    Wow! What a milestone! I love being able to find new tangles here! And hope to do so for a longtime too!

  • Wow – that’s wonderful! A co-worker found your website about a month ago after I introduced her to Tangling. We both subscribed immediately and we have been going gung-ho at Tangling ever since. I’m amazed your subscribership isn’t at 100,000 – it’s such a complete, comprehensive site. I’m in awe at what you’ve accomplished in just 5 months. Congratulations!!

  • Karen
