  • Linda, I love the refreshers. It’s easy to forget about patterns or always use them the same way. You help me keep things fresh. Your site is such a great resource!

      Thanks so much, Minette! I love hearing that folks are enjoying this series because they do take quite a bit more time to put together, but I’m having fun doing it. 🙂

  • Love these designs and seeing your post in seth’s buried treasure collab. Just wonderful! Thanks for being a participant!

  • I met a lady this past weekend who had just taken a ‘course’ in Zentangle, and she showed me what looked like drink coasters. Fabulous! I’ll be back! It seems as though the patterns would be easily incorporated in my mail art.

    I’ve recently been introduced to Zentangles and it has become such a wonderful, fun and relaxing part of my life.
    I am so excited I found your site – it’s been keeping me so busy, I never turn on the TV anymore.
    My first project is for our daughter who just moved into an apartment. She and her boyfriend wanted coasters to replace the very ugly ones they have. – I just laminated my first 8 Zentangles and they are beautiful.
    Thanks for adding so much to this engrossing new activity!

  • I love this website. Thanks for the great job you do.
