Tangle Refresher 39

Tangle Refresher!

Tomorrow, December 1st, is when I personally feel launched into the Christmas season. Until then I inhabit my own little state of denial. But once the calendar says it’s December, denial is no longer an option. Out comes the Christmas tree and all the other decorations collected over the years. We’ll dig out our collection of Christmas CDs and play a few while we dress up the house for the holidays. May I be among the first to wish you a beautiful holiday season as you enjoy all the seasonal festivities over the next few weeks. As always, take time to tangle …

Tangle Refreshers can remind you of patterns you might not have used for a while or introduce you to patterns you might not have come across yet. Here are five more tangle pattern gems and a Tangle Refresher from a year (or two) ago for your tangling pleasure. There are also links at the bottom to more buried content, so be sure to check them out too. Happy tangling!

  • Thanks for the refresher. This is first one on which I have actually been familiar with all the tangles and even used some of them!I looked at some of the earlier refreshers when I started visiting this blog and was amazed how many there are. In those days I didn’t know any of them. I’m still amazed at the creativity ZIA generates.

    THANKS for sharing so generously. I am an art teacher and zentangle enthusiast sharing the joy of zen with many students. They are hooked and so am I!!
