  • It’s wonderful. Thanks, Linda. Beautiful cover work by Michele, too.

  • And it is awesome! THANK YOU! Now I’m freshly-inspired to tangle! 🙂

  • Janet R

    Thank you, Linda!
    I referenced my 2012 edition frequently, so I know this updated version will be an even more valuable resource.
    Enjoy your well-deserved rest!

    Hi Linda,

    I left an earlier comment while I was printing the 2013 book & wanted to give you more info to see if you have any ideas. After the printing was finished, 57 of them were blank. Am I the only one with random madness in my life?

    It’s a gorgeous book and I’m thrilled with it & will be learning and practicing for month…but I need to know if I should smash my hard drive with a hammer.

    • Linda Farmer, CZT

      No but you might want to slap yourself around the head a few times. PLEASE, I implore you, as I wrote in the email you received AND on the download page: “READ page 2”.

  • Just downloaded it. What a wonderful job well done, Linda! I think you deserve a good rest now! Thanks for everything you do for us all – this site has proved the most amazing resource as I move forward on my Zentangle adventure. I wish you all the very best for the coming year.

    Thanks again.

    I’m not sure what is going on but this is the 3rd message I’ve sent regarding not receiving the 2013 guide. I’m on automatic donation.

    • Linda Farmer, CZT

      Hi Sherry, I’ve replied to your previous comments by email which apparently you aren’t receiving. All recurring annual subscriptions to the site have been permanently cancelled (see #12 on the ABOUT > FAQ page for an explanation) and if you check your PayPal account you will see that no transaction has taken place. Please visit the SUPPORT TANGLEPATTERNS page for information about getting the 2013 Edition. Thanks!

      • Sherry Byrne

        Hi Linda,
        I am so sorry, I did find the emails in my spam folder. I’m not sure why they ended up there this time. Anyway I did get an email from PayPal last week regarding the payment. I went to PayPal and looked it up and it was cancelled. I’m sorry for the confusion and the stress this (and all) auto pays have caused you. You (Linda) try to be proactive and it ends up biting you in the butt. Sorry for that.
        I will order the guide. Thanks

  • Sara Mudge

    Hi, I love the new tangle guide! The cover is beautiful and inspiring! I was wondering what is the name of the tangle on the bottom left of the cover. The one that looks like little balls with swirls on either side, it sort has a ying yang feel to it? I look forward to your response. Sara Mudge

    Thanks Linda, I found it….Cruffle! I love it!
