Tangle Refresher 47

Tangle Refresher!Depending on which hemisphere you’re in its either Happy Spring or Happy Fall, y’all. Here in the northern parts it’s a time of growth and change, and … growing pains.

As you may have read here, earlier this week I changed TanglePatterns subscription delivery service to a new provider. We are still working out a few wrinkles and I apologize for any duplicate mailings you may have received. Rest assured “we” are working on it.

Call for Stories! In January of last year I added a series to the site called “Stories – How Zentangle® Changes Lives“. Things have been a tad busy around here and it’s been quite a while since I added any new accounts to the series. So I thought I’d put out a call for fresh input, and I’d love to hear from you!

If you haven’t already done so, please check out the series by clicking on the STORIES tab in the pink alphabetic menu bar. If you would like to share your own experience for this series, please email me (linda [at] tanglepatterns [dot] com). You can make your story as long as or short as you like and if you wish your personal details to remain private, just let me know.

By publishing your “testimonials”, I’m hoping it will help spread the word about Zentangle to many others who can REALLY benefit from it. As the Zentangle founders say, “Anything is possible, one stroke at a time.”™

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 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. Zenful tangling!
