I have a favor to ask you …

When you compare the value you get from TanglePatterns for a whole year of new creative content week in and week out to the cost of a single workshop or a book or a magazine subscription, I would like to believe you agree this resource is worth at least that much to you.

So will you help me keep TanglePatterns online for another year?

Each November I ask the Zentangle community, the users and email subscribers of TanglePatterns, to come together to help underwrite the operating costs of keeping this one-of-a-kind Zentangle® resource online for another year.

The SUPPORT TANGLEPATTERNS page on the top menu bar describes the costs involved in running the site so you can appreciate why I need to ask for your help.

I invest all of my time and energy in enriching your creativity, it’s a full time job. Today I ask you to invest a little to help me keep TanglePatterns going.

It only takes you a minute. Your financial support makes a huge difference and it’s greatly appreciated.

When you click this secure button and update your cart with your donation, you are given the option of using PayPal or your debit or credit card.

“Linda, Your dedication to this website is a blessing to anyone who supports the arts. I can’t draw an accurate stick figure but I can tangle, thanks to your detailed, interesting, educational website. Your website not only teaches Zentangle, but history, geography, and anthropology. The worldwide audience of Zentangle has opened up the world to me. I look forward to being introduced to something new in every email you send. While I will offer my financial support, I can never truly repay you for all you have given me!”

I am so grateful to the understanding (and outstanding!) members of the Zentangle community, both those who already support the site on a monthly basis and everyone who has responded to my request.

With deepest gratitude and love and huge hugs,

With deepest gratitude

    Hi Ms Linda, this site IS a valuable tool and I so appreciate it and you. You probably remember that I did send a check to help support this site about 3-4 months ago unfortunately, I cannot participate financially this month but will in future.

    To all who use this site. Please consider contributing to this site so it continues to exist. It is an incredibly valuable tool.

    I can’t thank Linda enough for all the time and energy put into this tool. Blessings. Ro Saundry

  • I use your website as a reference for all my classes. Don’t know what we would do without you.
    I am sending a donation.

    Love your site and the newsletter. Very good source of inspiration. Since I found you all of my art journals have pages of tangles in them. Thanks

    what would we do without you, Linda?

  • Sandy Toes Art

    Done. It’s a no-brainer to donate to such a worthwhile and valuable website. Thank you, thank you for being here!

  • Nina Graci

    Linda, your generosity in delivering tangles to “the needy” deserves a medal, but until you get it, pls accept my donation. By “needy” I mean people like me who love having something to look forward to at the end of the day: which for me means paper, pen and tangling. And tangling, means getting into a zone that is unlike anythng else, a sea of tranquility in a world of strife :).

    You do so much good by sharing tangles, and perhaps you’re actually sharing an aid that helps people stay balanced and sane as well as happy….daily.

    That’s it: it’s a daily shot of “happy”.

    Could be you’re changing the world, one zentangle at a time. I know you’ve changed mine.

    Waving from Toronto,

    I will be donating. Your emails with new tangle patterns are the only ones I look forward to opening. I don’t have much time for my Zentangles these days, but your emails often inspire me to pick up my pen again. Your site is incredible, I always look forward to getting your yearly pattern collection book. Thank you for all you do!

  • Joanne

    Done! Always without hesitation. Would be lost without this site. So appreciate what you do Linda

  • I sent a donation. I am SO grateful for your work. I find your website and your e-books absolutely invaluable to my tangling. I truthfully don’t know what I would do without it. I use it daily and can’t wait for the newest edition of the tangle guide.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.
