Tangled Drawings

I held my first Tangling class on Thursday and it was a hit! We all had a wonderful and relaxing afternoon and everyone explored the groovy patterns and styles that is the Tangle. Also known as Zentangle, its a way of learning to draw without the worry of doing it wrong. With Tangles there are no mistakes and every drawing is unique. 

This was the first afternoon of many... "Tangling and Drawing" classes are every second Thursday starting at 1pm and are just $20 per person. Small classes means personalised service, so you can learn to draw at your own pace. 

Here is an event link for details of the next class ...
You should be able to view that even if you're not a member of Facebook.

Hope to see you at the next one!

Happy Creative Day!

My New Website is Alive... and other news!

I know I say this alot... but... isn't it amazing how fast time flies these days? Something to do with being busy I'm told! At least I'm being creative this year :) Loving it!

I've finally finished my own website, which in hindsight should have probably been built in the modern way with but I had a stubborn "I can do this by myself" moment and created the whole thing from scratch!

Those that know me in person might have come across that moment before... sigh... its tough being independent! lol
But the satisfaction from building and creating something all by yourself is incredible.
I'm supposed to outsource the 'building' (its usually flatpack so not exactly building, more like giant Lego) of any furniture for our home to my 15 year old, but instead, I just let him help.

But he'll survive... my Dad is giving him lessons with the scrollsaw, the lathe and other woodcrafting tools - cool hey? I've so many things they can practice on... wooden shapes for 'off the page' crafts, wooden words, ribbon and washi tape spools, frog shaped coasters (frog shaped anything really) and lots of other things. Apparently I have to wait until he's finished his beginner lesson - how to cut out a dragon. Can't wait to see it!

Here is a screenshot of my brand new website... Have a look around. I'd love to hear your thoughts, and of course if you find anything at all wrong or out of place, please let me know so I can fix it! Thank you :)
