One of my newest things to do is Zentangle. I call it creative doddling. I never was a doddler. I might write my name all over something, but I didn't "draw" anything. Then one night I was looking around the internet and came across Zentangles. It looked interesting. And the article I was reading said it would improve your concentration, improve your handwriting and eye/hand coordination,helps with problem solving, improves relaxation and confidence. The website talked about certified Zentangle teachers. I put Alabama in the search option and figured that no one in Alabama would be teaching this. Much to my surprise, we have one certified Zentangle teacher here in town. I contacted her and the rest is history. I will say that my focus and concentration is much better. My handwriting has improved and I really enjoy creating tangles. It has increased my creative side which is a good thing. So look on line at Zentangle. It really is a great thing to do. I am going to post a picture of one I did.

Seems that I sort of got sidetracked by life and haven't posted in awhile. So now I'm back and posting again. My Mother saw a bracelet called a "Salvation Bracelet" or The Twelve Tribes Bracelet. It was based on the book of Revelations in the Bible. So I did a little research and made one for her for Mother's Day. She is enjoying wearing it. Here is a picture of it along with the references that make up the bracelet. I apolgize for the picture not being large enough to be seen. If you'd like a better look at it, email me and I'll send you a better copy.
