Zentangles

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.
Until next time, stay pretty.

  2. Love this! I keep reading that doodling helps us in so many ways and now they recommend folks doodle in business meetings to help them retain information! Of course, we already know that art of any kind is a good thing. Right?
