The Red Thread Challenge

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break." -Chinese proverb

The Diva's Challenge this week is brought to us by Cris Letournea, who invites us to weave a red thread throughout our zentangle in support of an organization called The Red Thread Promise which helps impoverished kids everywhere with medical care.

The red thread in my zentangle reminds me that even though we may seem to be going around in circles, never really getting anywhere, the total of our life experience can be something really beautiful if we let it.

This was a great challenge and I really enjoyed it, even though my week was hectic. I'm extremely thankful for the creativity and joy Zentangle brings to my life!

Diva's Challenge #48

This week's challenge is to feature a square, triangle, and circle as your zentangle string, and if you incorporate tangles you've never tried before - bonus!!! I call this zentangle 'Balance Act' and I used new (for me) tangles Pendrills, Demi, and Bubbles. I hope you enjoy it!

Happy Halloween!

For this week's Diva Challenge, the theme is, fittingly enough, Halloween! This is my favorite holiday:) I live in 'the neighborhood' in my town where all the kids come to trick-or-treat. It's so much fun to walk around with my own kids; everyone's so happy and friendly, which isn't surprising given the amount of sugar-highs there must be!

My zentangle is kinda creepy and goofy at the same time. The Halloween-themed tangles I chose are: Msst, Rain, Gothic, HekZee, Lava Juice, Swarm, Web, and Crescent Moon.
