"I am the diva - Certified Zentangle Teacher" is hosting a Giveaway

Do you do Zendoodles? Do you do Zentangles? Or, do you do what I do, doodles. To me they were always just doodles. It's something I have done for as long as I can remember. I now know there is an entire community of others who do doodles too (love the way that flows off the tongue). One community calles them Zendoodles and another calls them Zentangles, and yet another calls them Zen Dazzles, but for me they seem the same doodles. Maybe someone with a deeper understanding will correct me if I'm wrong. I have a small sketch book I use rather than zentangle tiles, but there are products dedicated specifically to the srt. Now, that didn't really surprise me since anything seems to open to free marketing these days. But what did surprise me was to find that there are copyrights on doodle concepts (look at the footnote of this blog post). Really? copyrighted doodle concepts? What does that do to doodles done thirty years ago that look like doodles copyrighted in the 70's or 80's?

There are also challenges out there to be found and participated in. I haven't had the time to particiapate in any, but it is on my "To Do" list. In the meantime I just follow couple of sites and look at other peoples work.

If you are interested just search either term, zendoodle or zentangle, and you will find plenty to keep you busy for a few days.

But I digress - here is a link to the giveawy referenced in this blog title - enter a comment for a chance to win some doodle supplies: I am the diva - Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT®)

And, since I don't consider my doodles blog-worthy I will not post them - just go look at the doodles of folks who sem to take more time making theirs look more planned out and symmetrical than any of my doodles.

This is a Really Nice Craft Room . . .

. . . NOT mine, but I wish it were. I love her many many wonderful, and inexpensive, storage ideas. And the size of the room is phenomenal! If ever I build my dream house I will have a room this size so i can set it up this nicely:

Here are a few sneak peeks:

So Nice

I would call this a "Luxury" item - love love love this chair!

Handy dandy indeed!

Beats my ribbon storage!
