Thank you for being patient while Cindy and I tracked down the problem with the blog.
It has been corrected and you should not have
any more of those nasty pop up boxes
to deal with.
To celebrate, allow me to introduce you to
Shiretown, a new tangle!
Back in the summer, Mark and I traveled to Maine
to look at some houses.
We overnighted in a hotel name Shiretown.
This is phone photo I took of the carpet in the hallway.
Many of my tangles come from carpets.
Deconstructing that pattern was simple.
You just break it down one step at a time,
much the same way you draw a tangle.
One step at a time.
Shiretown makes a fine border as you can see.
I really, really love tangling this in a circle!
In the background you see another of my patterns -
barz. No step out drawn, just rows with a series
of straight and diagonal cross lines.
Please pardon our dust.
The problem has been fixed.
Hallelujah!!! and a big thanks to Charlotte Baker
for connecting me with an awesome computer guru
who located the problem in about 30 seconds!
(And didn't charge me a penny!)
And since I have had my little meltdown
and am back on the road to happiness,
Cindy is going to be making a couple
appearance changes here.
Hopefully all will be wonderful soon.
Thank you for hanging in there with me!
And for a teaser . . . . . .
expect an announcement coming this weekend!

Super easy steps.
The hardest part is going to be deciding on the embellishments!
For this particular piece, I decided to forego the embellishments,
and head straight to the color!
This piece was colored with copics and
At You Spica glitter pens.

There is a wave rolling through Facebook.
It is a wave that rolls through about twice a year.
It is called the 5 Day Art Challenge.
Basically someone 'nominates' you for the honor and,
in response, you post a piece of your art each
day for 5 days in a row.
In that post you designate someone else to
carry on the challenge.

Not long ago, the Tangle It! Journal was released
and along with it came some new tangles.
Coral was a tangle of mine that we shared
in the new journal.
Coral is easy to tangle and it has so many applications.
This one was fun.
Coral can be more abstract and just flow
with whatever you are drawing.
It can be asymmetrical.
Or really asymmetrical.
Here coral just kind of takes on a life of its own.
I really love using coral in underwater scenes.
As you can see, the coral don't need to all move in the same direction.
They work very well in a random placement.

I tried several times yesterday to make a post,
but Photobucket was down and so many of my photos
I didn't want to draw attention to that.
And it seems I have lost 11 subscribers since yesterday.
I don't know if that is because the blog looked so messed up yesterday, or not.
I do apologize, but I have no control over Photobucket.
That is where all my photos are stored.
They have me totally at their mercy.
At lease it is back to normal today.
Above you see string #11 that I posted for January 11th.

String #10?, you say.
And today's the 28th?, you say.
