Third Heart

Triad of Heartz
An early Valentine for you.

Sometimes, I'll start my day with a few Z'oodles to get the ideas flowing and my brain in arty mode. It's so much fun and I've been more creative the last few weeks than I've been the last year.

I signed up for the Use The Muse contest again. Last time I wasn't able to even get to creating with my Muse, so I hope this time around I will be able to create a special piece. As each contest begins, more and more beaders are finding out about it and signing up. There are quite a few international beaders that are part of this challenge. The finished pieces are so beautiful and the fun part about it is, we all have to use the same beads and a special "Muse" that Scarlett sends us. If you're up to it, sign up, pay for the kit and wait to be surprised. BUT...don't tell anyone what the Muse is!

I still have four pages for my Bead Journal Project to finish. If I can find them. With all the moving and rearranging I've done, I put them somewhere safe and you know how that goes. I'd like to try again this next year, but according to the rules, I have to finish what I started before I can sign up again.

The Big Announcement!

After creating all these Z'oodles and working my fingers down to the bone, I had to find a way to do something with them. So, I decided to open up a Cafepress shop. Here you can open up a free shop, upload your art and have them print it out on items you choose to sell.

I still have some tweeking to do, but everything should be up and running, so please drop by, take a look and if you like what you see, let me know.

Click HERE to go visit my new store. Thanks for stopping by!

UPDATE: I've closed my store at Cafepress and have an online shop at

The heart is the latest "doodle" I've finished. These things are like potato chips. You just can't do one.

Storm Wavez is my homage to Hokusai. I love his work.

Melting is a bit more structured than what I normally would do. Cool anyway, eh?

New Year, New Blog

I've been slowly working on my house and when I get tired of that, I've been working on my Zentangle. "Zentangle is an easy to learn and relaxing method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns." I discovered them about two years ago and have been addicted ever since. They are relaxing and also stimulating for the right side of the brain. No two are alike and for anyone who can't or thinks they cannot draw, Zentangles are for you.
