Also known as Portland Maine. I just spent five days there at an art workshop called Tangle U, with 120 tanglers from 6 countries (including Australia and Taiwan). I am exhausted and do not want to leave my house again for a good six months! Not much of a traveler. But this was oh-so-worth-it.
Below is the sole project I finished while there.
I brought home several other projects to finish, and expect to be busy for quite a while. It was great to reconnect with people and get inspired by their work.
But then there was also this. I ran into a convenience store, having let myself get far too thirsty, to reluctantly buy some bottled water (hate buying those plastic bottles) and instead stopped dead in my tracks when I saw:
Such an obvious solution! Why haven't I ever seen this before? Why don't all stores have these, rather than the awful plastic bottles? Of course I bought it immediately.
Best solution is to carry my own reusable bottle, but that's not always possible. This would be my next go-to idea, if I could only find these in my home state.
Spread the word, please.
And now back to catching up on emails and unpacking. OMG, it's good to be home.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), long-time meditator and coach, focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
NEXT INTRO TO ZENTANGLE CLASS:
My next Beginning Zentangle® class will be for a private group in October. That class is full.
I'll be teaching another beginning class at the Greenfield Community Center in the spring of 2019, date to be determined. They do not have a website so please call them for more information.
I am always happy to teach 1-1 and/or in a small group in your home.)
Come and amaze yourself!
