Well here I am again... completely taken in by "zendoodles". Over on "Sketchbook Project" yahoo group I have joined a swap for what I call "zen circles". I'm not certain as to the correct definition of "zen mandala's" so I don't want to call mine one of them. (I'm wierd that way I guess)! Plus I think zentangles are supposed to be one continuous line and mine are not. Anyway, on the SPG (sketchbook project group) one of the ladies posted her zen mandala on black paper and it was gorgeous! It started my mouth watering and I knew I had to try this technique myself! I am glad that I did... now I am thinking of getting a sketchbook with black paper only! That is the wonder of being a member of certain art groups... there is amazing work out there to see!
I really enjoyed creating these little doodles... I find doodling very peaceful and relaxing. I don't usually watch tv (because we do not have cable,or satellite, or digital tv... or whatever the newest greatest form of t.v. there is - lol), however, I do tend to like certain shows every once and awhile and will watch them online via global tv. I especially like to watch "The Good Wife" and "House".
My husband tried talking me into getting rid of cable for years and finally I said yes to getting rid of it and I must say it is one of the best decisions we have made for our family. The only problem is that when we go on vacation (like this weekend) my boys (including hubbub) spend a lot of the time glued to the set! I however, have changed from a cable-addict to a not-liking-cable-at-all person! I absolutely hate all the commercials and to be honest most of the shows do not appeal to me either.
We went to Banff this weekend and enjoyed a much needed family weekend with waterslides, games and of coarse... tv for my boys! Sounds exciting yes? My hubby lovingly purchased a beautiful Garnet necklace that matches my Garnet Ring that I purchased at the Lilac Festival last June, for me for Valentines day. What a sweetheart! (To see my ring just scroll down to June postings). My necklace is the same pendant as on the ring.
Well I hope all of you are full of inspiration and positive creativity! Happy creating everyone!
