Happy New Year!

Greetings everyone!
Over the past month I discovered a new-to-me "artform" called zentangling.... the resulting "doodles" are called zentangles. [Zen = relaxation; tangle = doodle]

Go figure! Doodling as an art form! However, it IS very relaxing and releasing; and peaceful! I'm lovin' it! Today I am going to share some of my creations with you! Hope you enjoy your peek here! May the New Year be good to you!

Here's my hand and then one with Madison's 7 year old hands!

I love to draw hearts so of course I've done a few of these ... I like this one the best!Next you see a couple of "winter" flowers .... I so love spring and wait each year for the flowers to pop out of the ground!

Christmas was so awesome this year! Roads were great for travel - we spent time with all the family! As I reflect on the Birth of Jesus I have to think about the reason He came to earth ... His purpose was to go to the cross for me - for you! Christmas began that great journey of LOVE. How thankful I am!
The rain pelted down one night while we were at my daughter's - all that was left of the snow in the morning were a few white pathces here and there. That picture inspired this "doodle"!
I try to give a title to every doodle but just couldn't come up with one for this so .... it remains "un-named"!
This next one has to be my favorite - I love adding color!
We watched the fireworks in Halifax on TV at midnight New Years Eve! Of course, this doodle was inspired by that! I started it just before midnight and finished it on the 1st of January 2010!

Then yesterday - January1, 2010 - I took the tree down and put away all the decorations; what a sense of satisfaction when that is accomplished for another year! When order is restored!Inspiration hit me again!

All my storage of "stuff" is upstairs - did you notice the "stairs" in this one?
I hope you enjoyed you're journey here today! Have a blessed New year!
May you're hearts be filled with Peace ... in the midst of all the pieces!!!
