This is definitely the mark of small town living…we get terribly excited over new businesses coming in, especially restaurants. And I discovered on Friday that we have a new coffee shop in town! It’s the only one we have, so you know we’re thrilled!
Hi everyone! I thought I’d better get this posted before I forget. There have been several medical crises going on either in our family or with my personal care aide (she is family!). Whew! Hopefully things calm down soon.
I’ve participated in the Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap. This photo was taken by Sheila Delgado. Sheila’s blog about my art She got one of my cards! I know it’s too large but the way to fix it isn’t showing up! I’m sorry.
I want to share with you all the things I currently have in my Zentangle® Store, in case your supplies are low or you’d like to add to your Zentangle things.
I won’t list the prices here but if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org , leave a message here, or even on Facebook Messenger I will let you know the prices.

There are lots of changes when a new year starts… resolutions, health care plans, and of course the date — and Hearts Untangled is no different. We have a new meeting time in Tazewell for our fun, free meeting and a new class!
Every month, we have a gathering of Zentanglers who love to draw, chat, share ideas or questions, and learn new tangles from Kat or one another. It’s two hours that fly by of free, lighthearted fun! We can all use more of that in our lives, I think.
We now meet every FIRST MONDAY of each month (note the change) at the Tazewell Public Library from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. (Of course you can leave any time). Bring your supplies, ideas and tangles to share, your sense of humor and willingness to learn new things. For your convenience, Kat and David have supplies for sale if you are short on anything.
Speaking of supplies, we have the NEW triangle tiles from the Zentangle® headquarters called 3Zs! The photo in this newsletter was drawn by Kat on a 3Z tile. They are fun and full of possibilities and make excellent mosaics (a grouping of connecting tiles that go together to make a larger image).
And one more bit of news!
Kat will be teaching a new class called “TRAVELING ART: Zentangle NoteCards” in Bluefield, WV at the Blue Mountain Mercantile located at 320 Federal Street. It will be held on Saturday, January 28, 2017 at 1:30-4:30 PM, with a break midway. All supplies will be provided, and the fee is $35. Learn how to make and send your masterpiece to a lucky recipient! So much more personal and special than an email.
Call (304) 327-7560 for directions and registration.
I’ve been creating new tangles and have decided that it’s time to share with the Zentangle world at large two today. Both are simple to learn, and both can be used as borders.
The first is called Beanz because the first strokes look like a coffee bean. Here is an example of Beans as a border tangle. Please note that I’m posting two photos for each because some see these upside down. This way, I hope everyone can see one right side up!
Beanz(click to enlarge):
.Here is another tangle of mine, called Aro, which is pronounced like “arrow.” It can be a border tangle or can be stacked upon itself. I saw a pattern like this on a bracelet
The golden one above the Step-out was drawn by Inge Frasch, CZT. I hope you’ll enjoy drawing these tangles! I’d love to see what you do with them! Send them to me at Untangled.Kat@gmail.com when you have something done!
Zentangle Inspired Art can take unlimited forms… Boots, clothing, seashells, stones, guitars, cell phones, boxes, aprons, envelopes, picture frames, cars… Anything with a surface!
I’d like to share a video that a fellow Certified Zentangle Teacher posted on her blog about an old upright piano that she and her husband rescued and restored. She wrote about it on her blog and near the end, she posted a video to watch. I suggest that you read and watch both. The video is very good and she talks a lot about Zentangle and how it changed her life.
