Zentangle Tangle Munchin

[Zentangle? What? Start here.] Last week for the first time in a very long time, I did not post a response to the Diva’s weekly challenge. I have a good excuse. I was “on assignment” reviewing the Woodloch Pines Resort on Lake Teedyuskung in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Yes, it’s a tough job, but someone […]

Woodloch is an approximately three hour drive from our Center City Philadelphia apartment. We managed to get ourselves a […]

[Are you new to the Zentangle method? Then, start HERE.] I admit I almost did not attempt today’s challenge by guest diva, Charlotte Carpentier, CZT. Charlotte’s challenge was for us to use a stencil as our string. Before I could even think about the challenge, we had to pack up to return to Philadelphia from […]

[If you’ve never heard the term Zentangle before, start HERE.] I’ll try to be brief this week because this evening I’m teaching my first Zentangle class at a local library and I need to leave time for a proper freak out. This last time I taught something was about ten years ago and it was […]

Interior Los Amigos Restaurant, Atlantic City, New Jersey

Once the summer muggies descend on our hometown, Philadelphia, we head “down the shore” to the house we bought in Brigantine, on the first barrier island north of Atlantic City, New Jersey. When we brilliantly bought the house right before the 2008 real estate collapse caused by the financial crisis, our then 20-something sons incredulously asked […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge 231

This week the Zentangle Diva’s challenge is by Sharla Hicks, CZT, a summer guest diva. Sharla challenged us to use undulating tangles, explaining that she finds tangles composed of undulating “C” and “S” curves to be calming. I’m actually kind of fond of them myself partly because they’re very “forgiving”, and notwithstanding the rule that […]

An Introduction to the Wine Regions of Spain

main cathedral in Salamanca, Spain.

I admit that on my last trip to Spain, I pretty much just drank sangria (and ate ice cream) which means other than the fact that it was red, I had no idea what wine I was drinking. On my next trip to Spain, I hope to be a little more sophisticated, so I’ve done some […]
