the cat’s meow

More alphabet fun with Joey’s weekly tangle challenge. I love how Joey drew cat-kin. I tried to imitate it when I drew mine. The tiny dots give it a nice texture, very soft and pretty.

pattern play

I’m still working away at my personal challenge for 2017 ~ Mindful Creativity with Tangles. I do tend to work in fits and spurts, but having a challenge keeps me creative on an (almost) daily basis and helps me grow my collection of patterns.

I am especially enjoying the challenge of trying to work the patterns together across the page.

new etsy shop!

Well, I finally did it! I opened an Etsy shop for my “You-Color-It” cards. DoodlesFromTheHeart

I have cards for people who like to color or doodle (and some finished out cards too). My first set here are romance cards (each with a saying to finish). Just in time for Valentine’s Day.

We’re on to “b” this week at joey’s weekly tangle challenge. I moved the b-twixt, added a little bala, and invited some birds on a wire to play (one of my favorite whimsical patterns).
