Tangled Tuesday No. 21 + 100 Happy Days – Day 11

Today’s happiness is brought to you by a perfect blue sky on a gorgeous, sunny, first day of fall! I absolutely love this time of year, and it’s particularly special when autumn begins with such beautiful weather. I haven’t yet noticed the leaves beginning to change colour, but am keeping an eye out and plan to take lots of pictures when they do!

Now on to some tangling on this lovely Tangled Tuesday!

New Tangles

This week I finished Yoga for Your Brain by Sandy Steen Bartholomew, learning Durn, Whysk, Sporktine, Leeter, Besochix, Coop, Fidget, Sippy, Sweed, and Chakra.

If you followed along in Yoga for Your Brain, you saw that I skipped a few of the designs. This wasn’t because I didn’t like or want to do them, but because I’d previously learned them through another book (there is often overlap and some repetition between the various Zentangle®1 books).

I also learned several designs from TanglePatterns.comJasmin, Yuma, Nuwave, Wud, and Vano.


I’m currently working on the letter X in my tangled alphabet series, which means that…

Finished Projects

…I had a really productive week, finishing U, V, and W!

Zenletter V

Zenletter W

Zenletter W

Just three more to go and the design part of this project is done! (And not a moment too soon!)

Coming Soon

This week’s tangling goals include:

  • Dare I say finish my Zenletter collection? All that’s left are X, Y, and Z… think I can do it?!
  • Depending on when I finish the alphabet, the next step is to take the originals to be scanned at the print shop so that I can start uploading the designs to various products on Ten Thousand Tangles.
  • Continue adding products to Ten Thousand Tangles.
  • Photograph my previously-completed set of four Zendalas and set up listings to sell the originals in my as-yet-to-be-opened Etsy store. (Sigh. OK, this little project is now ON HOLD while I focus my energies on completing the alphabet series.)
