I've Been Drawing Again....

I thought I was going to have some free time this week. My son went home with his sister for a few days and I should be spending time online visiting all my blogger friends. But I've been putting up Christmas trees instead!

Today I finished the one in the family room but I still have more to do to the one in the living room. It's very tall and I need HB to help me with decorations near the top. That might have to wait until the weekend when he will have some time off. Meanwhile my living room is full of big tubs of decorations and the kitties are loving it!

I also finally got back into the drawing mood. So the past couple of nights I've been working on a big zentangle-type drawing. It's about 9" x 12"....

I think I'll call it "A Garden of Dreams"


  1. I don't know what a zentangle is but I do know it is beautiful.

  2. I love this one, I think it is my favorite to date..
    Lacey and magical and I adore the title.

    we put up two trees as well, a lot of work but wonderful in the end.
    mine won't go up until next week...


  3. I LOVE this Zen tangle,,,its gorgeous. I know those kitties are loving having some xtra shiny baubles to play with,,he he!

  4. Janet, Your zentangle's are fantastic.


  5. This is magical! I love it!!


    P.S. I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time with your son.

  6. I'm so glad you are drawing again. And I'd wait for those tall trees until DH can help!

    Love it. I have done a few bigger ones but not that big. Wow that's a lot of drawing.

  8. Ooh - that's beautiful, Janet - it's like lace!
    In recent years, we've been doing just a tiny Charlie Brown tree on the table - though I sometimes sort of miss having a big one. I bet yours will be lovely!

  9. WOW!! I think this is the prettiest zentangle drawing I've ever seen....well done, Janet!

    We put up and decorated our tree a little early this year so Michelle would be here to join in. It was a special occasion because Beau, my son, bought a new tree and it's huge compared to our previous one.

    love, light and peace,

  10. And beautiful drawing it is.
    What a nice tangle. Makes me draw again.


  11. This is incredible, I wish I could dive into it. It's great to see you posting your creations again! And take care when decorating your Christmas tree! :o)


  12. Oh, the patterns are delightful. I would like a whole quilt that looked like that.

  13. Janet that is beautiful. So glad you have enjoyed the time with your son. Sending love to you.
    Enjoy the weather....

  14. Your gorgeous doodles/drawing give me an idea! I think they're lovely as they are, but am also thinking it would be fun to do some doodles with black acrylic paint in a fine-tip squeeze bottle and then paint over the dry doodle with transparent glazes.... I'm going to try it, although my doodles will be strictly beginner types. Hugs, Robin A.

  15. Girll... you have found your niche! This tangle is so intricate. I agree with the title..it titillates the senses..heh! too

  16. Your zentangle is Beauty Full!!!I've never tried those! I haven't decorated a thing yet!

  17. You look at it once and then twic, each time you see more...love what you do....Your, Mary

  18. Oh, my boy is loving the trees, too! Isn't it fun to have more than one?

    Lovely work you are doing!

  19. It reminds me of a one-of-a-kind wedding dress lace. Lovely.

  20. I like this, there are so many different aspects to look at and the title is just perfect!
