  • Thank you for another wonderful year of posts and here’s looking forward to what’s to come.

    Sometimes I hit a tangle slump. A point where I feel that my tangle ability seems to regress, and inspiration fizzles out and therefore my connection with the process wavers a bit. It doesn’t happen often, but it shakes me. I think others feel the same sometimes too. I wonder if you do too? and if so I’d love a blog post about that, and how you get out of the slump!

  • Hi Maria,

    As usual, such a beautiful and amazing tile !!! I had a great time re-reading these posts from 2018….
    Could you possibly share what steps you did to create those amazing multi layers in this tile ??? These special effects of tangling are so stimulating to try and I just love these !!

    Happy New Year’s Eve to all of you at Zentangle HQ 🤗😃🎈🎈✨

  • I realize that the “12 Days of Zentangle” was a monumental effort. You asked for blog ideas. I’d like to see an occasional tutorial in that style – perhaps just focusing on a couple tangles. By the way, edited closed captions on your videos would be a help. Auto-translate doesn’t know much about Zentangley words and phrases. Thank you for the consideration.

  • Love all the posts and find most of the information exciting, inspiring, and helpful. I am one of these people who like to print everything out. And, research shows that we actually retain things we read. For me, it is helpful to have it on a piece of paper in front of me. Maybe I’m weird. At any rate, I’d love for “print” buttons to be put on blog entries and other messages that come from Rick and Maria, if that is possible. I think it would be beneficial for me and possibly for others as well. I especially love it when lots of people add input. I ALWAYS come away with useful ideas. Thanks!

  • Thank you for this list. Personally, each blog post is so insightful, and the comments let me know here is a community that fits me! I found Zentangle in 2018, took your advanced workshop September at 1440 in Santa Cruz, and will be there with you in June for CZT34. It has made such a difference in my life. I hope to be able to do some reaching out to other chronically ill people, and show them how Zentangle can can benefit them, also!

  • I really enjoy all of the blog posts. I liked the one where Rick was giving us the numbers for all of the possible combinations of a mosaic. Not that I could follow it mind you. But I enjoy the twists of thought he puts into our ZT experience.

    Happy New Year to you all. You made my 2018 very awesome indeed! ❤️😘👏🏻
