If you watched the YouTube video of me demoing at CHA and kept wishing you could get a closer look at what I was actually doing...

I can't go back in time, or change the video, but I did scan the art that I was working on:

I hope that helps a bit!
This is Page 25 from the new Tangled Fashionista book.

I am going to Maine for my UN-Tangle Retreat - tomorrow!?- but when I get back next week, I will have these books available on my Bumblebat Etsy store. (I will have them available for CZTs too). I'll upload some more sample pics from the book. And, if you can wait to order it from me... (bribery follows)... you can get the books signed. Not enough? OK, my copies also come with a bookmark of 4 body stickers (removable tattoos). More?! OK, I have some "secret" extra pages you'll be able to download, print out, and color!

And, speaking of retreats, my workshop at The Midwest Art and Lettering Retreat has only a few spots left! I know it is not until August, but it's almost full! Wowza. I have heard that everyone who has signed up is a CZT (Certified Zentangle® Teacher) - so that takes the class to a new level. If you are a newbie, this isn't the class for you. But don't worry, Linda and I are working on some other ideas for retreats later this year. That is assuming this weekend goes well! ;-)

My daughter has an ear infection and this morning, she said "Hi mommy! My tummy feels funny...." then ran into the bathroom and starting puking. Ugh. And it snowed last night and I can't get my car out of the carport to go to The Belfry and fill orders and finish packing stuff. I still need to wash clothes, et al... and have I mentioned how excited and nervous I am!? Eeeek. But it's going to be fine. Fine. Just fine. I just feel really bad for my retreater from Arizona whose flight was canceled and she can't get another one in time. :-( We'll have to put together some goodies to send her from the weekend so she can do a mini-retreat at home.

Well... it IS really beautiful outside right now.
