Yes, it does seem like I have been holed up in a cave. There's some stuff going on in my personal life that is causing chaos and mayhem, but possibly, in a good way. When things stop quaking I'll write more about that. For now, please accept my apologies for "disappearing". Here are a bunch of things to help catch up:

In a recent post, I introduced Carole Ohl and mentioned she was working on a piano mural. Well, take a look at her blog to see how the creation is progressing - "Music to My Eyes" Piano Mural. Oh-mi-gosh. Is it selfish - and un-Zentangle-y - of me to want to own something of hers?

A very nice review of AlphaTangle and also one of Totally Tangled, by Linda Farmer at

If any of you folks are Amazon users, could you please, please, please, leave some ratings and reviews on the AlphaTangle page? Totally Tangled has 17 reviews - pretty cool! And they are really nice things to read when I am feeling down in the dumps!

Speaking of which! (Books, not dumps!) I am planning the sequel to Totally Tangled. Yes - shocking isn't it? I thought I poured every single thing I knew into that book and what more could I possibly write about... well, I've thought of a few things, but I would really like to know what you all would like to see in the next book? More tangles, more in-depth tips, projects.... Post your thoughts in the comments here.

Also, I would like to know... who are the superstars of the Zentangle® world? Traditional or cutting edge (we need to come up with a term to describe the Zentangle rebels... Zebels...Rebanglers... hmmm)? I have stumbled across some insanely amazing work being shown on Flickr and other blogs. But I'd like to know who have you discovered? (Post a link in the comments) And yes, if YOU are amazing - let us know!!!
