Purple Haze Zentangle

I practiced the Zentangle pattern "Mooka" with this drawing. I drew this on my iPad with just my finger. I'd like to try printing some of my drawings to see how they look. Maybe I should buy a canvas at the craft store and see what I can create the old fashioned way? I'm a little nervous with that for some reason. I have a nearly empty sketchbook but tons of Zentangle digital drawings. =)

I tried to get Isaiah interested in drawing over the summer. He's entering kindergarten next month and I figured he'd be a little like his Mama and like to do art. No such luck yet =( ... I did get him interested in printable online mazes. He likes to me print mazes for him. Coloring books are still not cool to him though?

it's so hot! but I love it!

I love how this picture turned out on Instagram. This picture is of a field about 3 blocks down from my home. I actually used quite a few apps on my iPod with some filters to achieve this effect. I can't wait until the iPod 5 comes out. I hope it has at least as good camera as the iPhone currently does so I can print some of these photos.

Today its blazing HOT outside. I want go to the beach so bad! My grandmother was just placed in a nursing home yesterday - so I am going to go visit her instead.

Minnie Mouse

I was at the library with the kids today and I saw this Minnie Mouse sitting on a shelf. I got fancy with some filters and I think it made a pretty cute artzy shot for Instagram :-) If you own an iPod or iPhone you *must* get an Instagram account - its endless fun getting artsy with everyday photos :-)

Oh! and I also recently wrote an article about Tips on How to Stop Waiting in Long Lines. Hope you find it helpful =-)
