Floating with the Fuzzies

I think I set a record for myself for days gone without tangling: 5 days! The flu bug flew into our house again, and got me good. I know there are some people who can go through their normal day even if they have the flu (heck, I see it in commercials all the time!), but I'm not one of those. I camp on the couch with my cats and kleenex and wait for the Flu Fuzzies to go away. (I am naturally a couch potato so this isn't all that bad!)
   The part I don't like is how messed up the dreams get. And of course, Zentangles come and go all through the dreams, but not in a good way. All night long I find myself trying to control and make right all the lovely lines in my head. Controlling a Zentangle isn't much fun. Letting one happen is all the fun.
   So, I waited for the Fuzzies to leave me, and then I finished my calendar. I also found Laura Harm's new challenge, can I say-- a breath of fresh air for me. Such a simple thing: breathe. But such an essential thing. It's the perfect little nudge I needed to get started again. I'm looking forward to my time with this challenge!
   In the meantime, I present the end of January 2011, and onward to the next wonderful month ahead! I hope those of you who are playing with the Tangle-a-Day calendar are having just as much fun!

  1. Wow, that January page is fantastic. I'd love to have a print out of that for design inspiration. I'm curious...are all the tangles you drew documented designs or are some your own spontaneous creations.

  2. Thanks, Terri. Most of them are documented, some are spontaneous. I started them alphabetically, and many took on a life of their own: tangleations!

  3. I love this month of tangle! I'm sorry to hear you're under the weather; maybe you can "tie it up in tangles" and leave it behind with January...hehehehee
