Hear that smug tone of voice? That is because Tami is terribly UNartistic. I can make pretty envelopes with stickers . . . I can write 'purty' . . . I used to stitch but I can NOT draw and that has always bothered me. I wanted to be one of those people who could pick up a pencil and draw something that wasn't a stick person. So, I heard about this style of drawing called Zentangle and it was described as "doodling on steroids". I bought the basic supplies and today Nicole and I went to a coffee shop and gave it a try.
I am DELIGHTED to report that it turned out fantastic. Both of us are very pleased with how our first attempts turned out. We made three of the cards each and grew increasingly confident and excited. Now I have returned to the craft store and bought more materials and Nicole and I will be creating presents and other fun stuff together over the next few weeks.
For the very first time EVER, I look at this work and think Hey, maybe I am a little artistic. Good feeling. I'm happy.
