Home Again, Home Again

So, I started writing this week from 30,000 feet (although I won’t post it until we land!) It’s been a lovely vacation, but I am excited to be going home. 

We have had a grand adventure, made some new friends, reconnected with old ones, and made memories that will last us forever. It makes me thankful for all the people and good things I have in my life. And it turns out, this past weekend was Thanksgiving in Canada, so that was pretty timely! The weather has finally turned a corner here, hopefully for the season, and I can revel in all things Fall (except Pumpkin Spice Latte’s…I hate those…)

In celebration of the Canadian version of my favorite food fest, Diva challenged us to do the tangle Gourdgeous. Now…this is not my favorite tangle (don’t tell anyone) but I have done it a few times. To get myself in the fall festive mood, I sprayed a little walnut ink and orange sparkly ink on my tile and let it dry, then tangled with the Sepia Micron. About the 3rd gourd, I was really starting to like it! I did not shade this one, because of the colored background, but I did use a white pen to make some highlights.

I spent the last weekend of my vacation at Tangle EU with the most lovely European Certified Zentangle Teachers. We had so much fun! I learned a few things, some new ways of doing some things I already thought I knew, and had a grand time! I was super thrilled to reconnect with my fellow CZT 14 alumni Maria Tovar!

And to meet lots of new people!

And…drum roll…I even finished all but 2 of my projects (still working on the Notan and the Opus tile. That might take me another couple days.)

The venue was beautiful, and the food was awesome. I even had traditional English breakfast. 

What a great way to wind up our European adventure, and I really look forward to seeing these great ladies again!

We spend our last afternoon in London, wandering the city as much as we could, walking a total of 9 miles! 

Keep tangling…it will keep you from being too crazy my friends!
