postheadericon In Memory of Tammy Giles



It is with great sadness to announce the passing of Tammy Giles this week.  May her quilt give her family comfort as they struggle with the loss of a wife and mother.  She was the first recipient of a quilt many years ago and it is a comfort to know she received many years of warmth from her quilt.

postheadericon Kathleen's Zentangle Art


Today's blog is about a classmate of mine who has embarked on a new adventure.  I've know Kathleen since kindergarten and we were fortunate enough to hook up on Facebook and reacquaint ourselves.
 
Her artwork using the Zentangle method is truly stunning.  I encourage anyone who has a yen to see the creativity of her original art to visit her website regulary.  Everytime I visit, I find another piece I simply must have.  A sample of one of her many pieces is shown here.  She sells her art in note cards and portraits in any size and she welcomes your input if you need a custom work.  Click her link and view her amazing talent.  A true artist with a passion for creating beauty in all that she sees.
