October Squares – Lines # 16 – Hand Lines


October Squares – Lines # 16 – Hand Lines

The Halfway Line


This is a fun, month long challenge, hosted by Becky of “The Life of B”. Thanks, Becky! 🙂

This month’s theme is Lines & Squares

We try to find & photograph anything with lines of any kind, such as straight, wavy, curved, etc.

The most important rule of this challenge is that your photo Must be Square!

To join in, find out the details, and see other entries, just click the above link. It’s fun!


This is a drawing my grand-son made. It is his hand, colored in black, with white lines going in all directions on it. He is learning all about Zentangles, and does all kinds of them, plus many more kinds of drawings. He’s a great artist, and just turned 10 years old. Of course that’s his Grammy’s proud opinion. 🙂

COLOR YOUR WORLD – MAGENTA untitled 1024x768-magenta-solid-color-background

Today’s color to match is called Magenta, which to me should be a red violet, even though this color swatch looks more like fuchsia or hot magenta, or hot pink.

Hey, happy Friday!

For Day # 6 of NaBloPoMo I wanted to post something a little more for fun. So…here’s an elephant I drew the other night. It is drawn along the lines of a “Z I A” which is Zentangle Inspired Art. I’ve been drawing these for years, for fun. In case you’ve never heard of it, Zentangle® is a small piece of art, done in black and white, using specific trademarked patterns. It is for fun, relaxation, and also for artistic meditation. You can read all about it, and see lots of cool patterns to try, with instructions for them here …

For the Z I A art, you may use the patterns, make up your own patterns, and even have a specific outline to be filled in. They are fun to do.

Hope you’ll give this art form a try!

ART AND MORE PLANSzentangles and MO and misc 034

Hey, y’all! (typical way to say hello where I’m from) 🙂

Just wanted to post this picture I drew recently. It is one of my Zentangle and ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) … It’s lots of fun to do. I’ve done this type of drawing for years, but not long ago found it was actually called something specific.  ( I think if you click on it, it will enlarge.

I had trouble finding it on my computer. I’d taken the picture on my camera, then transferred it (among others) to the computer files…then couldn’t find it! I’ve spent hours looking, and trying different things, until finally did find it in a totally different place than in my picture files. Crazy, right? …Well, that’s how it goes with me and technology…trial and error for the most part.

So, I don’t know what to do next on this here blog. I made it through the A to Z Challenge, and I’ve done all these random catagories, as you know, and still plan on adding more to those, at some point. I have a few more of the true ghost stories, but until I remember more instances of weird things happening, I need to do other things. I have a few ideas.

I could post some of my art…besides Zentangle, I do acrylic paintings.

I will be doing more poems, whenever I can (read…whenever I can think one up) 🙂

I may post a year of my diary entries from when I was 10 years old… some are pretty funny ( I did that once on FB) and yes, I’ve been writing stuff for years and years. 🙂

I kind of want to do those Daily Post prompts, too. I read what other bloggers have done, and stories always come to mind that I could tell, but haven’t yet.

Anyway, what do y’all think? What do you like to read on here? I’d be happy to hear any suggestions you may have. 🙂

I’ll, wish y’all a happy, peaceful day with lots of love and laughter! 🙂

Peace ~ }i{ …(that’s supposed to be a butterfly)
