Zentangles, Calligraphy, an ear, and a cat? Oh, well…


Yep, it’s a cat. She walked on my sketch pad as I was taking pictures.

Bandit the cat

She was, well, being a cat. I can’t blame her, but every time I start to draw, doodle, or anything else not having to with my laptop, she promptly sits on it. I am just thanking my lucky stars she didn’t do that here. Don’t worry. I have other pictures of what she is walking on. You will get to see them, and you get to delve, once again, into an ADD mind busting at the seems with creativity and not knowing what to do first. It’s a curse. Read on, my intrepid and loving subscribers; read on.

I have been offline more then on because I have been under a lot of stress. This lead me to going to the Emergency Room with chest pains. Don’t panic! (Hit the button on your Hitchhiker’s manual.) Because of my bronchitis, all the coughing aggravated my chest wall, making it hard for me to breathe. I have good days and bad. This also lead to a blood pressure in the 150’s, not good. I have been trying to find a schedule that is less stressful, will let me work and post regularly, and still be able to craft. I am still trying to find that. It’s proving improbable, but I am not giving up. There have been a lot of things going on in my life, and I have been trying to deal with them.

I guess I have take a closer look at  what is important and what to let go and move on. Enough of my health problems and general blahs. You came here for the title. Let’s press on!

This is a design I toyed with when I started Zentangles in earnest. I wanted to really give it a go. I am happy with how it came out, but I have no clue what to do with other than stare at it in wonder, and still be surprised that I did that. Really, there are times I flabbergast myself. This was one of them.

Vulcan Ear

I have been toying around with other styles of Vulcan ears. I have moved my wire stock closer to me, and I am going to make a mock-up tomorrow or Friday. There will be pictures of the Mock-up. I am going to do one from the original post here, and the one of the left. There will be more styles on the way with a few Elf ears in the mix later on, but for now, I am starting with two, maybe three.

Now, for what I consider the fun part and possibly another jewelry idea. I have been practicing calligraphy on and off since I was twelve. This could be the beginnings of another obsession. Combining both of them and figuring out how to make them into clay pendants and bracelets. First, come the sketches. You will be seeing more of these. I think these are fun to do.

And then there is this. Playing around with flowers and Zentangles. I am not sure where I am going with this just yet, but I am sure it will lead to something, whether it’s small pieces of art or decorations for book covers, note cards, or other things. I am still working on it.

If you wish to see me try other styles of jewelry for cosplay, let me know. I am always up for trying new things.

As always, thank you for subscribing, God Bless you and stay crafty,
