I know I've been remiss. I have been so busy with school and the new job. I'm in that crazy "home stretch" time when you're uber-busy but the call of spring fever is too strong.

I miss doing all my creative stuff: writing, drawing, knitting, crocheting, sewing...

I definitely have NOT been doing my DRAW365, but I have been doing little spurts of doodling and writing. I really need to draw and write. I feel like I'm about to have a "creative explosion", it's like there's something simmering under the surface just waiting to get out but I just can't tell what that is yet. I figure I need to get back into the habit of free-writing and steadily doodling to help that "mind-wraith" pop to the surface.

In my google search for doodles I discovered ZENTANGLES!
This has got to be one of the coolest things that I've discovered. I'm not downstairs so I can't scan my examples in, but I'll point you to three different examples I found online (there are so many more, but I do have papers to write. Grad school is a B*@&%CH!) Anyway...

1. Maggie's Nest: Patty's blog looks very cool. It seems like we have a lot of the same hobbies. Her first attempt at Zentangles are here.

2. Daily Art Muse: Another really cool art blog. Susan just tried them too. Her review is here.

3. D.I.Y. Planner: Cool blog that makes you want to buy moleskine notebooks. Review is here.
