Covid-19 got you down? Take your mind off it with these amazing things:

  1. The tapestry maker who took art one step further.
  2. Choreographer Twyla Tharp’s thoughts on aging.
  3. A crochet version of the coronavirus.
  4. Some beautiful quilts!
  5. What would happen if you drew every day?
  6. I have often fantasized about working on a cruise ship. Here’s the lowdown.
  7. Acquire these habits to increase your writing productivity.
  8. Underwater photography.
  9. Things to do while self-quarantined.
  10. Squirrels like you’ve never seen them before.
  11. Entomology in stitches.
  12. Steampunk sculptures.

The Valentine’s Day edition of CJ. Wishing you lots of love.

Valentangles

Standard

A few years ago I started a tradition of posting a bunch of Zentangle® valentines in February. Last year I thought I coined a new term: Valentangle. This year I discovered there has been a Valentangle challenge for several years already, so I didn’t invent the word.

I tried to join the Valentangle2020 Facebook group (in fact, I tried several times), but I never got approved. I don’t know if it was a glitch, or I missed a secret deadline, or they really don’t want me.

Anyway, I’m still calling these Valentangles.

This one uses the pattern Ixorus:

This one combines Snail and Florz:

This design is called Pepper. Doesn’t it look like a zebra?

This one uses the design Mistrel:

fullsizeoutput_eb1

This one is filled with Double S:

This might be my personal favorite of the group. Drupe:

I am calling this one “Heart Attack”:

This one uses Puffle, Onamato, and Luv-A. Puffle reminds me of ribbon candy.
