First try


Recently there was a new tangle from HQ: Ratoon.
I had not tried this one, so the Challenge provided the opportunity for me.

Last night I had time to try it and ... it was not as difficult as it looked, but also not very easy.
I love this tangle, especially when I saw on FB what others can do with it. Maybe I will be able to do better in the future, but now I had little time and still wanted to be in the Challenge so this tile is the best I could do now.


I will probably not be able to comment much this week, because tomorrow I will go for a two days training for the hospice. There is quite a busy program and we stay in a hotel.
So, sorry and I'll try to do better next week.

Thank you for visiting my blog!!

Stripes and more stripes


Stripes as a string for Challenge 382.

Right away I knew I wanted to put the stripes in a circle. Took a tile that was done with the Gelli Plate method (you can see the size of my small Gelli Plate being pink) and put a circle on it. The pink is really shining, but the scan doesn't show that.
Then the stripes and ... the tangling could begin.

I had a zen time doing this!

WOW ..... a zendala group!!!!



Wow and more WOW!
Doing this zendala I just remembered how much I loved doing this. Long ago, when there was the Dare of Erin. Only now I know how much I missed doing this.

So, I'm very happy and grateful to Annette for starting this 'group'.

What more to say, then that I loved every second I was working on it. After tangling, I did the blue accents with a Derwent Inktense pencil and some water.

This is my zendala:

A new medium


'A happy new medium' is the subject of Challenge 381.
To be honest, I have quite some pens I have not (or hardly) used yet so a great opportunity to do so.
I took fine Sharpies and nice, but hard to draw on even with a Sakura pen, paper and started. Right from the start I knew this was not the best decision ever, but as always I go on what I started.
The good thing is, that I tried and know now that I better use these pens for something else.

The result is below, nothing much, but I did meet the challenge :-)

2019: a lot of .........


2019 and Laura's 'Diva challenge' blog is there for 8 years now! Congratulations, Laura!

2019 a new year with new opportunities. For some of us this will become a great year, for others not so great, we don't know what the future brings. What we do know, is that we're all tanglers and always try to be there for each other if needed. I'm still proud to be part of this community and thankful to Laura for starting it!!!

2019 did not start very well for Kees and me. I became ill with the flu on December 30th, did feel horrible but stayed up al night for Kees. Don't know if that was really nice for him, because most of the evening I was sleeping in my chair.
Next morning Kees was ill too, so we were just hanging in bed or in our chairs for days. Sleeping a lot.
Last Friday I went to the doctor and he found out I had (light) pneumonia, not a real good thing with my COPD. After the weekend I did not feel much better and went to the doctor again. There was a need for antibiotics and that's what I'm taking now for seven days.
Still ill, but feeling a bit better since yesterday evening.

Also 2019 being a new year with Diva Challenges and this week the first one: circles as your string. As I don't have a paint spinner, I just traced some glasses and tangled in the circles. Loved doing this, especially because it is my first tangling after becoming ill.
To be honest, I do like the result.
