About me

I am new to this site, but not to creating. I have been doing some kind of art or craft since I was very young. I make jewelry and consider it a wearable art. I have recently done some earring, necklace and bracelet pieces using my form of art. I also make journals, do altered books and just about altered anything.

I recently retired and now have time to do all those things that have been buzzing around in my head. Having been a life long doodler I have started doing Zentangle and Zentangle inspired pieces, as well as my regular doodling.

Hi J L, Wow that arrived quickly! Glad you liked it all.  The paper was actually for using with a die, it is called 'quick release die cutting paper' . I don't really use it for that but I just love the patterns and use it in my journals etc, its so pretty and cheap!  Have fun with the goodies.  Chow.  Sandra

Hi J L,

I am happy to accept your friendship request.  It looks like we have a lot in common.  I was a doodler long before it became Zentangle but I never thought it would become an art form in the sense it is today.  I have however kept the the trait of being detail-oriented which is very much a part of doodling.  I love your black and white pieces.

Keep in touch,
