I truly appreciate your offer, Georgia, but a month is too tight of a turnaround for me with this type of project so even though I loved the idea, I won't sign up. Everyone should still be good to go. I just thought the sign up time frame was inappropriate. <--not the word I'm trying to think of but it's late and I'm tired and that's as close as it's going to get at this point

I'm prolly a little testy that no one gave me head's up about it too since I expressed a lot of interest in it but I'm irritated in general right now so I could be wrong about that.

I got my secrets!!! Yay!!! They were all great, thank you everyone who participated! Also thank you, nycfem, for the little gift bag. I so enjoyed opening it.

GeorgiaMa'am 08-17-2020 10:07 PM

My post secrets came too! Wow, we have some great secrets. And I will keep them forever.

Hello Penpal Friends - I suppose now is as good a time as any to tell those of you who don't already know, I have cancer. Yesterday I found out my surgery will be on September 24. This means that I will have to send out all the Zentangle packets on September 22-23. This also means that everyone must get their packets to me on the final-final due date of September 21, or it will end up sitting in my mailbox for who knows how long, and then who know what will happen to it after the election when Postmaster General Louis DeJoy gets his hands on it again. Your late projects could end up decorating some politician's office or in the hands of a disgruntled postal worker. Don't let this happen to you! Getting your projects to me in a timely way will be most appreciated.

Thanks!

Zentangle Art Project

I did it! I finally put pen to paper and started my first piece. I finally got my ideas together in my head, and did some doodles on scrap paper, and now I'm working on the real thing. I'm a little short on ideas for how to incorporate color into these, as I'm not used to using color with Zentangle - for some pieces I've got it all lined up, others not so much. But I really want to use color with these.

How is everyone else doing?

nycfem 09-02-2020 11:34 PM

I finished them and really enjoyed making them. I had some anxious moments where I wasn't sure what direction I was going in but I just had faith in the process and followed my muse... not to be too New Age or anything. However, I keep forgetting to mail them... I incorporated some color and enjoyed doing so :).

nycfem 09-02-2020 11:35 PM

I also want to add how much I appreciated how much freedom there was in this project in regard to options.

I've made a couple of practice pieces and I think I've finally figured out which one(s) I like best.

You know I like to over achieve and make many. However, with this move in a few weeks and working 48+ hours...I will need to sleep. Lol!


nycfem 09-03-2020 12:04 AM

I had to scrap a few of my first tries (sucks when you put a lot of work in) because my concept was a little complex for me lol. You know when you get something in your mind and then find it's kinda harder than it seemed lol. But ultimately I achieved it to a passable extent lol.

Dear Pen Pal Friends,

I have made a gross overestimation in my capabilities. I had no idea there would be so many doctor's appointment and procedures before my actual day of surgery.I am so very busy - and admittedly, also so very tired - that I have neglected to send you my address for you to forward your projects to.

Fortunately, nycfem has graciously agreed to take over wrangler duties for this project. I'm sure she will contact you soon with her mailing address. Please send you projects directly to her, and she will redistribute them.

I will also add my name at the bottom of the list and take myself off of projects for the next six months. I will miss you guys and our projects so much! But I'm sure I will drop in to say hello, as well as seeing you around BFP in other threads.

I'm sorry for this snafu, and I hope it doesn't inconvenience any of you. I also hope you are enjoying your art projects!

Best Regards,
GeorgiaMa'am

Dear pen pal friends,
I'm so sorry to say I just couldn't get my shit together for the zentangles. I apologize deeply to those who took the time to make me one. I feel really bad, but life happened.

nycfem 09-30-2020 08:30 PM

Hey, everyone, whether you are on a 6 month hiatus or not participating in projects for any reason- you are still very welcome on this thread. The more the merrier. :)

CCB and GeorgiaMa’am posted that they were unable to participate.

Yay! Mail in my mail box!

I received the project pack. Thank you NYC for stepping in.

I was wondering if you could see my name in the watermelon???


Bèsame* 10-15-2020 03:39 PM

Crafters!!!

I have been unpacking my craft stuff. My mind is a wondering. I thought of a holiday project, that can open doors to other creative peeps.

What about a fav holiday recipe? Not just a cookie, but a dessert, or a drink or even a jello mold. Think about it....anyone interested?
