I know I'm a little late posting this, but I've been busy. I received my certificate on October 14, 2011. All 100 of my classmates were thrilled to be certified. This means we have gone through very intensive training, but it was wonderful. When I got home, I just had to veg for a day or two to soak it all in. All of us can now officially teach our craft to others. It's an amazing journey I'm embarking on. It will probably take me where I thought I'd never go. But I'm sure I'll have fun along the way. If you're in Central Indiana and would like a class or more information, please comment below.

I was praying for my husband while he gave a talk during the Kairos Prison Ministry. I found it hard to just pray. So I decided to tangle. The tile below is what came out of it. Can you see the symbolism that came from this experience. When I was done, I was amazed at the design and what it could all mean. Hope you like it.

This is my official graduation certificate. I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher. Watch this blog for more excitement and news about classes and ways you can share in this wonderful experience. Providence, RI, was fantastic! Our instructors and founders, Rick and Marie, are two of the most beautiful people. I met people from all over the world. And they all love this art as much as I do. Hopefully, my blog will look differently soon, as I learn more about blogging and share what I have learned through beautiful pieces of Zentangle. CZT 7 was the greatest!

I wasn't going to do this week's challenge because I have many other projects I want to finish before I go to the conference next week. However, I was reading a post from an internet friend of mine, and I was moved to make this tile. It is dedicated to Lauren. She has fought breast cancer and WON! She has been sharing her journal on line, and her courage is amazing. In this tile, cancer may try and hold us back or "cage" us in. But Lauren hung on to the rope God gave her, and she perservered. She is my true hero. Lauren, you are always in my prayers.
I issued a challenge to my fellow attendees to the 7th Certified Zentangle Teacher's training. We are to create on an official 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" tile an interpretation of our time together. It was to contain either the number seven and/or seven original tangles by Rick and Marie. We will put them together for a collage when we gather in Providence, RI, next week. Below is my contribution. I used the Roman Numerals for seven and used the tangles: Keeko, Xyp, Hibred, Meer, Cadent, Assunta, Tendrills, and Shattuck. Aww, gee. I just realized I used eight tangles. Well, I was always one to break the rules. At least I used the right number. <Wry smile;-)>
