Black Hills Majesty, Part 2

  As promised, I am continuing from my last blog post which regale’s the time we spent in South Dakota this past May. Our trip through the Black Hills of South Dakota was extremely memorable. On my husband’s birthday, we climbed to the top of the highest peaks in the hills known has Harney Peak. Harney’s Peak…

Day Forty, Creation Forty

Okay gang! I finally made it to day forty! This little milestone is marks nearly the end of my 42 day journey from the book One Zentangle a Day. I definitely did not create a tile every single day, but I have for the most part drawn every day since starting this quest. The in…

Day Two, Creation Two
