My Tangle of the day.. ok last two days !

Hello all !

I just wanted to post the tangle I have been working on for the last 2 days. I have to do it off and on as I am dealing with a lot of pain and trying to keep up with caring for Marvin . Speaking of him, please if you are a praying person, say a prayer for him to have some relief tonight (Monday April 19th, 2010) . We have been up and down all hours of the night and day for the last 4-5 days and I am wearing out ! They upped us Morphine today so I pray that will take care of it for a while . What a journey this has been !

Today's Tangle is of Marvin's left hand. I love his hands and want to always remember them. I think I scanned this and it is on it's side, but in the text that is in the journal it says how I love his hands and how they have held me, touched me, picked me up, wiped away a million tears and created so many beautiful things that make our house our home. He is a master furniture builder and does wonderful work without even making a pattern. Just gets a thought in his head and gets the wood to create it and off he goes ! AMAZING !!! Anyway, he bought me a new 8x5 1/4 Moleskine Sketchbook Journal. I love it to pieces ! In the Flickr Zentangle group several of the ladies have Zentangled in their hand print. I loved the idea but wanted to do his hand first ! He thought I had lost my mind when I first had him lay his hand in the opened journal and proceeded to lightly draw around his hand with a pencil !!! I just said " Please just sit still Honey, I will show you later what I am doing with it !" He just smiled at me and said "Ok Honey..whatever makes you happy !!" Gotta love this man ! hehehe !! He got such a kick out of watching me tangle on his hand and is really proud of what I did with it. I am too and I do not say that about my own artwork often. Well, I am my own worst critic and have battled that stinking thinking from the past "I'm not good enough... etc... ! " So I am learning to accept what I have done as good enough for today. Tomorrow I will learn more and have had more practice in Zentangle.

So here it is.. or up there it is.. I can't remember ! LOL!!! Thanks for stopping by and visit often. I hope to do more with my blogspot as time allows.

Hugs to all... Kristy.. aka Rose Twofeather at FLickr


  1. Hi Kristy, it's Kass here (sunnyhall on flickr).
    I just found your blog, I have recently started one too.
    I wish you and Marvin all the best - I have survived cancer 3 times (I am 32) and he is fighting a tough fight, no doubt, but love and prayer and the wonderful wisdom of doctors can all help to get you both through! I wish you well and will check in periodically to see how Marvin is faring.
    As you know I adore your Zentangles and your art so keep up your amazing work, it is so inspiring!

  2. Hi Rose Twofeather
    you and Marvin are in my thoughts everyday, we have a good friend who lives close by also fighting the Cancer battle. He is strong and brave too.
    Early this morning we had a thunderstorm and lightening strike so our power has gone off. We are on tank water so need a pump therefore I can't have a shower or make a cup of tea. The power went off at 6 am it is now 9am. Just a small glinch in our daily life, lucky I don't have to be anywhere today. No complaints from me I will just do a zentangle...no power required!!

  3. This is PRECIOUS!!! Thank you for sharing from your heart. Hope your honey feels better soon!
