Twelve Days of Christmas 

On the first day of Christmas

My true love gave to me

A treasure box of ATCs!

So begins our holiday blog series. We're midway through this series and we invite you to enjoy and comment.

After the twelve days are complete, we'll randomly select one of you who commented and send that person a "treasure box full of ATCs!" along with the pens and pencils you need to enjoy it.

After you finish reading this newsletter, come on over. We'll see you there!

New Zentangle Products


Actually, you may have seen some of these already, but until now, they've only been available to our Certified Zentangle Teachers (CZT).






Zentangle Travel Cup

We introduced this Zentangle ceramic, double-walled, 14 ounce travel cup at Seminar XIII:

This cup is a joy to tangle and make your own. Molly tangled the one above with a Sakura® IDentiPen®. 

Zentangle Travel Cup: $16.95
IDentiPen: $1.98




Zentangle Keepsake Box

Or, as Maria likes to call it, her "Treasure Box!" 


Imprinted with "Anything is possible, one stroke at a time™" and the Zentangle name and logo, this wooden box with hinged lid is designed to store your precious Zentangle square or ATC tiles. Outside, it measures 4.75" (120mm) square and is 2.75" (70mm) high. Inside it has enough room to comfortably hold over 100 tiles.


Use this for blank tiles or your finished art. It's a great gift for yourself and for other tanglers!


Zentangle Keepsake Box: $15.00






Zentangle Postcards

At our ninth CZT seminar, we began a tradition of commemorating each seminar with a new postcard. Each card is 5.5 x 8.5 inches (14 x 21.5 cm). We have created five so far!


Each card is fun example of tangling possibilities. It's a great way to share Zentangle art and have a resource of tangles and techniques close at hand.



"Birth of Zentangle" - Designed by Maria and tangled by Maria and Rick for our book, Maria added lettering to complete this card. Each: $2.50 



"Sepia Tangles" - Original art by Maria and tangled by Maria and Rick. Each: $2.50




"Draw Your Own Conclusions" - Maria and Rick tangled around a print of a mouse and quill that Maria had painted and Maria added the words. Each: $2.50






Pomegranate Postcard - Under this adaptation of Maria's pomegranate with pointed pen tangles Maria lettered, "Grow your creativity as you would a seed in your garden."  Each: $2.50 




Platter Postcard - Maria's lettered inscription reads,


Let's allow ourselves the power to embrace

the elegant opportunities that mistakes can offer.

How else can we go forward, create new images,

enjoy life as it presents itself?


This card was inspired by the cracked and tangled platter we blogged about in this blog post. Each: $2.50






Our Zentangle Holiday Tradition 
Kit with bow
As we mentioned in our previous newsletter, to help make your Zentangle gift extra special, Maria will hand-letter a gift card to accompany your Zentangle purchase. This is available through the end of the year. 
All you have to do is ask.
Just tell us the names you want for the "to" and the "from" in the Comment section as you check out online or tell us when you call in your order, but please, no long notes, just names.  

One of our wonderful CZTs who knows how we view patterns (tangles) as colors sent us this quote from Henri Matisse:
"What counts most with color are relationships. Thanks to them and them alone a drawing can be intensely colored without there being any need for actual color."  


We look forward to hearing from you on our "Twelve Days of Christmas" blog. Here's the link for Day 1.

Since we post blogs on a somewhat irregular schedule, when you visit our blog, there's a place for you to enter your email:

. . . and you'll get a note whenever we post a blog entry.


Thank you for playing with us on this wonder-filled Zentangle adventure.

With our best wishes to you and yours,


Rick and Maria
