This season is flying by and we have so much to share. In this newsletter we'll catch up a bit with 
  • Awesome stories and ideas we've recently received
  • Cool new products we released at seminar

Zentangle Sharings

We receive so many wonderful emails. We are thrilled to share some with you so that you can enjoy them with us.

Dear Rick, Maria and Molly,

The VW-Bus is ready and really beautiful. Today I've written a long blog about the event, the bus, the people and the Magic. You will find it here. I hope the translation-button will help you.

There were 14 tangler two days drawing on that bus, of course without eraser. They had the steps in their head and the pen in their hand and painted directly on the bus. 

I've never before felt so much concentration, happiness and peace in such a different group for such a long time. Our little sweet Ameli is 4 years and our brilliant  Irene is 69 years old. There was not one moment of disharmony that day. When the tanglers came to Kirchberg, I just knew Kathrin Bendel, my CZT-colleague. When the tanglers left, there were leaving 14 new and good friends and we are all still in contact.

My husband and I were shading and completing the patterns over 4 weeks. It was very special to touch the drawing of our new friend to awake it.

It wasn't just to tangle a bus, it was a really magic event with lot moments filled with zen.

Kind regards

Ela and Tom Rieger
& friends

Be sure to check out their blog later . . . lots more great pix!


My wife and I just finished our first Zentangle class with Carol Dee, CZT in Frederick MD.

We thoroughly enjoyed the class, learned a lot from a very enthusiastic teacher, and hope to continue with a class with our 12 year old granddaughter. I also ordered your first book and hope to learn more and improve over time.

Being a sculptor, I hope to use the Zentangle skills I learned when finishing a series of relief wall panels 12" x 48".

Sincerely,  --G


Hi Rick, Maria, and Molly -

I hope you are enjoying your summer.  I am always in a place of gratitude, loving my "Zentangle career".  I needed a positive life change, and Zentangle has definitely providing me with that.  I just though I'd share these cute pics of a birthday party I did this week.

Take care,
Sheryl Bruck, CZT


Dear Rich & Maria,


During the loss of my mother back in 2011, I found the online community of Zentangle. While I found no-one in the Pacific NW teaching at that time, I found your book and YouTube post, and thus began my own journey of healing by purchasing your teal box of cards, pencil, and pen. I used a card each night and went through the whole set quickly.


Since then I have reconnected with my artistic self again and return to the process when I need it hit of 'zen'. 



I remain forever in loving gratitude for your gifts,  --GS



Hi Rick and Maria!  

There's not enough "wow" I can say about Zentangle. It all began in the Fall of 2013.  I discovered a Zentangle design created by a friend who had attended a local workshop.  I was captivated, excited, motivated, and in love! Since then I've been "tangling" something nearly every day. 

I love to share my tangles and look for inspiration far and wide. So when The Nature Conservancy announced a way to help save elephants from poaching by creating an "elegram" - I naturally thought of Zentangle!  

Thanks for everything!  --B


Thank you everyone for taking your time to share these wonderful treats with us all!

(More next time!)


New Zentangle Products

We like to create something new for our CZT seminars. Here are some new items that we introduced this year.



Bijou T-Shirt
Bijou has wanted this for a long time and he loves how it came out. This super soft, jersey tee shirt is the perfect platform for our friend Bijou.

Since Bijou is both male and female, (s)he insisted on this uni-sex version which is . . .
  • 50% polyester (6.25% recycled), 38% cotton (6.25% organic), 12% rayon. 
  • Regular fit.
  • Low-impact yarn-dyed and fabric-washed. 
  • Imperfect knit creates vintage striations just like your old P.E. T-shirt. 
  • 3/4" bound collar
  • Blind stitching on sleeves and bottom hem; side seemed. 
Such fun!

Available in sizes S-3XL. Please indicate in order comments which size you would like.

In this print, Maria has beautifully lettered the eight steps of the Zentangle Method. A border tangled by Maria and Rick complete this piece of art. 


A great way to bring light to the nurturing steps of creating art with the Zentangle Method.

We thought that print would make a great bookmark, so . . .


Each book mark is printed on durable card stock and measures 2.5" x 8.5" 


8-Steps Bookmark - $1.00 each




Anything is Possible one Stroke at a Time™ Print  

This print created by Maria and Rick is a beautiful collection of tangles featuring Maria's beautiful lettering of the Zentangle slogan, "Anything is possible one stroke at a time".

This 5.5 x 8.5 inch (14 x 21.5 cm) postcard joins a memorable collection of seminar postcards!
