Zendala Dare #28

Well its a day of firsts for me.  Today is my first day at a my new paramedic job and my first time doing a blog post at work!  The new company I am working for is very different from my other job.  It's a little slower, I have a house where we wait for calls, and most importantly I get to wear yoga pants when I'm not on calls!  If you don't think that last one is a big deal then you've never spent 24 uncomfortable hours in heavy polyester pants that never seem to fit quite right.  

The slower pace coupled with a permanent station gives me the ability to work on my blog, Zentangle, and watch reality TV that I don't want my husband to know I indulge in!   Don't get me wrong, I still love working at my other paramedic job but this new one is a nice change of pace and hopefully will be a nice adjunct to my nursing school schedule starting January.  

Last week I asked you all to take a guess at what my next "milestone" and would be and I promised a little gift for the winner.  Well, the winning answer, provided by Magda Aurora, was 100,000 page views.  So Magda, I will be contacting you shortly to get your address so I can send out your gift.  

Then I got to thinking.  All the other suggestions were so good that I should acknowledge them all with a giveaway so we will be having giveaways for the following events when they occur:


  • The 50th Zendala Dare (I can barely fathom this one)
  • When I have a baby (that's a lot of pressure people!)
  • 250 followers
  • When I have 50 entries on the linky machine within 1 week after the Dare is posted (we are probably pretty close to this one)
  • The 1 year anniversary of the Zendala Dare

So now you have a template and a whole lot of giveaways to look forward to!


Zendala Dare #28

This weeks template is pretty straightforward, at least in my opinion.  It has a mix of straight and curved lines so it should appeal to most of you.






Tangles:  Lotus Pods, Crescent Moon, Purk,
Echoism, DL Sunray
Many times I will try to leave some negative space when creating a Zendala but this template would not allow it!  No matter how hard I tried the template kept yelling "No negative space, please not negative space"  Let me tell you something, a talking template is a creepy thing so just do what is says and no one gets hurt.  

Have a great week and remember to link up below.

  9. How fun! I toyed with the idea of shading in the "eggs" in the middle, but decided I liked the simplicity of it as is.

  13. I love this template, Erin! I'll definitely be using it again and again =). Woot! for being able to wear yoga pants when you're not on calls -- being in comfortable clothing at work makes such a difference in how a person feels!!
