I decided to make a big change this week. I bought a new Kindle Paperwhite (which I love by the way) but then realized I don't really read as often as I would like. I decided I was wasting too much time on my iPhone. Most of my time was being wasted playing games and I have a bit of problem being sucked in by that black hole known as Facebook. I decided to delete all the games off my phone. I left Facebook because of the connection to Zentangle but made a pledge to myself to not abuse it.
The effects were almost immediate. I was wasting 2 -3 hours a day on my phone and that's a conservative estimate. With this new found time I have almost finished a book, got 3 Zendala's done, and I was able to get quite a bit done on an organization project that I will be telling you about next month. It's amazing how productive you can be when you disconnect from just a bit of technology.
Now for another issue. Tonight I will finish my current book The Misremembered Man. I think I'm going to try The Kite Runner next but after that, then what? Anyone have any recommendations for me? I'm up for just about anything.
Zendala Dare #65
When I created this template I thought it was a little busy but I kept getting drawn back to it. The flower like parts around the edge are not my usual style but something about them really intrigued me. I LOVE the end result.

Most of the time I feel like my shading is a little on the light side. I have been making a real effort to being more heavy with my shading in an attempt to get more dimension. I have also been trying to add little details with my pen that gives my Zendala's a little more interest. I think I was successful on both counts with this one.
Remember to link up so we can all enjoy your work!
I would love it if you would leave me a book
