"Just wanted to say WOW! I learned so much. Perhaps the best lesson was to not worry . . . everything can be fixed. I would have given up before I started almost without that constant encouragement and example. I followed you, step by step in recreating the same thing you were demonstrating. All went well until the Arukas when I dragged the still-wet blue gelly roll ink into my yellow with my hand while working on another area. Even that could be fixed. Thank you for another great class!"

"What a great lesson! I enjoyed this even more than the live one at Tangle U. The bright colors certainly take Zentangle to a whole new level. Not having been trained in art, your lessons provide me with much needed theory to complement the practice and adding artistic flair to my tangling. Thank you for all the handouts that go along with this lesson, too. Best wishes,"
