Taxes and a Dare



Every year, no matter how many thousands of dollars I've already contributed, it seems the government wants a little bonus come mid-April. And, IMO, they haven't done a whole heck of a lot to earn it.
So... every year, I procrastinate on doing my taxes. This year, I'm two whole days early! (Hold on a sec, while I mentally give myself a gold star...ok, I'm back!) As luck would have it, the amount due this time around was only uncomfortable, as opposed to last year's outright painful.

Have you done your taxes yet?

Given this morning's anxiety level, I thought this would be a great time to mention a new link-up, hosted by Erin @ The Bright Owl : Zendala Dare. Now, if you happen not to be familiar with Zendala, please allow me to enlighten you because it is a fabulous stress-reliever.

Look closely at the tiles and you'll see faint gray
line in various patterns...

You can buy "pre-strung" Zendala tiles in beautiful patterns which you simply fill in with whatever tangles you want. OR, you can go to The Bright Owl and download the Zendala that Erin designed for us this week. Either way, having the string already there and only needing to be filled makes this a fun, super-easy Zentangle project, and a good way to relax post tax-stress. Here's what I came up with for this week's dare:

tangles: waves, beau, jonqal, rick's paradox, florz, efilys,
boomerangs, bales, marasu, tortuca
Go try a Zendala! I promise you won't be disappointed!


  1. Jenn, this is awesome. You really have a flair for shading. Thanks for taking the 'Dare'!

  2. This is so lovely! One can sit and look at it for a very long time. Good job!

  3. Fabulous!!! I have to get mine done also!

  4. I love the dimension you gave this with your shading -- it really pops!


Your lovely comments make my day!
