Something exciting!

So, a few weeks back Donna Hornsby, a fellow CZT, issued a challenge on the CZT Facebook group to post a Zentangle® a week.  You can see my tiles here, here, and here - but i found that i really wished that there was an actual challenge other than just doing one.  I wanted something to force me out of my Zentanglin' comfort zone - as my tiles tend to look similar because i get stuck in a rut.

I asked around to see if there was any concrete challenges, and what i found was - no, there wasn't a concrete challenge every week, but that that there was some interest in having something like that.

So, i decided that maybe i'd just start posting a weekly challenge here on my blog.  For a few reasons -

1.) Not all the CZTs are on facebook or are part of the facebook group that is only open to CZTs
2.) yes, it's a challenge to the CZTs out there, but also to any one else who's interested in playing along.  Fans of Zentangle, oldies, newbies... everyone and anyone. 

If you have a blog of your own, you can leave your name and a link to the post with your tile.  If you don't have a blog, you can email your tile to me, and i'll post it.  (Find my email at the "Contact" tab up above)

Check back here every Monday for the next weekly challenge.

This is my first attempt at a big group activity like this, so we'll see how it goes.  I have a list of a challenges, but if you have any ideas or have a challenge you'd like to issue - you can email that to me as well.  i will give you props, cuz i'm sweet like that.

So! I'll see you all back here on Monday - ready for the challenge!

Laura, CZT
