Day Two

     Today I made my block for the  Internet Round Robin I have signed up for.  I need to get it mailed off tomorrow to be "official".  Then in a few weeks, I will get someone else's block...add a border....then send it off to someone else for another border...I will receive another one...etc. until I get mine back!  We are not to post pictures of what we are working on it its entirety so it will be a surprise.
      The Diva is taking a few weeks off from the Zentangle challenges so I have improvised my own challenge!   I am doing the Alphabet with the zentangle designs inside each letter with patterns starting with that letter.
     This year I have decided to join a class called "One Little Word". It is sponsored by a website Ali has established for many creative classes and ideas.  I didn't realize that the main focus on the site is scrapbooking which I am not into in a big way, but I do like journaling and that seems to be a secondary emphasis...and I love words so the title of this workshop is what caught my eye.
      My word for the year is NATURE!  I don't know for sure what we are going to do with one word all year..."lessons"/ideas will be forth coming.  But until that happens, I am going out on a limb on my own and begin:
