Thank you all very much for the kind words, prayers, and support during this difficult time. Your support helped and was greatly appreciated. I am so touched by the kindness of the Zentangle® community. I always knew it was a positive community in general, but it’s something else to be on the receiving end of all that kindness when you’re at a low point. Thank you all.
Here’s the current situation with Tangle List. I’ve got a few more posts scheduled after this one. Most of these posts are about catching up on news from last year. After those scheduled posts are published, updates and new content will be more sporadic. It’s not like Tangle List ever had a “regular” posting schedule, but I’m still taking things on a day-to-day basis, and February is lining up to be a busy month for me. If Tangle List goes silent for awhile, this is why.
Thanks again for your support and patience. Here is a full list of updates to the website so far since the last Tangle List Update.
