A pleasant surprise….

We hope you have had a special Thanksgiving day with family and/or friends and remembered to be thankful for all the liberties we have here in the United States of America. And for the great food, of course!
I love to see your Zentangle art and recently Blaine Street from my very first class sent me this great pumpkin that he made. Enjoy!

A Friendly Reminder…

The holidays are upon us, so schedules get full for many people. Because of this, we will make accommodations so here are our changes:
Heart Tanglers will meet THIS MONDAY at the Tazewell Public Library on Dec 14 from 6-8pm. These meetings are free and always a fun time of sharing our artwork, ideas, questions and info as well as good camaraderie. Bring your supplies for tangling or you can purchase from Kat (me) or David if you are getting low on tiles, pens or other things. 
Please note that these meetings are for those folks who have already attended a class or who have some experience with Zentangle.

 

Remember…we will not be meeting on December 26th

 
 

A brand new American! Bear and the judge.

 
I coudn’t resist this photo!
He Did It!…

After a 15 year journey, my husband David (“Bear”) finally became a naturalized US CITIZEN! The Oath Ceremony was December 3 in Abingdon, VA. The photo above was taken as he received his certificate from the judge. THAT is what a new citizen looks like! He and 10 others were beaming after making America their official home. Bear is thrilled that he is going to be able to vote in the presidential election!
Wytheville Museum has contacted me and asked that I start teaching classes there Saturday, January 16 2016, 2-5 PM. I am willing to teach anywhere, including private or individual classes. I will also teach another Basics: Zentangle 101  at the Appalachian Art Center in January.
Please feel free to pass this email to those whom you think might want info on classes. Ask them to write to me at Heart.Tangles@gmail.com for more information or to be added to this newsletter mailing list. 
And now, I’ll close with some recent tiles of my own….. I’ve created three new tangles which I will teach at the Monday meeting if anyone is interested.

Keep on Tangling!

The Whistle Pig

Standard
The Whistle Pig

Here in central Appalachia – “The Heart of the Appalachian Mountains” – there is a vocabulary like no other. I used to be very articulate and grammatically correct- a language snob. Then I moved to Appalachia. 

Now I have an accent and have adopted the culture and vocabulary. One of my favorites is the whistle pig. You may know him as the groundhog. He even has his own day on February 2nd. 

When they sense danger is afoot, they sit up on their haunches and whistle! 

They live in colonies and travel in a network of underground tunnels. They go six feet deep and forty-nine feet long- each tunnel! 

Well, we have two tunnel doors 🙂 in our yard (on the back bank) and we get to see the chubby critters occasionally. However, when Bella and I went for a run (me in my chair) we saw a whistle pig near us. I grabbed by camera and here is what I got. In a couple of pics, I can see myself in his eyes!

Click on the photos to see them a bit bigger….

 

we came upon him and he raced to his hole and peeked out.

  

uh oh, they are still here… should I whistle ?

    
  

They must be safe… time for lunch!

 
Have a great day and look out for the whistle pigs along the road!
