You all amaze me!

You have visited my blog 40,000 times since 4 December 2010 - that is just amazing.   I am amazed at how many want to "follow" me.   You know that when you follow my blog I go check out yours and some of your links too ... it is amazing how diverse and interesting and talented we all are. So many have left lovely comments which have given me a boost when I've needed it.   I love that you love what I do.   It is unfortunate that a lot of artist minds feel like they haven't done enough or what they have done isn't good enough ...  who said "Don't worry about perfection, you'll probably never reach it" - what great advice just get on and make your art.

I also received a special little package in the mail today that told me that "All art requires courage".  Oh how special that makes me feel, albeit a little teary.   It was like a little hug all wrapped up in love and packaged into an envelope - I will keep it to myself for a little longer though, so I can cherish the sentiment and love that came with it.

In the meantime ... I can share with you all and say thank you for visiting my blog ... leaving messages or just visiting and making that little counter tick over - I know you have been here and that means a lot to me.

So I will give you "L for Love"  with a few Zentangle patterns and a few of my own mixed intogether.

Hugs
Jane

  13. Hello Jane,
    You are an inspiration to me and I just love looking at your zentangles. I use you to encourage me to do as well as I can do. Your patterns are so individually beautiful.
    Keep on keeping on. I think I have heard that somewhere before.
