Since in last week’s Tangled Tuesday post I took a break from the usual format so that I could share some thoughts on my CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher) Seminar 25 experience, today’s post is a huge catch-up of tangling news, work I finished prior to the seminar, and what I’ve been up to since I arrived back home. Hope you enjoy!
I’m thrilled to share that my CZT profile is now live on the Zentangle site! It looks like I’m the only CZT in my city (for now, at least!), though there are a couple of others in nearby areas.
I have a few organizational things I need to accomplish first, but once those are in place I’m looking forward to exploring opportunities to teach Zentangle to people in my community.
Since my previous Tangled Tuesday post I have learned the following new-to-me tangles.
Work in Progress
I’m afraid to say that my total of completed pages for my colouring book-to-be is still languishing at eleven, which means that if I actually want to reach my target of publishing it in the fall of this year it’s time for me to start setting some goals!
So let’s do this. I’ve decided that since this is my first book it’s going to be a small one containing just 20 drawings. With eleven done so far that leaves nine more to reach my goal, so if I complete just one per week going forward I will have finished all 20 by early September. Once the drawings are ready I’ll work on the book layout and formatting and, if everything goes according to plan, I should be ready to offer the completed product for sale by October at the latest. Goal met!
What do you think? It seems like a pretty reasonable schedule to me, and just to make sure I stay on track I’ve added a weekly reminder in my planner. Stay tuned for further updates!
