Michigan Library Association Annual Conference

I had loads of fun sharing my Zentangle enthusiasm at the Michigan Library Association conference in Lansing this week!  I presented a poster on “Bringing Zentangle to Your Library” along with several other interesting and delightful librarians. I enjoyed encouraging Zentangle as a beneficial outreach program or staff development activity. Thank you to Kristy Doak and MLA for a great opportunity!! mla2016detailmla2016postermla2016reception

Stitch Together 2016!

I had the most wonderful time at the Detroit News on Wednesday, October 5th for the third “Stitch Together” !  Jocelyn Brown, who writes the “Handmade” column  was our gracious hostess for the afternoon–what a BLAST!  Sixteen knitters and crocheters from the Detroit area got to share projects, ideas, refreshments and fun!   Everyone brought beautiful, gorgeous items that they had made–WOW!  I shared my pattern for an easy knit cap and making “stuff” from recycled/upcycled papers.  easyknitcap  Of course, I was in heaven–and we were sitting in the Stevie Wonder room!   HANDMADE

Jane is Hosting a Contest!

I am happy to have one of my designs published in the Autumn, 2016, issue of “The Coloring Studio” on page 47!  This magazine always contains numerous delightful coloring pages, as well as pertinent articles for coloring enthusiasts.  In this particular issue there is helpful article on “How to Organize your Coloring Tools” which I sorely need.  Other than page 47, my second favorite coloring page is on page 91, with a whimsical floral playground by Kristen Robinson.  Let me know if you also have personal picks in this issue!
