I decided I needed a blog space to post my craft projects, knitting, zentangles, things I make for my niece Miss V, etc. The name of the blog - "a pinch, a potch, and a kiss" - is something my grandfather used to lovingly say to us grandkids and it brings back fond memories of childhood. He had a particular cadence to the phrase that I can still hear in my head and it always makes me smile.

Some September creations

The Zentangle Inspired Art yahoo group recently had a swap for a fold-up envelope that is sized to hold an artist trading card (ATC, 2.5"x3.5").

I saw these plain, white butterfly masks at the craft store and thought they'd be fun to draw on. The surface is REALLY smooth, so it was a challenge not to smear, but I really like how it turned out. I have 4  more...if you want to give it a try, I'll send you one.

 I love the edging I created on this one; although I think the tangle itself is kind of busy.

There's a new weekly challenge on the ZIA yahoo group: Index Card a Week (ICAW). This week's challenge was to create a monochromatic drawing.
