Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


How to Tangle on your iPad!

I've been hooked on Zentangle for years now, and when I got my iPad I was sure I would love tangling on it. But it just never quite worked for me. I tried multiple drawing apps. I bought a stylus. And I kept going back to my trusty Microns and my Iona sketchbook.

A couple of days ago I had a conversation on Instagram with @artzyfartzy, who obviously has the whole tangling-on-an-iPad thing sussed. She suggested ArtRage and mentioned that she zooms in a lot to draw. I already had ArtRage (in fact, when I opened the app, there sat an unfinished tangle attempt, mocking me) and I was sure I had known it zoomed, but I gave it another shot, and for whatever reason, it all came together for me this time!

I'm so excited about my new tangling tool that I put together this How To, just for fun :-)
