My love for Zentangles continues. Completed my second one late last night and already onto the third!

The news was in months back that Sandra Oh was not going to return to Grey's for season 11. Once the news broke, there were speculations abound about how her character was going to be written off.

No technology, special materials, or educational background are necessary to become a Zentangle artist.Here are a few characteristics of a Zentangle:
The tile should not have an "up" or a "down" - it is without orientation.It should not be representative of any certain recognizable object; rather, it should be abstract.The drawing sh…

What is it that helps children express themselves? Apart from language and emotions, studies have proven that kids also need creativity to express themselves. Arts, crafts, pretend play, building models, help them to work out their emotions, experiences and help them find their own solutions. Besides they also practice their fine motor skills.
