Inspiration Avenue Challenge #1 & Divas Weekly Challenge #106 - Year of the Snake

I had to work yesterday (saturday) though only the small shift (5 hours). Beside of that shift, which i have every 2nd week my saturdays looks always the same: It’s Zendala time =) I love routine and i darely need it when it comes to be creative. As some of you already know i used to craft and draw a lot. I used to have the mainsubject Art in Highschool, i attend an Art College in Zürich. After that i begun with my Studies to become an Art Teacher for Secondary Education. While i was at University i felt in a deep crise – some doctors said i’m burned out. Well who wonders after 21 years in school with no break between! Nowadays i recommend to everyone: Before you’re attending any College – take a YearBreak – go working, travel around the globe – make anything but go to school strightwards.
I didn’t draw fort he last 3 Years! Imagine! Before that black hole i used to draw everytime i could hold a pen in my fingers and then: 3 Years Nothing! No Collages, o drawings, no knittings – Nothing! 

Putting all in a Nutshell: I’m having a Comeback. And for being inspired and learn again to be inspired by myself i need some help in the beginning.

I’ve waited the hole Day for the new Zendala Dare #43 – but nothing appears. I know that Erin has a Comeback to and is busy in her Nursing School... so i put on Weekly Challenge into Mister Google and found the Site Inspiration Avenue Team which is posting every Monday a new Challenge – the Media you’re using is up to you.
The this Week theme: Year of Snake. I’m a pig – being a snake or a dragon sounds much nicer, doesn’t it? Well since the shade of a snake is just perfect for zentangling i decided to make a happy new year, snkae tangle tile.  Comes out very nice i think.

Right know i’m on the way to my parents (fixing their Internet Connection) and while i’m on train i write this blogpost and checked the emails – erin is back J so immediately after i’m coming home the new template will be print out and filled with tangles.
