Ten lords a leaping; six geese a laying…
One Sammy tangling…
If you’re tired of tangles, I understand! That seems to be where my Santa spirit resides these days, and I enjoy the calming effect more than trying to harness words that elude my grasp. Plenty of time to crack the writing whip in the new year!

That’s beautiful Sammy, I love your Tangles 😉
Thank you, Lainey. I hope you are finding some moments of relaxation among hubbub of the season!
lol, thanks, same to you! It is a bit busy but I have friday set aside for some relaxing (so long as I don’t answer the phone, lol!) 😉
Instead of ‘let it snow’ you can hum ‘let it ring’ while not answering the phone!
I love these, not tired of them at all. We are all busy, but sharing little bits of of experience keeps the community alive. Thanks for sharing this, it’s beautiful.
Thank you, Dan, for your constant encouragement. You expressed it well – a desire to stay in touch despite off-line activities and emotional ups and downs that come with this season and year end. Tangling is a nice way for me to stay centered.
I’ll be slowing down at “f-i-v-e….g-o-l-d-e-n…r-i-n-g-s….but having that Holiday Tangle of yours, Sammy, at any speed!!!! Holiday Wishes!
LOL You nut! I should tangle a tempting fig or two for you 😊
PS – I like your new Gravatar!!
You are so good at this I remember when you first started too! I’ve not done much at all. This is wonderful x
Thank you, Justine 😊. It’s hard to evaluate my own advancement, and the shading is the hardest part; mine always looks dirty rather than ‘movement-enhancing’. I appreciate your encouragement and will keep plugging away to appease my inner critic!
I wouldn’t even know how to shade, you are way ahead of me. Ithink they look wonderful indeedy, not dirty looking at all, but i guess artists are their own harshest critics x
Great job, Sammy! You hang in there and keep up the good work!!
Thank you so much 💥💥
I like Dan’s sentiment. And I love your tangle. Tangle away, Sammy. If it works, don’t fix it.
Thanks, Maggie. Dan did indeed express my desire for connection amidst the holiday abnormalities, and I am enjoying what others have been writing while being patient with my own impasse.
Giving your creative spirit free rein sounds like exactly what you need. Rejoice in it while you can 🙂
Thanks, Joanne. I should know by now that this season brings mixed memories and emotions. Tangling helps to soothe and settle, and I SO appreciate my connections with all of you.
I like Dan’s comment too! Your Spirit Shines Through the Tangles! Look forward to more of your writing in the new year!
Thank you, Christine! Yes, Dan certainly expressed why we all hang out here. Such a supportive clan !
I enjoy your tangles, Sammy — and the last ones (in this post and the bookmarks you made) have been seasonally apt. 🙂
These have been fun! Thanks, Sandi. I see so many beautiful patterns I want to try, and they all take practice. Sort of like trying to learn to play songs or dance new choreography.
Don’t know if I’d ever try tangle. I’d tie myself in knots. Merry Christmas, Sammy.
😊 and you would write the BEST narrative about it if you did!! Merry Christmas to you Almost Iowans, too.
I love your tangles… they are so peaceful and calming. I can see how you’d get lost in your thoughts as you are creating them.
Thank you so much! It’s been way too many years since I practiced any arts or handcrafts, and this is giving me unexpected pleasure. As you say, the practice is calming -something sorely needed in these turbulent times.
That’s such a pretty one, Sammy! You’re getting really good at this 🙂
Hugs and Christmas love coming your way xx
Awww thank you, Jo 😊
That’s beautiful! Wow. I look at the detail here and all I can think is: this takes a certain kind of talent. Thanks for sharing, Sammy.
Thank you, Silvia 😊 Merry Cristmas to you and your family!
