Pretty pretty pretty DP's Nic. Didn't know they made Zentangle stamps. I have been playing around with the zentangle in my art journal. It is addicting. Congrats on the highboys. You'll have to post pics of the remodeling. You inspired me. I have started removing the wallpaper from my kitchen and hope to finish and paint by the end of the year. LOL
