Hello there! I think that the best thing about having this blog is going to be the fact that I can share my various tips and tools that I have found useful along my Zentangle journey. You will also learn pretty quickly if you haven’t already that I try very hard not to take myself too seriously!
So, let’s start with the one I get asked about most of all – my Mag Eyes! Mag Eyes are a super light-weight headband style magnifier. I am pretty sure they were developed with crafters and hobbyists in mind as the marketing pictures show a cross stitcher and a model maker.
The have two versions. The one I like has the #5 and #7 lenses included and magnify 2.25 and 2.75x normal. They work right over my glasses, – which is not the case for many of the headband magnifiers that jewelers use. There are other kinds of headband mag glasses out there, and I have tried a few others, but have come back to these each time. Simple works!
I have been wearing them for two years now. Can’t tangle without them. Actually, truth be told, I have two pair, so that when this ADD girl misplaces the one pair, I can grab the other pair, get to my tangling and wait patiently for the “Gremlin of Things Gone Missing” to return them.
