Picjumbo: A New Collection of High-quality, Commercial-use Photos for Totally Free Photos are what web designers need in massive amounts.

Who wants to use the same images, competitor X already uses? A Zentangle Spiral Guide If you have been following my blog for a while you will know that spiral strings are my favourite. With a request from Karen Lynn I have put together a guide of tips and ideas. I have found that by dividing the spiral into sections any tangle will fit.
