Family photo 2015My name is Kathy Redmond and thank you for visiting Tangled Tranquility.  Let me tell you a little bit about myself…

I have been married to a really great guy for more than half my life.  We have two daughters, all grown up and on their own and a great son-in-law.  Both daughters are amazing, independent and lovely women – we are very proud of them.  We are up to three grands – two girls and one boy.  I’m here to tell you, being a grandparent is everything you’ve ever heard and so much more! We are also a home of five dogs – two cairn terriers and three mini schnauzers. I love bird watching – so don’t be surprised to find photos or references to birds in my posts.

I can choose from an alphabet soup of letters to put after my name – it just depends on what I’m doing.  I have a bachelors’ degree in interior design, am NCIDQ certified and licensed and registered to practice interior design (though I don’t.)  I completed my MBA in 2011 while working full-time – I never said I was sane.  I am a passionate advocate for education of high school students about the consequences of impaired driving and speak regularly for a program called Sudden Impact.  I got my CZT (certified Zentangle teacher) in February of 2011.  I just wanted to learn Zentangle from its founders, Rick and Maria, and had no ambitions about teaching.  After attending the CZT workshop, I realized it was important to share and pay it forward.  So here I am.  Welcome and I hope you are inspired to join me in my quest for tranquility.
