Hi and welcome back to the Chrissie Murphy Designs Blog. On Monday night we had Tangle Index Time Session 2. It was our first session using the Instagram Live platform and I think it went really well. As promised, here’s the wrap up post that contains all the links of the patterns we focused on. Let’s get into it.
What is Tangle Index Time?
On social media I’ve shared pics and posts about working on my Tangle Index quite regularly. When I do, I always receive lots of comments and messages about it. The main theme of the messages is “I would love to own a tangle index but I struggle to find the time”.
This (in a nutshell) is what the Tangle Index Time Live Events are all about. If you’ve been wanting to work on a Tangle Index and have been struggling to find the time to do so, then these events are for you!
Happening each week (but alternating between social media platforms), these one hour live events are a place where we can meet and work on our Tangle Indexes together. I’ll be continuing to add to mine, and thought we could all work together to build our own.
Do I need special supplies?
All you will need is your regular tangling supplies and whatever you would like to use for your Tangle Index. I use an A4 three-ring binder with 2in x 2in square coin collector sheets because these fit Zentangle Bijou tiles perfectly.
But you can use whatever you like. A notebook, index cards and a box, a display folder…. They will all work.
I have found with Tangle Indexes, the most important thing you need is time to dedicate to working on it. That’s what these hours are about.
Is there a Tangle Index Time Live Event Schedule?
Yes, there surely is.
Above is the Live Event Schedule for July. These are FREE live events.
Note that the time zone is Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST).
Is there a Facebook Group for Tangle Index Time?
Yes, there most certainly is. The Home for Expressive’s Facebook Group will keep you up to date with;
- The Tangle Index Time live event schedule
- Tangle Index Time Wrap Up posts
- Progress pics from other Expressive’s who are participating in Tangle

The Timezone doesn’t work for me. Is there a recording I can watch later?
Yes…. and no.
Instagram offers a recording of the Live Session and up until last night a recording was available. On Tuesday night I received a notification from Instagram saying they had blocked my video due to content it contained. I’m really at a loss as to why…. but it’s been removed and is no longer available for viewing.
So I’m not sure how I’ll approach this going forward….
Facebook Rooms doesn’t have recording capability either. But you can catch up on anything you’ve missed through the wrap up blog posts like this one.
What we focused on for Tangle Index Time Session 2?
At one stage there were 76 of us gathered live on Instagram. Absolutely amazing! Not everyone was able to stay for the entire session, but I just love that you stopped by.
I had a wonderful time tangling with everyone, it was such a joy! I loved hearing about what time it was where you were. It’s just amazing that we were all able to gather like we did.
We worked on 7 tiles for our indexes again.
