I hope you all had fun with last week's challenge. The submissions that i have seen so far are just beautiful! love them!
B-rad, Artoo and I started our week off last week with a 6.5 hour car ride to Calgary, AB.
|Watching Muppets Most Wanted for the one hundredth time.|
Because this appointment was on a tuesday, Chewie spent the days we were gone with Grandma and Grandpa so he wouldn't miss any school (after missing a whole week from being sick the week before).
On Wednesday, Artoo and I went to pick him up from school, and Artoo was so excited to see his brother he was banging on the window shouting: "Hi Brother!!! Hello!!" it was super cute, and Chewie's first grade teacher is so sweet, she told Chewie: "You've been away from your family for a long time, why don't you go now?" and let Chewie out of class a few minutes early. They were very happily reunited. Love that.
Y'know, before i had kids i never really thought about what having a children's hospital would mean to our province. It's gonna be a game changer, for sure.

Thursday night we scored some free tickets at the last minute to see a show with the kids (thanks again Tara) and they both had a really great time. It was one of those Kiddy shows with people dancing around in costumes. I thought it might be a little old for Chewie, but he had a great time. And Artoo just loves music and he was so happy to dance and clap his hands and sing songs. it was so fun.
I have so many more pictures of things we did this week, but honestly, this post is so long already. lol. not every week is so jam packed!
Weekly Challenge #187: "String Theory - Blind String"
A lot of new tanglers i talk to say the same thing: They get stumped by the string. But you don't need to be stumped.
Every once in a while i like to come back to this challenge. It's pretty fun, because it takes your brain out of the equation when drawing your string.
To begin, draw your dots and your border.
Then put your pencil somewhere on the tile (i put mine by the edge of the tile) and close your eyes and draw a string...blind.

|Tangled up and ready to go.|
Your turn! Close those eyes, draw your string, and tangle away!
Have a great week everyone!
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here) Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
i'm currently trying to decide what to do about the challenge slideshows (read here)... if you have any ideas i would love to hear from you!
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will put it in the slideshow. (send submissions to: weeklychallenge at mail.com) [not gmail, just mail]. I just ask that you put in the subject line: Challenge # ________
The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine. - although to be honest the deadline is pretty forgiving.
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
