- if you haven't seen the slideshow for Week #7 - you can see it here I hope to have Challenge #8's slideshow up and running as soon as i'm able. Watch for it this week.
- Please grab the button for the Weekly Challenge (on the right sidebar) to display on your blogs!
- and i want to say a very extra special big heart felt thank you to everyone who donated funds last week. I continue to be amazed by the generosity of spirit of this wonderful community. HUGS!
Well, what can i say? It's been a long and crazy/hectic week at Casa Diva. And when i put out the call for good healing intentions for my son, Artoo - i have to tell you, i was overwhelmed by the response from all over the world!
In fact, i was brought to tears a few times by the generous nature of this amazing group of tanglers.
Artoo is home and we're all much happier. He's almost back to 100%! He's got a bit of a sniffle and a cough here and there, but to see his personality reappear was really and truly like a breath of fresh air.
|Artoo - so happy to be home|
I really didn't have as much time to tangle in the hospital as one would think, as Artoo needed a lot of care - suctioning and feeding and general cuddling. We spent the better part of a week in isolation - meaning that i had to wear a gown and mask to hold and cuddle my baby.
|Blowing Kisses to everyone who sent their love and healing thoughts|
Let me tell you, when they gave us the okay to go home, i practically smothered that perfectly round head with kisses. mask free. heaven.
While i was there, the weather outside started to get warmer and cheerier, not that i ever ventured outside of my hospital room. The nurses would talk about how nice it was, and i'd have to take them at their word. Dreaming of spring, i did come up with a new Tangle, which i called "artoo", natch.
|New Tangle: Artoo|
We got out of the hospital on Thursday afternoon, and we have been nesting - re-adjusting to the routine, enjoying being reunited as a family. Chewie, our oldest, was happy to be staying the week at his Auntie Pam's, but he was thrilled to come home. I was so excited to see him my heart practically burst. sigh. families. yeah.
There hasn't been much time to do much else this week - so this week's challenge is to try out my new tangle - Artoo.
I hemmed and hawed about using this challenge to 'pimp' out my new tangle, but my hubby reassured me it was fine. (thanks, babe!)
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. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will post it here. (See the contact tab above for my email address)
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.
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. :(
