Weekly Challenge #55 "String Theory v. VIII: Moebius Trip"
Thanks, everyone, for your submissions to last week's Purple Haze challenge. I spoke a bit about my son Artoo's disorder, Moebius Syndrome; a congenital nerve disorder affecting cranial VI and VII nerves controlling the lateral movement of his face. Moebius is a spectrum disorder - so some cases are more severe than others. We've been extremely lucky that Artoo's symptoms haven't been too difficult to adjust to. (follow the link above to read about our story)
In last week's challenge i told you that Moebius Syndrome Awareness day is in January, it's actually tomorrow on January 24th! In honour of my little dude, my sister-in-law and i dyed my hair purple!
|It's dark violet with streaks of bright purple!! so fun!|
Anyway, on to the actual challenge. To raise awareness for this disorder, use the Moebius Syndrome Foundation's logo as your string, or create a moebius strip out of paper and tangle that... or some other awesome creative thing that i haven't thought of.
Here's two versions of the logo for you to work with. You can print them or trace them or draw your own.
Now here are my two version of the above tiles... all tangled up!
ALSO - please wear Purple on January 24th for Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day!! Do it for Artoo, cuz he's so cute - and is the youngest CZT around!! (lol, i was pregnant with Artoo when i was certified!)
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. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine. please? for me??
