We had a busy week here, Artoo had some appointments with his medical team; and we got a date for his surgery to get his Ear Tubes - that's happening this month on the 17th. I'm not looking forward to it, mostly cuz it will be a long day. but i know it will benefit him in the end, hopefully no more ear infections. Sigh. i'm so over those. This Friday morning he woke up with a fever - which we hoped was due to teething, but Sunday afternoon we took him to the doctor... ear infection. So, hopefully these antibiotics will kick in and he'll start feeling better.
Have you guys checked out the Flickr pool for Carole Ohl's Tangle A Day Calendar?? Head on over and check it out, some amazing stuff over there...
but i digress...
Weekly Challenge #57: "UMT v. I"
Welcome to the new feature of the challenge: USE MY TANGLE!!
The first Monday of each month i will use one of YOUR tangles as the weekly challenge. I came up with this feature because so many of you have created fabulous patterns, but i never seem to get around to trying them. (If you have a tangle you'd like to submit, follow this link or go to the USE MY TANGLE tab at the top, there.)
So this week, i used a random number generator do choose the lucky winner! And this week's challenge is:
I was super stoked because you almost NEVER get #1 in the random generator. Nice!! Also, i have been eyeing up her tangle Sanibelle for quite some time. I was happy to dive in and play with it!
To find the directions for this tangle, please follow this link to her site it's such a fun and delicate pattern, and i can see this finding it's way into my repertoire!
|i love love LOVE this tangle|
So, to reiterate: This week's challenge is to learn and use the tangle Sanibelle, created by Tricia Faraone, CZT!! Congratulations Tricia, and have fun 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. ;)
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??
