This week B-rad and i were actually able to get out of our house, together, with no kids. We haven't been on a 'date' since the night before Artoo was born in October of 2010. We have been training my mom to look after Artoo, and do his special feeds and medications and to use our suction machine for this reason - In May B-rad and i are going to drive to Edmonton to see Roger Waters perform The Wall!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
Saturday night, my mom actually stayed over night to do a 'dry' run, while B-rad and i got some nachos. She got up with Artoo all night, and we slept in the guest room. It was awesome. For us, not so much for mom.
Our poor little Artoo just hasn't had very much luck lately. He has another round of tonsillitis, and just today he started sneezing and is now into another cold. yeah.
Weekly Challenge #65: "UMT v.III"
Welcome to the Third THRILLING installment of UMT (Use My Tangle), where the challenge is to use a tangle created by YOU! If you don't know about UMT - here's the scoop: The first Monday of each month will feature a home-made tangle - chosen at random from the linky list here. Anyone who has created their own tangle is eligible for submission, providing it follows the guidelines listed here.
The challenge, then, is to learn the new tangle and to use it in your tile or Zentangled inspired piece.
Using the random number generator, this week's tangle comes to us from JJ LaBarbera, called HUGGY BEAR, which is a cute play on the official Tangle Huggins. You can find instructions for her tangle here.
I can see lots of fun ways to use this tangle in the future, i love the idea of circles nicely stacked - but i love how my lines went a little wonky. it added to the 'charm' of the tangle. :D
Thank you JJ, this is a great tangle to play with!
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??
