First of all, as always - a few house keeping items:
- If you're NEW here (and there've been a lot of new additions to the party!) I'm working on creating some tutorials to help you out. You can click on the links above or: See "Getting Started" and "Tutorials"
- To see all the past weekly challenges - click the tab above, or follow this link
- Please grab the button for the Weekly Challenge (on the right sidebar) to display on your blogs! share the fun!
- The limit of submissions to the slideshow is TWO, but please feel free to post as many as you like to your blogs. I will take the first two presented to each challenge.
- and i want to say a very extra special big heart felt thank you to everyone who donated funds. I continue to be amazed by the generosity of spirit of this wonderful community. HUGS!
all i can say is Thank God that summer weather is finally upon us. We've been spending a lot of time outside, which has been awesome.

|My heart just sings when i see this picture. Chewie just LOVES his baby brother.|
And Artoo practically worships his big brother...

is anything out there cuter than that?
The rest of the week was pretty uneventful - Artoo had some appointments for speech therapy and she said he's doing great!
Weekly Challenge #74: "String Theory v. X: Eccentric Circles"
For this challenge - draw a string of eccentric circles (or you can copy mine if that works better for you.) and get a-tanglin'.
To draw them, i started with a small tear drop shape (but you could make yours rounder if you like) and drew radiating circle-esque shapes moving out.
according to wikipedia the definition of eccentric is:
eccentric (comparative more eccentric, superlative most eccentric) not at or in the centre.
not perfectly circular.
an eccentric or elliptical orbit having a different center.

|this one ended up looking a bit like a terrifying spider... hm|
|i quite like this one.|
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.
Hey - i should note here quickly that i try my best to get the slideshows up in a timely fashion, but sometimes my life gets in the way (like when Artoo spends a week in the hospital, just for example) so, please be patient. thanks. HUG
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??
