I hope everyone had a lovely long weekend....
And i just wanted to take this moment to say a very happy anniversary to the love of my life, the one and only Mr. B-rad. Eight years ago today we vowed to share our lives together, and i couldn't be happier. Love you.

|Chewie and Grandma|
Chewie starts Preschool this week, he is so excited - we went to get his welcome package and when we got home he went straight to the table and declared he had to do his 'homework'. So cute.

About halfway through the week Artoo started getting sick.
I try to keep a positive outlook on things, but i'll be honest and tell you that this hospitalization (yes, again) is starting to bring me down. its just really exhausting. sigh.
we took him in yesterday morning and we shall be here for a few days.
in the meantime - here's this week's challenge.
Weekly Challenge #85: UMT v. VIII: Copada
This week's tangle is Copada, and it was created by Margaret Bremner, CZT - she's a fellow Saskatonian and, actually, Margaret and I attended the same CZT seminar in 2010! She does amazing things with her Zentangle art.
As i'm writing this from the hospital, i don't really have the capability of showing you my tile, but you can see her tangle and it's instructions here - as well as some examples of how she uses it.
*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. (Please read the guidelines)
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??
