I know that some of you have told me that the paypal button does not work, and some of you have had no trouble, i'm not sure why it's inconsistent, i've redone the code a few times... If all else fails you can donate to my paypal address which is madam_diva ( a t ) yahoo ( d o t ) com - also to those people who donated this week... THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Thank you, everyone, for being patient this week... feels like one of those days where nothing is going right.... oh, technology..
I feel like now that i'm a stay at home mom, there's not much to report on - every day seems very much like the one before... full of cranky boys, and happy boys, and silly boys, and singing boys, and sleeping boys, and crying boys... and any variation of the above at any given moment.

On the weekend B-rad and i were able to enjoy a night out! my mom came over and watched Artoo so we could go to a family wedding out of town (in a small town nearby). It was nice to have fun and dance with all my little nieces and nephews, and to relax and have a drink...or two. ;)
Chewie got to stay overnight with his cousins, and he couldn't have been happier!

Weekly Challenge #113: String Theory v. XXIV "Hip to be Square"
This week's challenge is a string challenge - an easy string for everyone to do. i started with my dots, and border, creating a square. Inside that, i drew a few more squares and went from there.
|...a box in a box in a box in a box in...|
So, begin with a square and keep adding squares, one inside the other! Also, i just realized that this challenge goes beautifully along side the latest post from Rick and Maria on the Zentangle blog - Synchronicity!! Go and check it out for some lovely inspiration!
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. (please email to weeklychallenge(at)mail(dot)com). I just ask that you put in the subject line: Challenge # ________
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??
