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.
And a Happy Memorial Day to my friends to the South in the States.
This week Chewie had a big day when he graduated from Preschool. We went to the Forestry Farm to have his big celebration. My dad came along as his special guest and had a great time playing with Artoo on the playground.
|So Proud of our little guy.|
We've been spending more time outside and the boys have been having a great time in the sandbox.

Weekly Challenge #120: "Tangleation Nation; Bales"
One of the wonderful parts of Zentangle is how it is always growing and changing and becoming something beautiful and new. Part of the way this happens is through tangleations or variations of tangles.
In this week's challenge we are going to explore the tangle Bales (follow the link for the step outs) - one of the staples of Zentangle.
There is so much possibility in this tangle, so much room for variation.
Play with this tangle, really open it up and take it for a drive... put the top down and let your hair loose! Where can it go? What can it do. What are you and Bales capable of together?
|Bales of fun|
*Monotangle is a term referring to a tile or ZIA that uses only one tangle - either in it's true form or tangleated form
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??
