Yup. September time is here. I switched over my wall calendar and everything.
Sorry to everyone who came by yesterday, apparently my "HAPPY LABOUR DAY, SEE YOU TUESDAY" post did not publish, but hopefully y'all figured it out.
This last week B-rad put the final finishing touches on the bed he designed and built.
|finished, kind of|
Speaking of being rad.... here's B-rad and I on the roof!
This morning marked Chewie's first day of the First Grade! every milestone these boys go through makes it harder to believe that they were every so small.
|i forgot to post his kindergarten graduation photo in June, he's so cute!|
Artoo is pretty sad that his brother will be gone all day, but he has a pretty full schedule of therapies coming up, so that will be nice to have one less kid to cart around.
If you are on Instagram you can follow me at @iamthediva and look for the hashtag #bijouadayproject to see more of them.
Weekly Challenge #183: "UMT - X-Did" by Annette Carlo
If you are a regular here, you'll know that (generally speaking) the first Monday of every month is a Use My Tangle challenge where the challenge is to use a tangle created by one of you! (If you have a tangle you'd like to submit you can see the submission guidelines here)
This week's tangle is called "X-did" by Annette Carlo, and you can find the step outs HERE
I like the look of this tangle, and i think there's a real potential for some sweet tangleations. I love a geometric pattern.
my first go was on a bijou tile:
"X-did" is in the left and right of the frame, it took on a whole different look when i tangled in the negative spaces around the x shapes.
I made a HUGE error on the top and bottom of the frame, hence them being filled in with black. i really and truly wanted to pitch this one and start over again - BUT I CAN'T!! My on-going challenge to myself to ALWAYS post my submissions would not allow me to. SO, i kept going, and thought: "maybe i can save this, maybe not"
Well, it didn't turn out as horrible as i thought it would. I'm glad i didn't throw it out, but - let's be honest - this one won't be framed any time soon. LOL
so this week - try out "X-did" and see how you do!
Have a great week!
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 put it in the slideshow. (send submissions to: weeklychallenge at mail.com) [not gmail, just mail]. 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. - although to be honest the deadline is pretty forgiving.
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??
