I hope you've all been having fun with last week's tangle. Isn't it so fun?
Well the boys have both finished their first full week of school. Chewie is loving being back with his friends every day.
|He's so cool|
|What a big boy|
However, upon writing this week's challenge - Artoo is starting to get sick. He's having a rough day. He said he feels yucky and is extra cuddly. So, send your good vibes our way. Poor dude.
On the weekend, we had amazing weather. Shorts and tank tops for everyone!
On Saturday the boys and I went to the Broadway Street Fair here in Saskatoon to see my friend Kathy's art booth. I have been sharing a bit about Kathy's awesome project on Instagram (@iamthediva) and on my facebook page. You can read all about Kathy's project on her blog 5000keys.com

You can follow her progress on her blog and also on instagram (@5000keys) Tell her Laura sent you. ;)
(PS: Her keys are also available to purchase)
On Sunday Chewie went to a friend's for a playdate and since Artoo wasn't feeling so hot he was planted on the couch... i managed to tackle the new flower bed in my front yard.
I mentioned in my first post back that we've been busy fencing all summer, and it's so very true. I don't even know how many feet of fence we tore down and rebuilt this year. If B-rad had to guess, he says about 150' of fence. yikes. The last bit was this small fence in the front yard between our house and the neighbour's driveway. We finished it all at the end of August, but i have been trying to find time (and weather) to dig out my new flower bed so i can hopefully do some fall transplanting before it gets cold and snowy.
So. this is what i did:
Weekly Challenge #235: "String Theory: Stripes"
This week's challenge is to take your pencil and draw stripes across your tile or paper to create your string. Simple as that.
I like doing this kind of tile every once in a while. Sometimes, for me, i tend to do very similar strings all the time.
I started with stripes, and as i was tangling, i thought about doing criss-crossing stripes, a la Hollibough... and this was the result.
Have fun with your stripey strings this week!!
