Thank you so much for all your kind words and emails. I am so happy that this week is over. it was another long week. Things didn't get much better until around Thursday - and until then it was a long of long nights and hard days and boys needing extra cuddles, mommying, and naps.

this week fellow CZT Amy Broady's got your challenge for you!
Weekly Challenge #257: "Guest Post - Oooh Shiny!"
Happy Leap Day!!! Wow—this day happens only once every 4 years, so let’s make the most of it!
I am Amy Broady, CZT™ from Knoxville, Tenneessee, USA. You might remember me from Weekly Challenge #176: “B.Y.O.B.” I was thrilled by all the tanglers who responded to that challenge, and I am so happy to be a guest writer again, filling in for our beloved Diva.
Today being a special day, I want to challenge you to make your tangled work shine! Or gleam. Or glint. Add a special touch. I challenge you to include a METALLIC feature in your tangled art this week. It could be bold or subtle, a major feature, or a finishing touch.
There are so many ways to do this!
That being said, at this time, I don’t want offer more input than my example here. Why? Because you might want to come up with your own ways to meet the challenge. I have lots of ideas, but instead of swamping you with suggestions, I want to give you a chance to come up with your own. What materials do you have around your studio or house that could help you to meet this challenge?
If you’d like to see some suggestions and additional examples, please visit my blog, www.tanglefish.blogspot.com in the days to come. I will be adding content/examples all week! You see, addition to challenging YOU to polish up your creativity by working metal into your art, I am challenging MYSELF to blog every day this week, from today through Saturday.
I started my tile with a metallic dimensional sticker from a package I bought in the scrapbook section of Target a few years ago. I also added some final detail with Fine Tec watercolor in Sterling Silver. This tile features the tangles ‘dillo (by Lori Manoogian, CZT) and betweed.

(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. ;)
