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
For those of you who missed it, my latest mixed media post is up on the Artist Cellar blog!
Here's what we got up to this week:
We celebrated the Rancor's birthday...
Apparently, it was his birthday so we needed to throw him a surprise birthday party. All the Lego Minifigures were there, and there was even cake and singing. What a lucky Rancor. According to Chewie, he is 53 because he is already married.

AND!! this weekend i was lucky enough to be asked to teach a Zentangle Class as a home party. I love teaching home parties, everyone is so relaxed and it's always a super fun atmosphere. This gang was no exception, they were very fun... and i may or may not have burst into song a few times... but to be fair - they were warned. I am TOTALLY kicking myself, though, because i forgot to get a photo of their beautiful Zentangle Tiles!! Dang. next time, i guess.
Weekly Challenge #147: "UMT v. XXIII - Boo*Kee"
This week's Use My Tangle challenge is brought to you by yours truly! Boo*Kee is the name of this tangle. (Say it fast, like bookie, or bukee)
For those of you who don't know, the first Monday of the month, is a UMT Challenge (Use My Tangle), where the challenge is to learn and use a tangle created by one of you! It's awesome for me, because i don't have time to try all the new tangles i see on the web on a regular basis. This challenge makes sure i'm at least learning ONE new tangle a month...
if you have a tangle you'd like to submit, please follow this link for the guidelines for submissions. Each month's tangle is chosen at random bywww.random.org
This week, try your hand and boo*kee! Have Fun!
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. (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.
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??
