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.
We've had a really great week - Chewie's been having a blast at his swimming lessons. My mom's been watching Artoo for an hour a day so i can take Chewie to the pool and i've had a precious 35 minutes all to myself every day. it's been awesome.
Chewie turned five on Friday and he had a great a Lego-tastic birthday.

Weekly Challenge #126: "Stencil Fun"
A few weeks ago i was asked to write a guest post for Artistcellar using some stencils that they sent me. It was super fun and you should go and check it out! After using the stencils with paint and more, i used the stencils to do some tangling!
|These stencils are from the Arabian Nights series|
apple corer thingers as a zendala template, or maybe use a cookie cutter, or your hand. Have fun with this!
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??
