Thanks everyone for playing!
It's been a pretty laid back week, which is just fine after the crazy hecticness of the past few weekends.
There's not much to report. I just checked my phone for photos of the past week and found about 28 pictures of the floor, or Artoo's feet, or the underneath of our kitchen table (all photos taken by artoo), but nothing worth sharing.
B-rad and i did have a chance to go out on a date Saturday night, it was nice to get out together. Yay for grandmas. My mom is awesome.
Weekly Challenge #145: "New Official Tangle: Quib"
Over the weekend Rick and Maria at Zentangle headquarters released a new tangle for us to play with, which is pretty fun, it's very Hollibaugh based - drawing each strand 'behind' the last.
you can see the step outs for the new tangle in the latest newsletter here as well as some beautiful samples!
This week's challenge is to try out the new tangle Quib!
Here's my tile for this 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 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??
