I hope all my Canadian Friends had a happy May Long weekend!
It seems that as soon as things warm up around here, we are busy with things until the snow falls again in the winter.
May is practically over - and the boys will be done school in a little of a month - and then it's off to California for us! But before that happens there are so many things that have to happen. Both boys school schedules are busy with year end activities and field trips. Chewie has his dance recital coming up... and then there's the annual fundraising 5K Colour Run that my friends and i put on to raise funds for Beads of Courage - oh yeah, next weekend i'm running the SaskMarathon 10K (and i've barely trained, it's gonna be a sad run for me)
It feels like we've hit the ground running with no end in sight!

Artoo has super excited this week because he was invited to his friend from school, Quniton's, birthday party! AND they were going Glow Bowling!! Every morning for the last week and a half he would count down the days until Quinton's party and when the day finally came it was everything he hoped for and more. :) He really had a blast at the party!!

Weekly Challenge #269: "New Official Tangle: Ellish"
i was very excited when the latest issue of the Zentangle newsletter was sent out this week (sign up here) with the step outs for the new Tangle from HQ called Ellish!
I've been eyeing this tangle, lovingly, from afar. CZTs often get a heads up on the new tangles so i've known about this for a little while - but i've yet had the chance to sit down and try it out.
There's plenty of Ellish eye candy on the Mosaic App, if you have that, as well. Search #ellish to find more examples of this tangle.

Have fun trying this one out, if you haven't already!!
And if you're on the App, - i'm @iamthediva - come on by and follow me, and i'm going to be using hashtags on the app for each of my weekly challenges. So if you're game use the hashtag #DC269 (Diva Challenge #269) for your tile this week!
[i had been using a much longer hashtag for past challenges - iatdwc for iamthediva weekly challenge - but i'm shortening it for ease and for less memorizing random letters ;)]
Have a great week!!
