Welcome back to the Weekly Challenge - as we move into the year 2017!
First! The winner of my Christmas Wreath tile is Zen Zone Begins!! Please email me at lauraharmz at gmail.com with your address!!
We had a very busy Christmas between family functions and seeing friends home for the holidays. It was super filled with food and wine and and laughter and presents and so much chocolate.
On Christmas Eve Day my mom and dad and my little brother and his family came over for a day of eating appetizers.
Here's Willy and I being super duper excited about these cinnamon buns. See, all my life growing up my mother made these Ooey Gooey caramel sauce covered cinnamon buns, but she was always making them as 'payment' for something, like a friend who helped her when her car broke down, or for a 'grown up party' or for a church meeting - and never made them for just us. So, every time she burned a batch (which was often as our stove didn't always cook evenly) she'd make another fancy batch and give us the burnt up ones.
|yum yum yum|
Plus we're the cutest.
With the snow, that meant we got to take the toboggan out for a spin, so we did some sledding on New Years' Eve Day, then home for hot chocolates and a fun movie before bed.

Weekly Challenge #298: "UMT - Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam"
For those of you who are new, the first Monday of every month is a Use My Tangle Challenge, where the challenge of the week is to use a tangle created by one of you! If you have a tangle you'd like to submit you can add it here and be sure that it follows the guidelines for submission.
This month's UMT is Orbs-la-Dee by Anneke van Dam, and you can see the step outs here - this is a fun tangle for me, as i do so love drawing orbs.
Here's my take on it:

It felt so good to be back in the zentangle game again - having taken my break. It was nice to put pen to paper and to get my zen on.
So have fun with this tangle! Have a great week!
