Weekly Challenge #342

Happy Monday all

thank you for all the well wishes last week regarding my hand/wrist/arm/shoulder pain.  It has been a pretty low-key week for me, and i wore my brace quite a bit this week to keep my hand rested.  It's been a very sad week though, because even just holding a pen to sign my name was very painful.  It still hurts quite a bit and my hand is most definitely weak.

There aren't even any photos on my phone!!

Can you believe it? I can, like i said - i haven't done much this week.  :(

I did go see the new Murder on the Orient Express which i thought was okay.  I enjoyed the cinematography, and the way they filmed on the train.  I didn't know the story going in, so i found the mystery part intriguing.

I also went to a flea market this weekend with my brother's girlfriend - which was a little like walking through a hall full of garage sales.  The quality of items ranged from junk to antiques, and i ended up just purchasing a box of old books.  I told the woman that she wouldn't like what i was going to do with them  (Because i rip the pages out and use them for collage sheets)

LOL she gave me a pained look and then said: "Well, you can do what you want with them, i guess.  They're yours now"

Weekly Challenge #342: "Duotangle: Paradox vs Bunzo"
This week's challenge is a Duotangle!! these challenges are truly my faves.  I'm always so impressed with the new and exciting ways you make the tangles interact with each other!!

If you're new here, a Duotangle is the term i coined here on this blog to refer to a tile or piece using ONLY TWO SPECIFIC TANGLES.

This particular duotangle challenge is to use the two tangles Paradox and Bunzo in your tile. 

This is my contribution

and here's the YouTube video!
