Weekly Challenge #343

Hey everyone,
hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Happy Thanksgiving to my friends to the South.

We had very awesome weather this week, and the boys and i took advantage of it!

The Sky is on Fire!
 We don't often have the right type of snow for snowmen here in Saskatchewan.  It's generally too cold and dry and the snow doesn't stick to itself.  So when we had a few days of above freezing temps we got our snow man on.

what a beautiful family

 Chewie and B-rad went to a hockey game with some friends and had a great time being silly

good times 
Don't worry little dude, the tree looks great, the elf will love it. 
Artoo has been asking us each day for the past week when we can put up the Christmas Tree.  He has been very concerned that we get the tree up in time for our Elf Elfybulla to come visit. 

Weekly Challenge #343: "New Official Tangle Dewd"
A little while ago the good peeps at Zentangle HQ released their Project Pack videos, which included a video of Maria demonstrating the new tangle Dewd.  

It is a super fun tangle, it took me a bit to get the hang of.  
here's my tile.

(There's no video this week, because my arm and wrist have been so sore lately.  i tried to make a video but i had to keep stopping to take breaks.)  


have a great week everyone!
And if you're on the Zentangle Mosaic App or Instagram - 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.

If you love the challenge as much as i do, please consider leaving a tip (tip jar in the side bar).  I write this blog for free and have no plans to make it a paid for service in the future.  Buy me a cup of coffee, or a new Micron pen!! Click the tip jar on the side for a monthly tip, but if you just wanna throw a few bucks my way THIS LINK will give you a one time option.    A very big thank you to those who have kept me in hot cups of joe. ;)


  1. Your tile is really gorgeous! And, I can't wait for the antics of Elfybulla this year. I guess we never totally grown up : )

  2. Lovely pics of you, your husband, the children and the wonderful dog. I hope you are feeling better already. I have a bit the same problem and that is why I can't draw as much as I wanted. Please take good care of yourself and take enough breaks and everything will be fine!

  3. Great challenge! I need to work on Dewd, because I really love it;-) I love your fun family pics. Take good care of that hand.

  4. While a lot of tangkers love Dewd, I'm not one of them. A nice and easy to draw tangle, but I find it hard to combine it with other tangles. Your tile is beautiful!

  5. So sorry for your shoulder and hand pain! I suffer from this, too, especially when I forget to take breaks and don't stretch every day. Hope you're feeling better soon! The picture of Luna is magical!


tangle me some zen, baby!!
