Weekly Challenge #371

Good Tuesday Morning everyone!
This weekend Canadians celebrated Thanskgiving - and i am so thankful for my little family.

Artoo And Luna play in the leaves

 We had some nice weather so we tackled our backyard as a family - which led to some complaining about having to "work so hard" but in the end Chewie and Artoo and I ended up singing Weird Al Polkas which made the leaf clean up go a little bit faster.

Chewie - hard at work.
 We had dinner with my side of the family on Saturday, where we laughed and ate too much....

and then we went to the nearby park and took some family pictures and the kids ran around and climbed trees...

So thankful for this sexy beast
 and one of my favourite Thanksgiving traditions is the making of the scrapbook page - each year since 2007 we have each made a page of what we are thankful for and it goes in the family scrapbook.  It's so fun to look back at some of the pages over the years, like my older brother being thankful for Sex Drugs and Rock and Roll 3 years in a row.

Grandma and Auntie Shea and the kiddos working on their pages
Sunday was a day of decluttering and organizing the kids' rooms, which never happened over the summer cuz we were super busy

and then Monday, the temperature dropped to -3C (26F) and we got a little bit of snow, and we drove out to B-rad's parents for our Thanksgiving with the Harms Family.

Weekly Challenge #371 "Onion Drops"
This week's Challenge is to use the tangle Onion Drops.  It's one of the tangles for Inktober Tangles (list of prompts by Stephanie Jennifer)  I admit that this is a bit of a cheat for me since i just did this tangle for my Inktober videos, but i had never done this tangle before and i kind of love it - so i thought i'd share it with you guys too!!  (Step outs for Onion Drops)

i've been attempting to do videos of each day through Inktober, so be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel by clicking on the little "BELL" to make sure you're notified when i post new content.  :)

So this week try out Onion Drops in your tile! It doesn't have to be a monotangle.

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. So if you're game - use the hashtag #DC371 (Diva Challenge #371) for your tile this week! You can also search in the app for people's contributions to the challenge by clicking on the hashtag from inside the app, or using the search function. 
If you have a blog or host your images on line (like on Flickr or Picassa or Pinterest), 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 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. Ahhh, a nice relaxing Zentangle. I like Onion Drops but haven't used it in awhile so it was nice to go back to it. Thanks for the Challenge. Looks like you had a very nice Thanksgiving weekend. So nice to see everyone healthy and well. Take care!

  2. Happy Thanksgiving-that-was. You made this one easy since we'd just done it for Inktober!

  3. Thanks for sharing about onion drops. It's a new-to-me pattern and I love it.

  4. Onion drops, never use this tangle. I think I fall in love with this pattern ^_^

  5. I originally came for the zentangle. I stay to see your family grow. Thanks for your blog.

  6. Glad you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I like the inks you've been using. I didn't know there were such loving inks. I bet they are really pretty in person.

  7. This is my first challenge, I ever dared to post. But since 2014 I learned by watching tis blog and Iam very thankful for your constant presence.
