Monday morning, I got to dash to the computer and check out the Diva's challenge #65. I knew it would be a UMT (use my tangle). What would it be? I had been playing with lots of the choices on her site - just to get ready. I had my fingers crossed for some of them to "win". But fate was not kind. Diva's random number generator came up with JJ LaBarbera's Huggy Bear tangle. Uh oh. It isn't that I don't like that tangle, it's that it doesn't like me. Really, I tried it. It looks really great - when someone else does it. Just not me. But I had made up my mind not to miss a challenge, and I had all of spring break if I had to, so here we go!
I decided for round 2 to play with some variations of the tangle. Maybe that would help. I really got into the quiet mood with the second one. When I sat back and looked at it, I knew I had gotten it. While not "perfect", this tile really appeals to me. I just may find myself looking at Huggy Bear with a new respect. I love these challenges and the growth it makes me go through. Also, I learn SO much from looking at the other entries.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful week and thank you for visiting my site. I also appreciate all the comments you leave - just another phase of growing!!
