Last Week of School!! Yahoo!!

  Only two more days to go before my Christmas break!  And I can't wait.  My class is so excited you can hardly contain them.  (And yes, their teacher is too).  We have had a great week so far.  In some ways it has been hard since the Sandy Hook shooting.  That is so hard to wrap my brain around.  My classroom door is now locked at all times, we look questioningly at visitors, the innocence has gone.  It is so shattering.  I cannot fathom the impact on all those lives - the precious children who will grow up with that fear, and sadly those that will not grow up.
  On to a more pleasant note. . .  my relaxing tangles, needed this week more than ever.  I had a bit of trouble with Erin's zendala dare.  It was coming along nicely and I really was thinking I liked it, when oops!  The outside edge became a disaster.  What to do?  Cover it in black.  Now I am not sure I really like it, but there is too much to do this week to start over.  As for the challenge and Laura's new tangle "Diva Dance", I love it!  This tile nearly became a monotangle.  I got started and couldn't decide when to stop.  What a cool tangle! 
Dare #36
Challenge #100
     I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and most importantly a safe one.  Thank you for dropping by and see you soon!


  1. Your challenge tile is really interesting! Great use of the tangle.

  2. I read your words and send you the best wishes to become again free in your mind and life with the children.

  3. Both tiles are beautiful. The zendala dare looks like the bottom of a basket. I like the circles very much.
    And I agree about the diva dance tangles, one really wants to dance al the way down and hard to stop dancing.
    Here in the Netherlands we were also very shocked by what happened with thos young children, and our thougts are with the families who have lost beloved ones.

  4. I think the tempalte for the dare was beautiful, but not the easiest ever. You managed to make a great zendala of it.
    Your challange is absolutely gorgeous!

    And about Sandy Hook; have you seen what Denyse is organising?

  5. Merry Christmas and wonderful vacation to you! This is a wonderful example of the diva dance and its beauty!

  6. ooh! cathy, i love your button-ish tile - so awesome!

  7. I like your design and especially the shape. Hope you had a great Christmas.


Thank you for leaving me some sunshine! Your comments make my day!
