Dare #57 and some other fun

      While this post finds me a bit better, it's not the "ready to tackle the world" I was hoping for by Sunday afternoon.  During the day I am pretty good, though I get tired really fast.  It's the night that is awful.  The moment I lay down, I cough.  One day I am going to get a lounge chair so I can sleep sort of elevated.

Dare #57

      If you want to make your own zendalas, head over to Bright Owl's site and enter a contest for some zendala templates by Genevieve Crabbe.  I won them from - somewhere- back over the summer and they are awesome.  This week's template was created with them by Genevieve herself.
      After this one, I decided to do another monotangle challenge from Mindful-Creations (see side bar).  I rarely take the time to do two, but I can draw without talking.  I took Bright Owl's template and filled it with the tangle Hi-Cs.  Was a bit of a challenge but fun!  I never saw this tangle as so versatile until we used it this week in the monotangle.

Every Inchie Monday 

     This week's word was "track".  I used a rubber stamp I have of some tire tracks.  Not really spectacular, but I guess it works.  I hopefully will do better next week.  I have got to get a one inch punch.  I have every other size known, but not one inch.
   Guess I better try to decide what I am going to do tomorrow.  My books are at school and I am here.  Could make for an interesting day.  Just hope I have the energy to get through it.  Thanks for dropping by and visiting.  I love hearing your comments - thanks.

  1. I love your first zendala! It has a very modern, industrial look, almost like a gear. Very cool.

  2. Both pieces are really good but the first one is with white spaces is balanced so well.

  5. They are both lovely. I think I like the first one the best tho, because of the balance of space and tangle.

  6. Your zendala (the first) is absolutely stunning. I love it.

    The second one is also great, quite challenging to use this tangle in this way.

  8. Both are lovely - I too started with Hi C's but it was too fiddly for me :)

  9. I love your tyre tracks!

    Good luck trying to find a one inch punch. I've tried everywhere and they are all one inch diagonally, not along the side. I rule out squares on card and cut my own, but they're never really precision shapes!
