Lovely, lazy days!

     It is sooo sweet to be out of school for this week of Thanksgiving.  I have been drawing like mad and hope to finish a few more Christmas presents before it is back to school for me.  I will post pictures of some of the things I am doing for presents, but not until after I give them away.  A few of them go to some special ladies that support me by reading this "nonsense" and I can't give away my secrets!
      In addition to creating presents, I have been working on ATC cards for a swap.  I almost have them all done and in the mail.  This swap has made getting mail so much fun!  I also love actually "owning" some of the brillant artists's work that I have admired for so long.
      Bright Owl had a great looking template for us to use this week.  But I really had a hard time with it.  My first go turned into an unintentional monotangle.  For the second one, I tried to use color to help out some very simple looking designs.
Peas, please
Dare #81

      Challenge number 145 at Diva's didn't turn out any easier.  This was shaping up to be a week of tough dares and challenges.  We had to do a duo-tangle using peanuckle and well.  I love peanuckle - it was love at first site when this tangle first appeared.  The tangle, well, well I think is just okay.  My tile is very basic, nothing fancy, but I found it very relaxing to do - at least the peanuckle part of it.
Challenge #146

      Every Inchie Monday's word was rope.  Another challenge!  I remember mom getting my brother some Avon soap on a rope,when he was little.  The soaps were all sorts of cartoon characters.  Aha!  An idea!

     Be on the lookout for a review from time to time here.  I have been contacted by Shoplet to be a product reviewer.  The whole thing is very exciting to me - I just hope I do a good job.  Do let me know what you think when one shows up.  Be critical, I can take it!
      Have a wonderful week and for those of you in the the U.S. -  happy Thanksgiving!!

  5. Both are lovely, but the first one is my favorite. I love this monotangle with a bit of Zinger.

  6. Your zendalas are so good! Both of them! I am generally drawn more to ones that are colored (& wow, the colored one is beautiful,) but I love both of them equally!

    & your duotangle is awesome too! Great job on Pea-nuckle... I'm still not satisfied with mine... & I think the way you shaded the inside of the empty part of the string you used!
