Days 221 - 227, An Art "journal"

     Lots of "stuff" to cut out today to finish up the things I want in my room.  I will get them put together and up for tomorrow's Create Each Day challenge.  Hard to believe so far I haven't missed one day.  Yet.  I did take few minutes for some tangling (that should not surprise anyone).  I worked a bit ahead on Diane Clancy's alphabet challenge.  For the NBV challenge I used a string (#169) off of  I used nzeppel, balloya, and ving.  Simple but I like it.  So here is day 221.

     Monday and day 222 and in-service.  I was fairly tired this afternoon, but worked for a while on the New to Me challenge.  I used arnia and amphora for the new tangles that begin with the letter A.  Then I used stitch and sandswirl for tangles by the artist Karry Heun.  Fun!

     Ta-Da!!  I put the finishing touches on my classroom door!  Aren't my kids precious?  Tonight at Open House the parents just loved it.  Great for day 223.  Staying late the night before school starts is rough though.  I am going to be tired tomorrow.

     Day 224 and I got to meet my kiddos!  Oh they are so cute (my door doesn't begin to do them justice!).  I have 15 in my room.  They are tiny!  I teach second grade.  When I got home I did a quick tile while Ray cooked supper.  This is for Adele Bruno's string challenge.  I used the tangles x-ess and undo.  Relaxing and off my feet!

     One challenge I simply cannot miss is Every Inchie Monday.  Granted I am a little late this week, but better late than never.  Here is day 225.  The word was "wall".  Yep, just "another brick in the wall" (Pink Floyd).

      Is it finally Friday!?  Yahoo!  I am so glad to call it a week.  However, I have had an awesome week.  I love this class.  They are so cute and so sweet.  I appreciate their personalities after a rather difficult year last year.  Day 226 and not a lot of creative energy.  Not at all.  I just worked in my coloring book.  That was about all the "juices" could muster.  It was relaxing and a lot of fun to boot! The coloring sheet is by artist Eden M. Hunt.

      One more day in in this blog "journal" and I had better try to link everything up.  A weekly post may be a bit difficult.  I finished up a tile for the Made by Joey challenge for day 227.  It had to use the tangle jemz.  Lots of glitz in this one.

      Now I HAVE to get this posted or I will never finish linking to every site I need to.  Take care and thanks for dropping by.  I probably will have another long post next week.  School work presses . . .


  1. Just love all your tangles and inchie.

  2. Just love all your tangles and inchie.

  3. And again so much done! I do like your tile for the alphabet challenge but my favorite is the green (day 226) one!

  4. Gosh, you have managed to be creative everyday! The tile you did for the string thing is wonderful how you got the middle sections to float above the rest.

  5. So many lovely work to see here! Especially I like the first and the sixth one!

  6. Nice work! Thanks for being part of the TNTM challenge this week!

  7. Nice pieces again this week, Cathy. Yes, great minds LOL! Your wall is really well done. It's always exciting to start a new year. I was always nervous the day before, but would be fine once I met the children. Sounds like you will have a lovely year. Enjoy!

  8. Beautiful tangles. Love your inchie. I had to think at this song the whole week. But I thought it's to difficult to put it on an inchie. Well done.

  9. I'm amazed that you get so many challenges done AND teach! I look forward to seeing your school posts as well as your tangle challenges!
