Day 255 - 257 - Weekend!!

     Day 255 - I am so glad it is Friday!  I took a few minutes to work on Adele Bruno's string challenge.  I loved this string and the tangles she told us to use were just perfect.  It looked okay in black and white, but I just had to add color!
     Day 256 - Yesterday was September 11.  It will always be such a shocking reminder of how vulnerable we can be.  I remember 14 years ago.  I was waiting for a class to come to the art room and my principal came over the intercom.  He said we might want to turn on our televisions if we had a few moments.  I turned mine on and had no idea of what was going on.  As I began to understand I stood in shock and tears.  I called home (isn't it funny how when there is a crisis the first of our thoughts turn to the safety of our home?) and Ray turned the TV on in time to see the second tower fall.  For days we were glued to the television.  It shook my feeling of safety.  Then again this summer when my city - Chattanooga - experienced the loss of the six military personnel. 
     Today I sat down in my journal and did this picture.  I like how the eleven was center stage on this page. 
     Day 257 - Today is Sunday.  The air is crisp and feels like fall!  I love everything about fall.  The colors, the flavors!  My favorite season!  this piece is for Diva's challenge - to use the tangle canT -  and also for Diane Clancy's challenge to use tangles that begin with the letters SPC - canT, puf, signalz, and snugz.
     I hope you are having a wonderful day!  Blessings to you all!

  2. Difficult to think of that day. We all will remember that day and the day that President Kennedy died, if we are old enough, with such a clarity. I like how you used the 11 to commemorate that which we should never forget.

  3. love the works but adore the towers, I dont think anyone will forget where they were that day. I felt really guilty for the longest time because i was in England at the time. I can still remember that my MIL thought it was a "bad movie" being filmed in America, when I came to see what she was talking about I saw the 2nd plane hit and I fell to the floor. I had to be the one to tell her that it was real and she was suddenly back in WW2 as a child. I will never forget that day.

  4. I think that all over the world people will never forget that day. I was at work and my manager had a call from her husband about an accident with a plane. Then my phone rang and it was my son telling me the horrible news about the first tower. Also here in the Netherlands we were totally shocked. Your drawing is a tribute to all people that died that day.
