I decided this week I would have to pick and choose my challenges. I just didn't have enough time for them all. That bugs the obsessive part of me, but with school screaming for more time, that is just going to have to happen. I combined two challenges for day 272 - That's New to Me focusing on the letter I and Diane Clancey's challenge #26 with the letters FIN. My tangles are illawarrior, facets, and nvelope.
Many years ago there was a program on night TV called "Hot L Baltimore". Actually I never saw the program, but the name always fascinated me. So for day 273 and Every Inchie Monday, I used that for inspiration. The word was "hotel" and the "e" on my sign is supposed to be burned out.
I had to quickly make two cards for birthdays this evening, day 274. So I decided to put some of my tiles to work. They seem to stack up so I thought this might be a nice way to share some of them. These two cards are for two people at school.
Did you see the lunar eclipse last weekend? I was so ready to watch it and take pictures. Our sky was so cloudy nothing could be seen. I had been working on this piece of art in journal for awhile and could not decide what to put in that big circle I had put in the middle. I decided on a tribute to the red moon (that I never saw). The coloring is not so great, but overall I like day 275's piece. Wonder if I will be here to see it the next time? I certainly hope so.
Day 276 and I worked on Adele Bruno's challenge #112. We had to use the tangles minline, puffle and kisses. I didn't have a lot of time this evening, but I did get it done.
Day 277 and back to the plastic. I cut out two more pieces and tangled them. Then I used my new pack of sharpies to color. They are a bit dark, don't you think? If any one out there has any experience with this stuff - share some tips. I want to try making Christmas ornaments and necklace charms for gifts. So I have to conquer the mechanics of this craft!
It has been a wonderful week for me. I have felt so blessed this week I can hardly stop smiling. I have had some financial concerns for a bit over a year - rather massive burdens. God took care of a few of those this week. I still have a long way to go, but this week for the first in a very long time, I felt like we were moving forward. I hope you have had an equally blessed week!
