Happy Valentine's Day!!

     No excuses.  I could've blogged several times this week.  I should have - so that I didn't have so many things to post.  But face it, I have been lazy.  I went to school this past Monday, then the weather started doing its crazy thing and I got off two days.  Then the rest of the week was winter break.  So I have had several days in a row to perfect my laziness.  I did spend time drawing and doing things on my Cricut, but I just never posted.  So here goes!
     I did two Diane Clancy challenges.  I love those.  I think they are one of my favorites.  We are given 3 letters of the alphabet and have to use tangles that start with those letters.  I used some of the strings from a facebook challenge to put my work on. 
Challenge #44 - MBZ - miander, box it up, and zooloo
Challenge #45 - WIR - whirly, ilana, radio waves
      Another super challenge I participate in is over at Made by Joey.  This week we had to do a yinyang symbol using any tangles we wanted to.  I made a "bobble" in one spot and started to toss it.  But some shading sort of helps hide my brain cramp on this one.  Sort of.
     The That's New to Me challenge #50 had us using a new tangle with the letter K.  I chose kloorz.  I also used ta-da by the feature artist. 
     Diva's challenge was to do a Valentangle!  I used one of the Facebook strings again and put one of those gems inside it.  I love they way they look, even though mine aren't quite as realistic as I would like. 
     And last but not least - well it is least in size - is the piece I did for Every Inchie Monday.  The word was slippers.  They are the first thing I do when I come through the door each day.  Shed those shoes!  My slippers are somewhat old and very beat up, but oh so comfortable.  I can "hear" my feet cheer when I get them on.  Seriously.  I can.
    I hope you are spending Valentine's day with someone you love or at least doing something you love.  I am doing school work when I finish here.  No, I am not complaining.  I have had all those "lazy" days, remember?  And I have one more day of winter break tomorrow.  Besides, I honestly don't mind school work most days.  While this year has been the most difficult I can remember, it has nothing to do with my class, the work, or my colleagues.  I do believe the stress has worked a number on my health.  I am still getting over the bronchitis.  It does linger, doesn't it?
   Have a wonderfully blessed day!  Thanks for dropping by!


  1. Alot of beautiful tiles! love the inchie

  2. oh comfy slippers - aren't they just the best - great inchie

  3. Lots of great tiles here. Love the softness of your Valentangle.

  4. I'm glad you got some down time. We all need that to recharge our batteries now and then. You also made some really nice tiles. I think your gem is soft and lovely, and I am exactly the same with slippers. Now that I am retired, they go on in the morning and just stay on all day. That's the life, huh? LOL!

  5. You have been busy, what wonderful tiles for all the challenges. I just caught you because I've just discovered it is a public holiday in Canada today, so no Diva Challenge until tomorrow, but it has given me the chance to catch up with the last few entries from last week.


Thank you for leaving me some sunshine! Your comments make my day!
