challenges, resting, drawing, school work, computer games, and sooooo much more! Oh I love the relaxed pace of summer. This past week I have worked on some challenges and also done a lot on cutting out and planning things for my school bulletin boards. I have decided on a garden theme for the decorations in the room. I will post pictures when I have them put up in the room - end of July.
The Every Inchie challenge word was "radio". I started to draw a radio then decided on the IHeart radio symbol. Not really unique, but anyway here goes.
The Diane Clancy challenge uses the letters DCA for tangles. I used dessus-dessous, cirque, angelfish, and auraleaf.
Made by Joey had a really neat circle string this time - three little circles inside of a larger one. Putting the tangle socc inside the small circles was interesting. I enjoyed using that tangle - I had forgotten how much I liked it when it first came out. Sometimes it is fun to return to "old friends", even if for just a bit.
Diva's challenge was to do something for the Beads of Courage. You can read about what this organization does for youngsters facing a lot of medical procedures on her site (see side bar). I decided to use the beads to honor the courage of those who have had to deal with the horror of Orlando. Some with losses. Some with coping with the clean up and justice process. I chose one bead for each letter in Orlando. Then found a tangle that began with that letter. I also added a heart to show my heart is with those folks. My tangles are operation, rainbow bridge, log cabin, akirfa, nzeppel, dash off, and o2.
This last piece was just for fun. No challenge, just time to play around. Sometimes I don't do enough of that. I get caught up in challenges (which I love) and forget to spend time to do my own creating. For no reason except to express myself.
I think when I finish here I am going to work on some math plans for the beginning of the year. I actually love to do that. Now, I don't love doing it when I am pushed for time. But over the summer it is seriously one of my favorite things to do. Strange, huh?
