Weekly Challenge #198

Greetings everyone! First, let me thank you for all, for the lovely comments last week. It was another crazy time for me, so it really made my day when I could take a second and check in. Thank you!!!

The diva this week in honor of the 4th year of her challenge went “old school” to the start of the challenges and asked us to “Keep is Simple Silly”, although I remember another word being substituted for the last one….

My first thought was to go back to my beginning, and that first tile that I did when attending training. Here is a Bijou using those first tangles that I officially learned, Crescent Moon, Hollibaugh, Knightsbridge and Printemps, all on a Z string.

Another simple tile, and Wish for you this Season.

May Love

 Come to You!

Happy Christmas and a Merry New Year!

Weekly Challenge #197

Welcome back to Laura over at i am the diva.  The challenge this week is to use Arukas in our tiles. But first I have some catching up to do.

I did a second tile for Sandy Hunter’s challenge #195, “Turning Old into New”. I started that week out showing you the different ways to do Widgets, but wanted to also show you a finished tile.

Next up is Emily Classon’s challenge #196, “All Dolled UP”. I had this one started, and worked on it during the week, but last week was a busy one for me as besides teaching full time, I was also getting ready to do an in service day for teachers at the end of the week, using a new program that we are learning this year at school. Those always make me a bit nervous, especially the tech piece, so I really needed to get my ducks in a row! I have a doll that a good friend of mine gifted me a couple of years back. It doesn’t really have a name per say…. It is called a "D, ends in it" doll, to be used for stress relief, and it was the first thing that popped into my head when I read the challenge. It gets used frequently when things are not going so well!  So here is a tangled "D" doll.

Lastly are the two Bijou tiles with a couple of different ways, using Arukas. I only had the wee ones with me, so would like to try this on a larger tile, but for now this will do. 

Thanks for visiting and for the kind comments you leave. They make my day.
Have a Great Week, and Tangle ON!
