I know that some of you have told me that the paypal button does not work, and some of you have had no trouble, i'm not sure why it's inconsistent, i've redone the code a few times... If all else fails you can donate to my paypal address which is madam_diva ( a t ) yahoo ( d o t ) com - also to those people who donated this week... THANK YOU SO MUCH.
Thanks for everyone being so patient with me this past week, i have been busy with post-run stuff! Here's some photos from the run!

So thankful that we are able to give something back to this program that has and does mean so much to our children and our families.

I also had some time to try out Birds on a Wire, but not on a tile - here it is in my Tangle A Day Calendar!

Weekly Challenge #122: "Grid (un)Locked"
At the beginning of the month, Rick and Maria sent out the latest Zentangle Newsletter where they talked about using a grid in a new way.
Now, there are TONS of grid based patterns. But this approach is different. In fact Rick and Maria compare it to Tripoli, which was released in THIS newsletter wherein what you draw INSIDE the triangles becomes the 'pattern' as you line your triangles up together. In the Grid (un)Locked, all you need is one little square.
Here's a few of Rick and Maria's examples of those little square, or grid seeds as they call them:
This week's challenge is to try a Grid (un)Locked! You can use either one of Rick and Maria's grid seeds, or as an added challenge, come up with your own grid seed collection and use one of those!!
|I used seed # I-1 on this tile|
If you have a blog, add the site-specific URL where your tile is posted to the linkey machine below! Don't forget to link back here so that others can join in the fun! (if you don't know how to find this, you can see my half assed tutorial here)
Also, please feel free to come back often and visit the links of those people on the linkey machine - don't forget to leave a comment or feedback, everyone loves feedback. ;)
If you don't have a blog but still want to participate, you can email your tile to me and i will post it here. (please email to weeklychallenge(at)mail(dot)com). I just ask that you put in the subject line: Challenge # ________
The deadline for each weekly challenge is Saturday night so that i can round everyone up by Sunday. What this means is that i will stop adding tiles to the slideshow on Sunday. You're still more than welcome to do the challenges and add your name to the linkey machine.
I will be more diligent with the linkey machine - by editing out the ones that don't work, the doubles, the links that lead to nowhere, the links that go just to blog home pages (this is why we need those site specific urls), and the spam. And there is some spam. PLEASE do not put your *home* page in the linkey machine... please? for me??
