As usual this week has been busy, busy, busy. Five days of work this week but luckily the 911 gods were pretty forgiving and things were pretty mellow. The weather has been cloudy and cool which is heaven for me, especially when I'm working because I hate to be hot. Just ask my partner Mini! Last Sunday the husband and I stole away some time and went to the Harvest Fair. It's like a low key version of our county fair with ALOT of wine tasting. It's one of the highlights of my year.
The biggest event of the week however, happened today. I went to orientation for nursing school! Due to some unforeseen circumstances my life was turned upside down last week and I had to take a hard look at whether or not I would even be able to attend nursing school which starts in January. I had to make a list of pro's and con's and with a lot of pep talks from my friends, a heart to heart with my mother, and realizing that I have the best husband in the world, I made the decision to continue on and I will be attending school in January. The logistics won't be easy but I hope that at 1:00 am about 2 years from now I will be writing a post telling you how awesome my graduation party was! (That's a hint Ben, Mom, Chris, Andrea, Miniature, Debbi, Chandra, Stephanie, Greg, and Margarito, you should help too!) So what I need from you my faithful readers is a little leeway when this craziness gets underway in January. I promise to do my best to get you a Zendala Dare every week and you need to promise not kill me when I completely forget to post it on Saturday and it shows up on Sunday instead!
Now lets move onto something awesome, MY GIVEAWAY. Last week I announced that I had reached 200 followers. I still get a little giddy every time I see that the number has grown and I wanted to say thank you. Two lucky readers will be receiving a set of official Zentangle Zendala Tiles. Even though I post a Zendala template here each week, they are done in my style. The style of the official tiles is completely different and let me tell you, they...are...cool! So without further ado, the lucky winners are:
Ekko and Rita
You should have already received an email that explains how to receive your prize.
Thank you so much to everyone who participated. There will be another giveaway soon when I hit another milestone. The first person to guess what it is and comment below will get a little "pre-milestone" prize so put on your thinking hats and post a comment!
Zendala Dare #27
|Tangles: Radi8, Facets, N' Zeppel, Confettus|
I know, I know. "There's so many little spaces!" But if I posted one with big spaces people would complain they are too big. That's right, it's called a Dare for a reason! To be honest even I thought this one might have too many little spaces but remember, the template is a suggestion, not a rule. Do what feels right. For me, what felt right was to eliminate a line or two this week. I don't normally do that, but my first version asked for it. I will probably do a second that doesn't modify the template because the whole time I was working on it I kept coming up with other awesome ideas. This one turned out to be one of my favorite Zendalas.
Have a great week and remember to link up below.
