Last weekend I went to a friends Christmas party and had a great time. Then I followed it up the next night with a little company get together that a coworker organized.
|Me and two of my besties!|
That picture above has one nasty little detail that you may or may not be able to see. I have been lugging some rather unattractive teeth jewelry around for the last year and on Monday I finally got to say goodbye to it!
|Yes this is a lame picture I took in my car but I was so excited|
to have my braces off!
I was so excited to get my braces off only to realize that I was now saddled with 4, yes count em, 4 retainers! Two permanent ones, and two removable. Between the braces, the retainers, and almost losing one that I wrapped in a napkin while eating lunch on the second day, I feel like a 13 year old!
Alrighty then, onto the Dare!
Zendala Dare #36
Here's this week's template:
Week 36 Zendala Dare Template
This week I wanted to incorporate a bunch of new tangles into my Zendala. I found that to make them work I required a lot of shading.
|Tangles: Wengz, Rain, Beadlines, Firecracker, Culdesac,|
AuraKnot + Paradox
I really like the way this turned out. I used a tangleation of AuraKnot + Paradox for the center and no matter how many times I try it, I am always amazed how good it looks. It's easier than you would think to combine the two. You can find the directions here if you want to give it a go.
I hope you all have a wonderful week of tangling and
preparing for the holiday season. Remember to stay
warm and link up below.
