I am going to use this opportunity though to do a little public service announcement. The H1N1 flu is really taking a toll this year. It has already claimed the life of a paramedic in Florida and a 23 year old man right here in Sonoma county as well as several other people. It is so important to get vaccinated and it's not to late. If you have not received the flu vaccine yet I urge you to contact your doctor or local clinic and find out where it is available. If you are one of those people who hates needles you can even get it as a nasal spray now. In case you do not have health insurance, the vaccine is not very expensive and there are always discounted or free options available.
Many people who die don't actually die from the flu per se, but rather the flu exacerbates existing medical conditions. If you have an existing pulmonary condition like emphysema or chronic bronchitis or are prone to pneumonia it is especially important to get the vaccine. Please don't take a chance, get vaccinated! And remember, hand washing is your best defense against infection so do it well and do it often.
Zendala Dare #87
Let me start by saying that I loved all the Zendala Dare submissions last week. It was so much fun to see what everyone was grateful for. I was especially touched by all the people who said they were grateful for the Zendala Dare. I love doing it every week for you guys so it was nice to hear that so many people enjoy it.
Here's this weeks template:
I was going for a simple tile this time but things don't always work out as planned.
|Tangles: Socc, Chemystery, Batter|
I started with Batter in the middle and then Socc just evolved out of that. I wanted to lighten up the edges so Chemystery seemed like a good choice. The overall effect is more complex than I was going for but I like the difference in textures I was able to produce.
I hope you have a fabulous week!
