My birthday was last week and I didn’t take any time to do any tangling. I was excited to get back to it this week but then I got a hum-dinger of a headache yesterday. I’ve had the windows open the last couple of days and evidently the pollen count was a bit too much for me (and Tiffany) and we think that was the cause of the headaches. I was concerned that I wasn’t going to get a tile done to post on time but I started working on it anyway. I was amazed to find that by the time I’d finished the tile, my headache had lessened greatly! Whoo hoo! Thank you God!
The Diva Challenge this week is a duotangle using Dex and Bunzo in honor of the Diva’s 35th birthday this week. Dex is not one that I have ever done properly and I’ve never even attempted Bunzo before so this was definitely a challenge for me. I decided not to try and come up with some cool way integrate the two and just use a string. But I also did not want the pressure of picking a string either, especially since I already had enough pressure in my head from the pollen. Sooooo, I decided to draw the string with my eyes closed.
I just went with it. I’m not necessarily pleased with how dex turned out but it’s okay for the first time with it.
My pens are drying out, so I should really use my new ones but I hate to start the new ones while there is still ink in the old ones. How do you store your pens? Laying down or standing on one end – which end? I heard that you can turn the tip around using pliers and it will extend the life of the microns. Do you have any experience with this? Is it worth the effort?
I also need to get another pair of magnifying glasses for the detail work. I can really see the areas for improvement when I put it online because it is enlarged.
Well, as always, if I get any more tiles or zias done this week, I’ll add them here.
Until next time, God bless,
