A simple one

I can’t say much about this one…but it represents love and hope. This week’s challenge was to use the tangle Hollibaugh–a perennial favorite and one I teach new students all the time. I added in a burst of Arukas for the life-force I want to summon. Update: adding one more since I was on a […]

Tipple Me Independent

Again, with only office supplies at the ready, I took a quick stab at this week’s Diva challenge: Tipple Monotangle. Since I was so very late with my Umble Panda and Umbles and Ruflz last week, I thought that I might take an early approach on this one. My sincere hope is to revisit and […]
