Day 3 already! Woo Hoo! And my contribution for the Diva challenge 170

So remember, the goal of the challenge is to be creative EVERY day!

Just DO IT!
I have perfectionist tendencies... if I let myself think too long I second guess everything I do, which is the heart of my own personal project this year and the challenge. Stop worrying about it and just DO IT!

For anyone new please check out how to participate.

Complete something. (There's a prize for the person that completes the most)
It doesn't have to be big, or intricate or spectacular. (See above.. just do it!)
Try and link daily, if not, please no later than each Sunday for it to count.
Link on each day's Linkey (There will be a new one each day starting today)
Tell your friends! The more the merrier!
Winners will be listed July 1!
1 winner for the most entries and 1 chosen at random.

Prizes
Sakura Microns in winner choice of black or color
Wooden spiral art set















So today, for MY creative project, I dove in the The Diva's weekly challenge, which is #170! WOW (I'm so behind! LOL)
The challenge is a UMT and to use Bugles. I'm going to be honest, I hated it while I was making it, then all of a sudden it came together. I still don't love it, but here it is. I love how her challenges push me outside my comfort zone. It really makes me grow and learn new things.


I also made tart cherry Zoku popsicles and last night I made homemade granola. YUM.


So what did you create today?

  1. Ah, I wonder if I'll always be first on your linky thingy; my day's finishing as your's is starting.
    Your UMT is great, but the colour of that ice-lolly is untterly FAB - I hope that it tasted nice too!
    BTW, I've made a button to link to your challenge - have a look - I'm sure that you can make a better one.

    1. Sal, I love what you did there with the steampunk heart. I didn't see the button... can you link me directly? I'd love to see it!
      The popsicle was delicious, it was a sour cherry pop. :D I had to make another batch!

  4. Beautiful work for the challenge. I love this focus on creativity of any sort. It is going to be fun to share some of things I do other that tangle - although that is what I mostly do. Let me know if my creative process today "counts". If not I will try to do something else.

    1. My "counting" things is going to be pretty liberal. :)

  5. I'm not sure Bugles was my favorite tangle, but it's always nice to learn new ones that you might otherwise pass by. Yours turned out quite nicely. I create daily but I'm not sure I have the ability to post daily HAHA! Good luck to you all though.

  6. So glad to know...if it's okay I'll probably end up posting my link every few days...I'm trying to post each thing on my new blog so they will be date stamped.

  8. I generally post at least once a week on my blog, but I think I'm going to try to post daily for this month. The funny thing is that I have posted the last 2 days and I had time/energy to do some art today, too. I'm so glad you found my blog and liked it and now I'm here!

  10. I like the blue in your tile. I think you have a great challenge here, I do create almost every day, but I will not participate because I go to my daughter in Switzerland for almost a week.
