joey's weekly tangle challenge #197

Happy 2018 to you!
I hope that you are enjoying a
wonderful, restful holiday season!

So far our season has been filled with as many creative moments that we can fit in including gift and card making, home decorating, baking and even a few more eco-art creations squeezed in there too!

I mentioned in my last post that I was going to be making a slight adjustment to our weekly challenges and I hope that it won't be too big of a disappointment to you.
I have decided to stop subscribing to the Mr Linky gadget.  Traffic to the new website has slowed to about 100/day, and while most of that is for the weekly challenge, the actual number of participants has dropped.  I wish I had more time to try to attract more visitors but at the moment the day to day of family life takes priority.
I still enjoy doing the challenges but it just doesn't warrant the yearly cost for the gadget anymore.
 
So we will be switching to a comment link up method instead.
Leave a comment with your URL and we can link up to each other that way.

Here is the first challenge of the year!
This can be done on a tile or in a sketchbook.
Start by dividing the tile or page in half either vertically or horizontally.
Then draw the following shape on either side of the line.


Tangle inside the shape on one side and outside of the shape on the other.
Tangles are up to you.

Remember to leave a URL link in your comment below
so that we can visit you.
Happy start to the year!

    1. Gudrun, looks to me that, yes, you understood correctly. I had to copy and paste your URL, but it took me right to your tangle. Great tangle, I like it a lot.

    2. Great tangle for the tip of the pencil! I also love the 'windows' and that there is so much movement in the bottom half.

    2. I can't seem to get my Yahoo acct to work to leave a comment there but I wanted to say that I really liked how you fit in so many different tangles by dividing the top pencil. Very clever!

    1. I loved all your tangles, Margarete, but the second "pencil" one was my favorite, with all the flowery leafy looking tangles. I thought the wishes for a Happy New Year to your readers was so sweet, and I wish the same for you.

    1. Hi, Susie, I already commented on your blog, but I forgot to tell you how much I love your Toodles tangleations...and that I have stolen one of them, lol. You have such an imaginative mind. Also love how you used Alien Spore, a tangle that even tho I like the looks of, I couldn't figure out exactly how to use it. So thank you! All your work has helped me, as well as inspired me.

    2. I like Alien Spore...well, it is organic like Toodles. Now you made me curious. which Toodles tangleation did you 'steal'? Is there a link to the tile?

  7. ***HELLO EVERYONE! I AM WORKING ON ANOTHER OPTION FOR THE LINK UP, THIS METHOD ISN'T USER FRIENDLY! I THOUGHT THAT IT WOULD AUTOMATICALLY CREATE A LINK IN YOUR COMMENT, HAVING TO CUT AND PASTE ISN'T GOING TO WORK. DON'T WORRY I'LL FIX IT!***

    1. Thank you! I, for one, will definitely appreciate you for fixing it. Admittedly, I would still come here and fight with the C&P, and comment on the tangles here, but yes, it's really a hassle to do it this way. Having said that, thank you again for all the hard work you put into this blog for all of us. I totally love it, and I appreciate you.

  12. Happy New Year 2019
    Day, likewise called totally New year‘s or New a year, is found on January 1, the principal day of the year at the cutting edge Gregorian timetable and in addition the Julian schedule.

    In pre-Christian Rome underneath the Julian logbook, the day changed into focused on Janus, divine force of portals and beginnings, for whom January is similarly named. As a date in the Gregorian timetable of Christendom, New Year’s Day ritualistically denoted the dinner of the Naming and Circumcision of Jesus, which keeps on being seen all things considered in the Anglican Church and Lutheran Church.
