I live in Oregon's beautiful wine country. My town is extremely small, in fact, we don't even have a stop light! But there is a larger town only 5 minutes away which has all the fast-food and art stores I need:) In addition to tons of vineyards, there are also lots of dairy farms, and farms that grow corn, hay, clover, and even blueberries. Has anyone out there ever bought a plant grown by Monrovia Nursery? Well, that's only about 15 minutes away from me, too. There's even a Trappist Abbey down the road from my house:)

I've tried to incorporate some of these things in my tile, like the grapevine for the vineyards, Archer for the Abbey, and Vache for the dairy farms. My little town is the 3rd oldest town in Oregon and is reported to be haunted. Yep, the whole town has been cursed by a witch who haunts our only graveyard! 'Nzeppel reminds me of cobwebs when it's filled in, which is why I put it in the tile, too.

I'm not overly fond of my work this week, in fact, I might go so far as to use the four-letter 'H' word, but I don't really have time to do another, so I'm forced to put it in here (and you're forced to look at it!:)

I have so enjoyed getting glimpses into everyone's lives this week! I hope you liked the small look into mine:)

Cadent Challenge

I can't believe I actually got my entry for this week's challenge in on Monday! Yay! I love Cadent and I use it often. I have to admit, I don't do much tangleation with this tangle because why mess with perfection? But I tried to do some here. I hope you like it:)

Circle Challenge

The challenge this week is all about eccentric circles. I love circles!!! I use them all the time in my other artwork and it's fun to dedicate this week's tangling to them. Happy circles, everyone:)
...time passes...
Oh No! I just re-read the challenge and discovered that eccentric circles shouldn't be perfectly circular:( I'm bummed, but I think I'll just leave this tile as my entry this week, cause I kinda like it:)
