I promised myself to start doing the DIVA challenges and here is the first one. This challenge was presented by a guest tangler Cris Letourneau CZT. Her challenge supports The Red Thread Promise organization. The challenge is to create a black and white tile with a red thread running through it. Tiles can be donated to an auction to benefit The Red Thread Promise.
Pigma pen and with white Gel pen. I like how the orbs look like they are going to roll right off the tile!
I had a great Thanksgiving with good friends – not without challenges though. We woke up to no heat or hot water! My husband and a buddy “jump started” the furnace and got it working but not fixed. So I did have heat and hot water for the day but it was a stressful way to begin!
I had decided to cook the turkey a different way. This year I brined the turkey. Here’s how it worked. That darn turkey bird is sat in a spa bath of cider and spices for 2 days and had to be turned over periodically. After it was done in the brine I had to, rinse it, pat it dry and then let it rest for an hour before cooking! Really! The bird needs to rest after sitting around in a spa bath for 2 days? Well I had to get up real early to allow enough time for the bird to rest! I have to say – that was the best turkey I’ve ever had! All of that work was worth it and I’ll cook my turkey this way from now on!
