Challenge 58 and Calendar

Diamonds are our focus this week, while folk raise money for PEDIATRIC CANCER.
The Four Diamonds Fund was started by Charles and Irma Millard after their son, Christopher, lost his 3 year battle with cancer in 1972. Symbolic of the traits Christopher felt were needed to defeat cancer, he wrote a story in which the knight Sir Millard overcomes obstacles to achieve the four diamonds of Courage, Wisdom, Honesty and Strength.

At last I am up to date with calendar, BUT I am worried about next week cos I will need to work an extra 3 days to replace another art teacher going on a school camp! I am also worried about the time I'm putting in to doing zentangles!! Does anyone else feel like that?? Last night when I couldnt get to sleep I found myself working on the calendar!!

To make a difference this week , I thought I would do a coloured square with black and white either side to see how that looked. For the string I used the letters M,O,and N, extending the lines a bit. I was pleased with this one, bit more focused that last one ha ha.


  1. Your "diamonds" entry is simply lovely!

  2. Your zentangle reminds me of a kaleidoscopic from my youth. I love the blue!

  3. My husband and I both stopped when we saw this one - it's lovely! The blue makes it so soft and yet lively. Love your calendar entry as well.
