This week’s Diva Challenge is very special for two reasons.
First, it is Laura’s 300th challenge! THREE HUNDRED!!!! Can you even imagine? What a wonderful contribution to the field of Zentangle! Thank you Laura!!!!!!
The second reason is that each year she posts a challenge to raise awareness about Moebius Syndrome.
Even if you don’t take the time to look at the tiles, please take the time to read Laura’s blog about her amazing little boy, Artoo, who has Moebius Syndrome. It is beautiful written from the heart and very touching. (And I really love the picture of her boys with their mustaches! So cute!)
To help raise awareness, the challenge is to create a tile using the Moebius Syndrome Foundation’s logo as the string. She provides two versions of the logo. Or you can create your own version of the logo, tangle on an actual moebius strip, or create something else to honor the syndrome. And she noted that purple is the color for this syndrome and asks, “Please consider wearing purple on Sunday, [January 29th] in support of our big man Artoo – The first baby to attend a CZT Conference in utero and resident CasaDiva cutie pants!!!“
Laura is going to send the link to the Challenge to her Moebius Syndrome support group on facebook so they can share in the support.
I used her version of the logo and here is my tile:
I was going to tangle behind the logo and then decided to let the logo shine all on it’s own with some shading. Not too sure about the shading, so I’ll go back and play with it some more. I always post my first tile that I create for the challenge, so here it is. 🙂
Be sure to check out the Diva blog to get a greater understanding of Moebius Syndrome and to see how others have responded to the challenge. I hope that you find these tiles inspiring and educational. I’m excited to see what others have created.
As always, I am grateful for all of your comments, which are a great source of encouragement and support.
There are times when I would like to leave a comment about someone’s tile but find that I am not able to do so because I don’t have any of the accounts required to respond. Sorry! I hope you know that I appreciate your tiles too!
Until next time,
