Paradox and 70


Since I was 40 I never really celebrated my birthday, just my children and my best friend came to visit.
Last Sunday it was my 70th birthday and I did celebrate, in fact because my daughter convinced me to do so, telling me that it really is a reason to celebrate because lots of people don't make it to that age and I think she is right. That I still don't like this ageing thing, is a different matter. You, tanglers of about this age, how do you feel about getter old(er)?

So, I invited some friends and ordered catering for an Indonesian buffet, which was fantastic:
I'm glad I did this, because it was a good and warm evening.

Up to the challenge.
I love Paradox, so I loved this week's challenge to use it in a monotangle.
Loved every minute of working on my tile last night. Even love the result!


Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you leave me a comment; I do appreciate that a lot. Work created by fellow tanglers can be seen at 'I am the diva'.

Blessed be!
Annemarie

  1. Van Harte Gefeliciteerd met je 70e verjaardag, een mooie leeftijd om groot te vieren. Ik werd afgelopen zondag 66 jaar. Wat een heerlijke tangle is Paradox om solo te tekenen hΓ©! Hij is prachtig zo met de turkoise accenten.

  4. Happy 70th!! I wasn't sure how old you were. I am 67 today and usually don't pay much attention. I have felt physically older than my years for a long time due to all the health issues--but inside I am still just a young thing and am shocked to see what is happening to the shell I live in--ROFL! ;) Happy birthday!!! :) :)

  10. Anne, your Paradox monotangle is GREAT. It reminds me of window coverings; very lacy ones. I like that you included some blue sky behind it. That makes the "lacyness" stand out. This is just a great interpretation of the challenge for this week.

  16. Happy Birthday and I like your tile. I also am a fan of Paradox. I find it very relaxing, which is why I wanted to participate in this challenge. Have only looked at a few submissions. As far as aging, I am a only a few years behind you. I do not think about it a lot as I am helping with my mother and mother-in-law. They are 89 and 93 respectively. Guess that helps with my perspective. Some days I feel older than others but still hoping to keep going strong.

  17. What a milestone, Anne, 70 and still drawing!!!! Of course you need to celebrate that number! Your tile is wonderful, Anne, and there are a lot of spider-fine lines in there that give it that very special flair!

  18. Happy Birthday and especially for your 70th birthday. I will be there in two years time myself. Not sure I like this age thing myself. Your Paradox tile shows that you like that tangle, very nice tile.
