Numbers Challenge

Here’s the rules:
1) 100 words or 1 graphic.

It’s that easy.
There is no need for your work to all connect. There is no need for them to be in order.

If you are stuck or would like a random word to use, poke me and I will provide.

Really Random Tuesday (which is also really rather late)

Welcome back to Tuesday!

I should have had this posted already, but I got caught up in decluttering this weekend and forgot.  *headdesk*  But, on the bright side, I have space under my sink now.

This week's song is one that came up randomly on Spotify this morning and i'd forgotten how much I love it.  Two of my favorite artists coming together to make what I feel is an anthem for my life.  "Burning Man" by Dierks Bentley with Brothers Osborne.  (Gotta love a song that mentions Joshua trees!)

And another from the Zayne Files... although, this is probably more me than it is him.


Today's quote comes from the craziest book I've reaad this year: Bath Haus by P. J. Vernon. 

When it comes to lying, there’s a golden rule: tell as much truth as you can. The truth is, after all, the easiest to remember. It’s the most consistent with inarguable fact.

Have fun!  I look forward to seeing what you create from this bit of Tuesday monring chaos.

(P. S. I need a tag... don't know if I can make one myself?)

Crossovers: Who wants a reward?

Hey everyone! Crossovers Challenge finished last Friday, and you guys did great! skargasm did something like ten entries, which was fabuloso! YAY, you! I am definitely making you a banner, and I've asked what pics you'd like on it elsewhere, so do let me know.

Two others that I know did something are the wonderful jujukittychick and the delightful asphaltcowgrrl, and you two deserve some pretty banners too! What sort of pictures would you like me to use?

Did anyone else manage something that they haven't linked yet, or you have linked but in my blindness I haven't spotted? Give me the news here (and a link if you have it handy) and I will gladly make you a banner too. Bear in mid I no longer have access to PS, so it'll be done using the majick of free programs on the internet. ;-P

Let me know by the end of this week and hopefully I will find time next week as I am taking a WHOLE WEEK off work. It'll be a staycation as we're still in lockdown here in Auckland (10th week starts tomorrow), but I need a break and I have so much stuff to do! I am very happy to be having the time off, even without going anywhere, I can tell you. I am completely over this lockdown, but this will help! ;-)
