Diva Challenge #348: Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day

January 24th is Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day. Moebius Syndrome is a congenital nerve disorder affecting VI and VII nerves controlling the lateral movement of one's face. Laura--aka The Diva CZT--has an adorable son, Artoo, who was born with this disorder, which only affects these facial muscles, and nothing else! Artoo, one of some 5,000 people in the WORLD with this disorder, is an intelligent, talented and fun-loving boy! If you follow the Diva's blog, you are regularly treated to cute pics and awesome updates on Artoo and his older brother, Chewie. This week the Diva asked us to tangle the logo for the Moebius Syndrome Awareness Foundation.

Last Sunday, I taught my first class on black Apprentice tiles. We had lots of fun. Here's a mosaic for our second tile.

This was only my second full week of substitute teaching since starting on January 2. Definitely a challenge to get "gussied up" five days in a row, make it to work by 7:40, face the elements for 45 minutes while I try not to frighten parents in the "kiss and go" lane with my unruly hair! Ha! For the most part, the days have gone by smoothly and quickly, but have left little time for tangling. I generally get home, change into my "active wear" and cuddle up with the cats until it's time for supper. By 8:30 or 9, I'm ready for bed! 

My office mates provide lively and thought-provoking conversation during the school day.

I did manage to do a couple "compassion meditation" monogram tiles for two of our students. Here's one.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by. I apologize for not getting around to see your posts last week, but hope to catch up!  Have a wondrous week!


  1. Love your tile! Colour and vibrancy are fabulous!!

  2. Love the way you made the Moebius-band! Beautiful colors!

  3. Beautiful Moebius tile and very nice results of the students!
    I wish you succes with your Zentanglelessons and with your teaching at school.
    Me too, did much substitute teacherwork and I know, it is a lot of work!
    Kind regards from Belgium
