It’s a String Thing #244, and more

 It’s a String Thing’s Challenge #244 is to use a 
star-like String;

and the Tangle Auraknot.

Here’s mine:

Behind the Auraknot I did a layer of Betweed, and
behind that layer, I just used inner auras.

Be sure to check out all the entries @ Tickled to Tangle, on Monday afternoon, when Adele Bruno posts them. Although, actually, it's usually more Monday evening before they're posted. The vast differences that can be achieved using the same tangles on the same string are truly incredible. And, if you've a mind to try a String Thing yourself, check back on Tuesday afternoon, or evening, when she offers the new ones. 

I also made 2 Birthday Cards: 

One for  my husband, using the Zen Button technique;
not too successfully, it seems; I haven't quite mastered it:

and one for a cousin’s 99th:

I think this is the most tangling I've done in one week
for a long time. I hope it's the beginning of 
getting my Zen back.

Diva's Challenge #262: UMT: SOMNEE

Well, it took me 6 weeks, but here I am, trying again.

Still not anywhere near "Normal" yet; but I AM trying.
And this was the first Challenge that I was actually
able to complete. I wasn't too crazy about SOMNEE
at first, but it turned out to be one that I could work 
with. I was going to try using color in some of the 
larger Orbs, but I ran out of steam.

So for what it's worth: here's my SOMNEE:
 Be sure to visit the Diva's site to see the other wonderful entries; it's amazing how different all the responses are. Maybe you'll be inspired to try out one of the Challenges yourself.
