Earlier this month, Chrissie from Jumbled Crafts, one of the T Tuesday participants, posted a challenge that was part of Every Inchie Monday, a site that describes itself this way:
Open to everyone: A weekly challenge that will leave you with 52 square inches of pure creativity! This is a great exercise for those that don't have a minute to spare. Imagine the end of the year....what will you create with your inchies??? How will you interpret the Inchie Word of the Week? Create one square inch of art with anything, post it on your blog and Flickr then leave a comment here with a link to your INCHIE. An inch a week is all we ask...The particular challenge that was posted that week was for 42s. I was so excited to see other folks interested in all things 42!
I KNEW you would like that. Every week, the theme is something from The Hitchhiker's Guide, so when I saw that 42 was coming up, I thought of you immediately. So glad you were able to see other crafters' interpretation of one of your favorite themes!ReplyDelete
Yes! Your T Tuesdays continue to show me fun stuff :)Delete
Fun to see this new 42. I'm not sure I get the story behind the number but one of these days I'll read the book and then perhaps it will be clear to me.ReplyDelete
There's not actually much to it. They ask for "the Answer to The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything," submitting the question to the supercomputer Deep Thought, which was specially built for this purpose. After 7½ million years, it says the answer is "42". The computer says the answer seems to make no sense because the beings who programmed it never actually knew what the question was. lolDelete
