If we met for coffee, I’d say with a sense of relief just what perfect timing it is, since I’m currently all out of my favourite dark-roast beans at home and have been relying on No Name instant (blech!) for the past couple of days to get my morning jump-start. [click to continue…]
Hey, Alphabet Salad readers – in case you missed (or perhaps forgot!) My 2017 Word of the Year + Linkup post, I’m here with a gentle nudge and timely reminder to sit down and write your own word of the year post and then link up with other bloggers below. [click to continue…]
As I was reminded today by the fabulous Melissa Ford of Stirrup Queens, an ancient internet tradition called International Blog Delurking Week is happening… right now! This week! And you – yes, I really do mean YOU – are invited to play! [click to continue…]
Welcome to my first-ever Tangled T-Day! OK, so it’s not really all THAT different from my previous Tangled Tuesday series – I’ve just decided to tweak the process a little (check out this post if you’d like more details), and to mark the transition I’m [click to continue…]
This morning I (along with a goodly portion of the population, I’m betting!) stepped gingerly onto the scale for the first time in a few weeks to face up to the damage done after a (mostly planned) spree of holiday indulgence. I nervously peeked [click to continue…]
Happy New Year to you, Happy 50th Birthday to me, and welcome to my first (annual?) New Year’s “Not Resolutions” post at Alphabet Salad!
You might recall that toward the end of 2015 I shared my 2016 Word of the Year – Progress – and followed up at the start of January with an explanation of a project I’d conceived to help me put the word into action in the new year. My introduction [click to continue…]
Happy (almost) New Year, Alphabet Salad readers! Since we’re very quickly approaching the end of 2016 (and considering all the rotten stuff that took place in our world this past year, I say moving on to a fresh new one can’t happen [click to continue…]
This month I am early in terms of sharing my Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge pics for December, the rather pathetic reason being that I got off-track partway through and was never actually able to get caught up. Oops!

A whole bunch of fun, good, interesting, varied, and generally wonderful stuff kept me busy this past year – so busy that my poor blog was sadly neglected, especially when it came to writing anything of substance. One of my aims for 2017 is to remedy this [click to continue…]
Merry Christmas Eve! Dashing in between the festivities of the season to share my final tangled catch-up before getting back on schedule for the new year. Today I’m wrapping up this mini-series with some odds-and-ends – tangled goodies, challenges, and [click to continue…]
Continuing on from Tangled Catch-Up – Part 1 and Tangled Catch-Up – Part 2, today’s post is an update on the wonderful (and it truly has been wonderful!) world of tangled teaching and my life as a CZT. Hope you enjoy!

Ready for another tangled catch-up post? Don’t mind if I do! Carrying on from Tangled Catch-Up – Part 1, today I thought I’d share with you the finished projects I’ve completed since my latest Tangled Tuesday post. Hope you enjoy!

After reaching my 100th Tangled Tuesday, I think I must have collapsed with exhaustion – not when it came to tangling (of course!), but as far as actually taking the time to share what I’ve been up to here on Alphabet Salad – yeah, that part kind of fell by the wayside. [click to continue…]
Happy 100th Tangled Tuesday to me! I’m afraid this milestone kind of crept up on me in the midst of all my usual tangling, so I didn’t think to do anything special to mark the occasion. Ah, well – I do have a lot of new stuff to share with you today, [click to continue…]
This has definitely been a big week in my corner of the tangling world, as it marked the publication (finally!) of my much-planned, long-anticipated, Zentangle-Inspired Art colouring book! I’m so thrilled it’s done, and excited to share it with you all. More on that [click to continue…]
