The 50 by 50 Project: The Final Update

You might recall that toward the end of 2015 I shared my 2016 Word of the YearProgress – 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…]

My 2017 Word of the Year + Linkup

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…]

Photo A Day Challenge – December 1-18, 2016

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!

#MicroblogMondays 122 – My first creative love

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…]

Tangled Catch-Up – Part 1

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…]

Tangled Tuesday No. 100

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…]

Tangled Tuesday No. 99

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…]

Yes, I am very late with this post! I actually started writing it several days ago (i.e., on time!), then got all caught up in Zentangle- and CZT-related stuff and completely forgot to finish and share. Oops!

Photo A Day Challenge – October 1-16, 2016

Lots of little bits of good news for me on the photography front – beginning with the fact that it’s October 16th and, unlike the last couple of months, I’ve actually been able to stay on track with my daily pics for the Fat Mum Slim Photo A Day Challenge. [click to continue…]
