Tangled T-Day No. 1

The 50 by 50 Project: The Final Update

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 [continue reading…]


Photo A Day Challenge – December 1-18, 2016

#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 [continue reading…]
