A to Z

Ok, Im off holiday mode and back on the horse!
 I wanted to start with a goal of mine this year.
I was having a search around, for year long challenges ( Thanks Teresa for putting the idea in my head!!) and seeing what was out there last week, before I went to bed.
Now I dont fall asleep easy at the best of times, and my head was having a think, when I realised - there are 26 fortnights in the year right ( I hope, let me go check... ok Im good) and there are 26 letters in the alphabet!! Coincidence - yeah, probably, but Im running with it any way! 
That sent my little mind a buzz. I had been wanting to try a more arty type journal challenge and so have set my self a goal, ( any any one who wants to join in!!).

Each fortnight, a letter, and a page about me having to do with that letter. 
I decided to destroy a readers digest book and use that as my base so got my stapler out and organised it into 26 rough sections and have stapled away. 
So with out further adieu

The Letter A! 
Always Dreaming.
 Im using it as a try things, free flowing, trial and error, Anything goes journal. Might even learn a thing about my self and who I am behind the wife hood and motherhood, and all the other hoods I am.
I hoping to start showing these every second friday. 
A letter a fortnight, I can do that!

i am EXCITED to watch you do this throughout the year! i'm expanding my horizons considerably this year, so you will likely see loads of artsy pages from my journal, too. :)

GO YOU!

How totally neat is this? I am doing something similar but not so artsy...just more general...called Alphabe-Thursday.

I was really excited to find this! We are on the letter "G", though!

And it is just anything they want to post that ties to that letter...somehow...someway!
