A to Z Challenge starting soon! March 29, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — Cynthia @ 12:23 pm

In four days the A to Z Challenge will be starting. With over 1500 participants, It should be a great blog hop and a real learning experience.

There is still time to sign up!

I’m gathering up my thoughts and will have a generalized everyday feeling to my blog. I’m sure some adventures, maybe some wisdom, throw in a day of panic or two and maybe have some fun along the way. Sign ups can be found here.


A to Z Challenge Update March 14, 2013

Filed under: Writing — Cynthia @ 9:24 pm

      Have you ever had the feeling that you’ve bitten off more than you can chew and you’re ready to choke on it, but you’re excited about it at the same time? I’ve got that feeling.  No, I think I’m petrified.


      Why? you may ask? Well I’ve entered a writing challenge and to be quite frank, I suck at writing. So why did I decide to do this? Well I’m hoping after a month-long challenge I might learn a thing or two about writing, especially blogging.

      At this time over a 1000 participants are signed up for this challenge and more are being added each day . Some are professionals and some like me, are hoping for a clue.

     The challenge begins April 1, hopefully I won’t put anyone to sleep…….

     Want to join the A to Z Challenge?  Sign ups are still going on here

Out of Slumber……… March 4, 2013

     It’s been years since I’ve dusted off this blog. The cobwebs are thick and sagging and it’s time get creative again. I have been posting regularly to my jewelry blog Created Treasures so I have remained active in the blogging world.

     I’ve been feeling out of sorts lately and as much as I love reading my facebook, it has begun to bore me. I have actually started reading books again……It hasn’t been my favorite pastime, but I have been enjoying it. Crawling under my electric blanket and winding down with a book, has been the perfect destressor.  For me, this is amazing. I must own a few thousand books and have probably only read about 20 of them, I kid you not. My husband has always been the reader in the family and I am lucky if I can read a magazine article without falling asleep.

     I came across a blog with a challenge, a blogging from A to Z challenge. Not that I am very good with writing, but surely I can come up with something.

     Anyone else up for a challenge? It begins April 1 and lasts through the whole month minus all Sundays.  Signups are here.
