Quote of the Day: Alphabalance by Shel Silverstein
Balancing my ABCs
Takes from noon to half past three.
I don’t have time to grab a T
Or even stop to take a P.
Loved it! I’ll do it again next year. My favorite part of it was taking pictures of letters. I had most of the letter pictures before the challenge. I stuck with the same Quote of the Day which helped explain my theme. I had lists of words for the day and posted a few ahead of time. Knowing that events happen throughout the month that I would want to write about, especially reviews, I didn’t work too far ahead. Overall, the writing and planning went well. Reading all those great blogs, though. Impossible. I discovered so many wonderful new blogs. I’ll be spending the next month rediscovering them as I catch up.
Thank you for reading my posts. Some people, like my sisters and a few close friends, read every day and said they liked knowing I had a new post every day. That’s what keeps the momentum alive. Thanks to new followers and all the fabulous comments. What a wild and wonderful ride I had in April. I’d like to use my A to Z photos and make a calendar from the 2012 challenge.
Go. Create. Inspire!
Journaling Prompt: What could you do with an A to Z prompt, in life and in art?

It was a pleasure to read your posts in the challenge and I will continue to do so now it is over.
I too enjoyed the challenge, but couldn’t keep up with all the wonderful bloggers doing the challenge as well. I chose to write about things related to my art life, and that helped me focus much more than last year. I had a thought of maybe doing colors next time–each letter representing something about a color.
Your posts were so interesting. I tried to read you every day. I hope I did. I read your sisters a couple of times.
I love your idea for the Calendar.
I’m not sure what I’d do with an A to Z prompt for journaling, but then, I never every really managed to do maintain a journal.
Interesting that I actively maintain two blogs… 😉
Your opening poem was cute. Made me laugh. 🙂
Glad you enjoyed it so much!
Oh make a calendar! That’s an awesome idea! I’d totally do that except I’d probably scare a lot of people if they saw the pictures, lol.
A to Z was hecka awesome! I’m glad you had a good time with it too 🙂
Enjoyed your post. A calendar would be a cool idea.
I’m so grateful that the A to Z Challenge led me to your blog. That was the best part of the challenge for me, “meeting” some wonderful new people.
I look forward to continuing to follow your posts!
As for the ABCs, though, I think I’m alphabetted out! A book for every letter would be an interesting challenge, either to read or to write, but I think it would be a bit much!
Mary, thanks for bringing Shel into the fold today. Adam’s class did a readers’ theater last week enacting Shel poems. You would have loved it. It was silly and fun. Congrats on making it through the challenge!
You have such a great attitude about everything. After reading this, I want to participate it in next year too.
Good job on the challenge. I really wish I could have done it. Maybe next year…
The best part of the challenge was meeting new people… I’m so glad we connected!
Thank you for the encouraging and inspiring comments you left on my posts!
I will definitely be a regular here at your place!
Thanks for visiting and sharing the A to Z Challenge!
I wish that I’d read more of your posts, you were certainly faithful in reading mine.
When you make your calendar, are you going to post a link to it on your blog? That would be really cool to see.
Congratulation on finishing the challenge. During the challenge I didn’t visit as many blogs as I would like to but, cross my heart, I’m visiting every single one with the reflection post (and I’m almost done)! I am so glad my journey brought me here.
Evalina, This and that…
