ALPHABET WEEKS

Thank you so much for all your beautiful tags posted to the blog in 2012.  They were amazing!!!

It was such a pleasure to host this blog and to see your many talents.  Also, the real life swap was such fun to host ... thank you to the players who took part.  I have yet to share my tags but will do so quite soon ...

I must apologise for my absence on the blog in recent weeks.  My Dad became very ill in December and passed away just before Christmas.  It's been an extremely difficult time for my family and I have had much to do in settling his estate and arranging the funeral.  I haven't had a lot of time to spare for anything else.  I am sorry I've neglected our lovely blog

Tag Tuesday continues in 2013 with the letters of the alphabet starting on Tuesday 8th January with the LETTER A.  Existing players ... if you want to carry on ... please do so.  New members on the waiting list I will be contacting you in the next few days and hoping to be able to offer you places

If you enjoyed playing along in 2012 but now wish to leave the blog and move on to new challenges ... perhaps you could send me a message so that I may offer your place to new members.  It was fun having you along and enjoying your lovely offerings ... good luck with your new projects xx

I hope you enjoy the alphabet weeks.  Anything goes ... any technique or mixed media ... any size tag and any theme so long as the relevant letter appears on your tag somewhere ... share how you made it and what you used and have lots of fun in 2013!!

Carolyn xx

  8. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father, Carolyn. It's very hard to dwell with the loss of a parent, but I can't even imagine what it would be like to do so during the Holidays. May the peace of The Lord be with you and your family.

  10. Dear Carolyn, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your Dad, my thoughts and hugs go out to you, it is a particularly difficult time of the year to cope with the emotions that accompany such a loss. I don't know how you managed all the tag swops, thank you so much for all your hard work. I have found gentle crafting when the mood strikes a great help. I aim to continue this year and am putting together my 'A'. My thoughts go out to you, hugs barb x

  17. Dear Carolyn,
    I'm sending you my warmest hugs as I know exactly how you feel at the moment because you know I lost my Mum last year in May and all the things that have to be done drain everything from you when you're trying to cope with grief. You do a tremendous job for all of us here and I hope the healing process starts for you soon. My sister and I are still sorting our Mother's house - she had been a widow for 35 years and therefore filled the home with all her own personal things - some tears and lots of laughs for both of us but at last there is light at the end of the tunnel. Hugs to you xxx
