A Little Homework Assignment

July 4th, 2011

Last fall a friend of mine did a scrapbooking class where she had to come up with words that described herself. I loved this idea and thought it would make a great blog series. So I’ll be doing Alphabet in August starting – you guessed it – in August. I’d love to have you join me, either on your blog or in the comments each day.

Since it can be a little tough to come up with words to describe yourself I figured I’d give you a head start. Pull out a piece of paper write the letters of the alphabet on it and put it on your fridge. Over the next 5 weeks start jotting down words starting with each letter that describe yourself.

If you want to follow along on your blog I’ll be uploading the photo above to my Flickr account at the beginning of August and you can grab it from there to use on your blog. Post your words every day and link back here in the comment section. If you don’t have a blog just comment your words. I’m really looking forward to hearing what words you come up with for each letter to describe yourself.

So what do you think? Do you want to join the challenge?

    August is my birthday month. I turn 45 on the last day of August and this will be a wonderful and useful way to reflect on myself and my life as I approach my birthday.

    Here’s the problem:
    There are 26 letters in the alphabet and 31 days in August.

      Yes, I figured I’d still do quotes on Sunday as a break from the alphabet.
