52Q: 19

sometimes i need to really ponder these. sometimes i have no idea what i'm going to say until i sit down to write my card. this wasn't one of those times. when i read last week's 52Q question, i felt absolutely no ambivalence or hesitation; in fact, not only did i know what i wanted to say, i knew the image i'd use, as well. but i'm getting ahead of myself.

question 19: what gives me hope?

(software: broderbund printshop; poster image downloaded from the internet; flag clipart; fonts: brushstroke 26 & arial)

ok, so not to be mushy (or repetitive...i know i've mentioned it before!) but i *LOVE* our president. last year, for the first time in my adult life, i felt 100% excited and enthusiastic about a candidate...which was very nearly cool enough on its own...and then he actually WON! since i may never be this politically content ever again, i want to savor the next four years.

as soon as the word "HOPE" and the idea of obama met inside my cranium, of course i knew i wanted to use that iconic campaign poster. since i was downloading the image, it seemed easier to fit the words on digitally, and then make a "flipside" to match.

this is what's FAB about a year-long journaling project, you can have a page with your to-do list right next to one which records a completely historic national event. go 52Q!!!


  1. Good for you in finding a political cause that moves you. Don't ever get discouraged even if you don't feel 100% connected to a candidate or party, just stay involved!

    I have to look into this 52Q, sounds like a very interesting project!

  2. Way to keep up with your 52Q! At this rate, you won't be "catching up" all of December! :-)

  3. Hey! That's my boyfriend!! Man, he's looking goooooood ;-)

  4. Wow, I am staring to wish I had done this project! What an amazing thing this will be to have and look back on one day! Sooo cool Lauren!
