52Q: the end! (51 & 52)

i have wrapped up 52Q--made the cards, photo-ed them, put them on their ring, and posted them here--in the first week of 2010.

could i BE more impressed with me??!?! :)

thus without further ado, may i present...

question 51: what is the best gift you've ever given?

(spotted patterned paper: doodlebug; rub-on letters: ki; all other product: love elsie; pens: uniball & copic; adhesives: uhu gluestick, tombow monorunner)

text reads, "for the past couple of years we have had a blast at xmas: we wait for a good toy sale at k-mart, then fill a cart with all our faves and donate them to toys for tots. it's the best shopping trip of the entire year!"

and question 52: what magical thing happened to you this year?

(anahata katkin clipart; basic grey patterned paper; k&co & making memories rub-ons; mambi & nail art gems; tombow monoadhesive runner, judikins diamond glaze)

text reads, "52Q seemed like a pretty magical thing to spend a year thinkhing about questions big and small and make them into ATC's...thank you, emily falconbridge!"

finally, here is my finished "book"...a ring with 2 covers and 52 double-sided ATC's each asking and answering one of the questions:

i had a fabulous time doing this, and whilst i know that we all have too many commitments already, and only so much time in a day, i cannot possibly recommend highly enough the concept of regularly making something JUST FOR YOURSELF that you get to keep. i know it seems counter-intuitive, but in a weird way, it actually gives you MORE ideas and more creative energy! at least, this has been my experience; i am definitely NOT trying to talk anyone into anything...just mentioning a weird and wonderful thing which happened to me! ♥

just in case anyone is interested in seeing all of the fronts and backs of the cards together, here they are on flicker...or here are the blog posts, in reverse order.


  1. WOW...check out all those ATC's....what a fabulous year long project should be so proud of yourself...I thoroughly enjoyed your 52Q blog posts....woot woot!

  2. Woohoo for you! What a completely awesome project! I so loved looking at/reading every single one!
