After seeing the tags for 52Q on Jeanne’s blog – Dream Create Inspire and also Suzanne Duda's Pink Roses and other passions I decided to join.
It was organised by Emily ‘embers’. Each week Emily posts another question.

I think it was the questions that attracted me in the first place.
It has made me question many things in my life and try to work out where I am heading.
In so many ways it has been a rough 12 months for me and I thought this would help me work through so many issues.

What a great idea Alison. I'm sure you will benefit from this journey of self discovery and hopefully put some of the troubles and heartache of 2008 in perspective. I will look forward to seeing your weekly tag question and answer.

Dear Allison...I loved your tags for the 52Q. They were an inspiration to me and I just wanted to thank you for that. I have recently started making small scrapbooks of things I enjoy and am trying to work with the questions each time they are posted for the 52Q. Reading your blog tonight has given me the boost I needed to get started and catch up with the questions. Your work is beautiful. Thank you so much for posting your pictures.

Your centerpiece is gorgeous! Love all the white! And I see you are having a wedding. Looks like things are in good order. Congratulations.

Have a wonderful day,
