My entry for the Sound of Music Challenge! JULVSBNE . I used a photo I had taken in our front yard of a rose bud just blooming. Printed my journaling out in light gray on vellum and layered it on top of the photo.
Other than my children and my husband, my favorite things are things that are just MINE! Things that only I understand the importance of. I love a good book….especially reading it while I am soaking in a nice hot bath. I love thunderstorms late at night and the smell of an approaching storm. I love looking at a rosebud just beginning to show its color.
My favorite season is summer. I love the sun shining on my face and the warmth in the air. I love the sounds of the neighborhood kids playing……of course I prefer them NOT to be in my yard! Haha! I love the sound of my neighbor mowing his lawn and the smell of the cut grass when he is finished. I love the smell of suntan lotion and tan little bodies running all over the place. Mostly I just love the nice weather.
My favorite hobbies are sewing and stamping/scrap booking. I love that I can create anything I want to if I just put my mind to it. I can make outfits for my sons or a card for my Mom. I can turn plain old pictures into works of art. I love being creative and turning ordinary things into something extraordinary. I love the feeling I get when I finish a page or card and look upon it and think “yep, that’s good!”.
I have many many favorite things…these are just some of the best to me. I know throughout my life this list will continue to grow and for that I am so very thankful! Life is good. The more “favorite thing” I can accumulate, the better life will get.
