Art Journal Activity: A Few of My Favorite Things...

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens...these are a few of my favorite things...”  I don’t know if this is a holiday tune per se, but it does seem to get a lot of airplay this time of year. 

Looking for a fun art journaling or journaling activity?  Try building a list of your favorite things.  Listed below, are a few of my favorite things:

Color:  to wear=black; to view=a soft, petal pink

Cake: red velvet

Actress: Audrey Hepburn

Flower: tulips (Truly, I love all flowers... However, there’s nothing more exciting than seeing the first signs of bloom appearing each spring!)

Season:  Spring--maybe, Summer--make that Fall—I really cannot decide! As you can see, winter didn’t make the list (smile).

Holiday: Halloween (Yes, I know...)

Comfort activity: read and/or write in bed

Style icon:  This varies quite often, but right now, it's Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Book:  Too many to choose.  Same with "fave author." For me, it's only non-fiction, though.

Wine: dry rose’

Scent: lavender

Guilty pleasure:  watching reruns of Ghost Whisperer (Please, don't laugh!)

Day of the week:  Friday (oh, yeah...)

Childhood holiday gift: Suzy Homemaker vanity (complete with three-way mirrors!)

Vacation destination: any place that's quaint and has mountains (or foothills)

Snack food:  white cheddar rice cakes 

Yoga pose: tree

Feel good: snagging an incredible find at a thrift, vintage or consignment shop

Candy: dark chocolate Hershey Kisses

The possibilities for this project are endless.  Play + have fun!  Check out this past post for suggestions on how to turn this into an art journaling activity.

Joy and peace!  T.
