August Is All About My Favorite Things

August 1, 2008

Does anyone else hear Julie Andrews singing on top of a mountain? “There are a few of my favorite things…” The idea started percolating a a couple of weeks ago when a friend was telling me how frustrated she was when she had a t-shirt bled in her wash and I said “oh, I use these great things…” I think we all have things we use or buy that we love that other people don’t know about, or hadn’t thought about. So if you feel like joining in the fun, grab the button and start blogging.

There aren’t any parameters. If it’s a favorite thing of yours, then it can be included. I’m going to try and focus on the things I use for crafting and blogging. But I can’t say that I won’t include a picture of my favorite shoes.

These project bags are my first favorite thing. They are recycled pillow case and sheet bags. Like when you go to Target and buy a set of sheets, they come in this little bag. I like the pillow case size ones for when I’m knitting socks. And if you have more than one project going, they are clear so it’s easy to grab the right project. The sheet size bags are good for slightly larger projects. And perfect for traveling. We use them for cables and chargers when we travel. Or sometimes for toiletries. Or I can see creating an art kit for kids.

What would you use them for?

P.S. Special thanks to my Art Director, Bill, for creating the button.
