You are my Favorite!


Hello from Louisiana.....It's Amy here. I just noticed that we have 199 followers and I think that deserves a little celebration. Tell a friend about Fave Things and let's make it 200 or more.

You all amaze us every challenge with your creativity. You inspire us and I just want you to know I am so thankful to get to know you all a little more each challenge. Scrap booking is a very personal thing. Especially when you are scrapping about yourself and your favorite things. I find it refreshing to step outside my comfort zone and remember I have a favorite something and I should share it....Not only with you but with my family. It is encouraging when we look at the positive things in our lives. Life is busy and we get caught up in the day to day... Thank you for taking the time to share your life with us. We love you and appreciate you....


I was getting together some Valentines for a few friends and well....
I think all of you are my favorite friends.

So here is what I am going to do.
I have 5 goodie bags full of buttons, ribbon, lace, old milk caps, vintage book and music papers, vintage cards and other bits and bobbles.

Comment here and tell us what your #1 favorite thing in the whole wide world is.
We will choose 5 people who comment on this post to win a goodie bag from me!
Tell your friends...Let all your favorite people know...
We will announce the winners on February 19th. That is one week from today.

Who knows your favorite thing may become one of our challenges.

Have a fabulous Valentine Weekend. Hugs, Amy

P.S. Copy and save the vintage Valentine images above to cut out and use on a special Valentine Page.

Cute cards. My favorite thing in the whole wide world is actually how different everyone's lives are and that the internet allows to "meet" and get to know them without having to get on a plane.

Then of course...there is always chocolate. :-P

yyam said...

My fave thing is discovering new things about myself. You never know what you can do until you take the step to try something out. Turns out I'm capable of greater things than I ever thought possible!

Nitasha said...

Your site is fantastic! I became a follower today because I don't want to miss out on all the awesome craftivity here! And thank you for sharing the vintage valentine--too cute! Oh and to answer your question...My favorite thing in the whole world is my faith. I can't imagine a life without the love and protection of God. And of course next in line is my family- can't imagine life without them either!

Marit said...

I could come with family and all, but those are not "things" to me... my very favourite THINGS is BOOKS!!!! All kinds. Literature, kids books, educational books... no matter what, if it's readable: I read it! All those different worlds (even imaginairy worlds) to go "disappear" in just by turning pages and read... that's my favourite thing!

Happie Stamper said...

Hi I became a follower today. I want to start participating in challenges and I think this where I'd like to begin. It will push me to scrapbook about me since it will be "MY FAVORITE THINGS"

I have so many favorite things... but if I have to say one thing it is my parents for giving me life- teaching me and raising me to be who I am today.

Teri said...

What a fun little giveaway! :) My favourite thing is a good meal shared with people I love. :)

Nicole Terry said...

MY Favorite "things" I would have to say are my scrapbooks that I have made. It makes me happy to make them and I love to see other peoples reactions when they look through them!

Natalie said...

my favourite thing right now is when my baby sleeps peacefully. You know how they can scream and scream and you reach the end of your rope. But as soon as they're asleep, they're back to being the most wonderful and cute thing in the world!

mommyof5kidz said...

Such a fun give away!! Right now, my MOST FAVORITE THING is listening to the funny, quirky, hilarious things that my kids can come up with. Just yesterday, My 4 year old told me the
"Mommy, that turkey is lying to me."
!!!??? What ???!!!! After her very long and detailed explanation, I deducted that the TURKEY in question was the rooster next door that will crow at all hours of the day. The reason he is lying to her is because "Turkeys are only supposed to crow at wake up time"
I could not stop laughing!!!

Monique said...

What a great give away! My favorite thing in the whole wide world right now is the time spent with the 5 of us without anyone fighting!! LOL!
And now I'll start on your challenge!
TFS!!

I have to second Heidi - my favorite thing is watching my kiddos reach milestone after milestone, and being able to hold their hand (or let go as the situation may require) along the way :).
