This year we are doing something new. Usually, we each pick a name out of a hat and buy a gift for that person. This year, my sister-in-law suggested we buy a “few of our favorite things.”
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things
– from the Sound of Music
What a fun idea! Maybe the gifts we will become our new favorite things.
My favorite thing?
Painting in watercolor of course! I bought a starter watercolor tube set, watercolor paper, painter’s tape, white gouache and to offer some instruction my book: Beginner Watercolor Exploration.
- Watercolor tubes starter set with built in palette – Cotman by Winsor & Newton
- Watercolor Paper – Fluid watercolor blocks
- Painter’s tape – for taping down your paper
- White Gouache by Holbein – for adding white back in
I can’t wait to see all the gifts and I hope the person who picks mine is excited to try watercolor!
What are your favorite things?
