I’m back with another entry to the weekly Power House Creatives contest! The post that talks about all the details, put together by the ever awesomesauce (although sometimes evil) @zord189 is called PowerHouseCreatives Contest | These Are a Few Of My Favourite Things (Contest Details), but here’s the gist of it…
These Are a Few Of My Favorite Things
This week’s contest would be a fun one because it’s going to be all about your favourite things. It can be something you can’t live without or something you take pleasure in doing. It can be your personal diary or playing soccer with your friends. I know some of us obviously have ‘wine’ as their favourite thing. Eg. @jaynie. But I want to know yours.
What are the 3 favourite things of yours?
For this contest, you need to take a photo of your favourite thing be it an item or an action or a representation of it and tell us why this means something to you.
This contest is an internal contest for the Powerhousecreatives Community
1. Contest entries no less than 350 words.
2. You must take a photo of all 3 favourite things.
3. Think of a nice title for your post.
4. Remember to credit the photos/videos selected.

So now here’s my entry called, “Desktop Delights”
These Are a Few Of My Favorite Things
Like most people, I have a lot of favorite things. Like, A LOT! So when Zord said to only pick three, my brain was like…
Obviously, the first three things that sprang to mind were my kids. But then I realized I’d have to take pictures of them, and the logistics of that almost melted my brain again (and yes, they all live at home… 😂).
Then I considered all the other possibilities – books, food, drink, Marvel characters, swear words, people… so many possibilities! I mean, I even have a favorite kitchen spatula that I’ve used for close to 30 years (it was my late Nana’s and ironically it came into my possession because she was getting rid of it)!
As I sat at my desk, trying to figure out three things that were something I could photograph with relative ease, I started looking around at all of the
dust and clutter little keepsakes scattered around, I thought, “Perfect! Three of my favorite things on my desk!”
It still took me an entire day to narrow it down to three.
Then the photographing turned into a bit more of a process than I thought. Since all three objects are all small, I had to find a way to get a decent closeup. I ended up using two of the homemade faux marble backdrops I have for my Tarot Tuesday posts, and placing them like a floor & wall (I know there’s a better, more technical sounding way to say it, but that’s the best my brain could do). As always, I used my Nikon (with the flash) and tripod. I was tempted to borrow the eldest’s professional lighting contraptions, but I think these shots turned out fairly decent without.
So without further ado, here they are!
My Favorite Things – Crow
My Favorite Things – Bluebird
My Favorite Things – DRD
See what I mean about fanatic? I hope you enjoyed seeing a few of the bazillion favorite things on my desk, and thanks to Zord for once again giving us a wicked cool contest idea to work with!
