Day 4 - Blog Candy!

Here's today's set of goodies, again from My Favorite Things :) There's another white gel pen, and the stamp set is "Serenity Now", which I thought would be a nice one for the weekend giveaway :)

For today's entry, keeping with the "serenity" theme, I'd like you to leave a comment telling me your favorite ways to relax. All entries should be posted before 6am (MST) on Sunday, January 25th. I'll draw a winner that day :)

Enjoy! And....breathe.... :)

My favorite way to relax is to have a cup of tea and look at pictures of my kids or a special event. Chocolate is usually included. :)

I have a couple of things depending on the time of day:

If it's before supper time, putting on some relaxing music and reading a book or magazine usually does the trick.

If it's evening, I have a cup of hot Sleepy Time tea on my comfy couch.

When I need to relax in the weekend I go birdwatching. Walking in the forest with only nature around you! Thanks for a chance to win! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

My favorite way to relax is surfing the web with some relaxing music playing in the background.

What I would do to relax also depends on the time of the year. During the winter, I usually like to read a book or surf the net looking at everyone's great new card creations.
In the summer, I like to sit outside and listen to the water in our mini creek water feature and watch the birds in our yard.
Thanks for a chance to win.

I like to curl up on the sofa with a good book or magazine and a hot cup of tea.

Donna January 24, 2009 at 6:46 AM  

Every AM I fix a quick SF latte, & sit @ the computer to read wonderful blogs & see beautiful inspiration. THEN get going on the day. Love my time! Thanks for the chance!

My favorite way to relax is definitely a bubble bath. I just picked up two new Philosophy bubble baths at Sephora last weekend. I've already tried out the Red Hots scented and the Pink Layered Cake scented will make it's way into my tub soon! Heavenly!!

Thanks for the blog candy contest.

I've been a movie fan for ages and my fav way to relax is to kick on a DVD (romantic comedies) and settle into my fav chair w a cup of coffee ... I love getting up before the rest of the household and enjoying a cup of coffee in the quiet there too - today browsed thru my latest PaperCrafts mag there.
Thanx for the inspiration and chance at t'riffic blog candy!

Well, since I've found Google Reader I put all my blogs on there and just sit at my computer and read all the inspirational blogs on rubberstamping or scrapbooking. I find that very relaxing and it helps relieve the stress of the day! Great blog candy!

Honestly, my favorite way too relax is coloring. For some reason, when I sit down to color, all of my thoughts are focused on the beauty of the colors I am using and my cares seem to melt away. It's like a vacation from my brain! I LOVE it! (hey my blog's name really does mean what it says! :) LOL) Thanks for the chance to win!

Tracey January 24, 2009 at 8:34 AM  

Great blog candy Toni!! Thanks for the chance! I love this set!!

Myfavourite way to relax is to surf my blogs with a cup of tea!! I also enjoy scrapping time or watching a movie or reading a good book!!

A cup of tea, a good book or some soft music. I am in heaven.

Sherrie Conner January 24, 2009 at 9:10 AM  

My source of relaxation comes from paper, ribbon, and stamps! When my 3 sons are gone or playing, I grab a hot cup of joe, and head staight to my craft station for some down time! I feel quite rejuvinated after I have poured my heart out into a card!

Alice January 24, 2009 at 9:11 AM  

I like to curl up on the sofa with something to read or something mindless to watch on TV. If a cat decides do join me, then it is perfect!

Anonymous January 24, 2009 at 9:15 AM  

I do!! I love it, i've eyed this set since I started. Obviously I love to paper craft too!!! :)

Patti January 24, 2009 at 9:48 AM  

A book, a cup of tea and cozy lighting is one way I relax. Another is to go to my craft room and create scrapbook pages. In either situation I turn on my favorite music of that day - it depends on my mood what I listen too.

My favorite way to relax is by going to a particular beach in town on a rainy day. It has more forest than it does sand, and I like to sit on a log and listen to the raindrops hit the leaves on the trees and bushes, and I enjoy how the rain makes all the greenery brighter and brings out earthy smells. On account of the rain, I often have the beach all to myself... it's my favorite way to be alone with my thoughts, reflect, relax and rejuvenate.

Jodi January 24, 2009 at 11:13 AM  

My favorite way to relax is with a nice hot bubble bath ~ and then of course I turn on the "jacuzzi" jets. While in the tub sometimes I will read a book and other times watch TV.

Thanks for the chance to win.

If I'm just 'over busy', my favorite way to relax is to light the fireplace and settle on the couch with a mocha latte and a good book. If I'm upset about something, my favorite way to relax is to pray and turn it over to God.

I love to light a candle with a beautiful smell, curl up and relax to some light music. I can drift away to another world in my mind and forget my troubles.

Jamie January 24, 2009 at 4:57 PM  

I love to sit down with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book, or with my laptop reading blogs. It is such a nice way to wind down.

Paula January 24, 2009 at 6:19 PM  

My favorite way to relax is to sit by a fire at the farm, but if I can't do that, I'll take lying on the couch reading a good book.

Janna January 24, 2009 at 7:15 PM  

My favorite way to relax is to take a warm bath and read a good book. There really is nothing better!


Julia D January 24, 2009 at 7:32 PM  

I have a huge tub in my master bath and love to run a really hot bath with good smelling bubble bath, good music, and some candles.

Laying in bed w/my laptop blog hopping is my favorite way to relax.

Shelley G in Iowa January 24, 2009 at 10:38 PM  

I love sleeping on the beach, with my chair just in the surf. As soon as get settled I'm relaxation mode! However,that only happens during one week out of the year. The rest of the time I make a batch of popcorn and veg in front of the TV!

Rachel January 25, 2009 at 12:21 AM  

Curling up in bed with a good book or magazine is just heavenly to me. In fact, I think I'll go do that right now. LOL Thanks for the chance to win!
