I Love this month’s prompt! I think the things we surround ourselves with can say so much about our personalities, seasons of our lives, pop culture, and so much more. You can take this prompt in many different directions, but I wanted to document some of the things I wear.
A couple of years ago, by best friend in Nashville made the comment “You sure do wear a lot of hats now!” and that has stuck in my head ever since. I took this prompt as an opportunity to show my love of hats through the years.
Journaling reads- I like big hats and I cannot lie. Ever since I moved to FL, hats have been an integral part of my wardrobe.
I also wanted to document an extra special piece of jewelry my husband bought me for Mother’s Day.
Journaling reads- Jason surprised me with an early Mother’s Day gift, a charm necklace. It came with a bunch of tiny charms that I can switch out easily. It was a bit like putting clowns in a car, seeing how many we could fit in. I’m not a big jewlry person anymore, but this is so special and it’s so “me”. (Not too delicate and no dangly bits for me to break. I swear I’ve broken every piece of jewlry he’s ever given me, except my wedding ring) Mother’s Day is always a hard day for me and I love that he always does something to make it special.

Thanks for checking out my pages about Things! The other CT’s have rocked the prompt this month, as usual. I’d love to see more examples if you’ve made a Things project, so be sure to share in the comments.
Jen Johnson is originally from Nashville, but ran away to South Florida to marry a boy she met on the Internet. She has always been a memory keeper, but never realized it until she discovered digital scrapbooking in 2009. Now she loves to document her life in SoFlo with her husband, stepson, and cat, cleverly named Miss Kitty. Her biggest scrapbook is the “All About Jen” book. She worries that might sound narcissistic, but who else is more qualified to tell her story? She loves to travel, read, eat good food, and watch bad TV. She has a blog, hclappy scraps, where she writes about digiscrapping, minimalist Project Life, (step)motherhood, and her search for that ever-elusive “healthy lifestyle” everyone talks about. She says Y’all and Yonder a lot, loves run-on sentences, and finds it a bit awkward talking about herself in third person.
