Home is where my heart is!!

It has been so busy already this holiday season!! I am looking forward to being home tonight. I have so much that needs to be done! But, I am not going to stress about it all. It will get done one way or another. The honest truth is, my heart longs to be home. I love making our home cozy and comfortable. I love cooking dinner and baking cookies. I love crafting. Home is definitely where my heart is!!
Whoo hoo, there are only 10 days until Heidi comes home and 20 days until Beth and Matt are due to arrive!! I can't wait. I need to make an advent chain to mark the days just for fun!! It would certainly add to my excitement-although I am already so excited I can hardly contain myself. I am like a little kid waiting for the man in red myself. lol!!

Just like I promised here is my So Sketchy layout for the 30th of November. I have so enjoyed designing for Allison!! Her sketches are the Bomb!! I hope you get some time to try out one of her sketches!! You will be glad you did!!

I just loved this sketch with the circles and woven strips. I think Basic Grey Urban Prairie is one of my all time favorite lines of paper. So fun and playful! I just had to use pictures of my daughter with this line. I just can't believe she is going to be 21 in February. Like the layout says, the transformation took place- In the Blink of an Eye! What wonderful memories and thoughts this layout carries!! This is probably one of my favorite layouts of the year!!

I also have a card to post that I made for Color Me Daisy. I just love the CMD December kit!! There are so many possibilities!!! I used My Mind's Eye, Imaginisce, and October Afternoon papers for this card!! The snowman is just too cute! As you can see, I loved him so much, I had to use him for my blog title!

Rejoicing in the Lord always,

Hi Kristii! I love your latest scrappy projects! That card is just adorable, and your page of your daughter is stunning! 21, huh? wowzers!
I can so relate to your just wanting to be home. I am feeling that more and more lately. I used to need to get out of the house, but I'm perfectly content here now. :)
