When I think of warmth and happiness....I think of home. No matter what, home is always cozy and safe and more importantly, home is where my family is. My mom, sisters, aunt Terri and I love to create festive crafts. We would all quit our jobs and open up a gift shop if we could. Maybe we are old souls...but we'd rather sit around and scrapbook, sew, paint and craft all day long than almost anything else. We love to get together and bake too. I wish there were more hours in the day to do all I want to do with them. We all have our own dreams....but it's so nice to have dreams in common, too.
Every fall, we convert one of our garages into a holiday gift shop, called Home Sweet Home. It's a lot of work, but so much fun. I love sitting and sipping coffee and spending time with all of them. Along with all of our crafty creations, we also sell baked goods. We provide free hot cocoa or coffee to all of our shoppers and take a lot of pride in our gift wrapping. It's the happiest time of the year!
Here are some pictures of Home Sweet Home from this year.
