No Place Like Home

We are heading away from home for the holiday, and while part of me longs for the traditional Thanksgiving meal around our own table, my heart realizes that home is where your heart is. We are taking one last family vacation before my middle son goes off to college. I will miss the early morning turkey stuffing session and the yummy smells that are so much a part of this day of thanks, but I am ever so thankful for time spent with my family. It doesn’t hurt that we will be enjoying the creature comforts of a cruise either:-) I will admit to being such a lover of holidays, that I will still be cooking the traditional turkey dinner when we get back!
I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving and the blessings of family.
I’ll leave you with a page from my journal. Notice the napkin from a pizza place, you can find cool things to incorporate into your journal everywhere. The sketch was also done on a napkin and then adhered with gel medium. I will be taking my journal with me, so I won’t be without art while I am gone.
I would so love to come home and count your blessings among my own, so leave me a comment about what you are most thankful for this year.

P.S. I have put my etsy shop on vacation too, but will be offering free shipping on all originals the first week of December, so be sure to check back:-)
