Home... cozy home...

I am a total homebody. I never liked spending the night out as a child, and one long vacation to the beach each year is good enough for me! I like to be home with all my children here with me. Weekend scrapbook trips are perfect getaways, but I'm always glad to be back home in my surroundings.
The house we are in now, we plan to stay in for a long while. There is lots to do and we plan to spread the big projects out over the years! I took a picture of our house this summer and really liked the way it turned out, so I sat it aside to scrap. When I got my November Studio Calico kit, I loved the papers and knew it would be perfect for my "home" LO. I am really trying to simplify my projects these days. I don't want to spend a bunch of time fretting over which button to use and where it should go, or deciding over papers, etc. I felt like I overcame my fear of "white space" in this LO. The layout is simple, but it works and I love it!

On another note, we have lots of snow here! It is beautiful, and our neighborhood looks like its been covered with a big, fluffy, white blanket! The kids played in it all afternoon and we are hoping for a snow day tomorrow to go sledding. The big Wrig (our yellow lab) has had random bursts of energy all day and playing in the snow with the kiddos has made him so happy (and certainly sleepy tonight!). Lovin' life in January 2010 so far...


  1. Beautiful!!!! Matthew and I had a blast in the snow today! He cracks me up!!

  2. Love this LO! This rocks! Enjoy your snow day!!!

  3. oooooooooooooh! gorgeous photo...lovely home...and BOY OH BOY am i diggin' this fabulous LO!!! ♥ maybe i can come and get some "white space" lessons?! (as in blank paper rather than an expanse of snow...can't stand the latter...which is why we chose the lovely NORTHEAST!) :)

    ps: happy 2010 (& it sounds like it is one, so far!) to all profumos, big and small! ♥
