Home is Where You Plant Your Flower Seeds...

Hello Everyone!  Lynne here today with my second project for the month of July where our theme for the month is Home Sweet Home, and homes and where we live have been in my mind a lot lately as my hubby and I moved across provinces earlier this year into what we are calling our "Forever Home" as we prepare for retirement.  And this week my daughter and her family have finally been able to return to their home in Fort McMurray, Alberta, 86 days after the mandatory evacuation of their city due to an out-of-control wild fire.  So like I said, "What Does Home Mean to Me?" has been a question in my mind a LOT lately.  But it was reading this quote from the Susan Weckesser's What's UP Gnomey stamp set that finally put it all in perspective for me:

"A Home Is Where You Plant Your Flower Seeds"

And with those words echoing in my head as I sat at my work desk looking out at my beautiful new garden, I created this wee diorama that for me says it better than words ever could.

I used the Susan K. Weckesser Live in Color Paper Collection and my new Tim  Holtz Sizzix House Dies #660992 and #661196 to create the house,

and then I stamped and colored and fussy cut the Susan Weckesser/Unity stamp sets Create Your Day and Grandma's Needlepoint and used these to embellish and decorate my wee home.

Then I went a bit crazy adding anything and everything to my Garden... Who KNEW you could have this much fun with a glue gun? (smile).
Here is a photo of my garden which inspired me and a few more close ups of my project.  Now, if you would like to know more about my creative process you can find all that information over on My Blog.

Thank you for taking the time to visit us today at the My Sweet Earth blog and I hope my wee project has inspired you to create something that expresses what "Home Sweet Home" means for you.  Happy  Happy
