There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays…

It’s time for one of my favorite holiday traditions: theStudio’s annual Christmas Carol blog train! It’s always so fun to see what my fellow designers choose for their song and how they represent it in their kit. Links to their blogs are below my preview.

I have loved the song I chose since I first heard Perry Como’s version many, many years ago – followed some years later by the Carpenter’s. The words and sentiment of the song speak to my heart – “if you want to be happy in a million ways, for the holidays, you can’t beat home sweet home.” Christmas is easily my favorite holiday, filled with decorations and traditions – but most importantly, being surrounded by the people I love.

You can download my mini kit here (freebie link expired 1-4-2015). NOTE: I’ll be adding an expanded version of this to my stores soon.

Your Christmas song of choice does bring back memories of Perry Como and his smooth crooning style and There's No Place Like Home for the Holiday. Love the cabin, the gingerbread boy, and that curly-toed boot. Thank you for this kit and the loving memories. A Merry Christmas along with a prosperous New year 2015.
