Joy To The World & Sinus Infections!

I am "stuck" in Cleveland with a sinus infection! The stuck is good since I am with Danny, but I don't have "my things"...if you know what I mean. I came here packed for a week of visiting, not with the intention of staying for 3-4 weeks! I am getting better, but still not ready to fly and at this point it doesn't make much sense to try to fly back and forth with the holidays coming so soon. Soooo...I am going to stay here until after the new year and at that time I will return to Illinois and pack for our official move to Cleveland!
I have lots of things to be thankful for this time of the year! One of them being that I had a layout published in the winter issue of Scrapbooking & Beyond!!! The layout I had published is of my family (another thing that I am very thankful for!!!) at Christmas last year.
I had plans to give my extra copy away, but I have had a massive change in my plans since I first planned this post! I apologize for that, but the extra copy is in Illinois and I am in Cleveland! I also had images added to Blogger to pre-do some posts while I was gone last week. Since I got sick that got delayed and then when I tried to do this post on our Ipad I lost the image of my layout. So here is a picture of the layout in the magazine. Sounds like a bit of bad luck...but maybe someone knew I wasn't going home and wouldn't have been able to mail the magazine out anyway!!!

If you love winter and Christmas and all that goes with it, I highly recommend you check out this issue. It is packed full of wonderful ideas and inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!
