How to show Home folder in Finder Sidebar

greetings,
I have a new mac book pro running os x 10.7.3. I created a few folders/directories off my home directory. How can I get my home directory to show in my Finder Sidebar gui?

Currently, all I see are:

All My Files
AirDrop
Applications
Desktop
Documents
Downloads
Movies
Music
Pictures

I'd like to see my home folder so I can select it and then see all the folders in my home directory; like I can on my macbook running 10.6.

Any ideas?
Thanks,

Just drag the folder to the sidebar.

Thanks, but how do I find my home folder in the Finder? I open Finder and I do not see my home folder. That is my problem.

Cheers

Press CMD+SHIFT+H to enter your Home folder in Finder, then press CMD+ArrowUp to get into the Users folder, from there drag the folder of your choice to the Sidebar.
Your Home folder is located inside Macintosh HD / Users / .
