Peer Pressure

There is a large “Christmas in July” movement going on right now! Crafting gifts, making decorations, getting ready for the big day… oh, don’t act so coy, you know who you are!

Gina, at The Shabby Chic Cottage, has a 12 days of handmade Christmas in July party going on, and she is making some CUTE things, and has great decorating tips. Look what a cute package she made for a coffee gift card! Love it!
Tip Junkie is having Christmas in July, as well, with great tutorials and lots of giveaways!
Reading everyone’s posts about Christmas got me all excited, and made me feel a little bit left out, so I did what any girl would do. I got out my craft supplies. We’ve already planned out our decorating theme for Christmas this year, and one of our trees is going to have an asian theme to it. When I say “we” I mean me, and yes, I have more than one tree, but let’s move past that, shall we? For the asian themed tree, I bought cute Christmas paper, and made these fun little chinese lanterns.

    Just catching up on reading blogs today- You've been so crafty and busy! The chair is super cute as well as the topiary pots gracing your front door. And these little lanterns are adorable. I hope you guys are well – Blessings always!

    I stumbled upon your blog yesterday by clicking on \”Next Blog\”. It seemed so meaningful, fun, suspenseful and hopeful that I had to follow. I pray that your wait isn't long and is filled w/ meaningful moments. I have been following the \”Christmas in July\” blog-mania too and love your paper lanterns! I am invisioning halloween/Christmas/valentines/easter party favors or decorations. Thanks for the idea!-Audrey
