Christmas in July

Yum
I am a huge Christmas nut (take a gander at my Christmas tab above!) and yes, I love celebrating Christmas in any way I can!  Christmas in July is not a hard stretch of the imagination for me!  To get you interested in CIJ,  here are some wonderful crafty projects you might want to try now for your celebrations in December!

I think this will be the cocktail of the day.  Doesn't it look pretty and sound refreshing in these hot days of July?


For today's crafting fun, I love these labels.  I love plaid at Christmas, it is one of those things that it isn't Christmas without red and green plaid.  Do you have those must haves too?


And this jello treat is fantastic.  It looks fairly simple to make and I think it will make the perfect dessert to serve at a Christmas function!  With red and green cubes, of course!


I hope you find some wonderful items to try from our list today!  Christmas in July is a fun event, will any of you be celebrating?

  12. How can you not miss Christmas when the weather is so warm, right? It would be nice to cool down with some yummy Christmas treats. This is an awesome list and aside from making them this July, it would be nice to keep them so you have a list of awesomeness on Christmas!

    1. Yes, it is! In all reality, the Christmas in July is just my way of getting ready to think about what I need to do. Since my daughter is now grown, things are much less complex than they used to be.
