Christmas in July is coming soon!!

180 days and counting until the Big Day!! Yay!! I am already very excited about it. If you know me personally or have ever read anything I've written, you probably already know that. Obviously, anyone who even has a Christmas blog and is writing on it in June must be a little goofy about the holidays!

The picture above sort of represents this post...the beginning, before any of the pretty stuff is done. This is the start of the fun!!

I am hoping to do as I did last year and post something every day during Christmas in July. However, you know what happens-life-and it may not always be my top priorty to post on my blog. But, I promise you I'll do my best!

I have a rough schedule of how things will go on a weekly basis, but don't be surprised or offended if I veer from the schedule at any given time! Also, since I didn't post all of my pictures last year, I'll be showing some Christmas 08 pictures from time to time. There'll be recipes, craft ideas, gift ideas and links to some great sites as well. I am also planning on telling the Christmas story, the real Christmas, story on Sundays.

Ginger over at Magical Holiday Home will have some great tips and ideas. Check out the discussion of week one here. She has some gooooddd stuff coming up.

So, check in often and stay tuned! The fun begins Wednesday with a brief explaination of what Christmas in July is all about!

Until then...

Merry, Merry!



  1. I'll be back to check in often! I am so behind that I haven't even looked at my Christmas blog. I started it just to share photos on the Holiday Home Tour here last year. I will get with it this week and try to post often during July.

  2. I decided I needed a focus for the month. So, I am off and run late, but determined to have the best CIJ ever.

    Be sure to stop by my blog for chances for my weekly giveaways during Christmas in July. The first drawing is at midnight tomorrow on July 1.


Thanks for visiting! Please leave me a message to say hi!
