Christmas in July Day 11

Posted 07-11-2008 at 06:44 AM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Woohoo...it's the 11th day!!! Thinking about Christmas everyday sure has put me in the spirit...Here are my plans for today:.

I plan on working on some lists, trying out a new cookie recipe...have to test it before the Christmas Tea Party...gathering supplies for the post it notes project, and posting on my Rudolph Day blog...not a lot but a little...and each tiny step takes me closer to Christmas...

Yesterday I ordered some books off of the Christian book site....if you have not checked it out be sure and hop over...they are having a wonderful Christmas in July book sale...on the right hand side of the screen you can even pick whether you want items under 2 dollars, under 3 dollars and so on...easy way to sort so you can find some inexpensive stocking stuffers...they have more than books too...they have CDs, DVDs, ornaments, and decor items.

There are more and mores sites having July sales so hop around to your favorite ones and see whats up....

Christmas in July Day 8

Posted 07-08-2008 at 07:17 AM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Let's hear a bit from MHH members first today. As part of the Christmas in July Giveaway...they are to post some favorite memories or stories involving ornaments:

From Magnolia:

My absolute favorite ornaments are plastic canvas candy canes that my Mom made.

When she died, my Dad didn't share any of the Christmas ornaments with us girls. Since it was Mom's favorite holiday and she always went all out for it, that hurt so much. But I do have those candy canes that she made for me one year shortly after I left home, and I absolutely treasure them now.

From Dreamer:

My favorite christmas ornament is the chrocheted mini stocking my Gram made for me when I was born, every year she put a dollar into it with the deal that when I married and moved out I was to use that money to buy our very first christmas ornaments together. 18 years ago DH and I took Gram with us when we went Christmas Ornament shopping and we still hang

Christmas in July Day 7

Posted 07-07-2008 at 06:29 AM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

We are having a Christmas in July Give Away over at Magical Holiday Home....the way to enter is to post about your favorite ornament or a story about an ornament. Then on Saturday I'll draw a name randomly to win a "surprise"...and mail it to the lucky winner!!

This week I have high hopes for actually marking things off the list...hohohoho...do I sound like a broken record. Well I am sooo committed to getting stuff done that I am limiting my computer time...so my hour this morning is almost up! Don't worry I will be back for an hour this afternoon also and then evening...gosh who knows!! It will be my little reward for actually DOING something!!!

Here's the plan:
  • Recipes: I am on the last book from the library and then I can return the three recipe books!!!
  • Baking Plans: I am going to fill in that baking planner today if I have to just make something up....LOL
  • Menus: Making progress here as you can see from yesterday's post...still a few more
