Christmas in July Day 26

Posted 07-26-2008 at 03:09 PM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Today is Day 26....WOW...July is almost over! We have had a lot of fun with our month long Christmas in July and it's not over yet!

Today through the 31st of July members at Magical Holiday Home will be working on a recipe project...to organize recipes for the holiday season and well....just recipes in general. If you are interested in printing a binder cover and dividers for a Christmas Recipe Notebook....you can check it out

HERE




That is a sample of the notebook cover you can print. There are also lots of divider pages to print and use to get those recipes organized!!

So why not work on recipes with us the rest of the month...it's time to get them in shape for fall and winter!!

Ho Ho Ho...this has been such a busy day I almost forgot to blog.

Crafted and Chatted almost all day...what fun!

The Magic Elves chat was full of super ideas...I'm going to make the elves their own little blanket!! Using fleece!

I finished a Post it Note Stand for one of Kelsey's Surviving the First 30 Days of College gift box! It turned out cute ..these would make nice team or college basket gifts done up in school colors with the logo...cut it out for free from one of their flyers...goodness knows I get plenty!!! i made it in about 20 minutes!!!

Well I'm still chatting so I'll check in tomorrow!!

Christmas in July Day 23

Posted 07-23-2008 at 06:02 PM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Happy Day 23....It's passing by so quickly!

Today I spent some time looking at Holiday Cleaning/Prep plans and trying to decide which ones to use this year.

I bought some dividers and a new notebook for the plan and hope to get it together and take pictures of the set up so I can share them with you!

Finally managed to watch Elf today...that is such a funny movie. I love his kid like qualities and how he gets so much enjoyment out of the small things in life!

Friday will be a BIG DAY...Christmas in July...the day!!! I have lots planned for that day and hope to enjoy it fully...Hope you do too!!!

Christmas in July Day 22

Posted 07-22-2008 at 10:32 AM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Day 22 and over at MHH we are talking Theme Parties in our Second Christmas in July Give Away thread.

ConnieChristmas suggested a

Let It Snow Party

I have a pretty good snowman collection going. So I decorate with my snowmen every where. Little white twinkle lights all about. Hanging snowflakes all over the place. My tablecloth would be silver and decorate with snowflake ornaments and centerpiece with silver candles. I think an old sled decorated with lights leaned in the corner some where or in the entryway! (Turn down the heat so the air would be a little chilly!)

Menu for Soup Supper -

Sleigh Ride Stew - White Chili
Tummy Warmer Potato Soup
White Snowflake Dinner Rolls
Hot Chocolate and Eggnog
Snowmen and snowflake Cookie Platter
White Chocolate Mousse Trifle

I would have and activiy table to cutting papers snowflake. And a prize for the one voted best!

Christmas in July Day 20

Posted 07-20-2008 at 06:04 PM by Gingerbug (Seasonal Celebrations)

Ho Ho Ho it's Day 20...and there's still lots of list to check and things to do!!

Today I opened some new threads at MHH for this week of Christmas in July. We will be watching ELF this week and discussing it over at the boards.

We are also going to be sharing ideas for good sites to order Christmas gifts! I personally LOVE online shopping...save a few gifts for the holiday season...so I can still get a taste of the hustle and bustle but no mad dashes through stores for me.

Our second virtual crop will be on Friday ...it's Rudolph Day...and we will be working on crafts off and on all day...checking in when we can to report on our progress. Our Craft of the Week is Christmas Cards!!! But during the virtual crop people can work on whatever project they want.

Well....more tomorrow!!!
