For some people Christmas season doesn't start till the day after Thanksgiving, not me. Its starts here on July 25th. I officially celebrate the opening of Christmas season then. My Christmas season. Starting now I start to do my shopping, planning, creating etc etc. Its so much fun. Now I know that a lot of people will think thats strange, maybe even think I am crazy, but to them I say BAH HUMBUG! I need as much time to prepare as I can get.
I participated in a Christmas in July Swap and was partnered with Rhonda and she sent me the most wonderful package. I am so thrilled with everything. She made me a lovely apron, its so pretty, and big and roomy. I just love it and can't wait to wear it. She also made me a lovely little quilted basket and matching coasters. They are just so beautiful and so well made. The little basket was full of surprises, 6 different Christmas spools of ribbons. Also stamped Christmas tags, some that look like little shopping bags, so cute, also some beautiful Christmas cards and a crosstitch kit too. What a great swap it was and everything was decorated and wrapped so pretty. Thank you so much, Rhonda, you made my week.
