Introducing Christmas in July 2012 - A Whole Month of Christmassy Goodness!

Christmas in July comin' up!

Christmas in July is here! Or almost here! Depends upon whether you celebrate one day or the whole month! Me? I am celebrating the whole month of course!

I am celebrating by beginning a series of projects I have on my MUST MAKE FOR CHRISTMAS list. Most of them have been there quite a while now, transfered from one year to the next. No more of that! July 2012 they are being revealed to the world!
