Celebrating Christmas in July with an Easy Little "How-to" for Making Snowmen

P1070701 I just finished making my very first snowman. He has been smiling at me from my desk for two days now! I can't help but smile back and return to what I am doing in a happier mood.

I must admit, I have become a fan of snowmen only recently, having been a collector of Santas for over 25 years. At first, I was quite offended as manufacturers began replacing my beloved Santas with snowmen as the collectible symbol of the season. (Snowman, of course, appeal to a wider audience).

More Christmas in July!

Sarah's Holiday Handmade Crusade challenge for July is to "save summer"!  But what I want to save for summer isn't ready to be saved yet!

Sarah is also sharing "long term projects" in her Christmas in July series, so  I decided to share a couple of my own "long term projects" as my entry for July! "Saving summer" will have to wait until August!

Mini Pinata Advent Calendar - Christmas in July

Only a little over four months left until December 1st  - so what better way to celebrate "Christmas In July" than to get started making your Advent Calendars!

July? Christmas?  Absolutely!  "Christmas in July" celebrations have been a much loved tradition in our family since Diane was about 5 years old.  On July 25th we would take a trip to a local Christmas shop so my children could pick out a special ornament to save and then put on the tree in December.
