Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas!


I bet you're thinking that I've totally lost my mind! I love Christmas and think about the holidays 365 days a year. In fact, I belong to a Christmas group that discusses holiday preparation throughout the year.

It is never too early to start making your Christmas gifts. After all, Christmas is an annual event and always on the same date each year so being prepared for it makes sense, right? I know, I know, you're thinking that it's too hot to even think about Christmas. Turn the a/c on high, put on your jacket and fuzzy slippers, turn on the Christmas music, light a Christmas candle, and start making your Christmas gifts today. Anything you make now will put you that much further ahead when the holiday's come along.

In between craft fair preparations, I plan to start making Christmas gift items. How about you?

I hope you all have a wonderful craft-filled day. Merry Christmas! (Sorry, I couldn't help myself!) *grin*

Aloha!

You are so cute Lettie - that stocking is a treasure - love it. I agree - now is the time to start thinking Christmas although it is 94 degrees in Texas today!!

The stocking is wonderful!! And yes, I am going to start making Christmas gifts during the summer. No way am I going to be making them on the 23rd of December, like last year!!
But turning up the a/c and putting on warm clothing? Uh uh -- not after waiting so long for some wonderful heat and humidity!

Yes, I do think you're made!! Christmas in June- aagh!! But you're quite right of course, now is the time to start making gifts (and I have to admit to have started making a Christmas quilt for decorating the house, so pots and kettles come to mind).

Love the stocking! As a gardener I too think of Christmas all summer long. I do some canning - jams, pickles and relishes make great gifts.

That is one cute Christmas stocking!

I don't think you are mad at all. Most of the craft shows I do are in November, so I am always working on Christmas items. As a matter of fact, my current project is snowman ornaments. Keep up the good work. Joyce in Iowa

Lettie, reading your entries each day is quite like opening a present. It's always a surprise but the theme remains true to the blog...polka dots!
