Where on earth did July go? Tomorrow signals the first day of August and five months before Christmas. In 8 weeks time, the stores will start loading up on Christmas gifts and that all too familiar Christmas song loop will start to raise its ugly head on every aisle at your local supermarket. I am determined for Christmas shopping not to scare the wits out of me this year.
I'm happy to report that I have done extremely well this week thanks to the amazing local talents of 5 Star, Baby and Bob and Mabel. They had a fantastic sale on Wednesday and I went a little nuts buying handmade Christmas gifts for our challenge this week. Here's just a few of them...
Gorgeous hair clips and ties for all the little girls in our extended family
Beautiful fabric pencil cases to add to my girls Christmas stockings.
There is a fabulous Christmas in July crafty corner going on here which has loads of crafting ideas that would kick start the most dormant of Christmas spirits. If Christmas Crafting is not your thing, you could try getting inspired by yule critters over here.
