Christmas in July

July is the month that I start planning for Christmas. Usually what happens is I start planning but nothing gets accomplished until December. This year I am turning over a new leaf. I am starting my shopping now and I am also starting my crafting now. I hope to have no stress during the month of December. I have some great ideas for gifts this year so I have a good feeling it will be a breeze! My first Christmas present purchase arrived today. It is for my sister and I think she is going to love it!

This year I want to have a Christmas tree with ornaments that are all handmade. This is quite a challenge but I think I can do it. I just gotta think of some handmade ornaments to make. I think I will make a bit more of these, like last year. I liked how they turned out. I also will need to start working on my popcorn chain WAY ahead of time. Those things are time consuming and I ate half the bag while making it so, note to self-purchase extra popcorn.

I wish I could share my present ideas but then I would spoil things for a few people. Well, I can share something...since my niece cannot read and all, I am going to start working on more felt play food for her. Of course I will have to spoil her with more than just felt food. Oh, and this year I am going to make homemade marshmallows. I say I am going to do if every year and never do. They are so yummy and it will give me an excuse to pop a few in my hot cocoa. Oh, can you tell that I am hot and want the fall and winter weather to arrive ASAP!! It was 105 degrees today and will remain 100+ ALL week long. Why, oh why, do I remain in Texas? Jeff has decided that he wants to go to med school now so maybe once he is done with that, in like 20 years, we can move somewhere nice and cool!

I did notice that my to do list at the beginning of this year has shrunk just a bit. So, I am heading in the right direction and progress is being made!
