How many times have you heard the phrase "Christmas in July!!" this month? Usually, by the end of July, I have heard it at least a dozen times. More often than not, it is associated with some "used car blow-out" or "mattress sale extravaganza!!" Just as I was thinking to myself that I haven't heard it much this year...I turned on the radio and heard Jingle Bells playing. Yep...the radio station was doing a whole weekend of Christmas music to celebrate Christmas in July.

I admit it...while I was driving around in my car all day in 100+ heat...the thoughts of Christmas and winter and cooler days were very enticing. So I listened. For about an hour. That is all I could handle. There is just something not right about listening to "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" while beads of sweat roll down your face.

Still, it got met thinking about Christmas and how awesome it would be if I were already working on homemade Christmas cards and gifts. Wouldn't it be nice to have everything DONE when the first of December rolled around?

My summer to-do lists are always a bit long and scary so I don't realistically see this happening for me. How about you? Want to get a head start on the holidays this year? is a bit of inspiration to get you started.

This week's challenge: scrap a Christmas card or Christmas-themed layout. Link back here by Thursday night for a chance to win a prize.

Merry Christmas!! You know...the July version. Facebook
