Christmas in July


I know for many of us, the temps outside are hot hot hot….but before you know it the leaves will be changing colors, temps will be dropping and the holidays will sneak up on us like they do every year!

I don’t know about you, but many of my friends and I love to make handmade gifts and goodies for our loved ones, teachers, neighbors and friends!

Every year I wait until the last minute to gather my ideas and supplies and start whipping up gifts all while having a panic attack that time is running out!

This year the brilliant minds of Cindy of Skip to My Lou, Rachel of a Southern Fairytale and Kelly of According to Kelly have joined forces and will be hosting a Handmade Holiday Christmas in July extravaganza!

They have gathered over 3 dozen amazing bloggers who will share their talents and inspire us for the holidays! If we get started now, by the time the holidays are here we can be sitting around the tree sipping hot cocoa and eliminating some of the stress.

Starting this Monday each blog will feature a different blogger, and a new project. Rachel will have all the YUMMY edible goodies, Kelly the crafty gift ideas and Cindy all the sewing ideas. *I will be posting a holiday recipe on Sunday July 25 at A Southern Fairytale {squeal}

They have “listed” all of bakers, crafters & sewers HERE and will be using the hashtag #handmadeholiday on Twitter.

EVERYONE can upload photos of their handmade gifts to their flickr group HERE.

With that said…I’m off to pull out my new KitchenAid Mixer and dust off my sewing machine. 🙂

Do you make homemade gifts for the holidays? I’d love to hear what your plans are and if you start early!!
