Oh, July: time to be with family, relax by the pool and sip fresh lemonade on the porch….all while planning your holiday gifts, right? I’ve always been a fan of Christmas in July: as a kid, I wore our VHS tape of A Christmas Story out in the summertime…the holidays seemed so far away!
But as crafty people, we know that we better get started soon if we’ve got handmade gifts to make on our list this year.
And now is the perfect time to do that: we’re celebrating Christmas in July site-wide this weekend! All of your advance planning will be rewarded two-fold: spend $20 and save $5, spend $30 and save $10 or spend $40 and save $15…plus you might just be done in time for Christmas this year!
