Did Someone Say Christmas in July?

It’s hot, you’re sweaty and longing for some relief from the heat. Aren’t you? And while thinking about winter, you’re probably also dreaming of all those snowy nights of Christmas celebrations? Well well, you can’t actually change the season now, but the closest you can get to doing so is reduce the time left for Christmas and celebrate it now, in July.

An unofficial holiday, Christmas in July imitates the festivities of the actual Christmas and signifies our yearning for the coolness of winter amid the scorching summer months.

In addition, there are a few reasons why people celebrate Christmas in July. Which one fits you?

    • People want an excuse to celebrate
    • Some people start holiday shopping early
    • It’s winter somewhere

For me, it’s to start holiday thinking and maybe shopping.  Since I keep myself busy I really need to take the month of July and plan, plan, plan.

Lucky for me one of my favorite TV channels – Hallmark – helps me. I can sit in my craft room or family room watch Christmas movies and craft my heart away.

I will be posting Christmas projects (cards, gift tags, packaging, gift ideas) from July 22 – July 28 so please stop back often.

Happy Stamping!

It’s About Handmade Cards!

As we move into fall, winter, and the holidays I have been thinking about the busyness to come but making sure I stay grateful for the opportunities before me.  I am very thankful for the fun and friends I have made through my crafting, especially my fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators who are always there to share creating ideas and laughs.

From November 3 – 11 I spent time with my fellow demonstrators in Orlando, Florida.  Stampin’ Up! was celebrating their 30th Anniversary with a big celebration from November 8 – 10 so you can look forward to some new ideas coming your way.

Thanks to friendships made through Stampin’ Up!  I celebrated my birthday (November 4) with two friends, Lisa Wellman and Mary Haugen, at all four Disney Parks.  They have agreed to make my birthday the 4-Park Challenge day.  Our goal was to have fun, enjoy life, and be kids for a day.  Believe me, we accomplished our mission – I have the pictures to prove it!  Here’s just a sample.

My reflections in this post made me think about a keynote delivered on January 31, 2015 at the Stampin’ Up! Leadership Convention in Orlando by Jason Wright.  He discusses the long lost art of handwritten letters and cards.  I know the video (link below) is long (just under an hour) but it so worth the time.

I have now been inspired to start a Make A Card, Send A Card program.  You might be surprised that I have amassed a vast quantity of unsent cards – sometimes because I am too fond of the creations to part with them and sometimes I simply like creating and make way too many!!

If you would like to receive a special unsent card, please email me (rnittistamping@hotmail.com) your information (name and address) and I would be happy to send you one!

Happy Stamping!
