It is so nice to enjoy my morning coffee sitting outside on the patio listening to the pool waterfall trickling water. Our neighborhood is very quiet and the birds around us are very vocal but it is so peaceful. I like to start my day getting that all important coffee and writing down what I want to accomplish for the day.
My sister and I have always loved the Christmas in July crafting projects that have come along so we thought it would be a great break and have a Christmas in July Projects week.
I had a great time creating this Christmas Greeting Card and I made a total of 20 of them in preparation for this Christmas. Of course that is supposing I will remember them and where I put them come December. LOL Seems I always find a missed item sometime in January. Oops!
