Planning ahead for Christmas in July

A favorite magazine from my collection
Just a quick little note to say I've been busy as a bee behind the scenes here in the Christmas kitchen.  I've been writing posts like crazy to schedule them ahead for Christmas in July.  We are going to have visiting family here for three weeks in parts of June and July, and I know I would never be able to post daily in July with all that will be going on.  So I'm preparing posts ahead of time -- everything from poems to vintage cards to crafts to recipes -- and I hope you will all enjoy them.  A lot of the posts will be links to ideas I've found through Pinterest, including some of my most frequently repinned items.  Stay tuned!


  1. Really looking forward to what you have!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Ian's Girl! Most of the things I'll be sharing are links to other people's ideas. I'm not feeling all that creative right now. But I hope you do enjoy the things I've posted about and find some creative inspiration from them!

  3. I'm sorry but the red background makes it hard to read your posts :(

    But I am doing like you!!! working on my cij posts and I want to Schedule the lot beforehand too because July is vacations and I know we will be away some days.

  4. Hmmm... the background is white as I look at it. Do you mean the light red/white stripe-y area? Just scroll up as you read the post and it will be totally white in the background ... at least it is for me.

    Good for you writing and scheduling those Christmas in July posts! I will look forward to reading them. I only have five left to write and schedule, so I'm nearly done.

    Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!

  5. Hello Mrs. T, so happy to find your blog and really looking forward to your Christmas in July posts. I'm doing a little posts prep work as well. Do you post over on the Magical Holiday Home forums?

  6. What would we do without Pinterest? Looking forward to your posts.

  7. Pamela, I am so happy to see you here! Welcome!!! So sorry that I did not find your unpublished comments until today but better late than never, right?

    I don't post at Magical Holiday Home, but I do post (mostly on the crafter's corner forum) at Our Home for the Holidays. Guess I should check out the magical holiday forums just for fun!

    And yes, Pinterest is great! Are you on there?


Thanks for visiting my Christmas kitchen! I love company here in my kitchen all year round, so please leave a comment so I'll know you visited. I will answer any questions and comments here on the blog, so be sure and check "notify me" to see replies. God bless your day!
