I'm going to put this up now because it's after midnight on the East Coast so most of you won't see this until the morning. I'm late getting to bed so no doubt I'll be scrambling in the morning!

So, how was your Christmas in July? Did you enjoy the themes? Did you try any new crafts or recipes, watch any new movies, read any Christmas books? Did you learn everything you could ever imagine about hygge? A huge thank you to everyone for participating, for sharing your memories, traditions, celebrations, favorite tips and tricks for the holidays, it's been SO MUCH FUN!

148 days until Christmas!

I'll just throw this out there - I loved Lucie's 25 days of Christmas ornaments and I'm strongly considering that for next year either on my blog or with all of you. If anyone else is thinking about it, don't forget to photograph your ornaments as you bring them out, put them on the tree, or put them away. You don't want to be digging them all out again next July! We could also do 25 days of Christmas and have 25 other decor items, not just ornaments, that would be fun to share. Just a couple of ideas to think about.

Pamela, thank you and Miss Jodee for organising this CIJ.. I have thoroughly enjoyed every day of it.
You have bought a little bit of Christmas into a bleak and cold month here.
I look forward to CIJ next year.

Thank you ladies for making CIJ on here very enjoyable! I missed a lot of CIJ shows on Hallmark and QVC. Hubby pulled his back and plus we have extended family move in with temporarily so that threw a monkey wrench into my plans. Did pick up a few Christmas Gifts and did get a jump start on some of the holiday cleaning. Not a complete loss.

I enjoyed the themes. It got me thinking about things and it was fun to read what others do. After not having the Hallmark Channel for 5 years, I did set up the DVR to record Christmas movies.

I've read, even if late (because of vacations). I loved it all. Thanks Pamela and MissJoDee. Glad you enjoyed my brief posts for CIJ.
