Do You Know What Time It Is?

Had I still been working at the scrapbook store, July would have slapped me in the face and said, "Guess what is right around the corner...closer than you want it to be...closer than you think it is?"  But I'm not at the store so it kind of was a quieter realization, sneaking up on me like my cat does when she wants to attack a toy mouse...

...crouched close to the floor
...creeping forward slowly
...ears laid back against her head
...furry derrierre up in the air wiggling

And then...


There's the POUNCE!

And this is what happened. 

Here it is:

Christmas is coming.

What does that mean?  It means that had I still been working at the store, I would have already designed Christmas cards for a Christmas Cards in July class.  I would have pulled additional product for more of my own-style cards for the holiday season.  That would lead to planning.  I would realize that anything I want to make - handmade - for friends and family this year best get decided upon and started toot-sweet!  Planning would take place around how many scrapbook retreats I would have between "now" and "then".

But I'm not at the store.  And I didn't make Christmas Cards in July (yet).  But I did realize that Christmas is merely five months away as of next Monday. 

Yes, that's right.  Five... 5... months.  Only.  From next Monday. 

It's time to get my Holiday on!


  1. Nooooooooo. Step away from the Christmas card!!!

  2. Ugh. Something I need to start pondering!

  3. I CANNOT even go there with you, woman! It's over 100 degrees here and has been for sooo long! I'm melting, meeeeeelting! I don't even remember what winter is. :P


I love hearing what you have to say. Thank you for sharing yourself with me!
