Christmas is already stalking us…

Homemade Snowflake Garland Apparently, there was a little spurt of Christmas in July in the past few weeks. And, as Rachel explained, if you’re planning a handmade holiday this year, you do need to start early.. Well, I refuse to actually start on Christmas prior to Halloween (oh yes, at Dabbled we’ll be doing a month of Halloween fun again this year!) But for those of you who are planners, or just like to imagine cool weather in the heat of summer, here are a few Christmas in July (ok, it’s August) related goodies you should check out!

Crafting with Cat Hair has been doing a BUNCH of roundups of Christmas Related projects…check it out:
