    I recently bought a sewing machine and am making a quilt. Once finished with that I have some Christmas crafts on my mind!

    I guess you can make it as hard or easy as you want. This is my first quilt - so it is a VERY easy design. I'm actually using my 19 year old's old teeshirts! When in high school she was involved in a Self Defense program. The program has been running for 20 years and she has the third highest wins of all time. She got a teeshirt for each level accomplished. She has over 2500 wins and 49 teeshirts. I cut 14 inch squares from the fronts and backs of each shirt. The shirts are extremly colorful and the backs describe the level each shirt represents. I will post a photo when done!

    I haven't done much in the way of actual decorations but I went to my local Bath&Body Works (candles, room fragrances, and body care) and picked up a bunch of their refills for a scent diffuser. A lot of them are more autumn themed, but I did pick up a couple of Gingerbread scented ones I'm going to hold onto for after Thanksgiving. This year is going to be the first year I get a real tree in my bedroom. It's possibly going to be smaller than my fake tree but I'll get the genuine real tree smell!

    Yes, I've somewhat started. I always start to get the itch around this time of year (I know, it's early). I just can't help myself. I'm always looking for new Christmas decor and recipes. I bought a new ornament last month.

    Nobody here thinks July is too early! I bought a new ornament last month as well.
