Lori's "Christmas in Summer Link-Up!"


Welcome back everyone!! Yes, yes,....I know - we said we were closing down for the summer (and we still are - kinda LOL) but...one wonderful follower (Cindy Major) made a wonderful suggestion (thanks, Cindy - great idea!) and here it is:

Lori's "Christmas in Summer Link-Up!"

We are going to open up a linky for the summer months and let you all "catch up" on previous challenges you may have missed or want to do again and have fun! The link up starts NOW and will go until August 31 at noon! 

Those of us Merry Makers who are kickin' around and have some time this summer may come visit your makes and say HELLO and see how you're doing so be sure to link 'em up!! 

And now....for the grand finale....for those who link up projects over the summer, I will throw all names in a hat, and use Random.org to pick a winner and personally send a $10 Starbucks Gift Card to them - my treat!! :) 


Have fun, happy crafting and HAPPY CHRISTMAS IN SUMMER!! Cheers!
