Christmas thoughts in July

I hope everyone had a good 4th of July weekend(for those readers in the US). Hard to believe we are half way through the year already. Before we know it, we will be putting out pumpkins and stocking up on candy for ghosts and goblins. I have already started thinking about Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas ideas. Guess this is where the expression "Christmas in July" comes from. For those of us in the crafty world, we start thinking way before the season comes. Although I'm glad craft stores start putting their holiday stuff out early, I'm still not ready to see Christmas stuff in them. Fall stuff I'm okay with, but Christmas is still a little early, especially when I saw it long before the 4th of July weekend.

I joined an Etsy team all about setting goals, so between that and posting them here, hopefully you will all keep me on track. I want to have 75 items in my shop before Sept. 1! Lofty goal since I have 17 now. I'm hoping to get a few photo cards designed and put in there. Right now I'm also working on sample invitations for my sisters wedding, so that may be a new venture for me. I will also be making dates with my sewing machine. I want to get some pillow case shirts and dresses made and also some "American Girl" clothes made. The doll clothes I make fit any 18 inch doll, so just because you don't have or know someone with an actual "American Girl" Doll, don't be deterred from looking. Audrey doesn't have an actual "AG" doll, but the clothes fit perfect.

 Cute skirt with top outfit and a matching headband.

Love the pillowcase dress. Audrey has some of her own and I can't wait to make matching ones for her and her doll.

What girl doesn't need a cute pair of pants and shirt.
