Michelle's still doing Christmas in July in August! You are all probably saying, what the heck does that mean? Well, since our State (California) is rising in numbers of cases of COVID, I didn't get to hold my "Christmas In July" Sunday Gathering, so I am extending the project and adding some more to my August Gathering, naming it "Christmas In August!" I would celebrate Christmas all year if I could get away with it! Unfortunately others in my family would not be too fond of that idea :). Speaking of Christmas and Holidays, the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Holiday issue) is live and available to the public on August 4th! Soon! There are some carryovers from last years Holiday Catalog, so if you loved something last year, but weren't able to buy it then, check to see if perhaps it is in the new Catalog. I like when they carryover some of the wonderful things - I get a second (or third or fourth - ha!) look and usually will purchase it! I was able to Pre-order some things to get my Christmas, Fall and Halloween projects started. That is an advantage of becoming a part of my team as a demonstrator!

In June, I did host a small group of my Sunday Craftin' Gals Gathering, and we had a Mystery Stamp session. I love how Sharon Armstrong holds these on Tuesdays. It is so fun to see all of the different ideas people come up with. I put together packets that contained all the papers needed - cut and scored. I had selected several sentiment stamps and several other stamps they would need! Water color pencils for coloring in stamps, and any embellishments they wanted. I read the directions to them and helped when I saw confusion on some faces. It is not easy if you have no idea how it is supposed to look, but that is the fun of...
