I LOVE TO GIVE

For those of you interested in my business....TREE DECORATING...when October rolls around and it will come all too soon....Sigh...I am going to share lots of "tree decorating" tips....along with pictures...hopefully give you some new ideas and even share some pictures of the trees and homes that I decorate.
Christmas in July. Not that I really like thinking about Christmas in July....If you read my blog from the beginning, you know that I decorate 60 plus houses for the holidays and many more trees than that,
as many of my clients have multiple trees....so "tree season" as we call it.....is a tad tiring, to say the least....but I love to give and this sounds like a fun way..

You can view the details here - check it out at ANGIE'S SPOT and join up. Sounds like a fun way to celebrate the summer.

Oh! A give away - sweet!

I wanted to let you know that I so enjoyed your stories on Parker and the whole Disney experience. It still brings a smile to my face.

and

After reading how you took your whole family I am now saving to take my (and my b/f's) kids to Disney. My parents have a house in Orlando.. so I can see why we cant do that!

We officially did Christmas in July the year my sister came home from her 2 year mission in Rome Italy.

I need to check this out.

I think it is amazing you decorate for so many at Christmas... I need to get to know you better. I get exhausted just doing my decorations I cannot imagine.

I can't believe you decorate that many places! Wow... I'm doing good to get my own done. (grin)

I love Christmas... I admit that I have new furniture as of the last several months, and I just looked around last night and wondered to myself, "Where am I going to fit our tree this Christmas?" In June!! Why am I even thinking about it?! No idea.

Lynn said...

What a fun thing to do!! I love Christmas but must say that now that I rarely spend Christmas at my own home I don't decorate or bake nearly as much as in the past. I ususally go to one of my kids homes because they have room for all of us and I don't since I am widowed and live alone. Last year I did more decorating again just for my own pleasure!

South Family said...

What a FUN job! I absolutely LOVE Christmas!! I can't wait to see some pictures!!

Lisa @ The Preacher's Wife said...
