Christmas in July ~ Recycled Style!!!

Hello and Happy Monday!!  

How was your weekend? I see everyone has been very busy making fabulous things!!! 

Last week, for me, was all about reorganizing, sorting and, as hard as it is, purging through all my craft supplies. I'm hoping to have it all wrapped up today, but it is 8 years of  stuff.  It's quite interesting to see how my taste has changed, since I began crafting back in 2006.  My DH was very helpful, he ran out and bought clear plastic bins, made labels for the bins, drawers, folders and moved the heavy stuff for me.  I'm looking forward to having this project completed, it feels so good to get things reorganized and to get rid of excess. 

Here are a couple of July Christmas cards.  I was inspired by seeing everyone else's fun July Christmas cards. They're made of all scraps and recycled Christmas cards.  You can't see it in the picture, but the poinsettias, are behind a clear, acetate window.  Recycle and reuse :):):) 

Hope you like them.

I've submitted them in the Craftin Desert Divas for our Christmas in JulyChallenge

Thank you for letting me know Lisa :):):)
