"Christmas in July" Nebraska Style!

My dear friend, Tammy, and I did a Christmas in July swap. Her package arrived Friday from Nebraska filled with goodies! On the front was the cutest stamp that she had stamped. Inside everything was nestled in Christmas tissue paper. What treasures I received! Let me just say that Tammy is one of the most creative and talented people I know! She amazes me with her creativity!

Tammy sent me 2 sheets of stickers (I'll have to hide these from the boys!), a photo frame that she had decorated with ribbon and put 'JOY' in the frame (how cute!), a bar of Snow Angel soap (handmade and smells so good), the most adorable gift tags with a jingle bell and candy cane attached (I just love these and they will be used over and over!!), and a set of crisscross coasters made from Christmas material that I am sure Tammy made. Thank you so much Tammy! I absolutely loved everything!! You made my day!
Aren't these name tags cute! What a cute idea for a gift for a co-worker or to be used year after year (like I intend to do!)

These are the sweetest little coasters. You can find a tutorial here to make these.

And, I love this frame! It may just have to stay out all year. We all need to be reminded to have joy in our lives every day!!

Thank you again Tammy! You are truly a special person!!


  1. I love the name tags Tammy made with her Cricut!
    I still want one, maybe soon I will get one too.

    Nice swap!

  2. Susan you are way too generous with your praise, but I'm so glad you liked the things I sent! I left room on the tags for you to add "from" someone, but I love that you will use them year after year. :o)


Thank you for leaving a comment!
