Christmas in July Blog Hop 7/22 – 7/25
Welcome to my first ever Memories in Tyme Christmas in July blog hop!!! After going to my first blog hop recently, I knew I needed to host my own hop this month for people to start to look at Christmas! The economy is hard right now, what better way to save money by making wonderful things for your friends and family instead of spending a ton of money you don’t have! Plus if you spend a bit of time and money each month, things will not be so hard at the end! Everyone has been working really hard on things this month, and we all hope you enjoy all the fun ideas we are sharing with you!!
If you are starting at my blog – make sure you start at the beginning at Lynda’s blog which is http://memoriesintyme.blogspot.com/. If you are coming from Kimmarie then you are in the right place…

Memories in Tyme
This is my project : I am doing something for kids in this one…I was thinking of how all the time they say I am bored or when can we eat or when can we open presents and the like and just drives parents and other people crazy at times…but they are fun…This ornament should not take more than 20 mins or so if you pre-make the flakes …I have done this in the past and the kids always love it! and you can do it too to decorate the windows or whatever …I just recommend you keep it out of the way of animals…the glitter and snow is toxic to them. I have had popcicles on hand for this project and use 4 stickes and make it simple…I use snow and glitter and mix it up and I put it in a flat box or plastic bin and then that is set to “dip” in for the flakes but first you should paint it white which I did with Acrylic paint and it dries fast approx 10 mins and then I paint glue on it…that way it don’t get so messy with the little ones…and then you “dip” it in the snow mixture and then when all set use fishing line to hang it up and double knot it.
Hope you enjoy the snowflake! I know it is pretty simple and childlike but it reminds you to have fun and spend time with family and not get all annoyed and that it takes a child to remind you what of the Christmas spirit…I have done this for Sunday School class and they had a blast with this…so enjoy! 🙂 See you back tomorrow for a present to give away!
