Christmas In July Giveaway

Ho-Ho-Ho.  I'm dreaming of a White Christmas.  Dashing through the snow . . .  frankly anything cold will do right now.  I think that's where the whole Christmas in July thing came from - people were desperate for any distraction from the heat.

To help distract you from the heat in your neck of the woods I'll be giving away one of the upcoming Blue Plate Specials - you'll love it!


You'll have five chances to win - do any one of them or all of them to increase your chances.  That means if you do all five, you'll have five different comments here.  There is no requirement to do them all. 


  1. Leave a comment - the easiest way of all
  2. Like Apron Strings on Facebook and then leave another comment.  (If you already Like Apron Strings, you can leave a comment.) 
  3. Pass the word on to your scrappy friends and have them Like Apron Strings on Facebook.  Once you've posted the invite on your Facebook page, leave another comment.
  4. Come follow Apron Strings on Twitter.  Then tweet about the Christmas in July giveaway, like "Did you know @ApronStrings is celebrating Christmas in July - look here www.apronstringsdesigns.blogspot.com" then come back and leave another comment. Be sure to have @ApronStrings so I can see the Tweets!
  5. Follow this blog and then leave another comment.  (If you're already a follower you can leave a comment.)
Super simple and not a scrapbook layout in sight!  You'll have until July 30th to enter.

We've been keeping cool in the pool this year... but there is still 3 more months of summer ahead. Can't wait to see what the new Blue Plates are!

Lori, you can come visit us for some cold weather - we have lots of it at the moment. The temperatures in Canberra have been in the teens (50-60F)for the last few weeks, and only 6oC (42oF)last Sunday! I think we from down under created the Xmas in July since it's so NOT cold at Christmas time here and we get all these cards with snow, etc on them, so we thought we'd celebrate Xmas in the winter. I don't know if that's true, but who knows?

We've been hitting record temps for three weeks straight in Illinois. A little snow and cold weather sounds like a holiday right now!
