Christmas in July

I came home from vacation to a big stack of catalogs hoping to get me. I started going through them last night and got some good inspiration of things I want to make. The first one is a ribbon garland from Current:

I think you could make a really cute Halloween garland with the same idea, just dangle some chipboard pumpkins or something? I don't know but it got some ideas rolling. Then I saw these: What a cute way to package popcorn for your neighbors or something- it seems like the Target dollar spot always gets cute buckets that would be a good size for something like this. Anyways, I realized last year, that if I plan to get crafty for Christmas I need to start much earlier than December, like July I guess.

I really don't think it's ever too early to start thinking Christmas. It makes such happy thoughts!
