I have a confession. I sat down and read the entire Christmas in July Book Club selection, Bah, Humbug! last night in one sitting. It was a quick read for me and very cute...won't say anymore because my fellow CIJ celebrants are no doubt still reading.
The Orange Pom Bubbly was delicious - I had to substitute Cointreau for the Grand Marnier but they are both orange so it worked. I mixed 1/2 ounce Cointreau with 1 ounce of pomegranate juice and topped up a big wine glass with champagne. Cheers!
Today's craft was going to be a trial run of this Glitter Ornament.

I had to substitute a Mop and Glo product for the Pledge Floor Wax because I couldn't find that exact wax so I'm hoping it works. I say hoping because a return trip to Michael's still did not yield the glass ornaments that I need. In fact, the cashier I spoke to said that they would be putting out their Christmas in July displays next month (uh, doesn't that make it Christmas in August?). AC Moore also had nothing so I am on hold with the ornaments.
I have another craft up my sleeve, this Christmas Pudding ornament:

I have all the supplies for this one.
I'm off to enjoy White Christmas as our first movie of Christmas in July 2013; it's one of our absolute favorites.
