LEON is NOEL spelled backwards. It means six months until Christmas. I can't even fathom the holiday season at this point in time since I'm deep in wedding planning mode for my daughter's August wedding, but I guess it's good to have a reminder that we are already halfway to Christmas!


I always mean to start my projects early and I know that many crafters actually participate in “Christmas in July” classes and workshops. Perhaps June 25th should be the official Christmas project kick-off day? I'm sure I will still procrastinate... not sure if it would feel like Christmas if I wasn’t burning the midnight oil trying to get everything done! LOL! Are you an early starter on Christmas projects or more of a wait until the last minute kind of person?
