The Etsy Cottage Style Street Team's summer promo is Christmas in July, and the heat and fires here in California make thoughts of winter holidays especially appealing. My heart goes out to all who have lost their homes, treasured keepsakes, and most tragically, loved ones. The inconveniences and complaints of everyday life are sharply put in their inconsequential places, and I am so grateful for my blessings. One of them is the freedom and means to pursue arts and crafts for business and personal satisfaction.
For some summer cheer, on or after July 25th, use search terms "christmas", "july", and "cssteam" on Etsy to see all of my team's Christmas in July creations! Or just click on the CIJ logo above. Above and below are previews of my own listings, Holly earrings, Early Frost earrings, Holiday Fern embroidered fabric, Batik Reindeer sandblasted tile, and Poinsettia mosaic tray:
