Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

July Makes Me Think of....

Christmas!  I know! I know!  But, just visit your local Hobby Lobby (cue the hallelujah music) and you will see Christmas decorations everywhere.  It makes my heart pitter-patter a bit.  Last summer, I launched my photography business...and while I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to dedicate a lot of time and effort into that launch, it left me without one single Christmas present purchased in July. 

I'll let you in on a little secret that you might not know about me:  I like to finish my Christmas shopping by the start of school every year....except for last year.  With all of the wonderful last minute family photo shoots for clients, custom designed Christmas cards, and print orders, I was swamped and purchased my last Christmas present for my family the week of Christmas.  I know, like most normal people do....or like my hubby does!  But, it stressed me out!

So, chalking it up to memory, I've got some Christmas shopping and crafting to do.  Anyone else with me?  Did you stop reading my blog on the first sighting of the word "Christmas" in my first sentence?  Hello???? Anyone still reading this?

So, visions of sugar plums are dancing in my head especially after my dad brought home the Christmas Snow-Girl blanket I made my for Grandmother so many years ago.  Back before I was teaching school, I had lots of time to craft and bake....and you know, cook dinner!  Ha!  I'm going to try to make a few weeks worth of meals before the crazy routine of school begins again in August. That is on my To-Do list too.

Anyway, back to Christmas. Does July make you want to get started too?  Any fabulous ideas you want to share with me?  I better run, my Gooseberry Patch Christmas books are calling....I better get them dusted off and get crackin!

Have fun with your Christmas projects! I saw the Michael's ad in the newspaper yesterday had some project ideas. I hoped to make some Christmas gifts this year but I don't even know what! I am not much of a crafty person!
