Christmas Countdown

Christmas Memories in My Heart is a place for me to share all things related to Christmas, which is my favorite time of the year. I plan and prepare for the holidays all year, so that I can enjoy that busy time without having to stress about shopping and all the details of the season.

I am actually able to decorate and then enjoy the spirit of the holidays and celebrate Jesus' birth and the reason for the season.

You can find links to my three favorite holiday sites in my sidebar. They are Organized Christmas, Our Home for the Holidays, and Magical Holiday Home. All three of these special places are like my home away from home. I have cyber friends there who I feel a great bond with and we share a common love of Christmas. We understand each other and support each other in our quest to have magical, wonderful holidays.

Please come back to visit often.

Week 2 Giveaway Winner is...

Aggy at Love of Christmas
is this week's winner of my Christmas in July Giveaway. She will receive this cute little silver colored metal mesh Santa sleigh. It is includes some body and bath items inside the shrink wrap.

Aggy, please email me your address so that I can get this on its way to you. After I drew your name it took me a minute to find you. (
I thought for a moment we had two Aggys, since when I clicked on your name in the comment, it brought up several blogs that aren't current. However, it was your precious dog's photo that I remembered. I had just been reading some of your posts from a link on my sidebar earlier tonight and the poochy caught my eye and heart. I see you have changed out to a new holiday blog this year. You might want to update your info on the Dashboard in case someone else is trying to locate you.

I feel like Santa or one of the elves! This is so much fun. It is a lot of work keeping track of all the people who comment all week plus the new followers.

I will post the giveaway item for Week 3 later in the morning. I want to make sure that people checking in see this one. I combined both last week and it was confusing to some. I have a great giveaway for some lucky someone next Wednesday.

Congratulations Aggy!
