Hello fellow teammates. Happy Fourth Of July! Hope you and yours celebrate our nation’s birthday safely this year. And please remember too that while we celebrate, we still have men and women all over the world in our armed forces. Make a special place in your heart for them, will you?
Obviously July Fourth is the American biggie of holidays this month. Plus Etsy is gearing up for the Christmas in July sale for our shops. And the Olympics will start on July 27 in London.
But other than that, what else might we find some inspiration for unique themes in our treasury making?
Celebrating all month long, July is ANTI-BOREDOM month and I think that should satisfy everyone. With summer pleasures abounding, unless in excessive heat, this favorite summer month should not include anything boring! With that said, it is both national Picnic month and Recreation month. Plus we have another month of delicious foods but Baked Beans, Blueberries, Ho Dogs and Ice Cream are celebrated all month long.
Here are some more possibilities and again, I do have to wonder sometimes how they come up with this stuff!
