Christmas in July|
It's Not to Early to Start Thinking About It
No kidding! December is so busy, more than one family has taken time
to celebrate their Christmas gift exchange in July. Travel plans, family
commitments and school schedules just make it easier. In the southern hemisphere, a touch of snow
can put anyone in the mood for Christmas.
For those of us who still celebrate in the 12th month
or deck the halls in the 11th, there are weeks and weeks ahead, but
the clock is ticking.

Independence Day Around the World|
United States Celebrates July 4th
In the United States, our Independence Day is coming up on July 4th.
For Americans, this is one of our grandest holidays of patriotic sentiment,
flag waving, picnics and fireworks. It's hard to believe that we won our
independence from England, a great friend of ours across the ocean. What a
difference a couple hundred years, or even decades can make.
But we have so many
international customers, I checked to see when a few of their independence days
are. In the month of June I found: Samoa, Argentina, Philippines, Iceland,
Egypt, Croatia, Slovenia, Madagascar, Somalia, and Mozambique. In July, Malawi,
Belgium, Peru and Slovakia will all recognize the pride of self-governing. This is just a tiny list, only covering two months of the year. Each has their
history to tell.
To all countries celebrating their liberty this summer, have a
safe and happy observance.

the artistic touch that makes your designs stand out from the others. But when
you're at a loss for the right flourish, check your own house. Broken jewelry,
nightgown lace, dried flowers or the beaded purse with a broken clasp can all
have new life on a scrapbook page. Need a different paper? Recycle a gift bag
or go casual with newspaper and grocery brown. Always remember, less is more.

A great idea that rivals professional greeting cards has arrived
from Dinotalk. Ornaments, paper and
frames come in naked white - free of any trimming - ready to be decorated with
your design cuts, embellishments and glitter. The extra fun comes when you add the sound of your own voice in a ten second message, frozen in time.
Imagine a familiar voice coming from the Christmas tree. It's bound
to give the Talking Ornament a place of honor, right next to the most precious kindergarten
pinecone. Loved ones who can't be home for the holidays get a moment of
closeness when they hear your distinctive tone come from a hand decorated card.
Or you could Dino-frame a special memory photo. Then compose and
save just the right message within the frame - one that only you could make up.
The naked frame is ready for your 4 x 6 print to be set off with original genius.
These are the kinds of gifts that mean the most, especially during
times of economic change. We want to give something real, something meaningful
and heartfelt. Dinotalk offers the beginning, and you have plenty of time to
