MERRYCHRISTMAS! ~JULY

The Christmas "Debbie Downer" and "Twas the Night Before Christmas"

Image
Tomorrow while everyone in America who celebrates Christmas is opening their presents, I will be moping around staring at the unopened presents under the tree calling my name, "Julyyyyy, July, Julyyyyyyyy!"
The reason? My brother's health has taken a turn for the worst, he's basically been sleeping all day other than waking up to barf every once and a while. Poor kid. THE DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS! We can't even have our traditional Christmas Eve dinner tonight. We always do special things on Christmas Eve, like baking cookies, watching Christmas movies, and reading "The Night Before Christmas".
Speaking of "The Night Before Christmas", here it is for y'all to read it. Merry Christmas all! 
Oh and watch this video because not only are they fun to watch, they are sooooo good at what they do!



The Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

The Products of My Boredom

Image
So yesterday was only the first day of Christmas break and I'm already bored..... So bored that I went downstairs and rummaged around until I found my old beads and started making bracelets and for those of you who know me well enough, anything artsy I attempt turns into a disaster......
I'm actually pretty proud of my bracelets though, well at least two of them. The other two, not so much.
Here's they are!



So what do you think? Tell me which ones your favorite! Sorry, maybe you don't like any of them, but that's ok because I'm obviously not the most artsy person. Just keep your rude opinions to yourself please!

Sentence Story Contest!

Sorry for the double post, but I just have to get this out there! 
Anyway, as some of you might recognize, this is the Sentence Story that a number of us wrote! Thank you all who participated in that! So we only got so far, and I thought it would be fun to have a contest of who could wrap up the story the best. It is only open to you if you participated in writing the original story, so sorry about that, but it's only fair. But don't worry, I will start another one soon. All you have to do is write an ending that corresponds to the story and don't change anything that we have already written. The prize is a guest post on my blog (yaya) and if you want, you can start the first sentence of the new Sentence Story that I will be starting after this is over. I ask that if you participate, send your entry to julya.emmance@gmail.com by January 7, 2013 and good luck!  One request is that you would please type with correct grammar and mechanics because it is very annoying to read witho…
