Christmas in July is one of my favourite promotions, not only because I have some ex-pat friends now living Down Under who celebrate Christmas in July, but also because Christmas (and December in general) is usually so hectic that making time for scrapping is tricky! I do enjoy catching up on recording Christmas and winter memories in the middle of summer when the pace of life is much slower! All my Christmas and Winter doodles are on sale at 30% off 24th-27th of July, as well as all the Document Your December products which include all theDoodled Pocket Page range of templates! Here’s a selection of the goodies on sale over the weekend:

World Cup fever has arrived at my house, despite the disappointing England results so far! Today’s new releases are there result of my passion for football and are also the last of my Custom Doodle Contest winning packs! There were so many great suggestions from the contest that although I’ve created doodles for all the official winners, I will also be working on lots of the other theme suggestions too so if you entered the contest, you may see your idea being doodled soon!
There’s a decided World Cup flavour to my What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday photos this week! It has been good to get back to some doodling after concentrating on some other projects for the past few weeks. Here’s what’s been on my desk this week:
- Football doodles
- promarkers and pitt pens (as always!)
- World Cup wall chart (my daughter and I are diligently filling in all the scores after every match – keeping my fingers crossed for a better England result on Thursday!)
- England deely boppers and flowery lei thing to (a) show support for our boys and (b) embarrass the male members of my family by doing (a)
The England paraphernalia even made a trip to Old Trafford earlier in the month to watch Soccer Aid: Come on England!

Apologies to those of you who were struggling to leave comments, since the latest wordpress update more comments seem to be getting caught in the spam filter, whether they are spam or not! I’m looking into the issue at the moment but I do check the comments every day so it shouldn’t take too long for me to approve your entry if the spam filter does grab it! Thanks to everyone who got in touch to let me know there was an issue.
