There's something about a winter Christmas that is SO MUCH more fun than a summer Christmas. We're all used to seeing Christmas movies, with snow, fire places roaring, cozy winter activities, baked goods and warm drinks... why not bring a little festive cheer to the Australian winter season, we say!!

It's also quite Hygge, to enjoy cozy festivities such as sharing a roast meal with friends, enjoying a mulled wine by the fire, having a Christmas movie marathon and snuggling up on the couch and wearing a cozy woollen jumper and socks! (You might want to add some Christmas in July festivities to your Hygge challenge and Cozy at Home #MyWashiGangJulySpread plans!) 

Prompts for your Christmas in July planner or journal spread. 

1. Create a Christmas in July spread. Pick a theme, such as, a colour palette, season, or style, or base your theme around an item/animal (such as pine trees, red florals, or winter animals). Pair your stickers and washi tapes to fit the theme! (Featured spread below, via @planwithmichele on Instagram)

2. Motivate yourself with fun, festive quotes. Practice your hand lettering or use all of the stickers

3. Make a Christmas in July bucket list, listing all of the festive and cozy activities that you'd like to do. (Don't forget to schedule them in!) 

4. Create a festive mood tracker. 

5. Practice your doodling. Set yourself a festive doodling challenge, ie winter animals, pine trees, snow flakes, reindeers, gifts and festive florals.
