Magnolia-licious January Blog Hop

Welcome to the first of our monthly Magnolia-licious Christmas Card Blog Hops. This group was created for Magnolia lovers who want to get a jump on the Christmas season by creating a Christmas card each month. If you are visiting this blog hop, I hope it will inspire you to get ahead of the holiday season and join us in our endeavor.

My name is Julie Glasgow. Here is a little history about where this blog hop came from. In 2008, November hit, then December, and I was scrambling to get my Christmas cards done. With all that is involved with the holidays, I really wished I had been on top of this earlier. So, in January 2009, I decided to start creating one Christmas card a month and posting it on my blog on the 25th of each month. I must admit, toward the end of the summer, with camping and school, I fell down on the job and missed a couple months. However, I still had a nice collection of Christmas cards and it really helped to be prepared come November. I decided I wanted to repeat this challenge for myself in 2010. Then, I had the idea to present the idea to the Magnolia-licious group and had a wonderful response. Deb was very supportive of the endeavor, and the Christmas All Year Long Blog Hop was born.

Here is the list of January players.

What a great time I have had organizing this blog hop. I feel like I am getting to know some of the Magnolia-licious members better, and have loved visiting each of their blogs and getting inspiration and ideas. They all did such a fabulous job. I can't wait for February 25th!
