Christmas in July

I've never understood why it's Christmas in July and not June. Wouldn't it make more sense to be at the six-month mark? Either way, I'm getting really excited for Christmas - despite some anxious feelings at how quickly this year seems to be moving. There are few things I love more than decorating for the 25th of December and this year my excitement is heightened now that I have the resources to create a bokeh with my DSLR.

I got to practicing a few weeks ago making a homemade lens cover with a heart cutout via this tutorial. There's definitely room for improvement, but the initial shots are quite lovely if I do say so myself. I can't wait to try some other shapes like stars, circles and maybe even some seasonal words (i.e. "joy" or  "noel"). And then there's garland to be made. Lots and lots of Christmas garland.
