  • 'Twas Christmas in July: Diamond Art

    July is the perfect time of year to get some of your holiday projects finished early. It's a great excuse to escape the heat wave and sit in your air-conditioning. And it's the best time of year to use the downtime to make memories with your family. All the projects below utilize the Diamond Dotz Freestyle program and Diamond Arts Freestyle books.

    Everyone Was Diamond Dotting

    'Twas six months before Christmas and all through the house,
    everyone was dotting, except for the mouse;
    The Diamond Art projects were all laid out with care,
    in hopes that beautiful decorations soon would be theirs;
    The children were nestled all snug in their chairs
    While projects from Sparkle Holiday and Holiday books danced in their heads;

    And Ma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap,
    Had just arranged dots and canvases with patterns like a map,
    Then each of us chose a project with such excited clatter,
    We sprang from our chairs to pick the one that mattered.

    Ma chose a Merry Christmas cross as quick as a flash,
    The gold and the glitter were sure to make a splash.

    Junior always loved the new-fallen snow,
    So it was natural he grabbed the snowman box to give it a go;

    When what to Jill's wondering eyes did appear,
    As she shuffled through diamond dotting choices with cheer.
    With a little red hat, white beard and a smile, she knew pretty quick,
    What she wanted to do was to create a sparkly St. Nick.

    Hello Santa—Leisure Arts Diamond Art Powered by Diamond Dotz Diamond Dotting Holiday Book #7469

    He had a broad face and a little round belly,
    Jill did such a great job, as good as grape jelly.
    He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf,
    And I laughed with joy when I saw him for myself;

    More rapid than eagles our Little Johnny came,
    And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:
    "Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now Prancer and Vixen!
    On, Comet! on, Cupid! on, Donner and Blitzen!
    He loved Rudolph the most, because he was small.
    Now dot away! Dot away! Dot away all!"

    I watched my family with great pride and cheer,
    They had created a snowman, a cross, a Santa and a deer.

    These Diamond Art holiday projects are not only fun,
    They will bring great memories for years and years to come.
    The Diamond Dotz are sparkly, the designs are so merry!
    They'll look great on the wall, the table, or a tote that you carry.

    It was so nice to see the excitement and glow,
    I decided to dot an ornament that I could bestow;
    I searched and I searched and found it with glee,
    What I would create is a tree, to hang on a tree!

    Ma, Junior, Jill, and Little Johnny couldn't get enough, and neither will you,
    We're so glad we stocked up, and had more dotting to do.
    Ma chose an ornament, dainty and sparkly and blue.
    She liked it soooo much, she created twenty-two.

    A wink of my eye and a twist of my head
    Let the children know they didn't have to go to bed;
    They spoke not a word, but went straight to their work,
    And painted their stockings; then turned with a jerk,

    Stockings—Leisure Arts Diamond Art Powered by Diamond Dotz Diamond Dotting Holiday Book #7469

    "Look Daddy, look," they said with a shout,
    And giving a nod, they knew I was proud.

    I sprang to my feet, to my kids gave a whistle,
    And hung stockings on the wall, like a painting of a thistle.
    And I heard them exclaim, as they headed off to sleep—
    "Happy Christmas in July to all, and to all a good night!"
