Christmas has always been my favorite holiday, so “Christmas in July” is a trend I can readily embrace! Today’s featured author makes fun little critters that she gives away (and sells), but her string angels make wonderful Christmas gifts, as well as the perfect Christmas-themed swag! Instructions for making these cute angels can be found at http://www.craftelf.com/Craft_elf_holiday_Christmas_angel_ornaments_&_pins.htm
I asked Mysti to share some of the ornaments she’s made, and she readily complied:

Here’s the blurb:
After losing her husband and only child to the ravages of the Civil War, twenty-five-year-old Portia McAllister is drowning in grief. When she sees an ad for a live-in tutor in another town, she leaves everything behind in hopes of making a fresh start. But as a Confederate widow in a Union household, she is met with resentment from her new charge and her employer, war veteran Beau Stanford.
Despite their differences, she and Beau find common ground and the stirrings of a second chance at love—until his late wife’s cousin, Lydia, arrives with her sights set on him. Burdened with a farm on the brink of bankruptcy, Beau is tempted by Lydia’s hefty dowry, though Portia has captured his heart.
In another time and another place, his choice would be easy. But love seems impossible amid the simmering chaos of Reconstruction that could boil over at any moment into an all-out battle for survival. Will Beau and Portia find their way into each other’s arms, or will they be swept away by raging forces beyond their control?
