Handmade Circle Goes Hollywood!

Summer is a busy time at the box office, all the latest and greatest big budget movies are in full swing.  This years movies include super heroes, a talking teddy bear, and some "Magic" dancing.  
The Handmade Circle Team has been so busy with our Christmas In July sale we haven't had much time to take in the Summer Blockbusters, but I did manage to grab a few of these hardworking elves and ask them  to review some Christmas Movies.  Here are their Must See Christmas Movies:

Marie of Marees Treasures tells us,

I have a few that I won't miss, but the one I love the most is an old time classic with Loretta Young called the Christmas Dove.

  Shannon of A Moment In Paradise has this to say:

Not sure if this is technically a Christmas movie, more of a chick flick but it's set at Christmas time, called Love Actually. Cute movie and the little boy in it is adorable, not to mention Colin Firth and Hugh Grant ;)

   Kate of  Pieces Of Home recommends getting comfy for her pick!

 It's a wonderful life! The best movie Ever!! Get your PJs on, your hot chocolate, your popcorn, your pillow and blanky.... And a box of tissue and you are set! Nothing says Christmas like that movie says Christmas!

Jayne of Twiggy and Opal reviews some classics:

Its a wonderful life - because its a classic! Cannot go through the holiday season without watching it 2-3 times! and of course, Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer! My favorite animated holiday movie! I LOVE it!

Margaret of ArtForComfort can't pick just one!

I have two: 1) Best of All Time - It's A Wonderful Life - so perfect in every way.
2) The Christmas Story - cracked me up and still does.

Jenni Clark of  Hannah Mia seems to have a thing about elves...

My favorite Christmas movie is Elf... It is hilarious and fun to watch, it never gets old
Sharon Morgan of Artisticsouldesigns is rooting for the bad guy to turn good!

The original How The Grinch Stole Christmas! Everyone can catch the Christmas spirit, even the Grinch.

Holly from Holly's Homemade Goodies seems to enjoy the lighter side:

This is easy...A Christmas Story is my favorite Christmas movie with Elf being a close second. I love the part
 where Ralphie's mom makes him put on the bunny pj's his aunt sent him. "Your going to shoot your eye out, kid"
 Love it!

 Christa from Makin' it Mama is all about the Love:

my favorite Christmas movie is Love Actually, because love is all around :)
Hiedi from Little Momma Boutique has a fondness for the green fellow too:

we love how the grinch stole christmas and a christmas story. Every year they are a must in our house.

Mindy of DeeDee's Details is torn between two movies:

Either It's a wonderful life or Mr Krueger's Christmas
Amy of Lucary reviews Christmas's most loved but not your ordinary family...

My favorite Christmas movie is Christmas Vacation! The whole thing is so funny and watching all the Vacation movies 
with my parents and brother and sister, and now with my family...I'll watch that ANY time of year!

Kathy of Flowertown Originals tells us what movie tells us the "True" meaning of Christmas..........
My favorite Christmas movie has to be A Charlie Brown Christmas. I watched it every year when I was a kid. It came out the year I was born! Even now if I see that it's coming on, I have to watch it. Charlie Brown wants to know what Christmas is really all about and it takes a kid carrying a blanket to tell us the true meaning of Christmas. And 46 years later, we still need that reminder.
Coral of Toppytoppy  likes to watch a child outsmart two blundering robbers.

Home Alone.- cuz i can't get tired of hear my grandson laughing everytime he watches it!

Dora  of Chumaka tells us about a classic New York Movie:

Original Miracle on 34th Street, Just love everything about that movie and that it's in Black and White.

Karalee of Ifrogcrafts tells us about a classic, a miracle, and a reindeer:

I have 3: "White Christmas", "Miracle on 34th Street" - the original & "Prancer" 

As for me the Head Hag of Bags By Hags here is my favorite Christmas Movie, because it is full of talented folks offering great handmade items at a wonderful price!
