Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

All I want for Christmas…

Is a new camera! So I can take some decent pics for crying out loud! HA! No but seriously… (talking to you boyfriend)

Anyways….it is Christmas in the PLL house.

I got a little crafty the other night and did a little pinterest project. It’s always iffy with pinterest-you just never know which way it’s gonna go…BUT this time it was a success!

I turned a bunch of old wine corks into a Christmas card holder! Cute right?

It was super easy-I just gathered some wine corks (yes…I have that many laying around)

hot glued them all together in a row, and then hot glued them on a yard stick! I added a big ole bow and hung from the wall.

Boom. Christmas-fied.  It’s perfect for all these beautiful Christmas cards! So blessed, feeling so loved!

 I stuck the cards to the corks with these Christmas themed push pins I found at Michael’s. In the words of Elle Woods they were too perfect for words!!

In other Christmas decor,  I swiped this little tree form (get this) Kroger’s! $3.

 These are a few of my favorite ornaments. Born to blog, and a pug. Pretty predictable.

 I have been really excited to show you all these pillows! How cute are they?? They came from (your favorite and mine) Jane!! I am obsessed, I love that they are Christmas themed, but not overly green and red, know what I mean? Love love them.

 Sadie does too…

 And I am finally getting some presents under the tree.

Luckily I found this pug paper 😉

And in all my free time (ha!) I have been getting thank you cards out for all of the orders we have been getting recently over at the PinkLouLou Design Studio Boutique! Totally overwhelmed and thankful!

Hoping everyone is having a great week leading up to Christmas! It is going to be here before we know it!

    Hi Alison. I don't have a blog but have been following yours for a while now. Love love you! Just wanted you to know that there is a headband very similar to the Carrie one you loved on veryjane today. I know you shop it too but didn't want it to be sold out when you checked. 🙂

  3. Tiffany says:

    Love your décor. Love, love, love. And seriously, the wine cork Christmas Card holder is perfect! Way to go!

  4. Love all your decor, and I hear ya on the camera thing. Even when I use my actual camera instead of my iPhone to take pics, the quality is not great. So, it's definitely time in the words of Beyonce to upgrade 🙂

  5. I have quite a few wine corks laying around……that is a great project! Your tree is adorable!
