Christmas Trees...

doodles & blooms

I'm really interested in all the Christmas trees out there in Blogland. What kind do you have? How many do you have?

I've been to homes on tour that had a tree in every room, differently decorated. It was amazing.
I've seen Charlie Brown trees,

reindeer trees, tall tree, skinny trees, wide trees, and flocked trees. I think they are all beautiful!
Tis the season, right?

Beautiful, flocked Christmas tree. Love, love, love it! Also love those wall sconces! WOW.

I have two that is holding my angel ornament collection the other that hold everything else. Mostly it's where the annual shot of my children are hung. It's so much fun to see and remember them at those stages. Since they are older, there is quite a collection. I've also added "just for fun" ornaments...they always make me smile too.

Let me know about your Christmas trees!

Wrapping Up...

Are you "wrapping-up" your Christmas buying? I am too, almost finished but I wanted to stop for a minute and show you a really neat idea. I found it on Pinterest at this site.
All you need is a brown paper lunch sack, jute, and your cover.
Quick, Easy, Neat.

I found the "Joy" at Graphics Fairy and printed out the size I needed. With a dip in really strong coffee, the paper was exactly the aged looked needed.
See...easy and very cute!
Ho, Ho, Ho!
Merry Christmas!

I'm such a cry baby...

Yes, I admit it, I'm very tenderhearted.
I cry at the drop of a hat, really.
I tear up when I'm holding babies, or while listening to beautiful music,
or during movies {yep, even some commercials.}
I get teary-eyed when my college aged son texts me or my married son calls "just because."
I get misty-eyed while listening to my mother play the organ at church or
my husband belting out in his amazing tenor voice.
Are you getting the picture?

Is anyone else like this out there in blogland?

If so, I thought I'd share a really great waterproof eye makeup.
It stays on through all my teary-eye sessions - no kidding.

Today was a true test:
my husband and I sing in our church choir and the music today was beautiful and powerful.
When the orchestra played and the organist pulled out all the stops...well...the tears just begin falling - uncontrollably.
I'll bet I teared up through 8 songs.
I had visions of black streamers running down my face and of this striped face projected on the large screen monitors. ugh...was this waterproof makeup working? I sure hoped so.
After the first service I checked the mirror backstage and thankfully my new acquisition worked...
no streaks, no black stripes, no puffy eyes.

Now, I don't have advertisers on my blog, but if I did, I would definitely promote Mally products. They are amazing! Truly, they do NOT come off until you take them off.
And it comes off easily with regular face cleanser!

Guess where I accidentally found these amazing products?
You know...that famous place that has everything you "need" and never knew you did?

So after a really long day
as I sit typing this post,
my makeup is still on and looks good as new.

If you happen to try it, let me know what you think.
As for me? I'm sold.
{I have the eyeshadow, liner, and mascara.}
