Last month, my camera broke & I am unable to look thru the screen to see what I'm taking a picture of. I'm glad it still takes pictures!! This is super simple & it would be fun to do on 2 half up piggies also.
Start with 2 basic pig tails
Take a section from one side & braid it & secure to the other piggy with an elastic
Then take another (smaller than the braid) section from the opposite the braid is in
Twist the section so it is easier to wrap over the braid. Begin wrapping evenly until you get to the other side
Secure with an elastic on the opposite pony. Then we finished the ponies with messy buns
We are loving ribbon because we're not losing pairs like with the clips. But when I do messy buns - I do not love the look of wrapping a ribbon around the bun - it can look silly sometimes. So if you tie your bow then slide a bobby pin right in the middle - you then just push the bobby pin into the hair where you want placed.

Here's the front view - by the time I tried taking a couple of the back view - my camera had had it & I think the battery died (can't tell since the screen doesn't work:) Scroll back to the top of this post to see the back again!

Shutterfly Christmas/Holiday Cards

I know this has nothing to do with hair but I am so excited for Christmas this year! & I've already started thinking about Christmas Cards. I'm totally digging the bright colors this year. I plan on using a black & white photo with the bright colors, it just seems to make the words POP out. I always DS my own cards but this year, Shutterfly is giving 50 free Holiday cards to bloggers. That is an awesome deal! Especially if you are planning on getting cards, why not get them free? & it's super easy - you just have to upload your own photo. Much easier {& quicker} than having to come up with a design on your own (like when you DS them). Honestly, I've never used Shutterfly before but my sisters are often printing through them. They have done both books & CALENDARS & they all look really nice. So you don't only have to get cards from them. These are a couple of my favorite: I am totally digging the red & turquoise together! So fun!

& there's tons more. If you go HERE you can see what other Christmas cards they have. If you're want more HOLIDAY CARDS, they have those too.

They also have lots of other cute ideas, like Christmas labels. Go HERE to check them out. Isn't that such a fun idea? Check their website out, there's tons of fun Christmas gift ideas. But you can use them all year long, for any occassion!
