Yesterday I headed into town with Nancy and my sister. A Friday afternoon in December isn't the best time to go shopping, especially with the buggy so we stayed up around the Grand Parade area. Between the tasty food stalls (you gotta try the hot apple punch at Barracuda), the ferris wheel and Bishop Lucey Park transformed into a magical fairy village we had one of those rare, relaxed leading-up-to-Christmas days. We even made a glittery wish in Tír Na Nollag.

This week we put up our Christmas tree. I had kept all the decorations from last year and hadn't got the chance to buy any new ones so I improvised a little as I wanted a bit of variation this year. To me, wooden or handmade decorations are the best but I didn't have a lot of time so while putting up the decorations I made these 3 quick decorations in 15 minutes! I used what I could find around the house or in my crafts stash.
Wooden peg reindeer: 2 pegs, some foam, glue, scissors, twine (for hanging), red marker and googly eyes if you're lucky!
He has a lonely look going on but he was the first decoration on the tree. Probably explains it!
Polaroids: Grab some snaps, punch a hole and thread your choice of ribbon through.
Naked baby photos are optional!
Glitter baubles: I spray painted a few of the silver baubles I had from last year and sprinkled glitter on the bottom halves of them before the paint dried.
Super quick, super easy and now my tree looks more 2013 than 2012!
