Pinterest Fail

Ah, Pinterest.  You make it look so easy.


Look, how simple!   I'll just tape some old Christmas lights on the wall and pop my sweet baby up on the bed with some ornaments for a super cute Christmas card photo.

 Nailed it!


Ok, to be fair I did get some really great photos on the plaid blanket, which you'll see at the end of this post.  But this Pinterest pose didn't pan out.  First, I wasn't able to wrangle the cats off the guest bed. Then I didn't want to mess with untangling and taping up lights with a wriggly baby.  Meanwhile I was running out of daylight.  So I decided to throw a blanket outside on the grass and try for a cute tummy time pose.  No such luck!



The ornaments were way too tasty and interesting.  These outtakes made me giggle and I thought they'd make you giggle, too.



I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas with lots of quality time spent with loved ones.  I know we did.  

Wishing you a happy 2014!

  2. Pinterest has led me to overestimate my abilities many a time. Your blanket pics turned out just as nicely, in my opinion! Hard to take a bad picture of Baby Jane :)
