This was submitted by Reader Lily and Reader Cheryl at almost the same exact time! And just NO!!!! They say it's currently up on etsy for sale RIGHT NOW!! Quick while they are still available! Go get the perfect baby shower gift! Show that Mom to be what she's going to be in for! My question is do they also have a c-section doll? Cause that's the one I need.

This Christmas tree was submitted by Reader Lisa! This is DEFINITELY the ultimate in redneck Christmas decorations. That or a college student. I will admit though that it had to take FOREVER! Totally reminds me of the "Beer Wall" my friends in college had. If you knocked it over there was not happy consequences!

Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for cute little flowers and glitter on your toes, but full on snow scenes? Really?? Who is going to get close enough to actually see the artwork? Who would WANT to get close enough to see. Plus... It's WINTER... put on some socks! It's cold out there!

Reader Leah of mommyish.net submitted this just last night, and it was so great I just had to post it today (even though I have other great submissions in my inbox!)
"Hey Billy Bob, what should we use as ornaments this year?"
"Hmmm... Besty Jo, what about these beer cans?"
"Billy Bob! We did that last year! We can't do it again until NEXT year!"
"Ok, I've got some extra cars in the yard here, why don't we use the headlights?"
"Or... THE WHEELS!"
"Oh Betsy Jo, I'm so glad your my wife/cousin!"

So... um.... yeah. Thanks Reader Jill for submitting a site with some wonderful gems like this! There are definitely more, but you'll just have to wait for them! I definitely debated over titles for this post, one being "Be careful or she'll drop a fish on you too!" Um, Sarah? Wasn't that supposed to be HOUSE not fish? Yes, yes it was... Or there was "Walking around on those? What do you call them? Oh FEET!" I do like what I went with though.

"What can I do to really make this ornament special? OK, I need it to sparkle and shine... tinsel! OK, where can I put the tinsel... well... it's not working on the outside, it just kind of hangs there, hmmm.... OH! Inside is perfect! Now that the outside is bare, we can't have that! Everyone likes flowers right? Oh good. It's sooooo beautiful now!

Here's a creative ornament (ha ha). I assume that this is a giant beehive or else I'm supposed to use creative thinking to figure this one out. But an ornament is not an ornament unless it has pom poms on it. Wait! I do see some glittery pom poms! This is a real ornament!

Reader Sue Ann sent in some wonderful pictures from a craft fair of some sort that she went to. We'll be featuring a few of them over the next couple days. This is my favorite, cause I just love stuff that you have no idea what it's really supposed to be. Eyes? Mountains? Boobs? You decide! Every time a bell rings, a crafter gets ideas for ugly things!

We must have received this submission about 30 + times! Thank you to everyone for thinking of us when this arrived in your inbox. For those who haven't seen these little gems before... I only have really one thing to say about them... At least they aren't painted red.
On a totally separate note, for our craft loving friends, Ailene and I have some friends that are going through a hard time... The Barkdull family has been awaiting Matt's kidney transplant for a while because of various complications. He has been on dialysis for a long time which has created its own hardships. He always has a great attitude through all of his medical problems. You would never even know that he is sick. It looks like the kidney transplant is going to happen after Christmas at the end of December or first of January. Matt will obviously have to take some time off to recovery and it will be a difficult time for the entire family. Our friend has set up an etsy shop to sell various crafts that are very cute (and not at all made of any feminine hygiene products). Please visit the shop by clicking here and pick some cute things up to help a family.
All proceeds from purchases between December 1st and 31st will go directly to the family to help pay for transplant costs and expenses.

This lovely craft was submitted by reader Allyson. This is just wrong on so many levels! First when I'm eating my Thanksgiving Turkey I really don't want to think about checking for a child underneath! Why would you put your baby through the pain of wondering if it's going to be eaten too? Poor baby!

Since I wanted you to be able to get a head start on creating this centerpiece I had to post it today. Of course this is made out of painted tampons. What holiday table would be complete without feminine hygiene products intermingled with all the yummy tasty food. Cause it TOTALLY doesn't ruin my appetite, right?

I was going to save this little gem until December (it being a wreath and all), but I decorated my house for Christmas yesterday, and thought it was fitting. This was submitted by a reader (and I apologize, because I can't remember which one). I believe the reader stated that this was at a friends house! I'm sorry reader that you have very strange friends. So lets get to the actual wreath.... ummm... first there is a full on BIRD sitting in it! A BIRD people! Not to mention the color or the generous use of feathers. I weep to think how many birds had to suffer for this person to have such a wreath.

Washing after the family is never a glamourous job ... Until now! Turn those icky, yellow scrubbing gloves into some fashionable. Laura B., who sent in this little number, points out that the fabric on the end is a plastic shower curtain and who wouldn't love the darling rickrack! And these can be made to suit anyone's taste! And after you're all done cleaning, why not leave them out near the sink to show off how well they match your kitchen's decor.

Really? I have no idea what this is even supposed to be?? I keep trying to figure it out and I keep coming up short. It has hands, this I know.... and possibly some legs? There is just nothing I can figure out about the rest of it. Please I beg you! Put me out of my misery and tell me what it is (or supposed to be I guess).

While I must admit that I'm impressed with the handiwork (pardon the pun), It's still pretty darn ugly. This, among many other food art items was sent in to us by reader Janet. Because, you know, when I'm eating bread, I like to pretend it's a human hand.

Because I know we are all looking to consolidate our closets, now we have the solution. Take the shirts and make one really weird looking one! The sad thing is the shirts she destroyed actually look pretty cute, the one she made... not so much. There is just so much wrong with this craft it's hard to know where to begin! First there is the ruffle at the bottom. Is she going for a really short mini skirt look? What is the point? Then you have the vest looking thing which is then attached to solid pink sleeves. Lastly to top it off... to give you the best idea of the fashion sense is the pants chosen to accompany the "shirt"... couldn't find some blue jeans? Decided to go for the clash.... OK.

This fabulous wreath is the perfect capper to the huge turnout of voters yesterday. It looks like someone took parts of a really foofy wedding dress and added some stars. Not only are they stars though, they are stars WITHIN the stars! Genius! I really don't get the circle within the star though, that may be a bit much, and really serve no purpose.

Ahhh, older ladies strike again, as these are the only type of women that would even think of this strange looking purse. The hand is complete with nail polish, a wedding ring, and a handkerchief! It doesn't look large enough to actually hold anything, and would anybody really even CARRY this around. Wow! What a lovely hand you have there! Ugh, just wrong!

And what better way to celebrate than with the craft that just goes too far. These ghosts are easy to make and easy to hang since they already come with strings. Need another hint? They aren't found in the seasonal Halloween department, try looking in the feminine hygiene aisle. Got it? Yeah, I think it's pretty gross too. Enjoy your Halloween! And thanks to Natalie for sending it in!

Reader Natalie W. (also the owner of Chicken Coop Crafts (ad on the left!)) submitted this page to us. It is an ugliest pillow contest! While I couldn't copy ALL of the wonderfully ugly pillows, I did pick my absolute favorite. First is the hideously large mushrooms. Now if that wasn't enough there are the HUGE yarn balls on the four corners. I fear the room that this pillow is supposed to go with! Someone MUST have been high when creating this!

What's worse than an ugly Christmas sweater? A Halloween one! Why would one think to do the background in lime green? Was there a sale on green or is it that black might not show off the dangling feet of the pumpkins, which are, of course, the best thing about it. Watch out librarians and grade school teachers .... there's another holiday to celebrate with an ugly sweater! If you see any of these tragedies, please send us pictures!

Hide the kiddos today....I thought I'd continue the condom crafts with this little gem sent in by Cindy A. I know that when my husband and I get into a fight, I would just love a bouquet of these instead of beautiful red roses. This is just sooo much better, right?? At least they attempted to hide the tip, right? In the immortal words of Joey Tribiani... "EW! EW EW EW!"

Again, we go just a little bit too far in our efforts to go "green". Every time you pick up your kids they will start craving Caprisun, and wonder why you are holding out on them (since you clearly have plenty to share). Next time I'm taking a drink I'll have to think to myself ... but will this make a good bag?

A new low has been reached in electronic gear. The one thing I'm worried about is where do the headphones plug in? Please don't tell me in the back! The other thing that I don't GET about this little gem is why does it have green legs? Really? could you not make the whole thing white? Or at least somewhat resembling an actual animal instead of some animal that has been running through green paint recently (or worse has had a horrible injury that has left him with gangrene)

Who knows what terrible accident this stuffed dog? has endured. It was tragic though for sure. What I don't get about this animal is, again, the market? Who in their right mind would give this to a child? Here is the scenario I picture...What happened to fluffy Mommy?... Here honey, this is an image of what has happened to your dog. I'm sorry. Poor child will be scarred for life.

OK, I'm sorry, I had to do it. I know many of you actually love this look, but I totally hate it. Not the baby of course. The baby is super duper cute! It's the monstrosity sitting atop the baby's head. It is almost the entire size of the baby's face! I can think of better ways to prove that my child is a girl, and I'm not that creative, than a giant flower getting ready to eat her face. Again, I'm sorry for those that love this, I've been silent about it for way too long! I must speak out against babies with giant flowers attached to their heads!
