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.
