Ahhh crafts.

This may come as a shock to you, but I–yes, I–am the creator of the ugliest angel ornament *EVER*.

I discovered it in a box of Christmas tree ornaments at my parents’ house, as if to remind me–before I embarked on a stack of sewing projects I’ve been planning–why I *DO NOT SEW*. See the fine craftsmanship? I especially love that the floral pattern is going sideways. The random sequin detail is also nice, as is the jingle bell belt accessory I’ve given her. And the gold rick-rack halo.

To underscore my absolute sewing genius, I also found this gorgeous miniature snowman pillow.

You will note the beautifully raw edge–on *top* mind you–which I clearly did not feel like stitching by hand.

Which is why I work with paper and glue.
