The above is Peanut’s very first Christmas ornament. I found the clay (or whatever it is, plaster probably) Converse-style shoe at Hobby Lobby and painted it. It was originally off-white with red trim. Totally fugly. So I painted it because I’m frickin’ awesome at crafts.
It might a unique baby’s first Christmas ornament but let’s face it – all of the cutesie ones are kinda stupid looking. I didn’t want to get her a pacifier or bottle ornament because she doesn’t use either of those (and they don’t sell giant veiny tit ornaments at Hobby Lobby). The ‘baby in a manger’ ones are way too religious for my liking and the teddy bears are too generic and obvious.
ANYWAY. I am trying to like Christmas for Peanut’s sake. I want to get excited. I really do.
But then I remember that she’s a baby and has NO IDEA what Christmas is so I think that I get a free pass to be ornery for another year.
BLAH BLAH BLAH DISCLOSURE: Hobby Lobby didn’t pay me to mention them on my blog. They SHOULD pay me because I go to their store like every other fucking day. Maybe I should get a job there. I’d always have Sundays off. But then I’d have to sell giant metal crosses and scrapbook supplies and silk flowers to old people. Nevermind.
