“When Good Crafts Go Bad”…Part 2ish

I never thought I would ever top this insane craft magazine.

But I did. Ohhhh….I so did.

I found this beauty today…and it…is….amazing….ly….horrible.

bigxmas240 pages of…. absolute garbage! Much like the Santa on the cover.

bigxmas1Oh look! Delores is beckoning us in to see her 1964 world of glue and crazy.

bigxmas2Up first…a bread Nativity scene.  Or what happens when you serve “lima bean surprise” and rolls to your 8 year old son for dinner….and leave him unattended for 10 minutes.

bigxmas4Bird choir….and Tippi Hedren starring as the cherub.

xmas9Hold on!  You are telling me those are forks? Give me a moment….let me see if I can tell where the forks are because all I’m seeing is tree branches.

xmas8“WHAT? The Johnsons are at the door? They’re carrying gifts??? Stall them while I whip some presents up in the kitchen!  Hold on…hand me that featherduster first!”

xmas11“WHAT? The Johnsons are staying for dinner? Quick…grab everything out of the hydrator and start sticking them on the FORK TREE!”

bigxmas5Evidently, the stable was located in a flood plain.

bigxmas7Nothing says “Happy Holidays!” like purposely burning your house down.

xmas10Sadly, Delores found out that the only one who appreciated her holiday art was Mr. Santa Head.  But even he was creeped out by the dinner she threw him.

This magazine is a true gem.

Oh…and if you liked these crafts o’garbage…you’ll like this….and this too.

“Turkey Wing” Seashells

turkeywingpictureMy son and I found these beautiful seashells recently on one of our shelling adventures on the gulf coast of Florida. These Arca Zebra seashells, known as “Turkey Wing” seashells, are absolutely gorgeous.

Named for the similarity to turkey wings, these clam shells can be found on most of the beaches of Florida and all the way up the coast to North Carolina.

Gobble, gobble…beach style!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
