Christmas Eve Outfit

This Christmas was all about the tacky holiday sweater for me.
I made my own and will continue to embellish it year after year.  It will be glorious.
My passion for tacky Christmas apparel spread to my co-worker who was inspired to make a tacky Christmas dress! 
So, Christmas Eve we both wore our tacky get-ups to work.

Here we are in all our tackiness:

I had customers very tentatively say things like "wow, what a sweater..." and then they would look relieved and laugh when I told them it was supposed to be tacky.  A few people told me I would totally win an ugly Christmas sweater contest and one lady stopped my in the mall food court just to tell me how wonderful it was.  All in all, I think this sweater was a success!

Christmas morning I wore my tacky Christmas sweater with red flannel pj pants and then with jeans to the church service.
I plan to add more snowflakes to the sleeve for next year and also some candy canes.  I can't belive I don't have any candy canes!

Oh, and please, please steal this idea:  a Calvin & Hobbes Snowman sweater!  How fabulous would that be?!  I think I may have to expand my Christmas sweater collection.

Holiday Cheer

I'll be honest, working in retail during the holiday season is not all that fun sometimes.  Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do to get through it.  For me, it's dressing in ridiculous holiday outfits.  Today, for example, on the eve of Christmas Eve I wore my husband's tacky Christmas tie to work.  And rocked it, if I do say so myself ;)

 the close-up, behold the magnificance as FF would say...
well, let's face it, in this case she probably would not...
 Do you embrace tacky holiday clothing?  Do you shudder when you see others wearing it?
Well, just wait and see what I wear on Christmas Eve!

Oh the Holidays!
I'm up to my ears in baking, wrapping, cleaning....I don't know how mum's survive this holiday!

Here's a laugh from Helene...aka The Coop Keeper.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Fun

Tonight we had a little Christmas Party at home for the youth group we host.   Part of the fun was handing everyone marshmallows and various decorating items for them to make their own snowman.  Well, snow-creature would be more accurate.
These were mine.  Look, she's skiing!

This snowman riding an abominable snow cat of sorts won the prize!

The group's finished products!

Of course, it's not a party without a tacky Christmas sweater.  I started this one this afternoon.  I plan to add to it throughout the holiday season.  Any and all suggestions are welcomed!  
More glitter is on the way!

I saw this website the other day and it cracked me up!  
Check out their Sarah Palin sweater!

I hope you all are enjoying the holidays, whatever your beliefs.
Tell me, what traditions are your enjoying this time of year?  Are you starting any new ones?  Are you proudly wearing ugly clothing?  If so, I want pictures!
