Seriously, the house looks like Christmas exploded all over it. Even though the floors get swept and or vacuumed every night there is still tinsel everywhere and somehow Chewie and Spanky always seem to find that one stray piece of the teeniest tiniest bit of it. But that is not my reason for writing today.
Today it’s all about why the house looks like that… Ugly Christmas Sweaters!
Boy did Mommy and I have fun creating these this year. I wasn’t sure we would top the creativity of last year but I’m so pleased (actually down right giddy) with what we’ve created this year. There have been several sweaters that, once created, one of us (or the other) have stated “I don’t know if I want to sell it, I really like this one!”
This is just a smattering of some of our eBay listings.

This sweater is from the Eighties with a vintage cloth storybook page... the colors matched so well.

This is one sweater that Mommy really wants to keep. Somehow the photos just don't do it justice. It is body hugging yet slimming and oh so cute in person.

A little insider's secret... Rudolph was made out of an unfinished sock monkey! I wasn't sure what I wanted to name this sweater, so many ideas, then I thought that "this must be how grandma got run over."
Of course, if you want to see more you can check us out on eBay – username Libbynell.
Also, thanks for passing this along and sharing with anyone you know who may be in the market for an Ugly Christmas Sweater.
And as a post script – some people have been asking (and others didn’t need to ask) the live model for our pics is none other than Mommy herself. We love to joke that she’s not your typical 63-year-old grandma! You’ll know why if you take a look at our listings or wait for one of my follow-up posts.
