Another worst Christmas gift for the Holiday Softie Awards…This time it’s not a gift I received, but
something I gave as a present last Christmas. I thought a CD with ‘Happy
Christmas Songs’ would be a great gift for my children, who love to listen
and dance to music, and sing along with it. Unfortunately they loved the CD
so much that we were still listening to Christmas songs in July. We hoped
the CD would get lost, that it would get scratched (as always happens to our
favourite CD’s), we wanted to use it as a frisbee…
This soft cd is the perfect toy: it doesn’t make any noise, you can put your
finger in it, you can put it on your tummy or your head, or you can use it
as a hat..
I made this doll for the Holiday Softie Awards, she’ll be categorized under the ‘worst christmas gift’
In our/my childhood, we always got new clothes around Christmas time. Those new clothes weren’t meant for daily wearing though, no, they were meant for special occasions such as Christmas or New Year’s Eve, or any other feast or party that year. Sometimes my mother sewed those clothes herself, like that dress she made me once, with a little mouse embroidered on it. How awful that dress was, the fabric was all itchy and scratchy. God, did I HATE that dress… I never wanted to wear it. I’d rather sit in my underpants instead of wearing it. Pretty festive, don’t you think?
And here’s the link to other great softies for the Holiday Softie Awards 2007.
UPDATE: My itchy dress doll made it to the top 5 finalists in the categorie ‘worst gift ever got’. Please vote for her: click here!

That sneaky merrylegs pink horse, she definitely feels at home right now!
She wanted to read a book and therefore she needed glasses. I told her I didn’t have glasses for horses, and guess what she did? She just snatched them away from my little daughter, who was a bit upset by this mischievous action. But suddenly the pink horse realized that she couldn’t read at all…, so she returned the glasses to my daughter and I ended up reading a story to both of them. Happy ending!
Katy from I’m a ginger monkey organized a great give-away last week! And guess what? I won the first price! This lovely merrylegs pink horse arrived yesterday. I am so happy, it’s the first time I ever won something! This is so great, thank you very much Katy!!
This pink horse is very happy in our house, all those loving girls around her… she follows them everywhere…
