Along with the white elephant gift exchange at my favorite local bar, there was an ugly sweater contest last night. For about three days last week I worked on one. My mom lent me the sweater and I pinned a tinsel garland around the length of the sweater and on the front and back pinned on curled ribbons. Sadly, didn't win the contest, but others liked it. And I had to keep it on a hanger in my car so that the ribbons would not get smashed while I was driving.
