In support of the "if you make really ugly stuff no one will copy you" theory, here's a contest!

Post a link to something in your shop that you privately think is hideous. Don't be ashamed! We've all made something we hate but we secretly hope will sell anyway. Who knows, maybe someone will love it and buy it for its sheer monstrousity!

The contest will run for a week or two, and then, based on everybody's comments and my own personal gag reflex, I will mail the winner a prize of unbelievable ugliness and low value!

Let's see it, people!

I kind of really hate these cards:

I feel like all they need is a little macaroni and gold spray paint, and they'd be complete...

I love it much so I posted this on the OTHER ugly thread! ...notice the price came down on these bad boys from $10.00...

Problem is ...I didn't know they were ugly until my daughter lauged at them and told me...those are ugly!

Here's a bead I made that I secretly call primordial ooze! It looks like something gross that landed on your windshield :}
