once pretty

this one cost me.
after the 86th time i heard them say,
but mom, that's not pretty!
as i decoupaged those cheap glitter-smattered ornaments
with those old le petit echo de la modes,
i decided the only way to solve this problem
was to buy them their own christmas tree
to decorate as they wished.
which i did,
and they had a grand time doing so
(i told you we're in the spirit early this year),
but am i still hearing
how i've ruined those once-pretty ornaments?
of course. . .

i still have to seal them,
but at least i'm happy
with the way they turned out.
