Some Days It's So Ugly, You Just Have to Laugh

Have you ever started out making a bead and just not have it turn out as you intended?

Meet my scary Christmas frog.  Holy cow, this one is a doozy.  Not only is he ugly, but he's quite large too.

I am not sure what was going through my head when I thought a frog with a Santa hat would be fun to make.  I think part of it was the color juxtaposition of the green frog playing against the red hat.  And I wanted to try the horizontal line for his eyes.  Well as you can see, the glass experiment got out of hand.  I have more photos shown in my etsy shop listing.  I listed him because there might be someone else who would enjoy laughing at him too.

Too large, really funny looking, not shaped right and a huge pink tongue sticking out.  I don't know how I missed adding a bug or a Christmas candy to the end of it.  But in the end, this bead really makes me giggle.  Yes, he's funny looking, but some days my beads are so ugly, I just have to laugh.   Have you ever made a bead that affected you that way?

And who knows, if the right person kisses him, maybe he'll turn into a Prince?
