JGT Christmas Tale

"Come on Ivy! Everyone is bringing something special and crafty to the party, but you." Justice exclaimed, crossing her arms to complete her pout. "How hard is it to go on to google and look up instructions for a quick Christmas craft?"

"Not hard," Ivy replied with a nonchalant manner. "Look, I just don't care that much. My holiday is more like… Halloween. I like spooky things. Do I look like a Christmas person to you?" Ivy really didn't feel like getting into this.

"Your name is Ivy Holly." Justice pointed out with a non-impressed look painted on her face.

"I didn't choose my name!" Ivy retorted quickly. "You can blame my wannabe parents for that. God, they piss me off. I am not a Christmas baby elf girl."

"You were born on Christmas Eve!"

"I didn't choose my birthday, Justice!" Ivy exclaimed, throwing her hands up. "But fine. Whatever. I'll bring a crafty decoration or desert or whatever to Mia's party. Just stop pestering me."

The perky and persuasive Justice's eyes lit up with success. "Yay! I'll tell Mia! Now I'm like thirty minutes late to my babysitting gig so I gotta scram-"

"Wait." Ivy interrupted. "You decided to be thirty minutes late to your job just to convince me to do something Christmasy?"

"Uhhh… yes?" Justice replied in the form of a question. "Now I'm gonna be even later bye!" Like a flash, Justice was gone from the room. Ivy only slapped her forehead with a sigh.

"Okay Google, don't disappoint me. Give me something nice and easy." Ivy commented aloud as her fingers typed words into the google search bar. She pressed enter, then watched the results load with about as much enthusiasm as a cat taking a bath. "And I swear if I see a SINGLE christmas light I'm going to riot."

Ivy continued to click and search until she was on her fifteenth search term. She let out an inhuman growl of frustration. "GIVE ME SOMETHING EASY YOU FREAK!" Right after she spoke, the results loaded. The fifth result caught her eye.

"This will do," Ivy said with a shrug. "Just Girly Things? What kind of name is that? It's like those stupid posts on Instagram. Whatever." With her words, Ivy clicked on the link of the weirdly named site.

Stuck doing a craft for a party that you are NOT interested in? Well your sisters here at JGT got you covered girl! We here at JGT LOVE Christmas, and have lots and lots of Christmas things for you! Continue reading to see the list I've compiled for you of EASY Christmas crafts!

Number one: Cotton ball snowman!

"That seems easy enough," Ivy commented. "God, this page is hideous though." Ivy pushed herself from the swivel chair at her desk, opened the hall closet that resided right outside her bedroom door, grabbed a pack of non-opened cotton balls, closed the closet door, then returned to her chair.

What you'll need:
1.) Cotton balls! Duhhhhh! I would get a pack of 100 considering you'll likely want to make multiple. But for a less melty look, you can get white pom-poms! But I think cotton balls reflect the snow texture better. Lol!

2.) Buttons! Tinny buttons! For eyes!

3.) Toothpicks! So you can cut the end to use as noses!

4.) Glue! Wet Glue actually.

5.) Scissors!

6.) Felt or fabric to cut out any desired accessories!

"Damn it. I Don't have any of that shit." Ivy's eyes scanned the surface of her desk. She spotted a half-empty tube of wet glue, a pair of scissors, and a sharpie marker.

"That'll do."

So I see that you don't want to use the actual supplies! That's so sad sister :( Here! I gotta covered! Merry Christmas!

Now on Ivy's desk rested a woven basket holding all the supplies the craft had called for, as well as a red bow tied around the handle. Ivy looked at her screen, screaming.

"What the fuck? What the fuck? It's haunted!" She pushed her chair back from the desk so fast it fell backward, dumping her onto the floor with a pained 'oof.' She pushed herself to stand, then slowly crept back over to her desk to read what the demented computer had for her to see.

You don't need to be scared! (`◕‸◕´+) It makes me SOOOOO sad. I handle Christmas here at JGT dear sister! You could be a perfect addition! That would be SOOOO cool. All you have to do to join me as a Christmas sister is to do the craft! Your name is perfect for it too!

"Leave me ALONE!" Ivy screamed. "I don't know what this is, but I am NOT in the mood! Look, I hate Christmas! It's a stupid holiday run by a stupid religion!"

*gasps SUPER loud* Oh no! Has Satan corrupted your soul? Christmas is a Christian Holiday! OOOOOOOO. OOOOOHHHH my gosh. You're an angel! You're a trapped angel! Oh that's so exciting! Me too! Christmas lights kinda do look like police sirens. Especially the flashy ones. And a stranger creeping into your house in the middle of the night? That is so sad that Christmas reminds you of your childhood in this way :( I hate that for you! I get how you're feeling. I was like you! But I can help!

"What…" Wake up. Come on Ivy. Wake up. This isn't happening.

You're stuck on earth! AN angel in a human's body! Please come with me sister! I can help you be at peace with Christmas again!

"I-I'm just dreaming…" Ivy stuttered. "I'm just having a nightmare. This isn't real."

If I can't help you, I'll never forgive myself.

"And she said she would! So then I had to leave! I never thought… Oh God, I can't help but think this is somehow my fault…" Justice rambled to the police officer that stood alongisde her in her best friend's room.

"Hey! I got into the computer. Got a webpage pulled up that may interest you." A female officer announced.

The others in the room turned their attention to the computer screen.
