Stamping and crafting verses:
The Cardmaking Verse
It all began with just one card
And just one pad too
Of course, things couldn't stay that way
And shortly, I had two.
This was quickly followed
By more cards (three and four)
The craving had now started
I wanted more and more.
A teeny weeny garden set
With a lovely little rose
The cutest little teddy bear
I must have one of those.
A couple of those Inkums sets
A rollagraph or two
And then another coloured ink
For stampers I must do.
I really love those bears
And country ones are nice
I see that Penny Black
Has some lovely little mice.
I think that I'm addicted now
It started just last year
I now can't pass a catalogue
Without just one more bear.
And then I joined some lists
Upon the internet
From here I learned of other things
That I must really get.
I want to try some brayering
And pearl-ex powders too
Craft on polymer clay
There's lots of things to do.
My husband is somewhat bemused
As are my children (three)
As I produce yet more things
Keen for them to see.
And now I'm signed up for some swaps
One's a birthday card
The other is a teddy theme
Now that can't be too hard
I'd better go and start them now
I've six of each to do
I want to get them in the post
And then start something new......
If crafting is a petty crime
I will soon be doing time
If crafting is against the law
I'll do time forever more
I sit and craft from morn 'til night,
my family do despair,
but armed with heat gun, ink pads too,
I really just don't care
The more I see, the more I want,
I cannot see an end,
to sticky pads and funky foam,
I have to spend, spend, spend
I made a candle, just last week,
it turned out quite a mess,
I think I'll stick to making cards,
coz that's what I do best
(Written by Karla)
Crafts are here, crafts are there.
My crafts supplies are everywhere.
I really should clean this mess,
But I like it, I confess.
Floor is littered, chairs are piled,
Kitchens looking pretty wild,
On the table, counter too,
Seems that any place will do.
Hall is stacked with cartons high,
Filled with things folks like to buy.
Garage is full, but so far.....
There's still room to park the car.
I never have an idle day,
New ideas come my way.
Don't know yet what I'll create,
But my Imag-e-nation's great.
My family smiles, they don't complain,
Although at times I am a pain.
But when all is said and done,
I really am a crafty one.
