Crafter's Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, I'm stood by the tree,
and wondering what Santa brought just for me.
"Could it be card stock, ink pads or lace
or maybe some stamps" I said - with a smile on my face.

And that's when I heard him... "Hi Santa" I said.
He replied "You know, good girls should be in their bed".
"I know I should Santa and now I've been caught,
but I was just so excited to see what you brought".

"Well, let's take a look in this room where you work."
He shook his head quickly and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear -
"You've got enough cr*p, I'll see you next year ! "


Hope you all have a lovely Christmas folks!

Oh this is cute (and sadly too true! Methinks Santa will say exactly that to me) But that's ok, I've been my own Santa, cause I know just what I wanted! Big Hugs & Mewwy Christmas. I'm intrigued by the title of the post I saw under this one, so off I go to see what early goodies the Good Girl got! TFS

Glennis said...

Too true!! A happy Christmas to you as well

Karen Petitt said...

Oh boy! I think this fable applies to all of us and it made me and DH in particular smile! I do know I have a couple of crafty presents from DH because I whined about needing two more sets of Sheena stamps and Aquatints! But I had me mum get me pj's and slippers so I know I wasn't too naughty!
Di, I want to wish you and Mr Len a very Merry and Happy Christmas! I feel like I have been blessed to meet so many like minded peeps who are lovely! Karen xx

Liz said...

LOL! How true!

I've just picked up the June copy of Quick Cards made easy, because there are the instructions for making a waterfall card in there that I wanted. Imagine my surprise when a familiar face was there on the letters page with her 'card in a box'! I hadn't discovered Pixie's Crafty Workshop back then.

Have a wonderful Christmas...... and whatever Santa says, you can't have too many crafty things. ;-). xx

Kathleen said...

How funny, how true, how the hell did you think of that, how are you going to cope with no presents, how did you let the Crazy Gang kidnap Parsnip and more importantly how could I get by without your lovely posts and friendship.

Hello Di,

Oh, how I needed a good laugh! I definitely came to the right place! Unfortunately I've caught a cold and have been out of sorts since yesterday. I'm hoping to be good enough to meet the family for bowling tomorrow.

Much love to you and Len,

Kay

Did you write that? You should say so or is it A. Nonni Mouse! That is fantastic, Di! Email me and let me know will you? I'd like to reprint it on my blog! Thank you! Hugs, Darnell

Bonnie said...

LOL, I'm sure glad Santa didn't take a peek in my craft room! I love my new toys, but really need to clean out some oldies to make room. Trouble is all the oldies and goldies!
